    I see you posted at the same time as me.

    I actually have a pair of brand new (old stock) Heybrook drivers of this type. Mine are 8", those in the picture are 6.5" I believe.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Those are very close to the ones from these Mordaunt-Short's.
    Thanks again for your help...

    If you need some of those tweeters, I think I've probably got a few in the garage.

    The bass drivers were Mordaunt Short’s own design and build. They were designed to be run full range without a crossover.

    As mentioned previously, the tweeters are generic Audax types, found in many entry level speakers. This always puzzled me as the MS100 and MS300 were higher spec models with bigger price tags and the specially designed bass drivers were the main selling point. Why, then, would you mate them with some cheap generic tweeters when the tweeters in your cheaper models were made in-house and were better?!
