Its a speech synthesizer speaker box. Unless a Cricket card was made that
could be installed inside the //c (I'm not aware of such a thing although
I won't rule it out) then this box probably went with something like a //e
that did have the speech synthesizer card in it.

Er, wait a second, I'm thinking of something different. I do remember
reading articles in mid-80s Apple magazines that were advertising the
Cricket. It may very well have been for the //c.

Try posting this message on comp.sys.apple2. Somewhere there should be
able to help you more than this message.
