    i feel very very bad fior my friend right now

    a friend of mine just fell for the theater research tr1400 speaker scam. he called me up hella excited tellin me he bought 2,000 dollar speakers for 140 bucks. he said some guys waved him down and asked him if he wanted to buy some extra speakers they had that had been overstocked. i am talking to him over msn messenger right now and just broke the news to him. at first he didnt beleive me and thought i was jealous, but now he has realized he got scammed. i hope lots of people read this and dont fall for what he did. i typed this in google and the whole first page was threads in different forums about people who got scammed. the lesson of today i guess is dont buy speakers out of the back of some guys van.

    Two guys asked me if i wanted to buy a couple speakers a few months back in a mcdonalds parking lot.

    I just walked away, i figured they were stolen.

    What's the deal? Never heard of this one.

    same thing happened to a guy I used to work with, except there was only 1 speaker tower in his, not two. (heyman421) Its people who travel around telling people they have some extra speakers that are worth a whole lot, and they sell em really cheap. And they just turn out to be some cheap cheap speakers

    I love how they made a website just to post high prices to make them seem real.

    It's actually clever, aren't there laws against that somehow?

    Add and equalizer and you can polish the sound of cheap speakers.
    If you want a challenge, re-engineer the crossover too.
