I have a couple of sets of DIY speakers that I need to liquidate in my scaling down of my family footprint.

First up is a set of ART arrays. These were designed by FredT over on AudioRoundTable. He built the cabinets and I stuffed and finished them. They are approximately 16ohm/95dB according to Fred and I've played them with everything from 100W SS amps to my 3/4W Darling. They sound quite nice for what they are, but they are just too large for our future plans otherwise I would keep them as my main speakers. I have built the crossovers so you can switch between 1st and 2nd order. Here is a link to some more info about them.

I'm asking $550 for the pair, local pickup (Amarillo). The cost of building these was quite a bit over Fred's estimate in the literature on ART, FWIW, and I have around $600 in them. Shipping is not an option as these are tall. I am willing to drive 3 hours in any direction from Amarillo to deliver for the asking price. Anything less and you'll have to pick them up.

My other set are an unfinished pair of Pi Two Towers. My original plan was to either veneer the whole thing or paint black with 1" oak trim panels up the front edges, thus the doubled up front baffle. They are rough finished and will need to be completely done (edges aren't precisely flush, etc...)Also, the gasket around the woofers is missing the outer thin layer. The heads on first set of screws I put were a smidge too big and when I removed them it loosed up the paper thin outer layer so I just peeled it off. I played them like they are for the better part of a year before I built the arrays and just never got around to it. They sound great and with the pro drivers can go incredibly loud. Lots of info over at AudioRoundTable if you do a search.

I'm asking $250 for these, which isn't much over the cost of the drivers alone. I've easily got over $300 in them. Again, because of size these will be local pickup or the 3 hour drive option for the full asking price.
