It looks like a nice quality knockoff, has some significant differences, but is probably still a decent driver. You should find some data for them and post that!

these are most likely not real scanspeaks. look at cheaply made basket. If they made exact replica of scanspeaks' motor, it may be a good driver. Looks like progressive spider is copied correctly.

What's cheaply made about the basket?

that's why i was not dared to buy even it was cheap enough, because i looked for it for a long time, but didn't found any exactly look the same one~
but anyway, i don't want a clone scan speak bcoz i can have a lot of good choices over that price.

Yes as badman asked, what's cheap about the basket? Personally I'd buy one just out of curiosity and see how it performs. One word of caution though, the coil looks to have probably 3-4mm of xmax and certainly not 6.5mm like a real 15W. The model number is also M15W, this might be a knock-off of a midrange driver rather then the mid/bass.

cheaply made in comparison to real scanspeaks. nothing wrong with this basket, besides lesser cosmetics. scanspeak's basket has distinct shape and powdery finish.

It is not a Scan Speak driver, As suggested it looks exactly like the copy drivers of Scan Speak T+A gets from Asia. There Vifa/Scan Speak looking ringradiator tweeter drivers T+A uses are also asian copyes. Sorry to see a European brand doing this, it is not like there products are cheap for the end user!!
The driver seems to be well made, also the basket, but how it performs is not known. As fare as I know the slices are not cut through the cone and glued again with damping glue? If you support people copying other peoples hard work, then this is the best driver for you to buy in my oppinion.
