This. And the fact that search engine results for the products are all scam related.

I decided I would spend the 2 minutes of my life and actually read something in the search results, and yes, it is a scam.

See:

They even refer to that company by name in there.

See: White van speaker scam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They even refer to that company by name in there.
i didnt read the wikipedia (thanks for postin it) but i did read a bunch of forums and ppl were talking about buying them out of vans and suvs. i thought davinci was a real brand because a friend at work had heard of them and the had a web sight(not real good when it comes to electronics). so when i read about ppl buying them out of vans i thought they were talking about knock offs.

The products are real in that type of sales, they're worth about 75-100$. That's why, when you see them driving in parking lots (they are everywhere here lol), they are willing to drop their "2000$" down to 100-150$ very easily.

I bought a theater research tuner subwoofer and speakers set from a guy who paid 200$ for his, gave him 20$ and it sounds very good if you don't blast it. The tuner itself is cheap , but the speakers are solid metal (surprisingly good quality), with a remote.

It's going to make an awesome sound system for the garage.


Yours seem to be only speakers though.
