i just got a set of these and was wondering is there anywhere to get some info on these? i can find plenty on the 838a's but not the 838b's. also the cone on the drivers measure 10" but the info i got on the 414z drivers says 12" any help?

you might try a search ...

e.g., this popped up:

http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?15177-838b-carmel-s-saved-from-life-of-doom

Official literature from that time period is ... somewhat lacking.

414z drivers are considered 12" units.
