    Default help me identify these, please

    Looking at a pair of speakers, what I see on the back is "Olson SS 177" but I can't find any info on them. I'm assuming that they're pretty old. Each speaker has 6 drivers in it, but I do not know the details.

    PS- it also states that they are acoustic suspension speakers. I found out that Olson was the inventor of the acoustic suspension system. At least, according to one site...

    I'll try... They're not actually mine. I found them in a music room at the school where I am currently employed. They aren't hooked up, and have been serving as stands for the speakers that _are_ being used in that room for quite some time. If I find out some more info on them, I might try and aquire them for my own listening pleasure...

    I remember Olson Electronics from the 60's. Found this link:

    A few other posts at the site discuss Olson's claim to the invention of the acoustic suspension speaker... Interesting read...
