As I've got :-

A pair of MS 737's - two KEF B200's SP1014, plus Decca London Ribbon.

Some MS 235's - KEF B200 SP1014, Peerless 10 DT, Coles 4001G.

Know the later MS 400's used KEF B139, T15 plus Coles 4001G, ealier versions used an eliptical EMI bass.

And the the MS 700 used a Baker bass unit , KEF B110A mid and Decca Kelly Ribbon.

I'd thought that an additional thread was in order. Any other offers? Smile

The MS-737's technical information and a picture of one of mine is here Smile .

If you ever find any of the 200, 400 or 700 series, you must inspect the crossover.

Although polyester capacitors are used, some examples use the infamous Mullard exploding liquorice alsort components Sad .

Cheers for that information.
Mine are the metal horns with a round black matching transformer, I suspect was added at a later date.
Obviously having an active system it is easy to match the SPLs of individual transducers.
Will post some pictures in a few days.
