Hi everyone, looking to see if anyone can help me find some details about this speaker? On the back there is a label that says "pi by AR" model 4? Any details on specifications, sound quality, amp pairing would be much appreciated.

You might have found the same searching online. http://www.aphenos.net/electronics/speakers/klh/all_ar.htm

But I don't see any mention of what you have. Curious what, "made in eec" means.

We didn't make those and I'm not familiar with them. We've had the federally registered trademark for both the "π" symbol and "pi" word mark in Class 9 for several years. We first used in commerce in 1979. So since then, there has only been one legitimate brand of "Pi Speakers" that is recognized.

That said, some manufacturers use the mark without knowing. I've had to police the mark several times since the 1970s. Usually, they immediately stop production and change their brand name to prevent name confusion. But not always, as this example shows.

Thank you all for your responses. I managed to find someone who owned a pair in the past on the classic speaker forum. It seems they are a decent set of speakers. I'll probably spend some time and money refoaming them and see how they sound. Thanks!

From my research the EEC means "European Economic Community" which was formed around 1957. It was sort of the precursor to the EU, and it was folded into the EU when it was formed in 1993.
