I thought it would make sense to put all of the information on these 15's in one place. How did you come across these? I was at Eminence picking up the new neodymium magnet coaxials and one of the guys there asked if I was interested in some custom subwoofers they had made up for another company. These are similar to the Lab15 but with some tweaks. I know one of the tweaks was a bolted on top plate that was an extra cost. There are also different terminals and I'm guessing possibly a different spider due to the extra X-max and slightly different specs than the Lab15. I don't think they weren't supposed to get the shiny finish that Eminence puts on the Lab15 cone and by the time it was realized, some had already been made. I sent the specs to one of he speaker designers and he said these worked really well in sealed, ported, and horn designs, for subs or midbass modules. So I told Eminence the DIY guys would love these and bought them. Why are these called Buy Outs? I don't have a huge quantity of these so it's a one time deal to get something like this for this cheap. As usual with any custom stuff, I will keep 5 or so on a shelf for 5+ yrs just in case anyone needs a replacement in the future. After 7 years of doing this, that's never been needed, but I will keep them here anyway. Will you hold some of these for me? I will set up a 'preorder' option and you can pay a smaller amount to hold some of these for you up to 1.5 months. There will be 2-3 raffles for free items going to people that buy these woofers. You can only be included in the raffle after you've paid in full. It wouldn't be fair if someone preordered, won the raffle, then cancelled their order. How did you come up with the price? A small amount was added to the cost of the woofer. I then added in $2.15 for an extra packaging box and $4.50 for Paypal fees. Due to each weighing about 28lbs I'm assuming the average shipping price will be around $20 which has been added in to cover "free shipping". That took the total to $151.27, so I just made them $150 with free shipping.
