Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

I just got into DIY speaker building a little over a month ago and have already spent over $3700. This I know cause I just wrote a check to pay for over $5200 worth of PE orders, and I haven't even opened my Home Depot bill yet, waiting till I have a few beers before I open that one. Keep in mind that doesn't include my reciever, amps, pre-amps or power filters.

Now I am 26 and not yet married but atleast your wife will see that your needs are well within reason. Plus the two of you will save money by staying home and watching movies with a nice sound system rather than going out.

And, unlike alot of the items women buy, your speakers will be used everyday for hours and last for years at which point you can sell them and recover some of the cost. Try that with $200 pair of designer jeans.

Front Subs: 2, 15" sealed; $650 (DIY)
Rear Sub: 1, SVS PB12-Plus/2; $640 (Craig's list)

2-CHANNEL SYSTEM
Front L/R: 2, Magnapan MG12/QR; $800 (Audiogon)
Alt Front L/R; 2, Floorstanding Advents; $500? (NEW)
