    That was sold as an empty piece of furniture. There could have been a JBL SA600 integrated amp or almost any brand of audio gear in there.

    Interesting find.

    Looking at the photograph, the connections are exactly like what is shown in the schematic. A photograph of the woofer would be helpful. Does it have spade lugs or does it have spring terminals?
