Default Zaph audio Bargain mini, need some help !

Hello all. I am more a reader than a writer, that's why this is my first post.
Today I need some help.
I have a little problem with the Bargain mini from Zaph audio website.
I was planning to build two of them, so I decided to start ordering the (inexpensive) parts. I ordered from madisound without problem (for the tweeter and the crossover), then I went to the MCM website to buy the 55-1853 speakers and this is where my problem is. MCM doesn't ship to France (Where I live).
So , I am asking for generosity to help me having those speakers.
There are 2 possible ways.
Someone who would already have the speakers at home and have no use of them, could sell them to me.
Or someone could be super kind and order them to his home and then send them to me.
I will pay for everything of course.
OR, maybe, is there, out there, another speaker who share the same specs than the 55-1853, that would be available somewhere else than MCM and shippable to france.
Tell me.
Thanks anyway.

This wouln't be the same price. That would be almost 80$ versus 26$.
And I have all the other pieces, and even cut the wood.
The best would be to find a substitute in an european store.

To find a substitute with the same performance, it is difficult.

I don't know, the courbes don't seem to be as flat as with the MCM.
Fot the moment I am trying to be hyper insistant (?) with the sales/order/support-girl from MCM website. We'll see later if it works.

Unfortunately I can't help you, but had you asked a few weeks ago, I could have, as I brought some MCM parts to Germany from USA. Bad timing unfortunately, but good luck finding them!

Did a quick check and this is going to cost about $90-100 USD (including PayPal fees) to order the drivers from MCM and ship them to France via US Postal Service.

I have already ordered heavier and bigger stuff for less expensive.
90$-100$ is more or less the price to ship a guitar.
But maybe am I wrong.

I have some basics in electronics but when there is "wood" involved or "resonance" and "frequency response" I am kind of scared.
I would really like to find a replacement speaker but as I already have the crossover and the wood cutted, my scared mind says : "the only speaker you can get is the MCM because the size shape and all the other scary stuff has been designed for him".
So if someone can tell me that this or this speaker will act the same in the bargain mini box, that would make me feel better.
