Irving "Bud" Fried was a legend in audio, and speaker design specifically.  Bud was fascinated by early 1960s studies of "non-resonant" speaker enclosures, today known as transmission-line.  The concept utilizes essential a tunnel built inside a speaker enclosure, with multiple bends, each tuned to a specific purpose -- Usually by ear.  The concept is extremely effective at lowering a system's resonant frequency  and producing surprisingly low bass from components that traditionally can't perform at those levels.   Bud utilized his designs under multiple brands, most recognizably, IMF speakers out of the UK.  

Under his own brand "Fried Electronics" Bud developed a new series of transmission-line designs.  The Model A/3 speaker is an example of a hybrid design that Bud developed to emphasize huge sound from a small enclosure. The A/3 utilizes an extra-long aperiodic rectangular port located at the bottom of the cabinet.  The port and the box volume both contribute toward robust low-end resonance and drive.  The 8" poly cone woofer uses an oversized voice coil for greater excursion and power handling.  Coupled with a 1" silk dome tweeter with low resonance, the system is extremely capable and will convince the listener that they are experiencing a speaker at least twice its size. 

This set are finished in beautiful real walnut veneer which has been reconditioned to its original beauty.
