You should be able to buy everything from Parts Express. For the caps, I'd go with Solen, Jantzen or Dayton caps. They are good quality value caps. I've never dabbled in fancy caps, but the price skyrockets quickly like in Tux's example.
You will need 3 20uf caps per speaker so about $24-36. You will
3 20uf @ $6ea - $18 total - http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=027-436
6.8uf - ~$3 - http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=027-424
.47uf ~ $1.50 - http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=027-206
1.5mh - ~$21 - http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...=255-426&DID=7
1.0mh - ~$17 http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...=255-422&DID=7

You need 8 $1.25 resistors. Pick them from here: http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-...-resistors.cfm
For the 8ohm 100w resistor, you can us five 40ohm 20w resistors ($.80ea) wired in parallel.
By my math, it is about $90 per speaker with 15ga inductors and Dayton poly caps.
Wayne charges $145 for built crossovers on PCBs with 15ga inductors. He probably uses the same parts I spec'd. His PCBs are $25. So he charges $~30 to assemble. You can make the call if the PCB and his assembly are worth the money.
If this is the 'upgraded everything' model, do you need the C1? If reading it correctly, would be omitted if using the upgraded tweeter. Perhaps I am mistaken. And maybe no one looks at this 2 yr old post, lol.
