1979 era Altec Lansing Three Series II speakers, fully working including treble adjuster on the back. It's a midsize speaker, technically (for the era they were made anyway) they are a 'bookshelf' speaker, measuring about 10 x 12 x 24". They are 8 Ohm and have a 10" woofer.

I tested a few receivers with these and really like the sound, especially for rock music. The highs are really clear and they have good bass. I took the woofers out to spray the scratchy tweeter potentiometers and noted the cabinets are made from solid wood and not chipboard or plywood. The potentiometers work as they should and the tweeters can be tuned from almost off to very bright.

Cosmetics are pretty good with some typical wear. Comes with black grills, but I like how they look without them.

Great speaker for $100.
