Looks like a component version of the 416-8C to me. The magnet diameter is too small for a 515E. The cone is proper for either the 416 or 515E. The 416 has a 7.5 inch diameter magnet, the 515 is over 8 inches. Jim

...all the 416s had a hole in the cone like the one shown here; right? ....not on the 515..... I believe...

the 416 is a good hi-fi woofer....

I would not buy into any speaker w/no badge..
a gaussmeter might help....

That frame isn't a 416 either. There is a vent on the back of the woofer. Both 416 and 515 have a dust cap vent I think. Since there's a vented dust cap and a vented magnet makes this drivers basically useless in the present config.


But I'm no expert.
