So .. you want to pay more just ... to pay more?!
I mean you got two choices:
Speaker with El-Cheapo parts -> Absurd markup -> Retail price.
Speaker with Deluxe parts -> Even absurder markup -> Retail price.
No matter how you slice it, the absurd markup will see to it, that you NEVER get "your money's worth" in terms of part quality. You will always pay way, way more than the speaker would actually be worth in terms of materials, R&D and labor.
Loudspeaker manufacturers are in it to make a killing and rob you blind, if you let them. Simple as that.
There is only one objective way around this: Taking complete control yourself.
Design and build speakers yourself.
Well the previous example I gave, is a case where one is literally getting most of the cost being components.
