Have you ever noticed how common it is to see in speaker reviews (magazine or online) "you'd have to spend at least twice the cost to get similar performance" or "competes with speakers costing up to 3 times the price," etc, etc. ??? I started to wonder if so many speakers perform above their cost, then what are the speakers with lower bang for your buck? Clearly not every brand can perform many times above its cost from a logical standpoint. First, Bose is off limits; everyone here should know they are the undefeated champions of terrible price/performance. No one else even comes close. Inevitably, people will be offended if they own a particular brand that someone else says is not so great price/performance wise, so let's keep things civil. That being said, let's hear it! What are some brands you think have average or not so great price/performance? EDIT: Let's split it up between Internet brands and traditional brands? (DavidGold makes an excellent point). i.e. What are the lesser bang/buck Internet performers? What are the lesser bang/buck traditionally distributed performers?
