Visaton TL-Monitor 473 D, anyone got plans?

After 12 years I finished the woodwork of my Bruce V1.2 (from the old frugal-horns site) and I remembered I have on the shelf some Visaton speakers.

It is a set of the TL 16H HF horns and the DR45/MH300 MF horns.

Now when I bought these years ago I thought of making the TL 860 D monitors. But after building the Bruce I know my woodwork skills are not up to it to build the octogonal enclosure. And they are rather large for the apartment I live in. So I looked through the original TL book (dated 1987!) and saw the TL Monitor 473 D.

This is a rectangular boxed version with a single woofer using the DR45/MH300 and TL 16H.

But I cannot find any plans of it. Not on the Visaton site/forum and even google turns up nothing, not even a photo of those speakers. Does anyone has (a link to) the plans for these?

Alternative would be to make the 890 D into a rectangular box but I don't really want to spend time doing that.
 
Hello...
@Havoc
Do you have the whole TL book from 1987?
Can you scan the book and send it to me as a PM!?
@Mattes
You uploaded the plan here ... do you possibly have the rest of the article too ...
I was able to buy a pair of these speakers a few weeks ago and am desperately looking for information about them!

Many greetings from Germany

Guess you would have to design a box.
Is interesting absolutely no photos of the 473-D
horn is 685mm wide. guessing the lower cabinet
was as wide as the Horn

What woofer would you use?
TIW 360- 8 or TIW 300- 8

Moin Guido,

Sorry, I´ve missed your request... But here you go, this is from Elrad Extra 4 from 1986, so you have a classic speaker there. Hope the drivers are still fine! If they were mine, I would consider a rebuiling of the crossover, especially replacing the L-pads... there´s of course no guarantee to make things "better".
Hope the scan makes sense... a bit difficult to scan those old magazines, don´t want to destroy them...

All the best

Mattes
