Thanks Andy, as I thought. (Sorry to hijack this thread; last time I promise!)

Yes, I contacted the guy here in WA and he isn't the distributor as someone suggested. But when I asked for names, he clammed up...no more replies were forthcoming.

Many Aussie retailers really are poor. Service? You've got to be kidding. And then they want the Government to help out 'small business'. How about helping themselves out? Some you practically have to beg to take your money, such is the effort you go to in finding out information.

As an aside, Madisound quoted me for freight within 12 hrs and of course they have prices on their website (now there's a novel idea for the Aussies to take up). And it works out cheaper, as you say.

Cheers

Stu

You will probably find they end up cheaper that way even after freight !!! If you can ever contact Aranmar.

There was a rumour a few months ago of someone else taking over the Seas distribution (over your side of the island iirc), but I have heard nothing since.

WES are generally very good. I can order at 4 in the arvo, and it nearly always arrives mid morning next working day. I one time it took more than 2 days, I actually got an email apology, truck had failed to proceed.

Aranmar.. I gave up on.

Madisound deliveries usually take 3-6 days to reach me. not bad considering the distance

for passive components "Speakerbug" is reasonably quick too, except I pay by money order which takes a day or so extra.

The official distributor for SEAS in oz is someone in Malaysia.
I heard that the last mob here didn't do such a good job....

whoops, the secret is out !!!!

I might add that importing from Madisound is quick, easy and painless, and if you grab stuff off their "sales" page, no-one in Oz is gunna undercut what you will pay.

Yes, I use WES quite a bit. One thing they excel at is stocking reasonably rare IC's and transistors. I needed an FM demodulator IC for a 70's tuner last week - they had loads in stock. Same with transistors.

Looks like Madisound is the go.

Cheers

so, I bought all parts I need for the building of speakers

380 for drivers, components for crossover, damping material, and miscellaneous parts (screw, foam, cable...). This price contains shipping cost.

45 for wood and glue.

425 for all, not include the finition. It's about 625 US$.

I think that's relatively cheap according to the quality of speakers and crossover part (mundorf MKP & H140)

Next week I'll start to build the cabinet (22mm MDF). I'll use glue and dowel pins.

I'll always be interested if anybody could give to me the feeling about the sound of the speaker, and compare with commercial loudspeakers.

Last question, If I put the crossover under the damping material, Is there a risk of ignition ? Is the filter is hot during listening ?

thanks

Nope. The xover components will hardly get warm unless you dump several hundred watts.
