I bought these off Craigslist and haven't been able to find out what Model they are, they have (2) 416-8A subs in each, (1) 808-8A Horn and a N501-8A X-over, the cabinets are approx. 3' Wide X 3' Deep X 5' Tall. Trying to find the Model to know how many watts they were rated to try and figure out what kind of receiver/amp would work best with them ! Any help/suggestions ?

No idea on the model. Could well be a DIY effort.

I'd expect a 15-30w tube amp would be sufficient and sound 'nice'.

I wouldn't expect a lot of very low, or very high frequencies to be present, but I'd guess
100+dB @1W kind of sensitivity.
