I moved into a new house and the homeowners left two speakers on the wall in the basement. They had a very expensive setup on the main floor so I'm supposing these speakers are of high quality. They are screwed into the wall in a speaker box. There are 2 speakers on top facing outwards diagonally and one speaker which is a little larger (guessing the woofer) which is facing directly outwrads on the bottom. I unscrewed the speakers from the box and there are no labels on it to see what brand they are. Any ideas? They are in a white speaker enclosure. There are two, on opposite walls. any ideas? I'll try to borrow a digi to take pics. Thanks!

Pics, but otherwise it just depends on how they sound...

Ok. Another question... I have a receiver lying around and I wanted to hook them up. However, there are 4 leads coming from each speaker box. (4 from the one on the left wall and 4 from the one on the right wall). How would I wire them up? Is it 2 wires for the subwoofer and 1 for each speaker on top? thanks for the help.

they might be panasonic speakers, i had an older panasonic stereo and each speaker had 4 leads, 2 for highs and 2 for lows.

Ok, I got the back of the speaker box. The brand name is Atlantic. The model number is 254 SR. Are these good? Can I just power them with a receiver or should I get an amp?

Yeah, those are the speakers! Thanks for the find. Well, can I still use them with other speakers? I have no front floorstanding speakers just those. I haven't hooked them up yet, and I guess I shouldn't until I get front speakers. Can you guys suggest anything that will give great full sound but doesn't empty my wallet? Thanks a lot.

optimally you want to timbre match them with other atlantic speakers

i have paradigm speakers, they are a pretty good "bang for buck" speakers
