I think the company is called VR1 and they have a set of Ribbon Tweeters for $49. I was just wondering if anyone has ever used them and if so are they any good? Also I dont know about your guys walmarts but ours just upgraded its Car Audio section with a ton of NEW stuff... They even have Component sets now..

A guy at work bought one of the amps and had me put it in. That thing still works!...lol Almost 2 yrs now.

About the only experience with that stuff I've had anyway.

They are made by roadmaster so I'm sure they are not the best.

Try ithem out and see how they perform. If you don't like them you can always return them. As long as you pay cash you'll be able to get your money back or at worst a gift card for the amount you paid.

Those movies were NOT bad.

These tweeters, on the other hand, probably ARE.

I got my front speakers and my Monster speaker wire at walmart so they do have some decent things there at a pretty good price... They should have a new class in DB Drag.. Walmart Street Class... See who can get the loudest off of stuff only bought from walmart...

To bad walmart wont host some stereo Comps at there stores.. I remember a few years back when circuit city did that and a ton of people always showed for those events.. If walmart would do it I think it would help bring back the intrest in car audio.. I mean you got to admit that year after year there are fewer and fewer comps around... Just my opinion

Im pretty sure I didnt say I wanted to buy these tweeters.. Im asking if anyone has seen or used them...


A couple years ago I could of swore I saw a 12" Lightning Audio sub at walmart and im pretty sure it was there top of the line sub... Did anyone else ever see that sub at your local walmart? Its the sub that uses the 3hp motor... i think

Anything from walmart is good.. even great!! Buy their whole stock of car audio and sell it on ebay, you can make a killing because people are paying for the name "Roadmaster."

I've used a lot of different Wal-Mart car audio products in my cars....I have even used some in my CRX...if you know what to buy you can get some pretty good items....plus having a 10% workers discount can be a plus ;)

The lightning from walmart is not the 3hp lightning sub, not even close. It was a 300/400 rms in 10/12 very nice cheap sub. My friend had 2 12's sealed, not the greatest SQ by far, but would outwang 2 PR-12's sealed anyday off the same amp.
I have used those older VR3 amps for midbass channels only, I did like them for a low power kit. Very clean sound, with no whine or thump. I have seen those ribbon tweets, my walmart audio worshipping nephew just bought a pair and is gonna hook em up. I aint seen em, but he claims he gonna run em on his 250.4 Directed with his other components..........
