First off, a product is worth what people will pay for it.
Take a good DIY design. Now decide to put it into production. You need to get a business license, rent space for production, warehousing, and offices. Then pay people to document the design, do testing, create BOMs, locate and buy materials, receive and put the part away. Now hire people to take orders, pull the parts, fabricate the enclosures, assemble the sub, inspect and test it, package it for shipping (packing material is an added cost), ship it..... These people need tools, supplies, work benches and other furniture... and on top of that, you have to eat any warranty repairs. Now you need to hire people to do your bookkeeping, run payroll, pay your payroll taxes, get employee insurance.......These people need office furniture, supplies, computers, software..... I haven't even touched liability insurance, marketing and all the other costs of doing business.
Let me see you do all this and sell into a saturated market. Tell me you can do this for $600 a sub and still not lose your shorts.
