A database of databases, for common consumption. No doubt this represents only a piece of what's out there. Thanks to everyone who's posted or otherwise referred to these resources.

The difference between a measurement database and a publication that consistently bases its reviews on measurements is pretty thin. I've listed both and tried to rank them by usefulness in terms of what we've come to expect here (access to raw measurement data, descriptions of setup and equipment, clear interpretations).

I would add to your list:

Subwoofer CEA2010 measurements from Audioholics (shown in an excel file).

How to find it?
1. Go to https://www.audioholics.com/subwoofer-reviews
2. Click on latest review, latest is the SVS 3000 review.
3. Scroll to the bottom. You'll see: "Audioholics Subwoofer Measurement Data 11/11/19".

This is equivalent to the data-bass.com's CEA2010 measurements (shown as RMS SPL, measured at ground-plane @ 2m).
Cool, although I guess they use reviews as their main vehicle for uploading new spreadsheets rather than maintaining a central database.
There are other magazines/web journals with published measurements :)
Can you post a few? I was never much for audio magazines.

I stumbled on these:
ken rockwell - speakers & headphones
estradaistudio (polish) - basicly looks like a "sister site" to Audio.com.pl, I think worth including separately, due to specialization on studio monitors and other recording gadgets
digitalstereophony - some basic comparisons
I added the first two. The reviews in the last one focus too much on the kind of description that drives subjective reviews. Thanks again.

I came across another one interesting site, it is Czech distributor of pro audio equipment, they make their own measurements with MLSSA, take a look:
https://www.prodance.cz/ - on the upper left corner - "Měření" means "Measurements" in English.
Than, for example, Speakers subsection / sorted among manufacturers:
https://www.prodance.cz/reproboxy.html - each downloadable in pdf

Only a few loudspeakers and drivers, but why not to mention anyone? :)
I came across this web searching google if someone measured Creative Gigaworks T40 (MTM mass market PC speakers), they did.

This looks like a DIY site. Cool find.

I've wanted to know measurements of those Creative speakers for a while. Ah well. Could've been better.
