Default JBL 8x8 Waveguide?

I'm looking for a JBL 8x8 PT-D95HF waveguide for an econowave build, but JBL ProParts told me today that they're no longer ~$20 each, they're more like ~$200 each...

I was wondering if anyone knows any other sources that are more reasonable or if any alternatives have come out in the last few years.

Thanks

That sounds like it includes the compresion driver!
I found a JBL supplier in the UK for the 6x6 PT waveguide and they had to import them from the US, ended up costing 21.44 for the pair!

The Pyle clone of the 6"x12" PT waveguide is about as good as it gets. The QSC waveguide might be a tiny bit better.

Ive built 6 pairs of EconoWaves in all different configurations and the best sounding to me where the QSC wave guides.

I'm looking for that one in particular because its the reccomended waveguide for the small advent build as detailed in the long ewave thread on that parts express forum. I went ahead and bought the Pyle though. I guess I'll just see if that'll cut it for now.

Its hard to believe that the price I was quote is correct. Ive seen no evidence to suggest the price has gone up so high, but I asked the guy on the phone if that was the price with the compression driver and he assured me it was just for the waveguide...
