I just bought a different pair of these, and my understanding is that most of Justin’s items sell for far less than asking. I didn’t buy my speakers new, but based on what I can gather, these probably were sold in the $4k-$5k range to the original owners. That’s just my best guess, though. 

 

Edit: Looks like the pair of speakers I bought were a demo pair (hence the price drop to the original owner). Justin gives a little insight into the amount of demo pairs he sells below.

These also look like unfinished cabinets (no veneer).

They look interesting, but give very little detail on drivers and crossovers.

Maybe,  @justinsweber can give us some more details on these.

Ampsandsound make great sounding gear, I like my little ben.

The speakers in the ad are not the same as the Hudson. Different cabinetry, driver compliment/crossover and finishing. They are amazing sound in their own right but not the same. 

Re speakers, ampsandsound generally only builds on spec at this point. Most customers like being able to chose exactly what they want. 

I however, love building speakers... as I have done for many years, I still build about 2-3 pairs a year.... listen and sell off at a reasonable price. Ive taken to changing the ports to differentiate these more clearly now... triangle ports. 

As an side, Ill be listing a pair of my personal speakers later... Finally need to complete a pair of my Royals... JWC Bass bins with Daves horns. Its been sitting in my garage staring at more for far too long. Time to own a pair of the big boys.

Thanks for the information. I have spoken with the original owner of the pair I bought and it looks like he also bought them off of you as a demo pair. Seems like that's the way to go if anyone wants to score some of these in top condition. Might not be a bad idea to reach out to Justin about getting in on his personal speakers he'll be listing later. Take it from me, these are hard to come by on the secondhand market. I've been looking off an on for a few years, and I just found a pair within the last month.

 

Justin, when it comes time for you to list those speakers, will you put them on your site or list them somewhere else? I know someone who may be interested depending on how he likes my Hudson-style speakers.

What’s your website? Where can I read more about your builds?

I try to separate what I do personally vs company. At my core, I love Klipsch products and audio in general. This way people cant say Im Hawking my stuff on Klipschs footprint.

Is that the Mini Punch?  I wish Dave would have continued that kit as I would have loved to have heard them.

Yes I have 4 built but never assembled cabs. 

I will patiently wait for a build thread.
