I now have 2 more 15's . So i have 4 15's and 2 18's . They all are Becker. I don't know about the power rating or anything. They all are Squared magnets. Two of the fifteens are single magnets . The others are double magnets. The only writing behind the magnets are '' Becker USA " . I would really like to know more about them . Ill be happy if anyone could give me any info on them.

I found a few historical references to Becker in a Sonotone Speaker History page found here: http://www.roger-russell.com/sonopg/sonos.htm.

Here is a short quotation from that post referring to 1962: "Fred Becker of Becker Electronics had an office in Valley Stream, Long Island and a speaker manufacturing plant in East Durham, NY. The first driver that I developed with John Tiedje at Becker was an 8" wide range unit.".

I hope that this information is useful.
