Great news looks Alnico, its beyond me why it use cheap large area steel frame, less heat dissipation not to mention resonances. No additional info on its site.

When they get it coming.....they will do.  They are not the quickest in getting things done.  One thing for sure, it will be accessible vs all these ripoff people who charge $$$ just for Alnico label.

I believe they were a one off by Dave Slagle of Intact Audio.

I have no guess where they are today.

Classic Audio Loudspeakers (www.classicaudioloudspeakers.com) is one such company, and they do offer a single driver system (click on 'Contemporary line' on their website and scroll down to 'T-7). Sensitivity is not especially high for a single-driver system at 90dB, but it is a single-driver, field-coil system.
Field coils were popular back when commercially produced permanent magnets were extremely expensive and copper was not. They were thus a cost saving measure, not for 'improved sound', but there is this mythos about them in some parts.

The Classic audio T-7 is a new offering I think. I haven't seen it before at any rate. I'll try to give them a listen at the show this weekend.

Yay.  They need to update their main website with this sort of info instead of FB.

Great cant wait to see the freq chart.
I mean say the model name ''omega'' already used by Louis at Omega speakers, maybe he could continue with the ecologic theme name, its very friendly.

Response chart will look similar to the original Betsy I’m guessing. The new speaker is mostly the same driver but with an alnico magnet.

This not good, a Alnico magnet require other project diferent from Ferrite, the way to design the mobile parts of a Ferrite and Alnico speakers are very different not mentioning the critical VC, according the old school from 1940/50.

I'm not one to respond to lots of forum posts on my drivers, but I'll make an exception:

Of course we didn't reuse the voicecoil from the ferrite magnet.  We also used a different spider! 

We took what we loved most about the Betsy, and voiced the alnico version appropriately.

Call me impetuous, but I just ordered a pair of Wild Burro Alnico drivers to try out. The introductory price and ease of setup made for too much temptation.  :D
