Hi all,

I found these old speakers in my basement. They are Philips magnavox, but I'm having trouble finding the exact model to see if they're any good or if there's anything I can learn about them.

If they are decent speakers, I would love to use them as studio monitors for recording.

If that is the case, could anybody recommend to me the best way to power them? They do not have jacks or anything, just the red and black wires coming out. I have no idea what the wattage on them is.

Thanks!

EDIT: FYI- image quality was degraded in upload. If you cant read the back it says,

I figured that was case..

What would be a good product to power them with thats nice and cheap and easy to hook them up to. Just to put them to use for something like home listening

Just check ebay for a hifi amplifier and watch for a while. Hifi amps go for a song, used. I picked up a brutal old Kenwood for $70 not long ago. One from the era when they were just experimenting with the surround sound idea. That doesn't work very well but all that crap can be bypassed, giving me a straight stereo amp. It's a beast, I keep blowing speakers because it is so powerful. Done two 100W drivers now. I need to go bigger. $70!
Ebay is your friend.
