Indeed but are they suitable for group projects rather than personal projects? From the few you need to find enough people with sufficient design interest and/or sufficient build interest to form a group. Opting for a design with a high demand rather than one with low demand will increase the chances of this happening.

Wow, well done! You're on a different level then I, mine will ply boxes with milk paint. I will let the wife and kids pick the color.

You're always gonna be right on this one, I just want a giant speaker project and don't have the capabilities to design myself.

I understand, one of those "I 'll never do that again" projects, but it was worth it, it's unique IMO no matter how an speaker is good sounding and perfect, i can't just overlook the design and just enjoy it.

People do seem to want high sensitivity on their next build.
