I was looking for exactly that same exact speaker just last night and almost bought it from Scumback (actually had it in my cart). Thankfully I was googling reviews before pulling the trigger and found this thread. I ordered a Legacy from Weber. I pasted below the specs from my order confimation--pretty sure this is the same specs as a M75 65W 8ohm. (The Scumbacks M75s used to say they had 35 oz magnets, but I read on a different thread that Weber rounds the magnet weights and "30 oz." magnets are really "35 oz.")Not interested in the speculation, but I would like just to find out what is now available that are Scumbacks. Say, I want to buy a Scumback M75 65 watt 8 ohm speaker. Who can I buy them from new and how much are they from each distributor? I don't care if it says Scumback or not.

I'm pretty confident I bought a very similar (possibly an exactly similar) speaker to the ones Weber was shipping out as Scumbacks M75s a month ago (sans mojo of course) and saved myself $50. Scumback was actually having a $20 off sale so, the Weber would have been $70 less than the M75 at Scumback's regular price. (Weber's shipping was $3 cheaper than Scumback's too.)
Don't know (or much care) about the dealings between Weber & Scumback, but I'm betting any quality accusations against Weber are marketing spin. I have 3 other Weber (Jensen-style) speakers in various amps. I like them and I've never had any problems.
