Single 8Ω HiFi speaker needed
 
I am looking for a single good-quality 8Ω loudspeaker, possibly using a bass driver of about 5" or so. I am building an EnviroSynth and to make the sound as authentic as possible I want to build it into a quality cabinet. I have a couple of suitable drivers but no cabinet, and I don't have the facilities to make one.
I foolishly threw out my last Keesonic Kub as the bass driver was faulty but that would have been perfect, I could easily have fitted a replacement driver for this application.
If anyone has something like this lurking in the den, preferably not too far from Bristol, and want to offer it to me, I'd be a happy man!

Their are lots of secondhand approx 5" good quality speakers around from scrap cars but I think most of them are 4 ohm, don't know if you can get around that.

I think Richard wants a complete speaker, not just a driver.

That's correct.

I have a very solid ex-music centre Panasonic which would fit the bill and which you could have FOC if you can transport it from Oxford.

2-way, about 20W if I recall correctly. 1970s vintage.

Thanks Nick, that sounds about the right thing!

I'll try an FCS request for transport.....

Richard, I've got a few spare speakers lying around. If you want to come round and take your pick you're welcome.
