I can assure you that the replacement midrange unit is 'official'; there is nothing unofficial about it. As far as sound goes I personally prefer the new unit, but not by a country mile. The unit was only sourced as a replacement and though many may prefer the sound it was never intended as an 'upgrade', only as a replacement to keep our longstanding Keltik customers happy.
Interestingly most people who have performed the replacement (predominantly retailers) have complained about the 'flimsy' design of the unit compared to the original. This is true enough as it has a pressed steel chassis rather than the more robust cast chassis' of the original unit. However, once firmly secured to the cabinet the chassis is plenty strong enough for a midrange unit. The benefit of this 'cheaper' chassis is that proportionally more of the money can be spent on the motor and cone.
Anyway, I digress... It is official
