Default Jakarta: where to find speakers and passive components?

I'm in Jakarta for a week and thought I might take a look at the electronics shops/markets, mainly for either speaker bits or general electronics components. Does anyone know where to start?

cheers,
col.

You can start by Glodok Plaza. It's somewhere in the China Town. Several hundreds of shops, but don't expect to find Hi Tech wonders, it's mostly the crappiest stuff that man can made. Anyway, it's something that can be seen from an audio touristic point of view. Beware of the taxi bill, because of scam and permanent traffic jam.

@ col: You can try at Lindeteves Trade Center or Glodok Plaza. Most of them are just regular stuff, but if you are looking for the high end stuff like Telefunken tube, Mullard, Black Gate, Audio Note, Shinkoh, Seiden, Mundorf etc you can go to Wibowo Electronic (Glodok Plaza) or Bella Audio (Lindeteves Trade Center). YOu can also check via website Bella-Audio

thanks for the pointers, will check them out. I'm mainly looking for bang 4 buck items, not much interested in high end stuff.

cheers,
col.

If it's like this, you are in the good place. Before investing, you can take a look to the specs of the local speaker manufacturer ACR,( scroll down the page). Specs are honest, prices ridiculous. Some of their products are exported to US and EU under other brands.

PS :thx tyo, I was'nt aware of these shops, if you know also something for speakers, don't hesitate.

@Ragudazon: I don't know much about speakers place, I just know some of them at Mega Glodok Kemayoran (actually there's place for automotive audio) or maybe you can find out at local webstore at Featured Products | TokoSpeaker, Toko Speaker, Car Audio, Audio Mobil, Speaker, Tweeter, Midrange, Subwoofer, Capacitor, Resistor, Inductor, Audio

Thanks tyo, but I knew the link already, the catalog is beautiful, prices are not crazy if considering the shipping.
Anyway, this gives to think of the comparative value of some industrial products, for the price of a pair of PHY-HP KM30, we could buy an honest second hand Kijiang...glups !

Col if you see anything decent in 21inch subwoofers be sure to bring home enough to share around, Fs anything below 18-21hz, Qts suitable for a closed box or IB

Ther's a 21 inches here, from the same factory, but when I see the supposed FR curve I have some doubts on the product...
Either it's a site mistake, either they measured this with a naked driver, either this sub really sucks.

sinar baja makes SB Acoustic, with the help of norwegian engineers.

i find that Mal Mangga Dua is one of the good places for mid-fi hi-end stuffs.
some have pretty good deal.
For diy stuff, i went to harco before to buy, but honestly not many choices there also.

cheers
henry
