That is, what I was trying to say (my english is a mess): I don't have the cabinet, I only have the midrange/twitcher horns. But it is definitley Electro Voice SM120A and ST350B. A portable case made in Switzerland, CH 2560 Nidau, Serial Number 46366 and 42267. Just like the case on Top of the cabinet in the your old EV catalog.

the fact that you say the cab was made in Switzerland gives us a big clue. Rather than go the route of importing fully built cabs into the UK or Europe, EV - who, like other speaker manufacturers at the time, felt their main market was selling components and gave away plans for building cabs to contain their drivers - allowed their distributors to manufacture cabs themselves based on EV plans but also allowed them some freedom to customise these cabs to suit the local markets. Your all-in-one cabs were probably the result of this customisation.
Hope this helps.

Yes it does, thank you!!! That makes sence! Especially, when you take a second look at the old EV catalog here: there you can read on the top right (magnifier) the same swiss address, that is written on my speakers. Nevertheless it is a shame, that the resolution of that jpg is so low, otherwise I could read all the details. So if anybody has the original brochure, please let me know!

I think shuttlesound used to do the same back in the day.

i had a large 3 box system back in the late 80's, had ev backplates and ev grills but never found another system like it.
