I played with 1803s in my misspent youth, with 288s on them of course. Very niceI am sure they are -- I've never run across either in the field...
andeven though I know some folks who are big into such arcana.
I think it is “only” the drivers for the Q series, none for the R series or above. I faintly remember it was a France based online shop but not entirely sure.I've seen an online web shop for new Kef drivers, sorry I don't have the link. The UniQ is a very nice sounding driver, you can make crazy coax of it by adding proper woofers
I see, may be the mothership of French' repair shop. Anyway, when addressing my bookmark setelec-shop.fr I'm redirected to the 909 page. As they refer to pending orders, well, that's quite an indication for the address to be real. They didn't carry the meta version anyway, only up to I think the plain Q's, but not R's. Delivery time was counted in months, and so again, the closure is plausible.Works for me
But didn’t check if they still carry the Q UniQs.
Edit. You are right that either is a different company and or they indeed discontinued the UniQ spares. Sorry to hear.
As this is about pro/ p/a targeted drivers, what about .Kartesian (watch the dot)? They have a 6,5" incher that is pretty loud but expells some hifi virtues too.Can I buy a new KEF coaxial driver anywhere? Or is it only online used ones?
So, yeah, these things still fascinate me Seems like you could just combine this with an 18" PR with enough excursion, making it much easier to build vs a long reflex path. The Dayton 18" PR seems to do the trick. Also get's to 110 dB max at 20 Hz with 400gr of added mass to the PR. Surprisingly a single PR seems to be enough to tame the beast, making it even economically not even that bad of a choice either I've also tried to sim a PSICarAudio 18" PR, which has a bit more excursion, but it looks hideous and you don't really gain that much performance. It's also hard to get to the EU probably.Looks like we may have a new contender for the top crown of Crazy PA Coaxials:
100 dB (LF), 110 dB (MF/HF) sensitivity, 1600 W continuous program power capacity, 60°x40° nominal coverage, 44 - 18000 Hz response, FEA optimized horn flare for improved acoustic loading and controlled coverage, Double silicone spider with optimized compliance, Aluminium demodulating ring for...www.bcspeakers.com

They will set you back € 809/piece if you buy two. Not to bad if you consider the cost of the coaxial tweeter and the horn alone.
