A database of measurement databases, for common consumption. I refer to a few all the time. No doubt this represents only a piece of what's out there.

Thanks to everyone who's posted or otherwise referred to these resources.

External Databases
Speaker Data Viewers
Certain manufacturers provide data for viewing. A list is available on CLF, though it looks out of date.

I'll mention Head-Fi (not updated?), SBAF and Crinacle (Link 1, Link 2) here, just to be complete.

Edit: The reason I've not added them above is because the interpretations they offer are often very questionable, despite using measurements.

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.
