  • Ebay (Vifa) Drivers?

    Posted by operandi on March 13, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Anyone have experience with sourcing drivers from eBay sellers? Specifically I was looking at the XT25SC90-04 tweeter. PE is not expecting to get any in stock till August and eBay turned up as source when I searched. The specs are slightly different than PE’s specs sheet, the wave guide is cosmetically different and seller is located in China so I’m guessing these are grey market drivers intended for a big OEM?

    My intent was to build a published design, the Aria (RS150-4 and XT25SC90-04) and was wondering if these would be ok to use?

    I haven’t. BUt I know others that had to buy some of the parts for the cinema 6 and 10 off there and had great success. I wouldn’t be too concerned if it is a reputable seller.

    Thanks, good to know people have had luck going that route. I searched Madisound again though and it looks like they have them in stock for a reasonable price so thats probably what I will go with.

    If I had the ability to do measurements I’d consider get the ones from the eBay seller too and seeing how they perform. I have to admit I like the look of the wave guide on them more, lol.
