These "custom" speakers I found on my local craigslist look like a pair of 1970s speakers with some pioneer woofers in em.

Enjoy- http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/ele/3520451630.html

What in hell is wrong with you guys? You're evaluating them as if they were stereo speakers. Look at the headline on the first ad. It clearly says they're "sereo speakers."
That's completely different.

I like the missing dust cap on the midrange(?). I'm sure that just adds to the airiness.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

I suspect a large portion of the $1300 cost to build was spent on beer, liquor, and something to smoke.
