How do I ship speakers? Just screw them to plywood?

One way to do it is to buy some high density foam and then cut out a cavity with a hot-knife so the back of the speaker fits into it snugly. You can make a hot-knife with a piece or coathanger wire that you heat up on a gas stove. Then over the top place a piece of cardboard and another piece of foam to fill up the box. Done that way it could survive being tossed from a moving truck.
Alternatively just wrap it up in plenty of bubble wrap and more rolled up to fill in the gaps so it can't move inside the box.

Edit: Don't cut foam rubber with a hot-knife without adequate ventilation.

screw to plywood would be a nice way to send it. but it costs a plywood haha. most speaker makers (celestion eminence weber etc) just have a speaker mold made from cardboard that fits a speaker and fixes it snug (like screwing it into plywood). i thought it was cool and if they sold 20 packs for $20, i think ppl would find it convenient.

I think so far the bubble wrap idea is going to work best. A foam container would rock as well, but that sounds like a hell of a lot of work.
