Cambridge Speakers

I purchased a sub box with 2 12" subs used a few years ago (haven't used it yet, mind you). The subs are unmarked on the cone, and on the magnet is

HIAIS Engineering Standards
by THE REAL SPEAKER COMPANY

There is a gold sticker on one of the baskets with RXS1240 printed on it. I think this speaker was manufactured by Cambridge Speaker Inc. based in Cambridge, ON, and they have apparently gone out of business. Has anyone ever seen subs from this company before, and would anyone happen to have any information on them? I'd like to know some driver parameters. Many thanks!

Thanks for your help! The cone and surround are all black. Here are some pics:

spec sheet

It's been a long time since your request but do you still need a spec sheet?
I have one and could scan it for you
The RXS line was designed to compete with and exceed JL audio.
I've used several Cambridge subs and woofers in the past and always found them to be very reliable and great sound. They made speakers for a lot of the big names PSB, Velodyne, Gersman, yorkville, paradigm....the list goes on

Cambridge was a good product. Company just didn't have enough vision to see it through. I have a pair of modified RXS drivers in my basement. I should also have the specs for all there standard in my files here at home. I used their Lotus Blue line back in the day to compete in SPL. Good stuff, but a little long in the tooth.
