Lii 15 baffle product change
03/12/21 at 06:07:34
 


Sadly, a couple of pairs of the Lii 15 baffles were recently damaged during UPS shipping, despite the very robust packaging materials I use to ship them .....

It seems that if the shipping carton is dropped or handled roughly, the hardwood baffle can split or crack.
I believe that this is happening because of the size and weight of the driver in relation to the size and thickness of the baffle.

Because of this, I am now offering two options -

1 – Provide the current baffles without the drivers and allow the customer to order the drivers directly from Lii Audio.

Installing the drivers in the baffles only takes a few minutes.
The screw holes will be pre-drilled and screws supplied.

2 – Make the baffles thicker than the current 7/8” thickness, which will increase the price of the speakers.

For option 1, the price will be 400.00 less than the prices listed on the pricing sheet (plus shipping and packaging).

Price List

For option 2, it will add 200.00 to the prices listed on the pricing sheet (plus shipping and packaging).

The baffles will be 1 ½” thick and include the F-15 drivers.

If you have any questions about these options, please email me -

Best wishes,
Randy

*** Update to the Lii 15 baffle options ***

Over the past two weeks, I have been testing various shipping options for the Lii 15 baffles .....

Shipping the original 7/8" thick baffles (without drivers) is no problem.

However, the thicker baffles with drivers tip the scale at 60+ pounds in a single shipping carton,  This makes the package both heavy and unwieldy and prone to being dropped by the shipping company.

Shipping the pair of thicker baffles in two cartons involves a lot of time and materials to package them and doubles the cost of shipping.

So ..... I have decided to only offer the Lii 15 baffles without drivers.
They can be shipped in a single carton and the drivers can be ordered directly from Lii Audio.

I am offering the baffles in three (3) versions ..... all without drivers -

1 - The original 7/8" thick baffles

2 - 1 1/2" thick baffles with front driver mounting

3 - The "Plus" version (1 1/2" thick) configured for rear driver mounting and a "roundover" on the front for the driver opening



Additional information can be found here.

Several customers have already placed orders for the various versions of the baffles and I think that this is the best (and safest) solution to the shipping damage disaster .....

There have been no shipping damage problems with any of the 8" driver versions of the speakers.

Specific questions can be asked via email and will receive a prompt reply.

Thanks for the update Randy. Those 1.5" thick Lii 15 baffles look great, especially the "Plus" version with rounded edges. I'm looking forward to receiving my Curly Cherry pair next month. Bet they'll look awesome 😎.
