Found in my parent's basement, apparently my grandfather bought four of them as a quad system in the 70's along with a Pioneer QX-747.

Thought CAM might have fun with these, no markings other than Seas midrange / bass drivers...

They are not A40XLspeakers. Wrong tweeter.They may be A35's but it would depend on the size.

Neither.

I am betting on a kit. Perhaps, authorized through Dynaco.

I agree, the same woofer and very similar tweeter as what you would see on a 40XL - but, no painted fascia, unlabelled (wrong binding posts), and (unless re-grilled) no way they cut and stapled them like that. That fabric is not factory.

It would be interesting to see the dimensions.

they remind me of the RSC (Radio Speakers of Canada) speakers I owned 50 years ago.
Made in Toronto!

They came pre-assembled as far as I know - the information in that link regarding Laboratory Monitor and Kingsbridge Electronics probably comes close as I believe they were Canadian made and the purchase was based on Consumer Reviews research

What dimensions are you looking for?

And need to consider all the Dynaco clones

Do you know if they were rated in Consumer Reviews or any similar publication?

That bit of info is almost all I have to go off of as both grandparents have long since passed away

I don't know about Consumer Reviews. Perhaps they have a digital archive?
I just recall a system my Dad got for me when I was in grade 7 or so. We were in a fairly small city and one of the few stereo shops was owned by a German fellow.
He put together a PE (Perpetuum Ebner) table with a Telefunken receiver and the RSC speakers.
It was a long time ago but looking at the grille, fibreboard baffle and back as well as the binding posts just tweaked the memory.
I could be completely off base...

By looking at the way those (Robertson...Cdn) screws pattern is I would say the were from a kit. A factory would have likely put all the screws in.

I think you miss the part about it being purchased in the 1970s...would be cool if they were Norwegian though!

Could have very well been a kit - would a dealer assemble these?

I don't think they put these together I'm quite sure they were purchased all in one piece...
