US-based OEM speaker manufacturers Misco, operating under their trade name Bold North, have introduced what they claims is a direct replacement woofer for the long-discontinued Yamaha NS10, the MS10W. While other companies have made drop-in replacement woofers with white cones, Misco maintain they are the first to match the sonic character of the original woofer precisely, using the same paper cone design (reverse-engineered and manufactured from scratch) and advanced laser interferometry measurement techniques. Once the MS10W was complete, Misco enlisted the help of pro recording engineers to evaluate the speakers to ensure it matched the timbre of the original.

Each replacement woofer retails for $219.95 each, or $189.95 each for two or more. According to Misco, more Bold North speaker-related products are set to follow, aiming “to meet the needs of pro audio companies, recording studios, branded high-end HiFi speaker system manufacturers, and advanced DIY hobbyists.” So watch this space...
