Default Do these guys look like full rangers?

I found these in an old GE turntable system. The electronics were all solid state, so I'm guessing these are 70's vintage? That might be a date code on the back. Any idea what these are? It might be fun to play with them...

How big are they? If over 5-6", I'd expect them to need a tweeter, given their lack of whizzer. If smaller, the question is whether they have the x-max and a low enough Fs to produce any bass. Playing can always be fun, regardless of whether they work all by themselves.

Hmmm...

Put them on a baffle with bass help, see what comes out. Probably the easiest thing to do...

Thanks, Dave. I knew someone would identify them. I guess they're not of much value... maybe they could go into a little practice amp for someone's guitar. I didn't use a ruler, but the drivers are about six inches across. Too small to be 8" and too big to be 4".

If they were in there by themselves, probably they are "fullrange", or at least "widerange". As stated by others, the lack of whizzer might call for a tweeter coming in somewhere from 6-10cps depending on their dispersion pattern.
