It just hit me the amazing similarities between the famous Bose sub/sat systems (some of their floorstanders, too) and the infamous white van speakers. Could these be classified as having similar sound qualities and construction? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Certainly the price to performance ratio must be pretty much the same between Bose and these white van speakers. Only difference being you can't talk the sales guy to let a Bose system go for $150.
