BC-348"O" Questions

Came into several receivers today including a beautiful BC-340O, not "Q"
built by RCA. The inside is even cleaner than the outside! Other than my
RAO-7 and playing with ARC-5 receivers in the 1960's when I was a kid, I
know nothing about military anchors or BC-348's

The radio has an AC supply built in which although done very nicely I
assume is not original. The radio plays but sensitivity seems down and
seems very lossy when the Xtal filter is switched in..

Questions I have ( I don't have a schematic yet)

Where do you hook a speaker?

There are a couple of "VT" type tubes inside. What are the equivalent
civilian tubes?

Where can I get a schematic?

Anything strange to look for?

Thanks and 73,
