Looking for one (or possible a pair) of these drivers in working condition. My location is near Sacramento, CA. Please post in this thread or send me a PM if you can help me out.

I just finished putting together an open baffle speaker using six of these drivers that I bought about 3 years ago or so. Only just now do I realize that one of the drivers has a rub/buzz problem. These drivers are NLA but I am hoping that there are some unused ones floating around someone's basement/attic.

The rub/buzz can be fixed... send it for repair.

It's probably cheaper to get a whole new driver... or at least that is my guess.

I could also try to see if there is something that has lodged in the gap and it causing the problem. Maybe I could blow it out with some compressed air?

It`s going to be difficult to blow out any lodged particle through the Peerless coil vents..
Getting a replacement driver would be the simplest,but you may need some patience..
