Two Part Question here

I found these Vintage Magnavox Omnidirectional Speakers on Craig's list and had never seen this model before. I then search online for several hours and still could find them. If anyone has any info on them, that would be awesome

Second question:

I am planning on refurbishing the cabinets and change the set up of the speakers.

I am leaving the 12" emersion speaker and changing out the horn. I will be replacing the horn with a 3-way 6 and half inch round. I also plan on bypassing the passive crossover and installing a active cross-over, turn the speakers into a bi-amp setup. Last, I want to replace the fiberglass, not that it is in bad shape, but because it has an smell to it after all these years. Would you recommend poly, fiberglass insulation, dynamat?

what 3-way 6 inch driver are you thinking of replacing the horn with?
is the distance from source to deflection cone not going to change?
i can see using a newer 90x90 horn and the active/biamp upgrade but if the driver your planning to use is open backed unlike the horn which is closed is that not going to lead to the bass driver pressure modulating your new open backed driver's midrange?(or act like an improperly tuned drone cone)
