But seriously, they do look similar to some old Technics I once owned, but not the same

They look as if they were influenced by Yamaha's NS-1000 - no idea which brand though.

I think that Audio Maniac is closer...Yamaha NS-1000X speakers are centered.

Finaly, the picture I've post must be a clone of NS-1000X (certainly home made).

I just need now to know in which country they were made (this is my goal to know it). I only know it can be either England, Poland, Germany or USSR.

It's definetely the legendary Yamaha NS1000 passive studio monitors, which uses Berylium drivers. They were made in Japan in the late 80 and early 90's and sound awesome. Last time I auditioned them was in Akihabara in 1992.

No, these aren't the Yamahas; but it definitely borrows from them I think.

Then again, these Technics ones comes closer I think (though still not the same model as there's only one port):-

I'd be inclined to go with Technics consequently. Not these ones, but the driver arrangement seems to be closer to what Technics were doing at the time for a lot of their speakers than Pioneer, Sansui or Yamaha. That said, this arrangement isn't uncommon for 1970s or 1980s 3-way speakers.

If this is some home cooked affair, then chances are you won't hear about it.

My suggestion would be to try out one of the sites that specialise in vintage speakers - AudioKarma would be a good one. Somebody on there might well know (tell you what, you think some of us are anal about this hobby...).

...it also explains the word 'enceinte' in the URL for the OP's photo. (Enceinte = pregnant).

It didn't help that the original photo (or photos) had a white bar that obscured the protrusion.
