    This 15” driver came out of a roached out corner speaker cabinet that contained a University crossover and horn. I don’t think it’s a university? I almost looks like a Jensen to me.

    Anyone know off the top of their head?

    The data on the rim suggests that it is a Jensen A15PM built the 33rd week of 1966.

    Why funny?
    I see the part number, just wasn’t sure who was the manufacturer. Is that model an obvious Jensen?

    220 = Jensen manufacturer EIA code. This is the obvious identifier to me. Utah used the same style baskets and can type magnet covers as did Magnavox on a couple models. The EIA code removes any question.

    633 = 33rd week of a year ending in 6. We narrow it down to 66 as few speaker manufacturers were using EIA codes in 1956, Jensen might have been but i am doubtful of conspicuous stamping at that point, and a 1976 driver would have a ferrite motor.
