    I have four round Altec Lansing speakers about 40 pounds each *brain glitch* can someone identify them?

    Ahh yes. A round driver. Really narrows it down. You're going to have to take a picture, there's just a few round Altec Lansing speakers.

    Well, Altec Lansing, round drivers, 40 pounds, and there are 4 of them.

    The answer is pretty obvious:

    These were purchased by Patrick Gallagher on June 17th, 1968, at O'Reilly Sound Solutions at 354 Weaver Street, Topeka, Kansas for $24.99 each when he was working for Tri-County Plumbing as a pipe-fitter for $2.40/hour.

    They changed hands 3 times in the 1970s/80s and finally made their way to Boise, Idaho, where they were installed in the dancehall of The League of Ambiguous Carnivore Vegans.

    They stayed there until 2003, when they were sold on eBay to eBay username "Festus_Was_My_Favorite_Deputy" for $30 + shipping.

    They disappeared for another 18 years until they were traded to a "htims" for said decoder ring mentioned above.

    It's no wonder you guys never made it to Detective status.

    yeah, @htims a photo would be great -- if you're actually asking a serious question.
    Heck, I am a pretty committed Altec fanboy, and I've got no clue based on the thread title.

    I will say that 40 lb Altec drivers probably puts one in pretty interesting territory (about the weight of a 604 Duplex) -- but Altec also made PA/sound reinforcement drivers that, while very good for what they were, ain't hifi drivers per se. Interestingly, many of them can (or at least could) be reconed into hifi drivers (i.e., savvy Altec fans could sometimes save some $$$ with careful buying and someone's sweat equity), but those days are pretty much gone.
