Sorry for the late reply. I will try to get that picture.

Like I said, I don't have any lock picking tools or anything that could grind the lock off. I wouldn't trust myself with the destructive tools, haha.

At this point, I really am going to need to get the locks off, because I finally tested the radio and found that it appears to be a bad unit which I may have to replace, and I'm going to want to use the speaker, still.

I may just have to find a locksmith and try them.

You can buy an equal or better commodity-grade communications speaker for probably 1/4 of what any locksmith will charge you to open those TWO locking collars.

Or, you can probably use a common nut-splitter to just split them apart.

All sorts of ways to attack locks on YouTube. Or, just buy a speaker that will be best suited to the new job. Speaker cones are paper, paper gets old and brittle, there's limited value left in a 25? year old speaker.

i showed a locksmith a picture of lock while i was there getting a key made and he said that by the looks of the key hole that a blank key that fits would turn it off or a piece of metal that would fit in keyhole would open it up,,,

Looks like simple wafer type locks-easy to pick with a bit of patience. My guess would be pick them so the 'key' goes clockwise and that will somehow 'engage' the outside housing so you can turn it off. Either that or after the 'key' is turned the outside slides off and there something to turn. I seem to remember similar locks way back when but there were a few different types...
