For Audax drivers, the audax US site ( is not up to date, there is a new line of high end speaker. You can find some info on the french site but only in french.

I have build some speakers with audax drivers, mid end drivers are quite easy to use because they are quite linear. High end are probably harder to use due to some out of band bumps.

Focal drivers are easy to find in europe and their site has some info:

The next driver I will use is a monacor SPH165KEP, monacor is not known as a high end brand, but this driver has very wide and linear FR, even out of band.

For tweaking there is a cheap brand for mike: , their ECM8000 measurement mike is about 100euros (it is not a perfect calibrated one), and their eurorack mixing console is about the same price, coupled with a terratec EWX 24/96 sound card (200) it will give you a decent measuring equipment. The problem is to find all these things in us.

Default Drivers is the easy part

I think that any of the brands that will be mentioned here *can* be good choices. But the design work is not over. The choices you make on the box, build quality, and the crossover will be the difference. I know the parts for the crossover in my speakers cost more than the drivers. That is what really makes the difference between a 1000 dollar speaker and a 10,000 speaker. I take nothing away from those selling their speakers. They probably have invested thousands of dollars and thousands of hours in tweeking the hell out of those "off the shelf" drivers.

If you are willing to experiment and toss out several bad trys, roll your own. If not, I would suggest that you buy the whole kit. You are not just getting the drivers, but the payoff of a lot of work in the overall design.
