Question UA Ultra Acoustic Systems 300 Series

Hey All.
Just picked up a pair of these but I've never heard of the brand before.
Does anybody here happen to know anything about these?
I'm digging the fact it has L-pads! But to my ears, they just sound OK, not great.
Maybe white van'ers? Heh

Thanks!

NICE FIND! if they were cheap or free. I know nothing about them but if id seen them cheap, i would have grabbed them too!

It looks like the woofers may not be original.

I wonder if they were sold new from Radio Shack too? I recall some of the Realistic branded speakers had Lpads.

There were two tiny wires that were cut hanging from the outer terminals but was plugged into the inner terminals of the woofer. Def not original. And really these aren't real l-pads, they are very small volume pots.

Ah. Not so good I guess. Nice studio, I have less than half the equipment, and no room to have it set up permanently. One day.

Thanks man. Yeah I'm a sucker for cheap speakers. If I don't like em as is, I just grab the drivers and chuck the boxes.
