The Santana Model Speakers were intended for end tables - to fit right into the living space. They are finished on all sides in American Walnut (speaker wiring is out the center back under the edge of the back). They have a faux slate top so beverages can be sat on them without damage. They were a unique design with an Altec 420A Biflex woofer with a 3rd party tweeter. The tweeters pretty much all fried and were not made by Altec. The woofer was intended as a full range (to 14KHz) even though it was a 15" speaker. Since only 1 driver of the original 4 were still functional in these when I got them, I replaced the woofers with a matched pair of Stephens TruSonics Coaxial 15" woofers with 4 inch horn tweeter and left the tweeter hole as a port. TruSonics were high quality speakers used in movie theaters in the 50s. They are heavy casting. Both woofers and tweeters are working and sound great. I added a SpeakerWorks high quality crossover to them. The grill cloth has been replaced with new cloth in black which is intended for JBL speakers to match their grill fabric in quality and breathability.

These are nominally 4 ohm speakers.
