She said if the numbers on the speakers start with 86, that was a cabinet fitted with Eden speakers. A rare option only available for a year or two. She said it was a lucky find and I should be quite happy.
Ummmm...... Dunno what to say, exactly, but EVERY speaker at SLM had an 86 prefix....... whether they came from Eden or Eminence, or from china.
Eden 10" are 86-508-08 and 86-508-16 they are cast frame, and fairly chunky, actually. If you have them, you did do pretty well. That was an expensive cab when new.
A Gauss 15" is 86-790-01, a Fane Medusa 86-090-08, etc, etc...... Whoever told you that about the numbers had no idea what they were saying, or worse.
