Got them for project, but found they are great sounds.

Marsland drivers in Electrohome cabinets is my guess .

I have a pair in great condition if an enthusiast of local historic HiFi wanted them .

Marsland and Radio Speaker of Canada were the same company.
Robertson screws holding drivers in place would indicate made in Canada

Simple 3 way design, full range bass, one capacitor to mid and other capacitor to high tweeter .
I think the cabinet design is good, sounds specially great in violin and cello .

Look similar (Marsland driver complement & custom cabinet) IIRC,to speakers by brother owned in the 70s.His Stereo Voice speakers were part of a locally built speaker line and re-badged receivers sourced from (either Trio or Sansui?) sold by Toronto Hi Fi,a dealer located on Yonge St,north of College.IIRC,they were in business from the early 60s through the 70s.

"Some electronic components made by Canadian based companies used a unique Canadian manufacturer’s coding format ). Speakers, transformers, capacitors, and other components may have a manufacturing/date code in the format MCX#, where:
MC ‐ Manufacturers’ code (DG = Marsland, DW = RSC, etc.) X ‐ Month of the year (A= January, B= February,etc.) # ‐ Year of manufacture.
Note: only the last digit of the year is coded, so a “9” could mean 1959, 1969, or 1979, so it’s best to look for other component information to determine the precise year of manufacture."

I had the same speakers. I'll have to find my info I dug on them. I will say they are certainly Canadian made. The name slips me currently.
