Well, so far we have one sale total.
MOQ on cabinets? 20? 60 grills? Ballpark that at 8-12k.
MOQ on active 18? 25(we've never purchased in less than 50 iirc but let's TRY to make this feasible and use a very low MOQ of 25. Ballpark that at 7.5-10k
MOQ on PRs. 50? Ballpark that at 6-8k.
New amp stuff specific to this product? Meh, say 1k
All other misc (inner boxing, outer boxing)? say 1k
>$25,000 right there. This doesn't factor in ANY ancillary costs like cad time for the cabinet, the $1500(?) cost to us for the sample cabinet for us to approve from cincy(with grills), engineering time, website updates, dealer updates, etc. Oh and say $1500(?) total for a few 18 inch proto types and PR
proto types as well.
So we're closing in on 30k-40k pretty quick.
And that's keeping all the MOQs very low. That means our cost to build go way up as well. So now instead of a $2899 product it might be 3499. Did we just lose our one sale? Who's buying this now when you can get similar(or maybe even better) performance from the V3611 at $2249?
Double all the MOQs and get it down to $2899 and now it's a 70-80k initial investment. For one confirmed sale that we'd net maybe $200 on...
Hey, TRUST me. There's nothing I would love more than offering every single product idea that pops up here. Going through these what-if scenarios can be very interesting. If I could work 8 days a week to make it happen I would.
