    My friend managed to get ($300!!!!) 2 583LR boxes, BRAND NEW floorstanding huge mains.

    Any input on the best way to sell these (obviously for him to profit) would be appreciated and for how much would be valid as well.

    He has a set of main speakers. No confusion.

    They might be good enough to replace your small alarm clock radio's speakers.

    Holy shit, he got scammed!!!!???!!

    The guy on the phone said they were Bose and such and I was optimistic when I saw them..damn man, he sold them to him at a gas station saying he had a few extra from a shipment.

    I'm not getting any results for 583LR in any way...
    link?

    Bert,

    These Scam companies are always changing thier names and
    model numbers to mimick "well known" companies. It doesn't
    matter what the model number is, the fact is that they are
    White Van Scam speakers (AudioFile is a White Van Scam Brand)
    And your friend got taken. I would say I feel sorry he got
    taken but people really should know better than this.. If
    someone approached me on the street to buy speakers I would
    never buy them I know better.

    At best they are honestly worth about $100.00 a pair I think
    that is what the White Van drivers pay wholesale for them
    from the company that markets the rubbish.

    Other Van Scam speakers are:

    Epihany
    Dogg Digital Audio
    Digital Audio Design
    Digital
    Acoustic
    ParaDyme
    Danish
    Denmark

    And I am sure 20 more I am forgetting..

    Very true it wasn't smart to buy them, but this guy told me that they were a 5.1 Bose system valued at $1200, and I wanted my friend to profit so after some questioning (and the validation by a friend who was physically there) I encouraged him to get them, afterall, at that point I was thinking he'd profit, not knowing it is the pieces of shit they are.

    Thanks

    Hey, at least he didn't pay like $1,000 for them.

    Wait, maybe he will like how they sound? [​IMG]
