Ok, so how bad exactly is your driver hoarding?

    I probably have you all beat!

    I had the government come over to my house claiming that there was a magnetic anomaly at my exact street address. Also noticed cars on the street veering off course towards my house when passing it.

        I always like looking back at this every once-in-a-while, not sure why (from '16).

        saabracer traded a new $4oo handgun for about 500 drivers and ALSO some VERY high-end TTs & amps.
        Focal - nearly 80, AuraSound -60 (one case of NS6s & another of 2-1/2" FRs, +others), Vifa 50,
        Celestion 50, AUDAX 40 (if these alone were bought new at ms they'd run probably over $5k),
        Roughly 20 ea. of Cabasse, Eton, Dynaudio, HiVi, and Scan Speak. Approx. 15 ea. of Eminence and MCM.
        About 10 ea. of Fostex, Seas, AR, Peerless, and Davis (carbon woofers needing new surrounds - I'd probably toss 'em IMO)
        About 5 ea. of JBL, Fender, Selenium, Tang Band, Aurum Cantus, B&C, and USHER.
        A "few" Dayton, LCY, Hiquiphon, PHL, Pioneer, Visiton; a 15" Mach One woofer, and a Neo 8.

          I only have 102. 32 of them are the case of NS6-255-8A I bought when they were cheap.

            I know craigk and saabracer have more than me. Last I did 'inventory' I was over 100, but not into 200 range or even downhill towards it.

                  Wow- Bass much? JBL dual gaps, TC Eclipse, former JBL 1500, some Morel Ultimates, and a ton of Vega Strokers! That's some collection there!

                    Is that a CF driveshaft? (Kinda pricey for a port tube?)

                          I collect drivers - of many types across many price points. My favorite part of the collection is the Realistic/Radio Shack drivers I have. A collection is different from a "going to build this someday" mindset. I used to have visions of the sheer numbers of speakers I would be building someday - but now I realize you don't have to read every comic book to own an entire series. I have a cool driver collection, especially a lot of old and even rare Realistic/Radio Shack stuff. Sometimes I see a pair of speaks at a yard sale that something I own would fit into and a project is born - but I am under no delusions these days that I am going to crank out 100+ designs any time soon...
                          Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

                            I like that concept. So 100 plus is over 200?...inquiring minds you know...

                              Yeah, probably inching up on 300 now.

                                I see your point.
                                I used to have an attractive subwoofer as a candy dish on my coffee table when I was younger and single just because I thought it was a beautiful thing that I wanted to see on a regular basis.
                                I do think I probably have too many drivers, but it's also nice to have a few around at-the-ready for a project when you get the itch... which for many of us is pretty much all the time.

                                I suspect that having a bunch of drivers around kind of inspires me in some weird way also.
