I could make these out of aluminum for so cheap and out of wood even cheaper. Why do people pay such a grip for these???

I am not doubting your adapters are quality or better than the plastic ones, I still think 50 is excessive.

Demand and competition drive prices. Right now, for e36 6x9 adapters, there is no competition and apparently a healthy demand . . .
Remember how much the first DVD players cost . . . ? Dude was first to hit the market w/ the product, so he has it by the testicles - so he charges whatever the market will bear. Can't fault him for that, right?

I am not dissing your creation either. I would not start making these to low ball you either. I don't do business like this. I think it is funny that people would pay that much. I hope you sell a ton of sets. No one is trying to cap on your biz. Good luck with it.

so you have pictures of the 6x9, but no 8's? Are you planning to do this, or actually have it?

I've recently made my own 6x9 adapter plates out of 3/4" MDF. I'm using some Pioneer 3-way 6x9's that i purchased used for only $10 (the midrange drivers were damaged), and removed the midrange/tweeter pedestals so that i could use the woofers as small subs (with passive crossovers). I've got them wired up to the factory amplifier and they're putting out some really decent bass compared to the factory rear speakers. Those plates could easily be used for 8" woofers too (driven by a separate amp). Here's the write-up with pics on my web site...

No sales pitch or anything... just an informational write-up.
