Default Vintage speaker ID/info please?

Hi guys,

I'm almost finished an enjoyable modifying of a cheap sony speaker and am thinking maybe I'll tackle another?

I've spotted this interesting looking guy not too far away from me but cannot get any more info about it?

Stereo Speakers | Speakers | Gumtree Australia Joondalup Area - Greenwood | 1216048381

Any ideas?

Just a bit more info for those of you not crazy about clicking on links,

They're apparently Yamaha NB-304 and I asked her to check.

If all the drivers are functional and the boxes decent, I'd go for 'em

Model number doesn't show up anywhere, nor does NS-304.

Also tried doing a search and found nothing. Yamaha typically used driver with white dust caps and hifiengine search also drew a blank. However JBL did use white drivers with black dust caps.

Any chance you can get a pic of the rear with any label info?

I asked the seller but she said the back label was too small for her to get a good picture of?
I've messaged her and said I can come up today. It's a bit of a drive for me but maybe worth a look?

$50- for the pair?
I'd take a chance on the woofers value alone.
The mid and tweeters are probably simple sealed back units tho but if the mid has the black plastic cylinder behind it as per Foster/Fostex/Coral mids worth buying just for the mids

Well that's exciting about the mids. I was eyeing up that enclosure too, decent amount of volume.

I messaged her last night, just hoping nobody beats me to the punch. Stuff like this is usually ridiculously overpriced in isolated Perth.
