Default May be a long shot identifying a speaker

Hello all,

I have been looking for a pair of speakers I saw at a friend of a friends apartment back in the early 80's. I don't recall the brand, but they were high end and the owner was a Marine stationed at an embassy somewhere in Japan? and purchased them at the PX or a local business.

They where about 4.5 or 5 feet tall pyramid shape dark wood or plastic cabinets topped with a plasma tweeter in a clear plastic or Plexiglas enclosure that was shaped to complete the pyramid.

My memory may be a bit off but the uniqueness in shape and design is hard not to remember. Surely someone in this group may recall something similar to my description. If this sounds even slightly familiar I would be grateful for a brand name and or model, pictures or whatever you may recall.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

The Magnat Magnasphere Beta looks right going by overall shape, but no acrylic pyramid on top. And while Magnat made a plasma tweeter, it doesn't look like these used one.
