Looks like Coral drivers? I had a pair of Isophons that had a little label like that in the box, so thats throwing me off a bit...could they be Isophons? Nice Alnico speakers anyway, sure they will sound lovely.

Also think its Coral, some did suggest Seas, but I dont think so. Will have to dig deeper.

Greetings

After some scrolling through my pics of stuff I have had, I have come across a pic of that little label inside the cabinet and can almost confirm without a doubt that these speakers were made by Supersonic in Rhodesia, and the finish on them should be a beautiful Rhodesian Teak veneer, and possibly plywood boxes. Supersonic used Isophon drivers in most of their offerings, and these are very possibly Isophon drivers, but havnt been able to confirm those driver model no. info. Nonetheless, they should have a rather rich and fat sound to them. That little label has the model number of the speaker printed on it( not clear in pic)  which may reveal more info.

Edit...in addition, somewhere on those drivers or the crossover, you may find a stamp "made in West Germany"...which is a step closer to these being Isophon drivers.
