Here is a link to DIY enthusiast who wants to build a 3 way transmission line tower speakers with Vifa drivers. Crossover components & drivers are avilable in India.

diy TL

The transmission line speaker system (TLS), which is a kind of the enclosure type. The biggest advantage of this method may be the extension of low range and damping, the sound from the back side of a bass driver does not leak through the thin cone. The sound wave from the back of the woofer is channeled down a long pathway filled with a fibrous bundle of wool or synthetic material. In a properly designed line, low frequencies exit the end of the transmission line that extend the low frequency response below the fundamental resonance of the driver. There is no pressure in a transmission line to excite enclosure resonances. In a sealed or ported box, enclosure resonances can usually only be controlled, not eliminated as in a properly designed TL enclosure.

There are many such designs on internet.Mostly they use Fostex, Lowther,VIFA etc

Where can we get drivers in india, specially from mumbai . Though we can get the cabinets done using ply and local carpenters i dont know about the sourcing of the parts.

Does this discussion mean that If one doesnt want to source drivers from other countries it is better to stay away from the DIYspeaker building in India. Is there no manufacturer in india which produces good quality drivers to quench the thirst of DIYers?
