MSRP............$9,500 CDN = $9,408 USD per pair thus $4,704 USD per unit

Nope.
This is the most expensive I find:
GOTO-SG-5880 BL-flower magnet.....11 229Euro.
Or this woofer:

SG-38WNSSP
-38cm
-40 w
-110 db/w/m
-28 - 800 Hz

Price=8 924Euro.

Cheap enough for most of us.

Still the GOTO seems more expensive per unit - 11 229Euro.

Another very "cheap" will be ALE drivers.

Something more than 11 229Euros per driver??

See, I think it's really cool looking!

No accounting for taste, but my wallet is far from big enough to support the purchase of THOSE behemoths. They'd sure be fun to play with though!
