Default 2-2.5 inch full range driver distributors

Hello, i am trying to start building lots of different speaker designs and seem to be seriously lacking a good full range driver distributor or place to buy, anyone got any ideas?
And also, what are the key points i would want to search in order to find a fullrange with a good sound quality and bright high frequencies?

What do you want it for? I've got just one, as they didn't have any more in stock at the time and they measure superbly. As drivers go you aren't going to find any better. Or you pay less and get something rubbish.

If you're going for a line array I can understand mind you

These speakers are really nice... but they really are expensive as hell even after searching on other websites...
Anything you can recommend on europe-audio.com?

I don't really understand how less than thirty euros, including tax, for probably the best 2.5" full ranger driver out there is particularly expensive.

I'd just save a bit of money and buy those. I mean nothing else that I've seen measured comes close to the SB drivers in that size range, for distortion, a FR free from resonances and the combined cone area + xmax for the basket size.

I mean if you wanted you could get the FR58EX from Europe audio, it's less expensive, but it's a complete gamble as I've never seen one measured. All I'm basing this on is the fact that the FR88EX has very good measured performance. The Vifa NE full rangers should be very good, but they are expensive and not going to beat the SB imo. And the Peerless 830983 type drivers, Zaph has measured one from that series and it was quite terrible.

I know in audio you get what you pay for, but try to imagine the point were i'm at, creating portable speakers to sell for a profit, even a small one, and with 30+30 dollars of tweeters plus another 30+ dollars for shipping, cuts dramatically the rest of my budget... :/

In your experience, what makes a tweeter like the ones you've mentioned good? what should i look for when choosing one?

Yes a full range, my mistake.

Try the Peerless/Vifa TC7FD00-04, very smooth nice sounding 2.5 inch driver. Limited power and spl but usable within it's limits!
