I love the look and scale of this design.  It just looks right.  It's a shame Brian didn't do a Neo panel version!  That would have been sweet.   :D

"These are two huge brutes!

They rock down to a low 10hz, much below human hearing but you can feel that thump!! Each one has one 12" poly woofer with rubber surround and a 15" mass loaded radiator. They are coated with a borosilicate coat to dampen internal reverb.

Dimensions: 18" x 20" x 28"

Bid with confidence. I am an Honest Ebayer and not a professional seller. I sell items that I do not need anymore at a dirt cheap price. Check my positive feedbacks! :)

Optional Shipping:


If you want to hire a shipper, and be responsible for cost, packaging/crating, insurance, etc. I can have them ready for pickup from Columbia, MD. The speakers would NOT be prepped for shipping. You or the shipper would have to do the prep work to protect/ship them

NOTE: I am selling the VMPS ribbon speakers separately. Please check my other items!"

"I'm looking to downsize my system. These speakers don't come up for sale in the Midwest often. The speakers are in good shape and work as they should. I'm not desperate to sell, so pretty firm at my number. Thanks for looking."

Hello Stimpy, I was wondering if you know where I could find the mid driver in a WCF. Like the ones your referencing.
I have both types of 12" WCF single and double stack magnets but seemed to have misplaced the mids.
I need to do an upgrade for the new amps, the old 12" drivers, just aren't up to the task, when I volume UP too much.
I don't want to tear them up either. Still sound really good with valve amps.
I'm pretty sure it took a different PR too. Would you know of any?

2 mids (gotta check ohm)
2 PRs

I'm not sure if they are 4 or 8 ohm, I'll check. I remember both models, WCF and the originals were a GOOD driver, NEVER
had a problem with either. Just the 12" WCF were difficult to drive with 40 wpc valve amps. It's the only weak point of the old
boxes "The Mids", Sure is a great comco though.

I haven't tore into the TIIse yet. Want to do it all at once, XO repair/rebuild, the ribbon tweet was blown, driver swap, add a
little bracing, and a second application of sound coat. The wiring/toggle and pots are all old. I'm sure they all need a good cleaning etc. I've been on a "replace the old wire", tangent here lately, breaking in my new Weller. I have to look at the Quasi wiring you spoke of, also.

I suppose the current mids could stay, just have to run a little hotter than I like.

Thanks OldHvyMec

The only one I know, that might have any mid woofers, would be Pat Malaga.  Pat bought out the VMPS warehouse, after Brian passed.  He advertises on Craigslist.  He usually has various drivers and cabinets for sale.  Pat is in CA, around San Francisco.

Cabinets

If Pat doesn't have anything, you could try Misco.  They made Brian's WCF woofers.  Misco wouldn't have the exact drivers, but they probably would have something close.

One other possibility is Parts Express.  Brian used them for certain woofers.  Usually, Goldwood Heavy Duty woofers, in his subs.  But, Goldwood makes different sizes, in 4 and 8 Ohm.  As a last resort, I'd measure the impedance of your woofer, and match it to a Goldwood.

Good luck!
