As do I. I'm afraid I'll screw up the assembly and not get the best performance out of them. I'm really hoping it will be priced around $2000-$2500 assembled with amp plus shipping.

The assembly is nearly fool proof. Everything is pre-done for you so all you have to do is slide pieces into their place and put screws in pre drilled holes. I am guessing like Ivan said it should be only an hour or two worth of assembly.

Hehehe, yeah ....maybe but it also said "plus shipping" so that will probably be $400 shipping with all that lumber. Hardly under $1,000.

That would be great if the assembled one came in anywhere near $2000-2500 WITHOUT amp. I think the retail on the regular SPUD is 2250 and TH50 is around 3200. Neither of these prices include amplification. Unless Danley is going to do us all a huge favor and go against the trend of their current pricing structure, I would expect the finished version without amp to be around the same price as the TH50.

Very true. $2K-$3K without amp is pretty amazing.

The economics of the shipping cost kills this. 1/3 the net price goes to shipping the wood.

I was thinking maybe under $1000 total including shipping would be a good price point.

As most of us DIYer's procure our materials locally with maybe the exception of the driver, this keeps our costs down.

I'm all over precut CNC panels and Baltic Birch is definitely the way to go as it's superior for speaker cabinets and light to ship. I am just wondering how we can get the price of shipping down?

Is there even a possibility to go through local distribution chains? And if so I ponder on how much "overhead" will be added by adding middlemen.

Just my 2 cents

I was thinking the same thing.

The factory Lab12 drivers cost 300/pr at PE. Modified ones would be how much more? 400/pr? 500/pr?

Baltic birch per enclosure would be 125-150 maybe? I don't know how many sheets they use.

So if the price is 975 and the material is 550-650, that means $325-425 of CNC and man hours.

I'd like to save that 325-425 plus shipping by using plans and doing the cutting myself.

You guys are forgetting something, Tom Danley design. The best bass I have ever heard was from a folded horn sub in my home theater room. It only went down to 20 hz in room(flat) with a cab designed for 25 hz. It even played the Pulse movie scene at the same Db's as my 8 sono's. The visceral effects were less though. The midbass was better with just 2 of those then with 8 of my sono's but my sono's dominate the low end. I have always said if I could get a horn to get low I would be all over it, Here we are!

So 325 for plans and CNC. Can't assume they would give the plans away for free? Plus an additional ~150 for freight seems like a steal to me.

Yeah it's a steal, but if a person could buy just the drivers and plans, they might be able to build 2 for a little over the price of 1. I only mention it because my fiance has given me to green light to build a "riser" for the couch, but will no way let me build a "riser" that costs $1950+shipping.

"The economics of the shipping cost kills this. 1/3 the net price goes to shipping the wood."

Think freight.

A couple of years ago I shipped a 4' x 8' x 6" crate weighing 350 lb across the country *and* across the ocean to Norway for a bit over $500.

You can save a $100 or so by picking it up at the terminal nearest you.

I used freightquote.com

I'm with Looneybomber on this one, the "kit" is a steal at that price (and I have been a fan of Danley gear for a long time so I know this would kick ass and is a great price) but I'd rather source the materials locally and build it myself. This is the DIY area, ya know.
