Default what you you gents do with old projects?

Do you guys mostly sell off or salvage your old projects when it's time to upgrade? I'll probably be building quite a few speakers this summer, and was not particularly keen on having lots of old speakers around.

Ha!!! I like that one...
Just thinking of all the half finished projects in my room

If I finished them, then they very well could make good gifts.

Project speakers are a wonderful way to introduce people to audio. Got unfinished projects, find a youngster or two to finish them off with; gets you innexpensive labor and some great friendships.

I eventually pull the drivers and other parts and put the cabinets on the curb and they just disappear. Might be the little people. I buy a lot of speakers for $5 and $10 a pair that have rotted out woofs, pull the tweets and chokes and put those out and you know what? They are soon gone too. I always expect my wife to stop me and say these valuable objects are too good to put on the curb, but so far she has surprised me and said nothing.

i also buy speakers with rotted foam for 5-10 dollars at thrift stores. right now i have 3 pairs of early advents 1 pair ar 4x's some infinitys, jbls, epicures, klh's ect ect ect only prblem is i hate to get rid of any of them and i have two closetes full of speakers. i did give away a big pair of jvc speakers that were the first ones i ever replaced the foam on and after the cabinets fell apart on a pair of klh's i pulled the drivers and tossed the cabinets. my wife would love it if got rid of all the audio stuff but i keep tellin her that it was here first
