Question Speaker components "Inbound into customs" for almost 4 weeks

Hi, just wanted to see if anyone here has had this problem before with speaker components (tweeters and crossovers). I bought the parts from Sweden and since March 13 the status of the package, which is shipped by post, has been "Inbound into customs". A general google search gives me a clue about what is going on, but most hits deal with importing stuff from China (that is probably designer brand knock-offs) or steroids. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I've never had one stuck in US Customs that long, but an inquiry by the sender usually gets it unstuck (as a sender i've had to do that a couple times)

Two 15" woofers ordered from US, shipped to Canada.

I received one of the woofers approximately 3 weeks after ordering. It took a further 22 days for the other one to be delivered. The item numbers showed them to be 150,000 items apart in Canada customs and because they were so far apart, I had to pay full duty twice. Eventually I was reimbursed when they realized it was a single two box order.

To where was the inquiry sent? USPS or Customs? And how did you do the inquiry. phone, email, mail?

Thanks for the help.
