    I checked both the ebay listing and the manufacturer website, the only information they give about the speakers is that they are black. This deal sounds even worse than white van speakers. Based on the description the buyer could very easily end up with a pair of ultra cheap car speakers that have been mounted in shoe boxes that have been spray painted black. Hell, if people will really pay $177 + $75 shipping based on that then I need to start building and selling my own brand of speakers.........

    Here's a good thread regarding white van speakers and Theater Research speakers.

    Figure, a cheap woofer and tweeter with a simple crossover will sound 'good', but certainly not great. How will they do at loud levels, will they reproduce sound accuratly and cleanly? I bet they will be 'just OK' and thats it. You can get a pair of Athena's at Best Buy or some closeout Polk's on the internet for $150 that are absolutly great speakers for the same money, and if you blow a driver, you can get a new one.
