Or you could just ask who in the forum has drivers spare who also needs the cash.
Most of us have collected way more drivers than we will ever be able to use.
It depends on how "High-End " you want to start with.
Jaycar still have a few drivers in stores, one or two are still worth looking at.

I looked into sourcing some Monacor drivers from Soundlabsgroup when I decided to build something from Tony Gee's site.

I found that it was significantly (~25%) cheaper to purchase in Germany and pay shipping to Australia than it was to buy from Soundlabs. It wasnt a small parcel either, weighing in at around 10kg.

I guess its true that us Australians get ripped off - we shouldnt neglect the option to buy OS and ship.

Thanks for the other links though - I will definitely investigate when planning my next project (a subwoofer).

Re: Most of us have collected way more drivers than we will ever be able to use.” LOL– yeah, but, you know one day, I could use them for a (insert latest fad of choice) system ….
I threw out about 50% of the drivers I had a few months ago, and still have way too many… I swear they’re replicating while I’m not looking…. Or is it just that my shed is shrinking????

Not in Oz but Madisound has some good deals even with shipping. Plus the high A$ helps at the moment.

Madisound Speaker Components: distributor of loudspeaker drivers and parts for speaker builders.

You need to be specific in what you are after as there are members here that may be able to help.
