Default Recommend a UK supplier please.

Hi, I've spent a day on the net looking for a decent 12 or 15" driver to start a subwoofer project with no joy.

Can anyone recommend a UK supplier (with a decent website) of speaker components, I'm looking to spend around 100 on a driver and the same on an amp/crossover to drive it. I can build the cabinet myself but i'm not into electronics.

Thanks in advance.

Marsh.

BK Electronics is just about your only bet.

edit: Ivan also has one kit that just about fits your price range.

For UK made sub-woofer drive units you can't beat the quality of www.shadowworks.co.uk their range starts within your budget.

15mm X-max. L = 1.3mH. Bl = 17.5 / 232g Mms.

@ 89 incl delivery probably a UK best buy.

Cheers ..... Graham.

Delivery bought the price up to just over 100 but still a great driver for the price.

Oddly though BK don't list this driver on their website, I purchased it on their advice and they had to send this link via email so I could see it.
