I'm here now! 😉

Got into speaker building in the past year but I have made very quick progress.

You can see my introduction page if you'd like!

Hi Elliot,

I will read your intro.

I got into the hobby about 2 years ago, but due to financial reasons its always been theretical.

I am just starting a 2 way bookshelf speaker as a tester.

Where do you get drivers from? They are so lucky in the states with parts express!

I've tried soundimports.eu in the Netherelands previously, but they are a lot more expensive than parts express.

I assume they get them from parts express and just pay the import duties/tax, and then pass that tax onto us!

Yeah I got my amplifier components from Ali Express but the only way I have found that I an going to order the drivers is either through importing through parts Express or the website you mentioned. Unfortunately they seem to be the only option for most drivers for us in the UK. I have designed a 2way bookshelf also. It is sealed with a very flat 2nd order crossover. There are more details over on my post. I am going to post screenshots of build plans soon.
