I agree.
Typical time is 3 to 6 months.
But some examples looks like a one-day design.

I definitely don't know how he did it but he might be the most prolific DIY builders in history.

One can "design" a single driver open baffle in about 5 minutes and spend the next 5 years moving it around the room

The art of speaker design is the choice of compromises. Even the very best speakers (where budget is less of a concern) are still a long way from “perfect” and different sets of compromises can lead to equally valid loudspeakers that sound quite different, work with different amplifiers, are best suited for different rooms… and more.

Some are more compromised than others. Some are designed with "intentional compromise". Some are designed by the marketing department with even more compromise.

I'd say 3 months for a 2way and 6 months for a 3way would be reasonable.
Those figures have no validity. It's like saying it take X amount of time to paint a masterpiece.
