The first thing I think of when I see them is white vans.

The specifications seem like they were written by someone who really didn't know anything about speakers. Also, the crossover points seem a little weird.

All I saw was a clearance sale page.

WWMTTM..... well that just gives it away! With two tweeters there will be some serious lobing issues, especially when they're that far apart!

Default Garbage

There is at least one other thread here that discussed speakers like this. There is a link where the speakers were disassembled. 1/2" cheap horrible chipboard. Nothing in the cabinets to keep you from traveling to resonance hell. The most worthless drivers and simple xo's inside.

The frequency response curve looked like a blueprint for an exciting rollercoaster. The impedance curve seemed geared to make your amp go into spasms.

These speakers are a scam. They are the garbage.

If you're still interested in buying them, please email me about some moist land I have available in various swamps.

One of the other models has a side firing woofer going up to 1,000 Hz - sounds like white van engineering to me.
