I saw these on Market place. Not mine so I can't speak to actual condition, but I was wondering what do they really belong with or are they just separate companion speakers for anything?

Those look like P.A. speakers for grocery stores, churches, halls, etc. It looks like they have 70 volt line transformers on them.
Pretty Lo-Fi. But gorgeous surrounds compared to the pressed wood ones I used to install.

They look very similar to the "intercom" speakers that were in classrooms in the 50's-60's.

A few lucky ones came with WE drivers. These are $10 garage sale units.
