No idea what it is, it sounds half decent though. Just curious what it's original intended purpose would have been.

Magnet: 041-017

Cone: RS-1051A ...probably a re-cone?

I hope RS isn't radio shack but I suspect it might be :|

If you can get the speaker out of the cabinet, usually the speaker code is on the basket rim:

If 041-017 is the EIA code, 041 is Merrimack Magnetics of Lowell, MA, and 017 is date of manufacture, first week of 19?7.

I searched but couldn't find an EIA listing that had 041. Thank you very much!
