You may want to check out some of Morel's drivers... apparently the Morel MW142 is very similar to the 15W75, there may be another that is simmilar to the 17W75

check out this link http://ldsg.snippets.org/vendors/morel.php3

They say that morel licence some of their technology from Dynaudio, and that both licence from scanspeak........

may be worth a look.

Tony.

Some Dynaudio drivers are still available in Holland. E.g. http://www.speakerland.nl/dynaudio-u.htm

Don't know if they will ship to the US, though.

I don't like Morel drivers very much. They seem to have too big tolerances for my taste - and for their price of course.

Default I got some promising news...

after submitting my post, i checked my phone messages, and found a reply from the person at Dynaudio, in response to my query, and the speaker I need can still be obtained thru them, but it will have to be pre-paid, and ordered to come from denmark.
I live about 20 minutes away from their North American HQ, so there should be minimal hassels involved.

I have used the 17W75XL and found them a little ho-hum. I think there are much better drivers to be had from Scan-speak (18W Revelator) and Seas Excel, just to name a couple. YMMV.

I can spare a pair for you if you want them just in case if the promising news is not materialized. This pair is from my stocks and never been used.

Default Spare Dynaudio drivers

Hi there,

I'm hoping that since you joined the conversation several years after it started, you still have these woofers available?

If so, please contact me - I have a pair of Gallo Ref II and although they are still 100% working, I would sure like to have a pair in hand just in case.

Thank You

Jaime

While Dynaudio stopped supplying bare drivers for diy they still replace dead ones.

You may have to send in the broken one though.

You should try the D 6.8-s from Hi-Vi. Same size, similar (but much sturdier) construction (cast frame, longer throw, 3" V.C. etc.). Even their T-S parameters are very close, and they definitely cost much less than the Dyna's.
