If this was a kit for a company making it a business, I would guess the kits would have been $700+.
Can't thank Erich, Ryan, and the others involved in the SEOS project enough. I stole these speakers flat out.
I've been debating if something should be set up specifically to fund future projects, or dividing out to designers, or whatever. We'd all love to do more, but things are coming close to being maxed out for me the way they currently are. You should see the number of test woofers/CDs from Eminence, Celestion, Dayton, B&C, FaitalPro, etc are just sitting around after being tested or used for the first design. Shelves full. At some point we have to stop and figure out what the heck we're going to do with all of this before moving forward. Pallets full of flat packs, custom shipping boxes, etc, etc, etc.
Basically, I enjoy what I'm doing a lot, but there's a point coming where the warehouse space alone is completely maxed out, along with the DIY funds to do more as it gets spread out over more projects. Either cut back and not do much extra, or figure out how to expand by enough to make it worth while. The small 'warehouse' next to my landscape business is literally bursting at the seams with not much more usable space.
There should a 'build a storage building' jump starter program out there somewhere!
