Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

That's very kind of you... I am HONORED!

That's very kind of you.

Just to clarify things a little...

(1) I assume that you mean, total cost, $500 per PAIR.

If you meant $500 EACH, please clarify that!

(2) Also, I assume that your cost figure means cost to a US DIY-er for the parts and cabinet--shipping and sales taxes excluded; in that those will vary state to state. And, assembly labor and woodfinishing should be deemed to be free.

I'd also suggest that you (or the competition's sponsor) consider "Open" judging, and the possibility of non-ranked judging.

What I am driving at is that I actually have designed and built a "pea pod" loudspeaker designed to be listened to on a desktop... and most certainly not from eight to 10 feet away.

Whereas, for the same money, someone could get a 6-inch coaxial driver, a crossover, and a .5 cu-ft. box, and stay under $250 per speaker. And that speaker should be able to fill a room as well as any 6.5-inch 2-way can.

I think that both those speakers deserve to be judged only on their own intentions and ambitions...

I dunno if Stereophile would want to get involved as a sponsor; but, when you are thinking about companies, Madisound is great, but don't neglect Parts Express.
