Question Special Limited Edition Poker Run Speaker Grills

OSO Sponsor Billet Audio Covers. com is seeking opinions off this board to see if a special group of people might be interested in custom speaker grills that would resemble a poker hand.

For any party boats that are looking for an edge on the competion at the docks. This design will be limited if we decide to produce any.

Remember OSO members allways get a break!

An most of then cover the tweeter, which is highly directional!????

I like them, but too much $$ for even me, the king of useless toys.

Wow, those are some good looking covers, then I checked out the price sheet.

I could justify that if I had only one speaker. They are pretty cool though.

Like I said, "If you are trying to up the competition!"

I should have some pics of the victory pattern I just did for a 42' fountain Candy red with tweeters. Stay tuned!
Either way thanks for the input. This is the old stay tuned for the new this week.

I couldn't agree more! I really like the way they look, but DAM! That's alot of coin for speaker covers. 150 EACH for 12" covers!!?? Thats' out of control. How much does it take to make these things?? If they were lower prices they'd sell like hot cakes. The ones from Audiobaun are only like 40 bucks each. Whats up with that. Don't get me wrong, nice product....just too much $$.

Ok let me get this right if they were cheaper each of you would start buying. OK I will lower the price on the 12's to say $110 for standard mirror polish only.

Now what i dont get is that we will spend $20 for a similiar billet item that requires less machining and definitely less time on a machine. Our large speaker grills are made out of 100 % cnc that is a large chunk of metal.

Here is what cost $20 bucks all day long.

Now here is what you get 100% cnc with tabs cut out of the metal as one solid piece. Now as for adiobahn they make a great cast metal product it does not come in anything but chrome and they stand out about 1.5 inches and are not appealing to a custom boat.

I know I have had many customers on the lake see ours and switch over.

Kind a like a moped they are cool till someone sees you riding it!

Keep em coming guys this is called product research.

Thanks.
