Why NO LOVE For BOENICKE Audio Speakers Here ?


I think they are some of the most realistic sounding speakers on the world market!🎶

Heard them at Capital Audiofest. Nice sounding enough but very small and very expensive for their size. I did not see or hear the value.   If the small size appeals and the price does not  repel, then go for it.
"Boenicke are asking near 7 Grand for these .. for what ... a pair of speakers that I can build for around $100."

Somehow I doubt that ;-)
And of course, your analysis, like all such rash analysis of "I could build that way cheaper" misses the work time a speaker designer spent coming up with the design, testing, refining etc (not to mention the added money involved selling speakers as a business, overhead, advertising etc).
After watching a few videos of the Polands Audio Show there are 100's of manufacturers we don't see here in NA. many that look very interesting. Shame more don't come here.
North America makes up less than 20 percent of the world audio market.  Of that 20 percent, 80 percent are overweight bald guys that wear sneakers.  It’s a miracle anyone comes to demonstrate here.  We got cash tho and the weed is gettin better!

Yes!

I don’t tend to comment on things I either don’t know or haven’t experienced!

I have worked (in some cases extensively) with said drivers used by Beonicke, and I use the Peerless brand in my current set up and have used Peerless in my car audio setup in the past. Fountek full-range aren't all that! As for the SLS 5.25" driver, I have to admit it's a little beast.

However, paying 7 Large, for something the family cat to build for just over $100 is too hard for me to swallow! Praising Beonicke as 'the best thing since sliced bread' and paying near 7 Grand instead of a whisker over $100 for the pleasure forces me to conclude that some people on this and other forums need to get out more often!
