Early PA columns, from the looks of them. The metal corners are not original.

Whizzer cones are visible through the grill (could be the 22 watt versions - so power with care). In any case, they're not the classic guitar Hiwatt Fanes.

Did you already buy them or are you just considering the possibility?

So the are real Hiwatt speakers? They look a bit home made to me, I wasn't sure. They are very cheap in local and probably already gone.

thanks man!

Well, Hiwatt sold cabinets that looked similar to that. Can't tell for certain they're authentic Hiwatts from that single pic. If they can be had cheaply, might be worth investigating further.
