I don't want to make light of this but building speakers really can be addictive

      I never, ever buy anything for speaker building just because it's on sale and I might use it some day, and I almost always never build more than one pair of speakers a year, yet I have 5 pairs of speakers gathering dust, so to speak, with 3 other pairs used every day and another pair used when I'm in the workshop.

      Try to have only a few speaker/amp projects going at a time if you can.... And try to stay away from buying too much stuff for "future" projects. You may use all that stuff eventually, but it may sit for awhile... then again, you may never get to it.

      None of this advice applies to crossover bits however, you can never have too much of that stuff.... Tools and clamps either!

          Alan, Yeah- Dan is right! I host the annual get together for those with just this issue. I also buy most of my drivers on sale, second-hand for NLA gems, or at a discount. Free is always good too!

          I also agree that you can't have too many xover parts- on hand!

          My wife has maybe 15 pairs of shoes I'm guessing, BUT- she has a lot more in flip-flops alone.

            I have a cardboard box full of crossover parts and such. I have no idea what it is worth, how much it cost me, but probably upwards of $1000.

              I've stopped counting shoes a few years back. I'm pretty sure she has no idea how many drivers I have on the shelf - not even sure I know right now.

              But, yes - never enough crossover parts!!

                      I've seen in more than a few forums, "Welcome to <blank>. And sorry for your pocketbook."
