Default Small Speakers 4'

What would be a good source for about 20ea. 3" or 4" single cone speakers I would like to use in a project? Fair to good quality wattage not too important.

Thanks in advance for your input.....

Hi,

Parts Express and Madisound are both top notch businesses to deal with.

Cheers!

mcm has some good cheap speakers. This 5" is quite good for the price and has great build quality. They may have something similar in smaller sizes. You can also try parts express, the tang band and the hi-vi brands. Or aurasound at madisound.

You all are fabulous, I found just what I was looking for at the right price.....

Could somebody recommend a place to purchase a Soldering Station, I would like a Weller but they have soared in price... I just need something inexpensive.

Again Thanks for the quick and Great choices....

I say splurge a bit and get a better station type solder station like the Hakko 936ESD which HMC has for $80. Comparable to it would be the Weller WES51 which Amazon has for $83 shipped. I personally use the digital Weller WESD51 and I've never regretted spending the extra money, though I'm not what you would say very active in the hobby.

I just bid on ebay for a weller for about 5 bucks, newbie lister I am taking a little chance but what the heck I might get lucky and win. I feel so at ease here on this forum. I joined a while back, but just now getting to a point where I can make some progress on my project, slow and easy is my way. I have been soldering something one way or another for over 50 years. No i did not use nails and a brunson burner to start with.
