As a wee bit of a Peter Gabriel fan, I stumpled across this image of the control room in his home studio from the 1980's. Are they Westlake monitors?

There's loads of neat Peter Gabriel images on Larry Fasts website here (click on each of the album images).

Well Iím no Sherlock Holmes, but the games a foot; you gave one clue (1980ís), so I assumed they where JBL and typed in JBL studio monitors 1980 and this is what I found in Google image, it looks close to the image in the picture, granted the picture is dark in the upper left corner, and its partly cropped off as well.

Now I know thereís two bass mid drivers in the picture, but the horn is the right shape, so we must be pretty close, unless someone else can chime in here?

Yep, they look like Westlake TM-1:s to me. Here's the current version (TM-3):

I was going around Google image and main Web page, and found this link, relating to the same name (Westlake TM-3).
