Default Can I use car speaker drivers?

Hello
Can I use car speaker drivers for home or PC speakers?
I could not find high quality drivers in the market at my town but there is no problem for purchasing high quality Car divers.
thank you

Yes you can. I have some lovely old Pioneer drivers mounted in my work room wall. I also have a nice stand alone set of speakers with Pioneer drivers.

Unfortunately not all drivers are made equal, the old Pioneers are good but then they went bad when the started using myler whizzers. There's no way of knowing until you get them. Also remember that some chipamps don't like 4ohm loads.

Yes you can! But don't buy those 2-way or 3-way speakers that resemble vanilla speakers but with tweeters stuck to their membranes! I found 99% of those to be utter junk. Even the expensive ones. The best results I achieved so far were with oldschool full range speakers. For some reason or another, stock speakers from older Opel cars sounded quite good.
