I got all excited about upgrading the crossover in my GR Research LS-9s with Jantzen copper foil wax inductors, values:

2@ .82mH (16Ga)

2@ .07mH (16Ga)

2@ 4.7mH (12Ga)

These are listed in the Jantzen catalogue, but are not carried in stock by their US distributor, Parts Express. PE told me (nicely) that they could not order them either.

I e-mailed Jantzen several days ago, but have not heard back from them (yet?).

If a tantrum would help, I would throw one.

Any ideas?

This place in Europe will sell you any Janzten coil. The site says they are in stock.....in fact, none of them are in stock. But once you pay, they will order them for you and in a few weeks they will get them and mail them to you. Others have used them with no problems......but don't cry to me if you have one....he he

I should have known you would come through (again!). Thanks, Ric. I'll give 'em a try.
Merry Christmas

I've never had much luck with tantrum capacitors, not even from throwing them. But, if it's Jantzen parts you're after, I can recommend the UK's HiFi Collective - see link. I've used them for several years.

Hmmmm. By "them", I mean HiFi Collective, not tantrum caps . . .

I would start with trying eBay UK.
I went to eBay UK and yes some Jantzen caps for sale..
If not right value, try emailing the seller of any Jantzen items and ask if they can get them?

I am in contact with Michael Jantzen. He's working up an order for me now, and I didn't even have to throw a tantrum, a selenium or anything else. Thanks for the inputs.
