Default Can anyone identify these speakers?

These speakers popped up on kijiji, I'm very curious about them. The lenses have especially piqued my curiosity. I'm trying to set up an appointment to see them but no reply yet. Can anyone fill me in?

cannot say that I recognize them but I have a pair of JBL L200B which have acoustical lenses not totally unlike those in your picture. They (the JBL lens) work well as far as dispersion goes but they (imo) screw up the stage and image. I much prefer the speaker without the lens. Just something I noticed which might not prove anything but when I first got the JBL's I did a lot of searching on them and found a lot of pictures and guess what? Most that I found were with the lenses removed. I thought that was odd until I removed them to listen to the trumpet horns which sound wonderful with the LE85 drivers, magical drivers. Simply my two cents compounded with the fact that those JBL lenses soon went away and were not seen munch again. That tells a story. The aspect ratio of the lens shown is troubling you usually see such ratios with smith horns. Good luck with your mystery speaker it looks nice though do have fun. Best regards Moray James.
