Further information:

I bought the speakers just before the beginning of the plague last year from Old Bloke and shipped them to WA . 
they might have been custom made for JB ( John Barbuto) by JBL in the late 70ies. The cabinets are walnut veneered and up to 60 mm thick which contributes to their immense weight of approximately 150 kg each. The built quality is way beyond any usual commercial product.
the drivers are:

2215 15” woofers

2420 compression drivers

2309 horns with 2327 adapter and 2310 lens and

2405 slot tweeters.

all drivers are alnico. 
Dimensions are 58 cm deep, 73 cm wide and 118 cm high.

Despite the physical appearance they play very civilised with loads of details and impressive room even in my way too small room with 20 quality valve watts. Especially at low volumes you will get a very satisfying complete sound. You can also crank them off course until the doctor comes but there is a limit for my room , it just gets a bit overload with bass at higher levels. 
this and the size are the reasons why I’m looking for something else.

They work well with valves but should also with good SS amps. The previous owner used Metaxas amplification. 
Old Bloke gave them a nice Schellack treatment before they came to me so they are looking good if you like the look of big proper speakers. I kept the protective grill over the woofers for the occasional dancing kid in my music room but they would certainly look better without.

I thought of getting an autoformer network for them from Werner Jagusch which should bring them even further but I decided for a smaller solution.

I have spoken to JB himself about these speakers. The drivers were chosen by him and were custom made to his specs at a time where he was making speakers for his own business, JB Hifi. So, custom made by JBL they were not. 
Great looking speakers! 
Good luck with the sale.

Wow. These were made by the person who started JB Hifi. Interesting

Thanks for clarifying the story, I wasn’t sure.

They are definitely extremely well made in a cost no object fashion. Unlike some “high end” products with obscene price tags, it pays in this case.

Needless to say, the price is negotiable

      Exceptional sounding Dennis Had headphone amplifier that can also be used as a preamp. 
      upgraded version with Lundahl transformers. 
      220v version 
      Uses 2x6sn7 and 5y3 s rectifier. 
      tube rollers dream. 
      Dennis had founded CARY audio. 
      The inspire brand is his “retirement project”. 
      he makes these by hand, himself. 
      The amp has no marks chips scratches etc and operates perfectly. 
      Just not getting used so time to move it on before I change my mind. 
      It’s too good to just sit in its box. 
      I bought this new in 2018 and have used it for approximately 100 hours so very close to new. 
      Still have sturdy original box and all wrapping etc.
      didn’t come with a manual. 
      RRP is $1949 US, so approx $2560 Australian dollars, plus import fees to buy this new from moon audio in the US.
