Another Mystery Speaker

Recommended Posts

Unpacked pair of AR's after 25+ years.  Labels on back indicate they are AR 20's but the only reference I can find pertains to the Acoustic Research Connoisseur AR 20 Series but that series is two way while mine are (obviously) 3 way with 12"/6"/3" speakers with cabinets 24"h x 14"w x 12"d.  I've searched the AR website data base with no luck.  No prizes available except an 'atta-boy' or 'atta-girl' - - - -  you pick.  Many thanks for reading.   Kent

As I suspected from the first photo, this is not an Acoustic Research speaker. The name sounds like typical "white van" speakers.

Ok, many thanks for your responses.  Now I'm more confused (which is easy to do); "white van" referring to a 'knock-off' version of the real article?  As you can probably tell, I'm not an audiophile.  Appreciate your help.

It's an old scam. Someone has a load of speakers in a nondescript van with no company logo on it, claiming to have name brand speaker "leftovers." They're cheap speakers with names like "JDL," "Altek," or just about anything "Research," that are intended to fool an unsophisticated buyer into thinking they're JBL, Altec or Acoustic Research.

I wonder how those Sound Research 20 speakers would stack up with my Acoustic Response series 77 speakers?

I cannot remember where I got these critters but I'm pretty sure it wasn't out of a van.  I have a recollection it was in a dark alley.  Thanks for your help.
