    Thank you, Edge, and Don. I did manage to get it out. Just needed someone stronger I guess.

    I think they are C45 S8 with an updated tweeter. You should try not to part them out. IMHO

    Hi lowhog

    My take on what you have. I don't think the cabinets are Altec. Altec did have a corner speaker (Altec 606) but looks much different. To me they look similar to the EV Aristocrat. These...

    Is this a JBL cabinet?

    Pretty sure the woofers are JBL but I don't recognize the cabs.

    Thank you, David. I'll look into that approach. See if I can find a turorial on line. I'm not good at this but I'm trying. :)

    It is a fairly small area and the largest of the blemishes.

    Yes Mech, I was told they were pulled from a dumpster, so I expect they took a licking. Not sure about movement of back plate. All I can really tell is that the magnet has shifted a bit.

    Thank you, Mech

    It doesn't look to me as if the pole piece has shifted but rather the magnet just a bit. Here are a couple more pics. I will have to see about the gap size and try to verify. I...

    Is this shifted too far?

    I have this 2214h that I was about to recone when I noticed the vent hole is off a bit. Being green at this I assumed it was shifted and needed repaired or scrapped.

    I found something today leading me to believe these cabinets have Altec 604 Hollywood drivers in them. Possibly as early as 1944 or 45.

    I think.

    My guess is late 40's to late 50's. It's likely to have a 604 duplex of some variety. I would do my best to claim them if they were available to me.
