I gotta believe it is a little like Field of Dreams - If you build it, they will come.

If you make parts available for DIY prior to a roll-out of a completed 3-way SEOS speaker design I would be in. I love my Cheap Thrills, the louder they play, the better they sound. Based on everyone's comments here, must be a trait of the SEOS with a good compression driver.

A 3-way design with quality components would rock. Literally. Speaking for myself, $600-$1000 for a kit not at all out of range, and certainly not over priced.

We need more great people in this world like them.

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!

Man I wanted to hit the Southwick National one day, maybe they will put it back on the schedule at some point. I assume that was your home track. I respect you guys that can go fast in that deep sand.


I am going to say that at some point you will be back to riding motocross...once it's in your blood...
The "wick" just opened back up so perhaps. It's to late to add the dates or track to existing organizations this year so they are just doing open track days, which is better than racing IMO. Cheaper, and more riding time.

True about the open practice. But you risk becoming what we call in Georgia a "Professional Practicer". I almost am one now. .

Even a modest $10-$20 per speaker would help you in future endeavors. It's not like people could get the parts cheaper themselves at that price.

I don't want to see you get burnt out. That's what really matters.

^^^^^ What he said!

BTW, I can't help but feel a little giddy with all the updates to the DIYSoudgroup site. I'm still hitting refresh waiting for that Fusion-15

Sounds like step one should be a garage sale. I could be down for the right pair of Faitals or Celestions. Start a clearance section at DIY Sound Group and start listing a few at a time. Or put them on the 'bay.

I hope you bought those test drivers in pairs, selling off singles will be a bit tougher!

Erich just do a Kickstart project for the storage facility and tell us the link somewhere. Even with my very very small budget I would gladly chip in.
