Hello! I got a tower speaker form my uncle and not very fimilar with audio systems, I don't know how to revive this 3 feet tower speaker.. I'll just attach the photo of the speaker.. Please help me to bring back it to live
 
Get a $15 multimeter (auto part stores, Walmart, etc), and check what is the impedance of disconnected speakers. Cut the wires between other speakers as well, and check their impedance as well. I doubt all were connected in parallel.

As for how it will sound - who knows... The enclosure does not seem to be acoustically isolated, so I would say these were PA-style speakers, not "Hi-Fi". As for amp - places like PartsExpress and Amazon sell a lot of under-$50 amps for one to play with.
 
It is quite possible that this is just a passive speaker, needing an amp, and not a power supply. Please post pictures of connections panel, and label.

Use service like imgur for posting photos. You cannot attach a photo to your post here.

Haha this might be from wwII... Just wanted to know what this thing sounds.. Between should I connect the disconnected wires from the other two speakers(marked X)?.... Any suggestions on not very expensive amp wanted to give it go
