Default Identifying (vintage) units

Hello.

I need some help identifying some old units in a DIY speaker. I don't know much and don't have access to them (considering buying them. They're cheap).

What I know is; they were built "professionally" in Denmark in 1980. They are rated at 40w. Aaaand that's about it.

I hope someone is able to identify them by their looks! :-) I have been Google'ing different brands and whatnot, but haven't been able to find


Thank you all in advance! :-)

I've been looking through some of B&O's, Pioneer's, JBL's and a few other brands' vintage woofers, to try identify the one, but I can't seem to find one that matches.

have you pulled the drivers out and looked at the back of them?

It might make all the guessing a lot easier!

As written in my original post, I don't have access to them, since I've been offered them at a fairly cheap price. And the person selling them is not at all into "disassembling" them.

It looks like the left one has a missing dust dome on the woofer. Maybe he won't open them up, but have you listened to them? Have you turned them up to reasonable listening levels, not just low levels?

Yeah. One is missing the dome. :-) I haven't even gone to check them out yet. I just thought the units used in it look interesting. And was wondering, if anyone had seen them before, now that I haven't. :-)

EDIT: He lives quite far from me, but I drive around a lot, so could go pick them up at some point. Just not sure, if they're worth anything.

Too much silver and glitter has negative effect on sound
