about the OEM speaker ?

oem is just the same but with no specs so that you cant copy there box design that it came out of.. eg

oem lg burner at my work comes with oem burning software and bare drive

retail is drive books cables instructions and free cd's

not much diff if ya ask a computer geek but a ordarnary person will hate it.. hehe
 
Most speaker manufacturers don't build their own drivers. That is done by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer). The units can be stock if the manufacturer is only buying a few drivers, a modification of a stock driver (ie: i have some PSB labeled Vifa P17s that have different specs from ones you can buy), a new driver based on available parts (ie Shiva -- OEM is Eminence), or a completely proprietry (ie Jordan -- Vifa is now the OEM).

I am not certain what you are asking. Are you looking to replace a specific driver in a certain commercially made speaker, or are you planning to build your own unit from scratch?

Normally, OEM speakers are ordered by the speaker manufacturer in bulk. Are you planning to start a line of speakers?

Here is a URL that might do you some good anyway:

Audax speakers are often available in the UK cheaper than elsewhere. Maplin has some models:

If these are not what you need, let us know what you are trying to do specifically.
