Welcome to the forum,

Those are Philips alnico FRs . The attached transformer is an impedance matching transformer (today it would be 70V). The trafos are likely not much use, but the speakers are worth playing with. They are likely hi Q, so an open baffle would be the 1st suggestion for loading, with 10 you could do a 1.5-way or a 2-way system with 1 as FR (or midtweeter) and the over 4 to help down low,

dave

thx for the help. I dusted them all off today and it seems that only 4 looks to be in somewhat good condition. The other 6 don't look so much for this world anymore (i suspect that my cats has been playing with them)
