Default Australian speaker group buy anyone?

I'm about to embark on my first full range speaker project, probably using the Fostex FE87E or something similar.

The limited selection and high prices of full range drivers in Australia means I'll probably end up buying from the US, but to make an order worthwhile, I'm keen to do a group buy and spread the shipping costs.

So... is anybody interested in a purchase from Madisound ?

I'm in Melbourne (eastern suburbs), and I'd be happy for locals to pickup parts when they arrived, or to post them within Australia at standard postage costs.

I am NOT trying to make money on this - shipping costs would be spread amongst buyers according to the proportion of the total shipping weight that their order is.

If you're interested, list the parts you're after, and I'll get a shipping quote from madisound.

Hey mate,
I'm interested in some speakers from Madisound, and also in Melb...
Email me if you like (i think it's enabled, yours isn't...).
Looking at either Silverflute W17RC38 4 or 8 Ohm 6.5" Wool-filled Paper Cone Woofer or something similar.

Cheers,
Danny

I'd be interested in getting a few Hi-Vi speakers, maybe 8 of the B3S units...

I'd be interested in a pair of Hi-Vi B3S but needs to be shipped to Brisbane. I'll be in Melbourne in the next month so could do a local pick up, are you close to South Yarra?

Regards,
Dean

Dean,
I'm in Bayswater, about 40mins drive from S. Yarra.
Postage from Melb to Bris for the two drivers would be $8.40

Cheers

I've requested a quote from Madisound, so I'll get back to you all soon and see if this is worth doing.

When are you planning on doing the buy? I'm somewhat interested (ie- interested but am still trying to decide on what parts to buy for my first speaker)

I was looking at importing VIFA drivers from Parts Express in the US, but by the time you do dollar conversion, freight & insurrance, GST etc...
