Keep them. You will not find a better fit between the speaker and a shipping container the manufacturer gives you. Somebody out there, some day will buy those speakers IF you have the original cartons. Cramped for space? Do what I did: stain the wood crates to highlight the labeling and match you decor...put them somewhere as an end table, book shelf, plant shelf, yada yada. Call Martha for more ideas.
i'll fourth keeping them. i had to ship a pair of speakers and only had one original box. the manufacturer wanted WAY too much for a replacement box. i end up having to build one out of wadrobe boxes from u-haul and styrofoam sheets. i probably spent a good $40-$50 just in supplies and spent about an hour and half packing that single speaker. the other speaker packed away quickly and tightly in it's original shipping box.
I'll fifth keeping them - not that I'll ever sell my VR-7s, BUT you never know. The crates were quite large and we had to take them apart just to get the speakers out, so we kept the crates in pieces, trying to clearly number sides for later potential reassembly. I can't speak to the 4s, but the 7s they build the crate AROUND.
Its just good sense to keep the crates - I recently sold Legacy Whispers and I had kept the crates, which made it very easy to pack and ship them to the new buyer, who greatly appreciated that the Speakers arrived intact with no problems.
So far, that's 5 "for" and none "against". I think you have your answer.......
