Default Looking for alternate PE source for inductor

I am building the Dayton 3 speakers and Parts Express is out of one of the inductors. 60mH 14 GA. PERFECT LAYER INDUCTOR. Does anyone know of another source where I could order this?

Thanks, Steve

I think you may mean 0.60 mH, but in any case; Solen.

You're right, lost the decimal on the copy.

Thanks for the link.

It looks like the closest they have is .62. Any idea if this difference would affect the sound quality or not?

Hi
Solen is stocked by http://madisound.com/perfectlay.html. The value of 0.62 mH should be well within the tolerences of the other parts used, so not a problem. May even be better using a inductor a tad higher unless 1-2% caps are used in conjuction.

BTW Parts Express has a 15 AWG 0.6 mH part with it's 2x higher DCR. It may work OK or even better depending on the application . Have to see the speaker system design to know this tho.

Hi reviewed the design in the link above, and it appears the 14 AWG inductor is required for this design. The Solen part should be fine.
