    Try Port Colborne[​IMG] Though I have built av1+'s and recently one av12 sealed sub(by this weekend two) and a sonotube based sub. Shipping and exchange and taxes can really bump up the price up here so I can see staying in Canada. What are you planning to build?

    Not sure yet. Need to find some drivers first then go from there. I like the list of stuff they have at parts express but shipping charges and everything would really be expenisve.

    I have made plenty of subwoofer box's and stuff for friends aswell as myself using car audio drivers with good results but im looking into trying out some new stuff. Now if only I can find a place to buy some drivers. [​IMG]

    SERIOUSLY, check this place out:

    http://www.creativesound.ca/products.php?make=Adire

    Thats a list of all drivers that CreativeSound has advertised on their website.

    The Shiva and the Tempest would be the two most popular from them, as they are offering just $1 shipping on either to anywhere in Canada.


    They are honsestly worth checking out. They also have higher and lower end drivers than those, but thats where Im getting MY drivers from. You just cant beat that.

    I would take a look here:

    www.Solen.ca

    They carry most all of the popular high end speaker drivers available. I have ordered from them a couple of times in the past, and everything always worked out great. They also supply some of the really exotic high-end drivers like ATC and Volt. Hope that this helps...

    Looking for mid's, tweet's and woofers. I've had so many different subwoofers over the last 3 years and i've finally got something i like and...

    I'm willing to bet my 2 jl audio 10w3's can keep up with any shiva box so need to upgrade really!

    And yea I checked out that site right after you posted it. I was sort of disapointed at the lack of peerless or vifa drivers, but I will try and dig up some info on some of the stuff they do carry. Alot of it I have never herd of except for adire audio.

    I think Parts Express is the only place to find Hi-Vi drivers in north america. That's who I went though to get my four M8a's last year.

    As for Solen and Creative Sound both are very good to work with and I've ordered plenty from both in the past.

    My aplogies Josh, I made the assumption that you were looking for a subwoofer driver. And then I went and forgot obout Solen, even though theyre on my favorites list.

    Big help Ive been. lol.

    Still might be looking for a subwoofer in the future though. The subs i have now are geared towards music and not so much home theater (fs 29 but decent excursion 14.7mm)so I may just get one of those temptests everyone seems to be talking about.

    Josh whats the QTS of those drivers this is also a very important parameter, even if the FS of the driver is 29 hz it will still play very low if it has a high QTS.
