I have a pair of Type A's that I bought in 1977 or 1978.   What I have does not seem to agree with your archives.  The serial number is 375 and it says they are Type A.  But the dimensions are those you give for the Type AII and the manual, which I still have, is different from the manual on the archives (e.g., recommended speaker placement is different).  For example, my "instruction manual" says "The Type A loudspeaker must be placed on the floor and against one wall.  Any other location will reduce the bass response (though moving the speaker a few inches away from the wall is of little significance)."  Also, the photo in the archives of the AII looks exactly like my pair.  I would like to see more documentation on the evolution of the Type A, and would be happy to help if I can.   

I am almost sure that the dimensions of the A's and AII's are the same. The picture of the A's looks correct, while the picture of the AII's looks like the AIII's. The bottom section of the AIII's are taller and a bit deeper than the A/AII's. I don't know when the AII's where introduced, but you could not have bought a pair of AII's in 1977/78. The production of the AII's continued until around 1988, when production of the Becker woofer stopped.
