Hello, I'm Will Lane. I’m a qualified electronics engineer & have been designing / repairing loudspeakers + studying crossover & cabinet theory for more than 3 decades.
My wife Caroline is our accountant who keeps the books (& sometimes me) in order.
We specialise in supplying new and new old stock drive units + components; many of the items we sell are not available elsewhere. Our website will be changing regularly as we populate it with our inventory & expanding product range.
Our warehouse regularly contains over 2000 drive units, our website is only a snapshot of our stock holding; there are some very rare & interesting items coming soon; please bookmark us & our blog or join our mailing list for updates.
We supply various shops across the globe with hard to find parts & can offer trade quantities & volumes on selected items.
Our business has been built, not bought and has the firm foundation & belief of treating people as you like to be treated: with respect & honesty.
Loudspeakers are our passion ~ we don’t just sell them, we love what we do.
We look forward to doing business with you.
Will and Caroline
