They're Questeds.
Nice monitors. Actually marketed as near fields, even though they have the midfield vibe. Heard them once in a fine room... they were totally up to the job.

Thanks! Just visited the quested website but this particular model is not on their site. It might a discontinued model I guess.

Looks a lot like the H208 but the H208 is a little taller and is a three way and the ones in the video appear 2 way's...

Still a little confused about the model :?

I don't think they're Quested's. They look a lot like the vs2205 but are definitely different.

Sorry... Don't know the model number.
They're about 10 years old. At that time it seemed like everyone was Genelec and/or Yamaha.
It was an active model, IIRC. That area was dominated by Genelec.
So perhaps Quested didn't sell many?
They have always had a loyal national following, though.

I think you can see the Quested Logo on the front of the speaker.

What are you doing awake at 4.45 AM?

This went way OT!

So if anyone could figure out which type they are that would be most welcome.

Thanks!

They look like Quested Q205's to me... They stopped making them i believe because, the company who made the drive units ceased production of that model.

Bin that.. Ports are in the wrong place for Quested 205s
