The image is too dark for me to see if the elliptical unit is a twin cone, full range driver or whether that is a tweeter or a port alongside it.

Elliptical drivers make me think of Philips.

You would have to get inside if there are no other external clues.

It was EMI that I was thinking of. Well known for their elliptical drivers.

I don’t have them. I’ve just seen them pop up. I’ve messed around with the brightness on my phone:

Looks like a tweeter not a port.

Not much on the back:

Those posts do seem to look the same as the disassembled pic you attached above. You can make out the rounded square they are sat in.

Glimpse of grille fabric:

Would an EMI of that era be worth picking up? Probably an hour round trip.

The speakers you picture could well be home made.

The dome tweeter is a departure from the EMI cone tweeter which usually accompanied the elliptical mid/bass driver.

Even if the elliptical drivers are from EMI, I can't see them as being anything special - such drivers were probably made in their squillions.

Ok I will leave them then.

I still havenít been able to get the wood I need for the stands, so Iím going to go back on what I said. Iíll be writing up the thread over the next few days but hereís a picture of the finished articleÖ. More to follow. Iíll have to add the stands at some point when they are done. Not sure when that might be!

They're looking really good - as good as new in fact!

I'm a big fan of the retro look - being retro myself!

Well done.

Thank you

We love the retro look too. That grille fabric was an absolute b**** to do though. Aligning the vertical and horizontal weave whilst pulling tight, and avoiding puckering whilst stapling was probably the hardest part of the entire thing. Even the veneer issues we had! Worth it in the end though. ;-) Iíll get all the photos I took as we went along and post a new thread next week when I get a chance.

No more chocolate mousse. We varnished the yellow paper as well to preserve it.
