    The price sky rocketed over time too. They were probably 2x the cost when they were discontinued versus when they were first sold.

    I believe the previous supplier was also having QC issues to where the mounting holes weren't lining up, etc.
    Later,

    That would be my guess. Shipping/storage/and budget conscious shoppers with a diy attitude.

    I'm sure they were a headache in shipping and storage too.

    In searching for a supplier they weren't able to find one that could meet their criteria. I've been working with another company to fill the void. We'll announce here if the project moves forward.

    I liked them, too. Perhaps they couldn't make and sell them for a low enough price to get good sales volume. A lot of DIYers making small speakers are very budget conscious. I'll note they still make unfinished subwoofer knock-down cabinets. A lot more sales volume inherently, and people are willing to spend a few bucks on subs.

    I built a few nice designs using the pre-made Dayton cabinets, they were great values- why were they discontinued? Will they ever be brought back?
