Just so you know, I priced out each of the components of the Phil- BMR and this is what I came up with (I really hope Dennis gets a better price because these cost don't included labor, crossovers, bracing, fill etc). The RAAL is OEM, but every once in awhile a seller has them on ebay for 150 each. Ditto for the BMR, but I priced similar models. the woofer can be found at Madison Sound and of course, the cabinet at PE.
I came up with just over 1000 dollars for me to build it myself, not including crossover, etc. At the same time, i was looking at another brand and looked at the price of those driver, etc...and come up with less than 500 dollars of components in a speaker that was priced slight higher that the Phil-BMR. Dennis isn't getting that boat he has always wanted from the sale of the Phil-BMR!
