    I agree with concealer. Those speakers just look ultra cool. For 80 bucks, how bad can they be?

    I remember reading elsewhere that the drivers were impossible to repair, and there were nothing special anyway. Check out the spring clip terminals, hot!

    I remember those but a square port would scare me, Chuff Chuff.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Called APM (which I believe meant "Accurate Piston Motion"). They weren't bad (EDIT - in general; and some of them were actually pretty durn respectable).

    I had a dump-find boombox here for a while with APM drivers...

    I believe it has a honeycomb tweeter as well. They sound pretty good for the age and for $80 I'd grab them. I prefer the bookshelf version over the floorstander.

    Square drivers can sound silly sick. I heard these speakers and was amazed:

    Well, seeing as theyre gone...the same person that posted some Zebra speakers, the OLD sony's with square drivers also happens to have an old sony stereo - http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/ele/1311566678.html
    Thinking of contacting him/her and find out what else is lurking in their home and see if they have anything worthy of buying....hmmm
