I guarantee they'd sell, and pretty quickly.

But after looking up your ad & links to the pics, it would be a sincere shame to risk them not going to someone who appreciates them. If there are no family or friends that would be good candidates, I'd be inclined to part them out.
It blows my mind how true this is. For instance, when I lived near Seattle, I could unload just about any speaker item. I sold a Kef subwoofer and quite a few drivers from Parts Express.

For damn near a year I've been trying to sell some drivers that I have in my garage, and it's just been crickets now that I live in San Diego. The people in San Diego just seem to have zero interest in DIY speakers.

Thanks for all the encouraging comments. The speakers have now been sold to a forum member.

Is any of this an affect from the Speakerlab days?

(I bought some JBL 2420ís for my PA in Seattle in spring of 1980.)

If you just want to sell your occasional random creation, you'll be hard pressed. The people who have good luck selling their DIY speakers have a decent internet presence, posting multiple builds on forums, Facebook and even their own websites along with valuable information about the speakers and audio in general, establishing trust between the seller and buyer. There's more to it than just sounding good. If your buyer isn't comfortable that you've built a product that will last and be supported if there are problems, you will have a hard time selling them no matter how good they sound.
