Thanks I've already asked Nelson. He responded promptly to my email and I found out that besides being an incredibly gifted designer he's also an incredibly giving person! He donated his 2 El-Pipo's to an artists group. Unfortunately for me he didn't know where I could obtain another one of these drivers so I'll continue my search!

Thanks Tomtt. The magnets look the same but the largest driver on this site is 15" whereas the driver I have is 21" That said "if" I have to I might consider scaling down the design and using four of those 15" drivers. But I think I might have a line on a second 21" driver but, I have to complete tracking it down first!

Thanks, Thetubeguy1954

Sorry,

tomtt said http://www.lyeco.com.tw/woofer.htm and then http://www.lyeco.com.tw/pa.htm, so I thought I'd see if there was a spec sheet for the 21" version (which there was). I don't know if it's the same 21" in tubeguys's original photo (B&W hides a multitude of sins), but it's reasonably close and does have a cloth surround.

Hello Again Tomtt!

Thank you so very much for locating that driver. I do believe that's the very woofer I own and have been searching for a mate! It appears they've decided to change the power flower's magnet color from red to black but, other than that the specs seem to line right up with mine. There's only probem though and it's a fairly difficult obstacle to overcome. I contacted the company directly about obtaining some of their drivers and here's their response...
==============================================
Dear Tom,

Thanks for your inquiry. Weve been running the business model of B2B and just accepting orders with minimum quantity. Our Minimum Order Quantity = 50 pcs

Best Regards,

Edward Chang

==============================================
So Tomtt even though my prize lies within reach unless I can get a group of us together and form a MOQ of 50 pieces of the
LW2102NPC 21 in woofer it will be strictly Just looky no touchy! I honestly don't know what's worse, not being able to find it or being able to find it but, not being able to purchase it due to their MOQ policy... I do however greatly appreciate the time & effort you took to help me locate this unique and IMHO quite desirable driver.

Why not ask that company for information on where you can purchase a pair? IE what retail or manufacturer has actually order some.

Since it's for sub duty and you seem predisposed to use 21"ers, just use these inexpensive Pyles until you can round up some more MCMs: http://www.gooddeals18.com/product/PDW21250?meta=FRG

Thanks for the suggestion Flip but, I've already asked MCM and they chose not to respond to my question. Besides I've located ---{with the help of a member here}--- the original manufacturer who was Lyeco since then. This is a link to their website: http://www.lyeco.com.tw/series.htm if you click on the link look at model LW1502KGR and you'll notice except for the color being yellow it uses the "flower-power" arrangement on the magnets.

I wrote Lyeco and they verified they made the driver I own but, sadly they told me they no longer make it. I was told by the same person who sent me the link that Lyeco still makes the 21 in driver but, Lyeco made no mention of it when I asked them. That said I've found ---{due to Tomtt, the member here who provided the link}--- that in Lyeco's "pro audio" area they do indeed have a 21 in driver who's model # is LW2102NPC This driver can be seen here: http://www.lyeco.com.tw/pa.htm On this model the magnets aren't yellow or red. Now the magents are black but, other than that it does seem to be the same or very close to the driver I own.

It appears I'll have to contact Lyeco yet once again! I guess we had a loss in the language translation as it appears they're making hat I'm looking for afterall. Thanks for your consideration and input Flip.
