    Has the appearance of maybe Speakerlab or some other pre-fab kit.
    I don't recognize it and I tossed those brochures -long- ago...
    Nothing on a grille or rear panel? Drivers from Norway are maybe Seas?

    Mid driver looks to be a Precision (American Peerless, from the late '70s until late '80s) TP165F. Very common but nice driver, in its day.

    That system had to have been made in late 1983 or early 1984... the manufacturing date of the tweeter is the 16th week of 1983 (late March), the midrange, the 45th week of 1983 (mid November), and the woofer in the 37th week of 1983 (late September).

    No idea who made them... though, that looks like a Woodstyle cabinet, which means it might have been a Madisound creation...

    Regards,
    Gordon.

    wow ...you guys are good...thanx

    I looked at the madisound catalog, all their cabinets are oak like mine and drivers seem to be modernday equivalents. I think y'all nailed it.

    they were at GW with grills and drivers looking good for $10. I know they arent JBLs or even 2 steps down, but I'm a sucker for beautiful oak grained speakers.

    I'd have bought them in a New York second, for that price. Good job.

    Regards,
    Gordon.
