The 301 isn't my favorite speaker, but i probably have similar parts sitting down in my lab and would be happy to move them. I'll check if you are intereted.

partsexpress.com , get the catalog

Basically a

2" Cone Speaker (Can be a midrange or tweeter driver)
3" Cone Speaker (A midrange type driver)
8" Woofer (Just look for a basic 8" woofer)

It will be a little hard finding drivers that look exactly like the Bose layout because the driver types and sizes are a little unconventional.

they have actual bose drivers for cheap at www.allelectronics.com.

i probably wouldnt advise building the 301's, i actually sell them at work, and for the cost of the drivers, you can build something a bit better IMO.

I like spacious sound from Bose speakers. Dave if you have these original Bose speakers, especialy 8" Bose woofer, i shall buy them. I live in a Europe, so i canīt buy Bose 301 becouse they are too heavy, shipping is expensive, so i have to build them.

I won't have a pr of the original parts -- i did have a single 301 so i've got the parts around for comparison. I'm in North America, so i'd suggest looking around for local stuff 1st, because shipping costs would be most of the value of anything i can send you. Be better to spend that on getting better drivers locally.
