    Can anyone help me identify these speakers?

    They look like Oxfords to me but I'm not sure. The only codes I can see on the larger speakers are the numbers 2676

    A friend has offered to let me pull them from an old console stereo they have.

    I'm curious if the smaller drivers are ceramic or alNiCo. I'm guessing they are ceramic.

    I just got the photos and without a good sense of scale I'm not even sure what size the speakers are yet.

    I also notice a tube poking up, so I will ask about also pulling the chassis or at least any usable tubes.

    I will try remember to post better picks once I get them out into the daylight.

    Try refreshing. I had problems with it but thought I had fixed it. I never did get it working on the gear page, but I edited it here.

    Nothing at all around the back of the speaker's frame edge? usually there are number/letter codes there....

    Once I have them in hand I will be able to check them out better. These photos are all I have access to at the moment.

    Hmmmm. Tuff to see. Could be a little tiny ceramic.

    My guess is it's ceramic. I've seen little "button" ceramic 4" speakers that look like this. I have a couple of alNiCo 4" from another console and they have the familiar "horse shoe" housing.

    Oxford or Quam would be my guess.

    Thanks for the feedback. The small one is definately Oxford.

    I finally got the speakers out, and they are Oxfords all around.
