most shipping stores (eg, MailBoxes Etc) will make custom boxes for a modest fee.

I would look in the yellow pages for a local supplier under the heading packaging materials. I would also call the local moving company that has service to wherever you're shipping & see if they can provide you with boxes & a discount if they're going that way. Compare rates/service & go from there. Good luck.
-- Ok, time for the resident cynic to chime in-- Shipping speakers, using UPS or Fedex etc. in the non-factory boxes is a recipe for shipping damage!! for sure!! Spend the money;have a moving co box them up and move them.-- Or just insist on selling them local--Otherwise,2 people could be very unhappy-- The buyer and the seller. I suppose you need to have had your 1st shipping damage;to appreciate this advice.
The speakers are a pair of Apogee Cepheus 6. I've had significant damage to another pair of speakers in the past, but they weren't well packed by the shipper. They will go cross country with a frieght company (not with UPS). I've seen the original boxes and packing materials. It wouldn't take much effort to greatly improve on those.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
