    Can anyone help me identify these speakers? They are out of a Twin Reverb I picked up a couple weeks ago. I can't find any markings on them at all.

    Look like the old Radio Shack speakers from the 70s. Made by Utah. The stickers are gone.

    Thanks to both of you. I was leaning Utah, but wasn't totally sure. At least one of them is blown, so I think I'm just going to replace with something new.

    They look a bit like some Pyle PA speakers I've seen. ... but with dust caps.

    I found some mid 60's Utah pics with that type of frame, a bit unusual for Utah, but yeah, probably what they are. The Pyles have 6 "cutouts" in the frame and yours have only 4.

    My 76 Twin Reverb came with a pair of Radio Shack Utahs, painted orange and look like 70s JBL D120Fs. The codes are printed on the frame easy to see. I was surprised I even liked them, but I prefer them to anything I've tried in my TRs, including JBLs.
    I'm not home now but if I think about when I get there I'll snap a picture.
