I recently inherited some speakers and I don't know a lot about them. I know they are from the 70s, somewhere in there, and their brand. I have done some searching around but that hasn't really helped me learn more about them. I'm not totally interested in keeping them either, would anyone know how or where I could value these?

Here is an album of pictures of the speakers if anyone can tell me more about them from there
.
Also, if this is not the correct place to ask this please let me know.

The air motion tweeters are the unusual part of these speakers - as you know just by looking at them. Totally different from anything else visually. Their value? A search on ebay should give you some idea of their value. Depending on condition - and after a quick visit to ebay I'd say anywhere from $250-400.

I had a pair of their smaller brothers in the late 70's.  I discovered I like a larger more impactful sound than bookshelf sized speakers but, I had to admit they had a very open/airy sound about them.

 

Unfortunately, they were later stolen....so I don't know what the end of their story (with me) might have been.
