a family member has these speakers sitting in a dining room not hooked up to anything. he says they still work great. but he cannot remember the model. hopefully someone will recognize. all i know is that they are Altec speakers

They look vaguely like a pair of Altecs a friend of mine had years ago big as a car and built out of real wood - Barcelona or some damn name like that. Many of the old Altec Lansing speakers can fetch a pretty good price from the right collector/restorer.
The 10" and 12" woofer with a horn was common - not sure whats in those but they look to be quite large - another hallmark of Altec Lansing.

Wow, a VOTT with a grille. Magnificent.

Seems the A7-500 (noted for the 500 Hz crossover) was called the Magnificent when sold with a nice cabinet and grille.
