Default Mystery driver.

Hi all. I recently won these in a auction for about $15 total. Any ideas about who makes the driver in these Messina surround speakers?

After googling the numbers on the back of the drivers I can officially say that they are indeed mystery drivers. The numbers are as follows:

Messina 1BFA

Made in Korea

D439

Do any of these numbers ring a bell Dave?

I might try these in a Tabaq but they seem to be high end challenged as well as low. Maybe some Tabaqs with a tweeter. I would estimate about 88 dBs 1w/1m. Pretty cheesy but what the hell for $14.00. They might make some nice computer speakers. Or I might have wasted my time entirely. It won't be the last time.

They don't... any chance of a picture of the back. They sure have a striking resemblance to Rs 40-1197s from the front.
