802 8g and 808 8B both have the same motor and "Tangerine" phase plugs, and Alnico mags... The later 902 series, with ceramic mags and a different shape, also have the tangerine phase plug. Earlier 802 beside the 2 mentioned (as well as 808 8A) have annular phase plugs and the same basic motor as the 808 B and 802 8G, also with alnico mags. The 804, 806, 807 numbers have a shorter, smaller motor. (and not the high frequency extension as the other models)

Bear - I responded

Here are some low res pics
Altec pics

The drivers are actually in pristine condition, never having been out of my hands since they were new and only ever used in my own home.

I officially retract this statement and deny that it was me who made it. I now agree with Russell and what he posted.

Sorry Cal, I'm holding you to it. These are actually rebadged Altec 806 drivers and 811 horns made for Heathkit as used in the AS-101. I am 100% sure.
