    Would you describe the woofs as "back ported? <G>

    PS - my imagination, or do those bad boys have wheels on em?

    It says "built in the 70s" - must be for the rock 'n ROLL

    They might have wheels but it is hard to tell. I have never seen anything like this before.

    Looks like a handyman attempt at a dbx Soundfield, or an Ohm Walsh omni.

    They are Electrostatic Research ER 139's

    They should look like this.

    More fully restored, but you have to find someone that knows about them.

    Arthur JansZen designed the tweeters, the tweeters later were used in Dennesen speakers.

    I bought these Dennesens new back in 1977

    I think that is a port made of white PVC pipe.

    It is an outlet for the power cord. Electrostatic tweeters would need to be lugged in

    Todd is correct, this is not a ported speaker.

    I also have a pair of the Cosmostatics... The ER 139's are not on wheels.

    $50 a speaker, no way that's to much to pay for any speaker...:no:

    Kidding, they are rare speakers, so what do you think? even if you didn't need them one pair is worth more than the asking price.

    Here is some current speakers with the 360 sound design.

    Even if you don't buy them, it might be worth your time to go talk to the guy. He did state he has other stuff available.
    I would buy them for no other reason than they are unique.
