Goodwill KLH model 4132 speakers - $4.99

I saw these 3-way speakers tonight at GW, and I figured I couldn't go wrong for $4.99 so I brought them home and hooked them up to the G-5000 with Paul McCartney's Venus and Mars, cranked it way up, and they sound pretty darn good - good enough for my work bench area for awhile. I haven't done any research - anyone looked at these Model 4132's?

The condition of the cabinets is another story - scratched to hell and with snowboarding stickers pasted everywhere. But the drivers are good, and the grill covers / cloth are good (although one is bent). It looks like these speakers have had a hard life with at least one or more teenager owners.

Here's some pictures:

Yeah, true but I probably couldn't turn around and flip a pair of Big Macs for $25 which is probably what I'll try with these bad boys this weekend.

Probably MTX. But for 5 bucks, why not.

Not exactly vintage KLH, but for $5, I'd use them in the garage to stack equipment on top of rather than on the floor.
