Would anyone know the brand speakers that these are? Nothing else to go by but these pictures to go by.

I looked at this when the OP first posted it. My first response was either an original Mission or Mirage speaker. I did some research, but didn't come up with a definitive answer, sorry!

I know I've seen this logo before, but I just can't put my finger on it for sure.

With the added pics, I'm pretty sure they are very early Mission speakers. Mission is/was well known for inverting the woofer and tweeter. My best guess anyway...

Don't know, there bi-wire, heavy cabinets as well.They sound good, definitely not a bright sounding set of speakers.They almost look like someone built them but the logo on the grills makes me think otherwise.Would be nice to know the specs also.

I got into higher end audio in the late 1980's. My first two sets of speakers were Mission speakers but on the grill and also under the grill on the front facia the work "Mission" was always spelled out. Every set of Mission speakers my dealer carried (and he still has some used ones) has no symbol but the entire word "Mission". I do agree that Mission was pretty well known for inverting the tweeter and woofer so in many regards I would tend to think they are a Mission speaker but then there is the logo issue (word vs. symbol). Can you email Mission and ask? I believe they are still making speakers.
