Default Selling your speakers....

Just curious, has anyone here ever sold their diy speakers and more to the point, sold them for more than it cost to put together!

The answer's going to be "no" in all but a few instances. Even excellently built excellent designs go for less as DIY efforts than the parts typically cost. That's because most people shopping completed speakers don't know until they have them in hand whether it's a good design or not, (and even then, not too often) and DIYers who would recognize a good design at a good price would usually rather build it themselves, often with modifications (that baffle should have big roundovers, what was he thinking!)

Sind audio in general is not just technical to most of the people, you have to be creative in "marketing" and also stand behind your construction, in that case I always got more than I paid.
