    The cost of the drivers for the left and right channel today would be
    RAAL ribbons ~$1,400
    Midranges ~$750
    Woofers ~$700

    I only have the boxes for the ribbons. Not sure how to ship the other drivers if there was interest.

    Somewhat comical; tells you a lot about people.
    But on the other hand, a DIY speaker has to be made very well to be worth just the retail cost of the drivers new.

    Yes, I could build my own, but it can take a long time.
    It's actually much faster for me to drive to Minnesota.
    I need protective grills, so I have to make my own.
    Actually most if not all speakers need protective grills, in my humble opinion.
    I guess you can build an amp with no cover also.

    I am ready to scrap the enclosures if anyone is interested in the drivers. Please PM me if there is interest.

    The bass cabinet is 24.3" (617mm) tall x 12.87" (327mm) wide x 16.1" (409mm) deep
    The midrange and tweeter cabinet is 15" (380mm) tall x 12.87" (327mm) wide x 16.1" (409mm) deep
    The center channel is 12.5" (320mm) tall x 24.5" (650mm) wide x 10" (254mm) deep

    I have attached drawings of the cabinets. The center channel was made rectangular to simplify the build.

    I used a Pass Labs XA30.5 for a while which I enjoyed quite a bit. I then used DIY monoblocks from hdamp.com, the T300. These amplifiers did just fine but I never did get to turn the listening room into what I always wanted it to be.

    What are the dimensions of the speakers? What do you recommend they be powered by?

    You might have better luck selling the drivers separately.
    I thought about selling the drivers separately. I only have the boxes for the ribbons. I was hoping someone would want the drivers and cabinets while they decided to build their own speakers.

    I am in no rush in this venture. I still haven't hung my tv or have furniture to sit on.
