New Weber Legacy speakers???!!!!!

I just noticed that Weber has a new line of speakers that Mr Ted was developing before he passed away... does anyone know what these are? They seem to be some sort of Celestion/ Scumback type.... most curious!

Since I live close to their HQ, I've been able in the past, request/order the same features on this new line of speakers when I order a British series 1265 or 1225.

“The 'Legacy' line is similar to a group of speakers that we previously built as a 'turn-key' product for a retailer. We have decided to honor Ted's legacy and exclusively sell these speakers via our website……. Doping: Pre-Rola treatment standard.”

Who is this other retailer? My first thought was Scumback though I hope Jim chimes in and lets us know if it is or not.

Very interesting, so who is going to take the plunge first and order one.

I can't believe the number of options, holy cow, you can pretty much tweak everything to a point....

Well..., I've been needing a speaker for my empty 1 x 12 Mojo cabinet, so I just ordered one... a 75Hz cone/British dust cap/8ohm/40oz magnet/100 watt.

Nice! We eagerly await your review. What was your thought process behind the magnet size? Why the 40oz?

Now who has Weber had dealings with of this sort? Scumback, Tungsten... Eminence I know build speakers to Weber's specs...

Odd that Weber persists in going with 30 and 40 oz mags though and not the correct 35 oz mag as used by Celestion.

Since Weber didn't have the 35 oz option, I figured on just rounding up from 35oz to 40 oz....

I'm just looking forward to hearing some clips, it's (to me) irrelevant what other company may have had any agreements concerning these speakers. It may sound self centered, but I just want to hear them and buy them if I like them.

So does anyone have any wild guesses (facts hopefully) as to what these Legacy speakers used to be named and who had the falling out with Weber?
