    Sounds like you should take it to the post office.

    You say that like you disapprove of them

    Several PC's, ranging from my original 3800x2 to my current Q6700. I'll update this eventually.

    You want to be careful not to damage the woofer. Peanuts and stuffing materials can push on the cone and cause damage. Buy a box close to the size you need. Take a square of cardboard the size of the boxand make a hole it to fit the magnet. This will keep the speaker from moving around to much. Then use cardboard squares on top and bottom of the speaker. These will reinforce the box to prevent damage and the woofer coming out. Then I recommend pricing the package at the USPS, FEDEX and USPS sites before going anywhere.
