I wonder if you can help me identify the speakers I've owned since the mid-70s. I've always assumed them to be a pair of KEF speakers made up from a kit. However, there are no identifying labels anywhere on the outside of the enclosures, and the only clue I've found is a small sticker attached to the bass driver which states "KEF SP 1022" and "19 J2575" which I assume is a quality check label from the factory. They have three drivers, all circular rather than the oval ones featured in some of the photos on the website. The cabinet looks very similar to the KEF Cadenza in construction (same bits of Velcro to hold the baffle in place, and similar wood veneer).
They have a lovely, soft sound which was great when I ran them from a Quad 22 valve amp; those days have gone, sadly, and I need to make some space. I'd like to find them a good home, but need to know exactly what they are. Is anyone able to identify them from the information above? The friend who sold them to me told me they were rated at 4 ohms, though the sticker on the SP 1022 states it is 8 ohms.

Any information would be very welcome!
Photos available, but I can't work out how to add them to this post!

The woofer is the B200 made by KEF for the Cadenza ABR system. The lower tweeter is a Celestion HF1300 or 1400 (depends on magnet size). The upper unit may be a Coles "supertweeter". Definitely not an official KEF design - somebody's home brew.
