Gutting them to store DVDs? Well, maybe not. http://unclutterer.com/2008/07/03/make-those-giant-speakers-into-storage/

"All speakers have enormous magnets stuck to the back of them that would absolutely wreak havoc on any DVDs, cds, or video games that you put in your cabinet, so those have gotta go"

Somebody copied my idea! That's what I do with all the 250Ti's and B460's I find in yard and estate sales. You should see how many books they hold!!! The only problem is I have to haul all those giant woofers to the scrap metal recycle section of the landfill which is a pain.

I find it improves the sound on my 250s, better than fiberglass stuffing. I actually like the idea however my living room has a large 7.2 system aleady dominating the room, where would I put an add''l speaker?

I do like the idea for storage, in another room maybe, something some 901 would be good for except I would be too embarrased to even have the cabinets in my house :barf:

I actually did this years ago. I took the front baffle off and cannibalized the other speaker so that I could put a couple of matching shelves inside and I used the speaker as a bookcase. I used it for years... finally tossed it (them), about three years ago.

The speaker started out life as a DIY L300, then was a dual 12" sub, then a bookcase, then landfill... veneered particle board wasn't very good firewood or I suppose it might have had another end. :D
