But as far as looking at a spec/datasheet, maybe some warning signs would be dips or peaks between the critical 1kHz-7kHz range. Especially dips or peaks at multiple harmonic frequencies or even larger dips or peaks at a single frequency.
Also, a higher efficiency driver at a cheap price might be a warning sign. Probably should be used in a multi-way speaker config instead of full range.

I am a great fan of Monacor drivers, but not so much of the full range ones. Mark Audio are not so easy to source in the UK. The 3" Faital Pro full rangers are very cheap and surprisingly good. For very little money you can experiment and learn.

I don’t think that is true. A distributor in Warwickshire. http://www.kjfaudio.com/

They also sell flat-paks. FHXL for instance likely more available than anywhere else.
