Anybody familiar with this model of speaker? Two ways.
I have heard of Canton before, I believe they made some decent stuff in the past.
Was Canton affiliated with Braun or ADS....?
They have an odd size (IMO) driver...9”. They are pin cushion style frames reminiscent of Advent drivers.
I cannot seem to find out anything in English. Saw a few ads across the pond...but none in a language I understood.
I will try to post some pics tomorrow.

Canton Xi 270 speakers,
Impedence 4...8ohm,
Din power 60 watts,
music power handling 90 watts,
frequency range 32...25000hz
made in West Germany.
17 1/4"H x 11"W x 10 1/4"D.

Not sure if they are worth saving or not ...oh well, they “work” but need refoaming...which I just ordered online so I guess it point of no return.
They look interesting enough even in their current sad state, complete with metal grilles and badges. They might be a perfect upgrade for my garage.

Link to an ad I found online of the same model.

Also noticed the magnet on drivers are not as big as I thought.
Does that automatically mean lower performance expectations?
