Best source of old neodymium magnets is from old Hard Drives. Though they are not the best for making a speaker. Those magnets tend to be flat and curved. Where you need a cylinder magnetized axially.

There are LOTS of suppliers as a Google search will tell you

You don't give your location so a more indicative answer isn't possible.

He said he lives in Bangladesh and online shopping isn't an option.

OK must read more carefully - In which case the OP is in a far better place to judge where to get the magnets he wants - as most of us don't do a lot of shopping around Bangladesh!
