Arrow REALISTIC MC-1800 woofer

It was way ago that Realistic produced its' MC-1800 speaker box. Two way, 8" woofer and I think 2.5" tweeter. What was great about that speaker was the woofer; paper cone, it sounded simply great. I have one piece, and on the back it says WOOFER, 2058, 20W, made in KOREA 1991. Would anyone have a clue what could be the factory that made it?

Most of radio shacks audio was outsourced for manufacture. Any idea who made the parts you speak of?

Thais was exactly my question - who may have produced this part (woofer) ... All I know was data I mentioned in my lines above, which I read from the label on the back of woofer driver...And the whole speaker was actually assembled in Korea, as you indicated... What is so special about is the sound, thanks to very shallow, open design of LF paper driver, including ribs, kind that is hard, perhaps impossible, to find these days... I just hoped that if I would know manufacturer of the driver, they may still be producing the same model... I know, it is like looking for a needle in a haystack...
