other than the opening of pin-cushion mounting flange at corners, these certainly have all the hallmarks of the Foster series

Those are indeed. Some of the very last version used in the Admirals Tunnel Reflex, and likely a box left-over from the Admirals factory (it may well signal the death of someone's dad or grand-dad )

Being 16 ohm, they were probably development units for a dual driver box that didn't make it to production.

I have a single pair of these from a fellow that worked making the Tunnel Reflex. Unfortunately not all that well packed and they arrived damaged.

I don't really like the screw holes on these, but that is a minor quibble. They are certainly cheap. Buy 4.

(BTW looks like i have a set fully EnABLed with phase plugs for sale)
