Default WTB: Already Built DIY Speakers

All,

I am looking for an already built speaker. Preferably a Zaph design (and that is only because I have heard one and was impressed) - but I am open to others.

I understand that many of you find this hobby to be extremely addictive and often think about your next project before you even get done with the one your working on. If you find yourself in that situation, where you have already built a speaker and are looking to collect funds for a new project via selling your previous project, please get in touch with me.

Although I am open to anything at the moment, I am leaning towards performance more than value. For example, if I had to choose between say Zaph SR-71 vs ZRT (or ZD 5) - I will choose the latter (given that it is not cost prohibitive).

Thanks,
D

What's your budget? A pair of SR71s can be done for <$700. You can't even buy the drivers for the ZRT for <$1k. I doubt someone would give you much of a discount off of raw materials cost for a completed speaker, so a budget would help guide people about how serious you were vs. what their labor was worth.

I have a pair of Jim Griffin design Jordan mini-monitors using JX92S and Aurum Cantus G2Si drivers. They are in Parts Express .25 ft3 curve sided maple cabinets. Will sell for $400/pr plus shipping. I can send pictures.

Hi:

You have a PM concerning my pair of ZRT's.

BTW, Bear5K is absolutely right.

Default zaph speakers

I started with 5 SR-71s but I think I have sold 4 of them The last one is available cheap if you're still interested. you could buy a single new speaker and save alot of money. The kit is really easy to build. If all else fails you would just follow the speaker you allready have as a template. Let me know. It's a good deal.

Where are you located? I have a pair of Zaph BAMTM in ported floor standing cabinets that have recently become surplus, but I am not willing to ship.

I have a pair of Modula MTM's designed by John Marsh over on HTGuide forum. They are in a MLQW aligned cabinet that sim's like this:

They won Best of Show @ diyAtlanta this past August. One of the speakers they beat were Jim Griffin's (he brought them) JX92S and Aurum Cantus G2Si MLQW's, though just barely... The port interior has since been painted to a dark brown. The above photo was earlier at diyDayton.

I also would part with a pair of Lynn Olson designed ME2's.

Reason for selling: I have a speaker building habit. I need to finance it.

Thanks, John

...my first time working with quartered sycamore (pop a cherry!). After a disapointment buying such over the internet (unseen), I found a source and sorted through the bunks. I think it works well with the bubinga.
