Neew RD0198-1 tweeters direct from Polk-no markings or identifiers on tweeter ro box-how to verify?

Hello, I just ordered two RD0198-1 tweeters direct from Polk on Monday, they arrived Friday 6-16-2017.

How do I identify the Tweeters? There are absolutely no model markings on the tweeters, or the boxes that they were shipped in.
Thanks!

    The 198's have one skinny blade and one wide blade..

    The 194's have the same size blade on both ends.

    Thank you David and ToolFan66!

    One of those posts were broken on my order, so I need to get a replacement from Polk.

    They don't really need a label or markings because it's self explanatory when you go to connect the terminals. The RD0194 needs the red mark because the terminals are the same size.

    I want to add that the packaging for the tweeters is first class. I've ordered 20 some and never had an issue. Therefore, I'd have to say your broken terminal tab is a fluke.

    I don't about the 198s but when I got my 194s there was no red dot as in yester years and I was told they are inscribed in that connector brown paper w/ the rivit holes in them. True they were stamped there but you needed an electron microscope to see them.This happens to be a #6502 w/ no red dot and you probably can't make out because of the flash the + sign on the leftb1gklegzf7py.jpg

    Why is there a piece of the gasket material missing from your driver?
