    Default Can anyone identify these speakers?

    My grandparents got me these for $2 at a church sale. They don't match, and the foam around the woofers are torn and falling apart. I was wondering if anyone could identify one or both of these. There's no name besides "SRL" on one of them, and no serial numbers. Also, if anyone knows what they are, are they worth replacing the foam to use for casual listening, or as rear speakers? Thanks.

    Based on the design, the quality of construction (from what I can see), components, etc., they are probably worth what was paid for them and any money spent would be a waste IMO.

    Sorry, man, but they don't look like they're worth even $2 and one of the tweeters appears to have been replaced with a mismatched driver, making them completely useless for any kind of real listening, as they will sound awful as a stereo pair. I wouldn't invest anything into them.

    yeah, I hooked them up as mains to see what they sounded like... which was crap. The wood looks pretty good, I may put new speakers in them someday.

    It looks to be a mismatched set of Sound Research Labs. They made speakers out of Carson, CA.

    they call those Kabuki speakers on audiokarma.
    they got a Sansui look to em, unless they sound special to your ears, probably not worth any effort. chuck em in the garage for a shop rig or something maybe

    Fun with worthless speakers!

    The song is "-38-45-(A Thievery Number)" by Thievery Corporation, which is an awesome song... on good speakers.

    I am the person holding the camera.
    That was really fun, the speaker just completely disintegrated.

    It sounded like a car with a REALLY lopey idle.

    and yet you CONTINUE?

    Wow, man, I'm really at a loss. I mean, I'm SURE that I've still got some parachute pants at home but I don't still wear them.

    I picked this nickname loooong before I had heard of the guy from the old days.
    I see no problem with it.

    Markymark is FAR from old school.

    Two, there's probably nothing wrong with the name Charles Manson but I probably wouldn't pick it for my kid.

    I'm secure... hence the reason I'm not worried about using it.
    I have yet to get upset with someone over the internet... pretty retarded if you do...
    I can take the mockery and hacking, so have fun.
