Are you looking for completed speakers, or just the cabinets? Per Curt & Jim, they welcome us to build the cabinets, and the owner would install the crossover and drivers.
Are you looking for an unfinished set, painted, or veneered?
Also, I'm assuming you want the ported version. Are you fine with the base stand the Statements stand on with a downfiring port, as seen here (this is Jim Holtz's pair):http://speakerdesignworks.com/sitebu...07-385x531.jpg
Will be picking up the MDF today to start the first pair for sale so the forum members can see the quality of work my friend does. He still hasn't come up with a baseline price as of yet, however since a lot of time goes into the Statements, I'm assuming an unfinished pair not including the drivers and crossover will be around $1,000 + actual freight shipping cost. Veneered will be an option as well.
Statement Center, Mini Statements, and Statement Monitor cabinets can also be built.
Many consider the Statement speakers to rival production counterparts that cost $8,000-$10,000.
