The 400B is not a musical instrument speaker. It was an early full range driver (introduced in late 1940's) that was 8" in diameter and used an aluminum center dome in place of a dustcap. JBL developed their D208 to be a direct competitor. There is a limited amount of information on the following page along with compatible Altec enclosures from that era:

P.S. To Bertrand: Please do not post in all caps. It is considered the internet equivalent of shouting and is difficult to read.
