Have you checked with Great Plains Audio? They are Altec (the company) today. Hope this helps best regards Moray James.

He wants 406, not 405, though at this point I don't recall what the difference between the two is......

Hi all,
Thank's, yes it's for 406 - 8Y ..I found nothing about TS.
As soon as I would have done the measurements, I'll post here..
This driver seems to be rare.
Phil.

Default Altec 406-8Y TS Measurements?

Hi Phil

I have a pair of these drivers as well. Did you ever measure them? If so, would you be willing to share the results?

Thanks.
Jeff
