I don't understand how and why Fedex splits up shipments like that. I bought a pair of speakers from a guy in Arizona, one made it to Massachusetts in 3 days and took a pretty direct route though the midwest, the other took 8 days and traveled the whole southern part of the US. They were Ryan R630s so the boxes were pretty big but it still baffles me.

They don't do it on purpose. ALL the shipping companies work the same way. If your 2nd speaker didn't fit into whatever vehicle they were loading then it waits till the next one is available. Do you actually think the handlers at FEDEX/UPS/USPS pay attention to every box and see if there are siblings? Never gonna happen.

This would explain why I got one speaker on Saturday and the other arriving today (though it was supposed to have arrived yesterday).

Interestingly, the right speaker went from Williams, AZ all the way up to Sacramento, only to have to come back down to Hayward the same evening. FEDEX Tracking shows its out for delivery today.
