Default What is this driver? -thread

I recall there was a thread for unknown full range speaker drivers where people helped identify them, but search yielded nothing. So, here's a new thread for it.

Any idea what these two drivers are, both are in 50s tube radios?

I'm getting a Philips vibe from that first one.

None of the numbers appear to be an EIA code, so your guess is as good as any, though I've seen the driver bag on various Klangfilm units.

The first one is a Philips driver. It's either a 9768, 9769, or 9770. What is it's diameter? Does it have a whizzer?

If you tell me the numbers on the second driver, I can most likely identify it. Also a Philips unit. I can't read the middle three numbers in the photo: 49 _ _ _ 48.

The last speaker looks like something from R&A, but I've never seen one like that magnet style.

Thanks for the advices everyone. The two first ones are off the list for now, but still searching for the third one. I wonder if it's a sticker on top of the magnet. Sadly I can't really provide more photos as these are just collected from the sales ads in finnish "ebay".
