Default Chinese Audio Nirvana drivers

Yes, here they are.

pair( 2pcs) HiEND 12inch full range fullrange speaker driver defy lowther&fostex | eBay

Being a recent owner of the Audio Nirvana super 15 I am very familiar with the detailed appearance of the AN 15 driver.

These chinese drivers are extremely similar so I expect made at the same factory. Same boxes and packaging, same cone shape, whizzer and phase plug, same cast frame, same metal ring holding cone surround onto frame, same concertina surround (same shiny surface finish to it), same magnet and same frequency response plot, same datasheet format (font etc.)

The ebay seller notes they are away on holiday and are back on 6th October.
Commonsense, the AN15 supplier website has a note saying they are away on holiday until 5th October.

Differences I can see between drivers:

a) cones are white
b) mounting screw holes have a different rebate for screw head
c) driver flange has no flat edges, it's all round. You may prefer this.
d) electrical connection is 'quickfit' instead of screw terminals.

Buyer beware.

I'd suggest you buy from Audio Nirvana, you'll get good support. The price of the AN 12 super and the ebay driver are identical. Shipping costs aren't going to be cheap since these drivers are relatively large.

the shipping box is too thin, although they have foam inside i think its prone to shipping damages.
