don't TC sound make their own drivers? if yes then tc sound is the oem. which i believe they're the oem for a lot of customer.
if it's from china i'd be careful. some small variation in the construction will lead to a very different T/S parameter.

how much they're selling anyway?

if they post the driver actual picture it'd be more trustworthy.
the MOQ is too high. maybe request a single sample before bulk buying? biggrin.gif

I want a few but sorry, I have to sit this one out unless there is some sort of reliable guarantees that it will be up to spec.

I am in the market for four, but I think I have the same reservations the others here are expressing, not to mention the fact that I am sure certain aspects of the TC Sounds design are patented and the OEM would most certainly be under contractual obligation to not sell TC Sounds design "on the side" so-to-speak.

Seems like there are a lot of questions to be answered first before dollars are committed.

you are right, I have contacted them, they specifically mentioned/ said cannot selling to US market, but there is a workaround if I can be the middle man since I'm not from US

To be more precisely, it's not really a clone as they are the OEM/ build house that produces the actual drivers of TC Sounds. They can't sell to any countries where Parts Express already has the distribution rights and also US patents. Hope this clarify.

Hmm, I missed out on the FTW-21 awesome buy since cash flow was tight then. Who is the build house, because I really thought TC was a build house for high end drivers like the LMS?

Also, is that rust in the pole vent?

Could it be this overseas manufacturer is no longer being used and therefore using their remaining part inventory and know-how?

Looks like some metal filings left to sit in the pole vent and rusted.
