That SP number is a bit higher than what I'm used to. Perhaps it's from a C30 or C60? I'll have a look at a C30 to see if I can confirm.

I would suggest it's not from the lower members of the C series ~SP1199 or K series, but beyond.
The C60 uses a round not square framed basket btw.
How about the C15 or C45?

I'd also expect they're from a cheapish (throw away) product where there's no demand for spare bass mid units.

Unless you're very lucky it's a case of building a test box to measure the Small Thiel parameters yourself.
