That $5 is for regular mail. UPS is another beast altogether with a sliding scale "brokerage fee" for the value of the goods. HERE are the rates.

Thanks for saving me from cheaper built woofers Davy.

What's a good way to send to Canada? I'll tape a pair together for combined shipping to save a bit on cost.

USPS.

I've received a big box of six speakers from Weber that way, all in one piece and only $10 tax and $8 inspection fee.

It's cheaper to send a large order in two batches via USPS than by any courier in one batch.

Cheers!

About 30 left. If I shipped using USPS, shipping cost alone appears to be USD $301.86 for four. If I used UPS, shipping cost alone appears to be $405.63 both are excluding any duty or tariffs you'll have to pay on your end. By FedEx $405.63... Interestingly the same cost as UPS, hmmmm.

Pretty awful, heh?

Assuming SELKIRKSHIRE, TD7 4JX, UNITED KINGDOM

UPS has a 25KG box method I want to look into, but I don't know the dimensions. Each driver is 7.25KG.

They arrived in fine condition. It was $60.00 COD - $20 for tax, $40 for UPS brokerage "tip". So, all in, that's about $78.00 per driver - still a great deal.


Onward...

I did some measurements. All 4 out of the box measured fairly close to the specs supplied by Eminence. After running a break in (18hz @5 watts) all night on one of the drivers, I get the following results:

I used added mass (47 grams) VAS calculations and I also used sealed box VAS calculations for consistency.
Free air resonance:

I anticipate all of the drivers will have similar specs when broken in, I just tested another after 2 hours of break in and it's close to the above.

Pretty much eliminates any cost savings of buying it. Shame, they seem nice. A lot like a JBL 2235h from an application perspective.
