Default Where do you buy your diy-stuff?

I was just wondering where you guys buy your diy components.
Where can I get the best bargain?
Right now I'm going to build a small monitor and I need it all; drivers, xo, cabinets(?) and so on.
Any help?

Default Norway?

I was going to post a similar reply, then I noticed that sheggdal's from Norway.

I'm just dreaming, but- can you get SEAS stuff any cheaper there?

I get most of my parts from partsexpress.

I wish!
No, you can't get Seas drivers cheap in Norway. They are probably more expensive i Norway than in other countries.
An example: Seas E0017 W18EX-001 cost about 225$ in Norway.

Anyone tried the Foundtek JP2.0 ribbon?
What about using this with a Seas excel 5"?

Just imagine what this hobby was like just 10 years ago....before the (widespread) internet!!!!

Although I brought a PartsExpress catalog to work once, and a guy I work with said he used to order stuff from them back when he was in college...probably late 80's or so....he was pretty static to see that they were still around.

Zalytron has the best prices on SEAS Millenium drivers in my experience.

Default parts

I get a lot of stuff from Meniscus Audio. www.meniscusaudio.com

They will match just about any price, they have many excellent lines, great wire, etc and they will talk to you and give you advice which is more than i can say for some of the other diy parts vendors.
