  • What do you do with your old designs? Sell them, let them sit, re-use?

    I personally try and sell them, so I can have more cash to try more driver styles. I have had some good success and sometimes now. Sometimes I take a loss, and other times I at least break even. Minu labor. What about the rest of you?

        I often re-make them into a different system, mostly the boxes.

          I have given away a few pair. Never sold any. Mostly I unsolder and save the crossover parts for future projects and repurpose the boxes. The drivers end up sitting on the shelf collecting dust. The project I am bringing to Indy in 2 weeks consists of 13 L boxes I have used twice before. I just machine new removable baffles for them.

            Yes, yes, and yes. I've sold a few (the big Victors build is the most recent), repurposed many, and have given away more than I can remember. Every grandkid in the family receives a bookshelf 2way when they graduate.

              I've sold 7 or 8 pairs over the last 15 years or so and I've given away 2 pairs to my older daughter and her hubby, plus one pair to one of their two sons (my younger grandson). My younger daughter isn't interested in speakers, however.

                I give all my speakers to my nieces. They love music and really like my work. Made a set for Sis-N-Law and she is very pleased!

                  I think I've only sold one pair that wasn't commissioned. Someone had a need for the exact pair that I had just finished up, so it kind of made sense.
                  Mostly I give them to people I love, it makes me happy. Pretty sappy, right?

                    I've been donating to a medical mission auction hosted by the local audio group. I got a tax write off, got to meet great people, and some guys got some decent speakers for cheap. I've got a few I'd like to recoup a few bucks. I'll probable craigs list them this spring and summer. Yes they are all 15 inchers going on the block

                          Either reuse, or give away, in approx. equal proportions.

                            In years past, I sold off a few pairs.
