Better Quality... or Better Price... That is the question.

A) I would prefer a higher priced, more complete kit. I will NOT drill, tap, sand or paint myself. example: a $500 kit
16
70%
B) I would prefer a lower priced, less complete kit. I can drill, tap, sand and paint myself. example: a $350 kit
7
30%
C) I would prefer they be delivered 100% complete and working. I don't want to do any work myself. example: a $700 finished product

Speaker Build - Better Quality... or Better Price... *VOTE*

Just like the topic says...
For those participating in the 2015 CarverFest speaker build...

The Poll prices are just rough numbers used as an example. These are NOT actual prices for the kits.

"More complete kit" would refer to, each speaker is pre-finished, painted, pre-drilled & tapped holes. These are all things that YOU would NOT have to do yourself.
"Less complete kit" would refer to, the speakers are not finished or painted, holes are not pre-drilled or tapped. These are all things YOU would have to do yourself at CF

A) would you prefer to be given a "more complete kit" giving you less finish work to do yourself, which will cost you more $$ per kit
B) would you prefer to be given a "less complete kit" giving you more finish work you would need to do yourself, but saving you $$ per kit.

Not sure yet... I'm trying to decide what will be most economical, cost and TIME wise.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Well 2/1... it looks like the "I don't want to do much work" team wins this one.

That's ok really. Less to go wrong come build time. I don't want to get stuck in the cabin for a week being "tech support" like Mark and Harry had to do this last year.
