Do a search on white van scam. Dahlton are white van speakers. $70 is a fair price but no bargain.

well if your budget is $70 what else can you do...

Personally for $70 I'd buy myself the best pair of Sennheiser headphones I could find for that amount.

you get what you pay for inam.

personally... i'd rather pay $100 on a tiny two way speaker from a respected manufacturer like wharfdale.

for $200 you can get a really good speaker.

at $70pr, you're going to get crappy sounding speakers with flimsy boxes that resonate like crazy. you'll be hearing the box more than the speakers. cabinets are the most expensive part of any speaker usually.

at that price... the drivers can't be that good either, but if "walmart grade" stereo is good enough for you... more power to you.

if you go to a REAL stereo shop and listen to real speakers (of which there are MANY cheap one that kick butt) and purchase those, you'll have a more solid investment that won't self destruct in a year.

a real well designed cheap speaker (i LOVE my $200 pr. NHT super zeros) will spoil you for hi-fi and you'll never be able to go back to cheap made in taiwan speakers ever again.

do you want speakers that LOOK expensive... or that SOUND it?

hmm...

i just looked at the pic, and from the back of the speaker, it looks like the cabinet might be 3/4" MDF which is good, but that there's only a pic of one speaker and no pics of the drivers would give me pause.

good luck with it if you do buy them and let us know if you got a bargain or shanked.

Athena B1s can be had on ebay and amazon for $100 or less. Tipped up high frequencies, but surprisingly good to my ears for the price. More bass than you would think.

NHT do have a good reputation as well.

bridging isn't something that can be done with any amp. it needs to be an amp designed with that in mind.

even if the amp is 4X 100W, 100W is alot to drive a sub unless you want to totally wreck your hearing.

i probably only use 1 watt on average with my 12" according to my amp's VU meters, but i'm not into bass.
