my flatmate bought a pair of TI1250 floorstanding speakers today, against my advice ( i assumed he would get home & unwrap a box of house bricks). i thought i'd tap in the company name and check the selling price... guess what came up? he paid £120 to the same yank and londoner mentioned before. still, they seem to work ok, so what do people mean by "fake"? i'm sure the technical data is crap, but are there "real" versions of these on sale anywhere? p.s. i just entered a bid on ebay for a pink bridge, christ i hope that's real...

Well today boys and girls,we are going to learn the ART of sealling speaks and saving money.
(chapter 1)
To be a Speaker-God, one must first posesse the gift of gab. (so to say)
Ok here we go.First we have to figure out if u are Indy or Office. lets start with Indy.-NOW- We are not going to talk about what u do!We are going to talk about what your supposed to do!1st go get a minnie storage,somewere about 10 to 20 mi away from your house.(the reason a minni storage and not Bondded wharehouse) is because what if like sommeone like me came in and bought them all,then what would u do? So go get a minni storage and put 4 pallets in there(100 UNITS)pay cash-no credit! now here is the hard part _WORK_:-)
BUY your work van from one of thouse buy here pay here, they will work with u because you pay CASh and they dont give a s h i t were the van goes{just pay your bill} - why buy and not rent-$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ thats why!average rental in the states is $400.00 a week(i know i have 23 rentals right now,,,,,IT sucks $289.00 plus insurance = $9,200.00 a week} Ive learned from my mistakes just went to the car lot and bought 10 astro vans (NOT WHITE LOL) ,for what i pay in rentals i will own free and clear 10 astros in 9 mo:-) u need to do the same! 1 at a time if u have to!
Next you will need at least 1 to 2 permits in the citys around your home base(minni storage)also to get thous u need a TAX ID#(how you going to bye a house,and keep it with no W2,,,,have to pay some kind of TAX.or u wont last more than 3 years.....most if not all MANufactures REPORT YOU TO THE IRS IRS AUDITS THESE GUYS ALL DAY LONG .U THINK THERE NOT SAYING ANYTHING, LOL LOL YA RIGHT)
-------next week we talk about WHAT to do with your

I was driving to lunch today in Farmington, CT and a fast talking man in a new Blue GMC utility van pulled up beside me and said he was selling some surplus home sound systems from a delivery. The whole thing was very sketchy. The man was wearing a green Bose polo shirt and had a kid in the passenger seat with him. He insisted that these speakers were better than bose. I offered him $18 bucks for a set, which is about what they are worth. Even if you know nothing about speakers you should know enough not to make split second decisions about large sums of money for products in the back of vans. Incidently, from reading above it seems like all these guys have new GMC based vehicles. I wonder where this scam originated.

Chapter 2(what to do with your money)

Buy as much inventory as possible.Its money in the bank,just pay your taxes,keep your pitch clean,and you will be done in 8 to 10 years,never to work again.Whith my method you can retire with $3,500 a week for 24 yrs.unless u dont buy condums,then u might have to save more>?
Go into newspaper and look for the local prision sentencing report,look for guys that are in for more than 3 years and cross refrence with local property owners,when you have a match,make contact with owner and offer a $10,000 cash buy out on house. They are so in need of the money,just have them fill out quick deed.it gets a little hard at this point,so bring in a lawyer for the rest. SO look them in the eye and watch them buy. And no you dont need to spell to count or pay a lawyer money lol :-):-)

Too bad no time to find this web thread BEFORE . . .
This website seemed to be legit,
www.TRTheaterResearch.com
but phone recording sounds fake:
(949) 355-6008
Anyway, this past Friday, Sept 2, down here in West Palm Beach shopping center lot: two "delivery guys" convinced me a TR-6020 unit (speakers, no receiver) because of an "overshipment" en route to an installation job, etc. was questionable but not necessarily "stolen goods".
Also, cartons were new and sealed + a full color catalog page and an "invoice" (for three units vs the four they had in their SUV).

End of story: Spent $220 (versus the "published" $2,000+) and the speakers are fresh and new and working. Now, how can we get rid of the loud background "hummmmm" that started ...
Oh, well.

BR

PS Not to be too cynical, but keep in mind that many unethical deals are routed via "legitimate" resellers behind brick-and-mortar facades. Misdeeds are not always so black and white; other con-artists are more sophisticated than others.

I have a little different experience with this scam. I went to inquire about a sales job selling home theatre equipment. It turned out to be a bunch of guys selling speakers out of the back of their vans. They showed me the theaterresearch.com catalog. Told me I could mark them up as much as I want just bring the guys back $250 a set. They would even supply the van and of course speakers.

I can understand you "customers" reaction to this scam, but also know alot of the guys selling this stuff are scammed too. Scammed into thinking that these speakers are worth the actual price, that this low price is just the wholesale price given to the owners. I was told no different.

Needless to say the "sellers" I spoke with seemed uneducated, so I know it wouldn't occur to them to check the net for this type of thing. Most were immigrants.

good news for all u who have been scammed.
2 college kids approached me in staten island new york.i park my car in the mall they drive over to me with this great deal. they tell me the theater systems are an overstock order and their boss has know idea that he ordered too many. seeing this was a scam i told the kids id give them $300, so the one puts it in my trunk, and as soon as he closes the trunk i drove off and left them with nothing. scam the scammer if its stolen they cant tell on you. so now i have this piece of crap in my house collecting dust.

well i am a Tennessee bureau of investigation officer and today i was approached while leaving the university of memphis by a short chubby man with a goatee who was sweating profusely he then asked me if i wanted a pair of two thousand dollars speakers so i looked at the speakers in the back of a nissan quest van which was dark blue with a drive out tag . the man said he was a delivery man and the warehouse had loded two too many speakers in the delivery van and he wasnt goig to tell his boss and he said he would sell them to me for 300 dollars at this time i knew it was either stolen property or a scam (because what electronics store delivers in a van) so he followed me to my banc while on the way i called memphis police, i stalled him at the band until police arrived and we arrested him for possession of a fake ID but nothing can be done for him seling the speakers. So be aware they have made it to the south but just dont be stupid anyone who is selling 2000 dollar speakers for 300 dollars is a buy too good to be true so dont be a dumbass and contribute to the scam

Wow, I can't belive that I took it up the ?ss on this world wide scam. Nothing for nothing I know that things are crazy, but I just got the same pitch from two guys as everyone above and everyone below who will post after me. White van Plate number CMB6607. Theater innovations TI-6000T, Package looked professional with a suggested retail of 2,599.00 on the side of box. Made them open the box and everything was in it. The only thing that made me wonder was that the remote was real garbage for a 2000.00 system. I did hook it up and it really works. As far as Quility Sound, NO WAY. Once again,white van Plate number CMB6607 I told these guys that if they were scamming me that I would find them.

Well I'm another dumbass who bought these things. I live in a suburb of detroit. Same story like
everybody else two young guys in a white older suv.
Fortunately they just got me for the speakers. For the people wondering about the speakers they are complete crap. I'm going to put them out on my curb for garbage day. Hooked one up next to my 12 year old 200 dollars for a set bose speaker and I couldn't even hear the thing, i thought it was broke. Anyways I feel like a terd. I hope somebody on this board gets a hold of one of them.

yep, fort collins colorado ten minutes ago, also a Home Depot. Guys claiming they were given 2 too many speaker systems wanted to offload them to go to a strip club.

You just saved me about $600.

yea same thing with me in russell square. paid £150 for one speaker. really want to get together with all the ppl who have been scamed in england and put a stop to this. it's obviously a big operation and surely there is something we can do to raise awareness about such scam artists. bascially i just don't want it to happen to anybody else!

Yeah...I got scammed too in London....and I can't believe it happened to me, but I sympathise with all you guys...it really could happen to anyone, because I couldn't believe how stupid I was. Handed over £300 for a TI6000S. Felt physically sick when I found this forum. I'm a student too...will have to review my finances!! Jesus...what a dumbshit!! KEEP on the lookout: White van, bearded yank as mentioned previously, nice guys (all great con-men are)
Not sure about the merchandise, but the best advice is to sell it on as low as you can because it's still worth something, so long as it works, or keep it!

People, this is not a scam. MSRP is a notional number, it can be any number the manufacturer comes up with. It does not have to be based on the cost of materials. It can be based on perceived value, image, brand etc. The big manufacturers rely on that to come up with high MSRP's which you all accept, admittedly with typically higher perceived and/or intrinsic value (but they are good at making crap look good, as I have found with big name TV and monitor failing within 2 years). You have all bought items because somebody came up with a high MSRP and you got greedy, thought you were getting a great deal and purchased without checking that they are the quality or specification you expected, nothing more than that. You bought without checking cabinets, wiring, posts, drivers, auditioning sound? You bought from the back of a truck and didn't think something illegal or bad was going on? Good grief, more fool you. And anyone who buys this crap off Ebay should be shot for being an idiot; call it Darwinism.

Boy do I have a story. Live in ILL. I was driving to a gas station nearby for some batteries. Parked in-front of the gas station, got my batteries and hoped in my car. All of the sudden a blue van drives up. Growing up in a bad neighborhood usually that means trouble so I reached for my 9-mm pistol. dumb white guy looked like a hick maybee 16-20 yrs old tells me to roll down the window says "Hey im selling sound" I automatically said "NO not interested" He says "come on I will show it to U" I figuered Im parked in-front of the gas station camerea what the hey Y would they risk it so I got out. He showed me the boxes and I told them I did not have any money anyway. So they said they would follow me home cuz I wuz only like five min away. Strangely the young one insisted on riding with me probably to make shure I dont call five-O. I said no. But he insisted. So as soon as we went in the car I showed him the gun and said. "No funny business I thougt u guys were gangmembers but if your systems are legit no prob" kid was a little shaky told me to put it away that he was not lying to me. I said "U better not be" Finally we get to my house I tell him to get out with the gun in my hand and to shut the door. He did then I put the gun in my back and went in the house and took like 5 min observing waiting for them to leave I figuerd if they are scaming then they will split but they didnt so I took some quick pics of them and the van just in case then I got out with the gun still in my waist made them open the box. gave them 200 bucks they both looked mad @ me. I think I know Y. I think the system they gave me is legit it sounds great I know a little about sound one little speaker from the TI6000T is very loud and it sound very clean. I Opened one speaker and it looked good.The Speakers and the quality looked excelent. Came with instructions and everything. I think I scared the $hi% out of them so much that they gave me a real good system. So just scare them $hi%less maybee they will give you good quality. LOL Im glad I bougth it sounds great. It better not F@#$ up on me or I will post their pics. But so far so good. Like you said they are really on top of everything they carry high quality stuff just incase someone like me pops up. So be carefull cuz they might sell U $hi#. Just scare them.

Total scam. They got me this past Friday (11/4) in New Hyde Park on Long Island. Two little fa*gots in a white Ford Expedition with N.J. tags. I bought the 6000T home theater and paid $200. Plus an add'l $20 for their "beer money." I only wish I knew about this scam beforehand. I would cracked these two little bitc*es right in the mouth when they got out of their truck. Live and learn.

By the way...don't pay any attention to anyone on this string who claimes that the speakers are perfect and we're all nuts. Those posts are just people who have a vested interest in scamming more people like me. They'll have their day and I only wish I could be there when it happens.

Yeh got me in leicester , I'm not happy at all, Jeffr0 don't suppose you got their plates as the police sounded as if they'd actually do something about it when I called them. I'm real screwed over now, was relying on resale value, but now it looks like I'm gonna have to quit Uni and get a job due to lack of funds. Kinda sad that people who look for a free bit of money can actually really screw up people who are gonna make something of their lives. Ah well, I'm spreading the word to everyone I know, so hopefully if everyone else here does we should get them (not arrested, I'm thinking beaten, robbed and their wealth redistributed to the lucky guys who get em). It was the bearded american and the bald dude again as well ... these people really get around. Another note ... They called at all the Uni residences (I knew a few other people who were asked) ... so it looks like they actually target students (who have no money and can't afford the trouble) ... These guys are so wrong that to my mind (and I'm a fair man) just about anything goes for whoever gets them.

No, sorry Mikal. I'm at Gilbert Murray, really sorry that it's turned out like that, that's really sh1t. Some earlier posts in this forum have the plates, but i don't know if they changed them or anything since. It was the same guys too, same story as repeated throughout this thread. That sucks so hard. It would appear they do pick on us gullible students. I really almost said yes, until i realised that i couldn't amass that much money in such a short time.

And Lozzy, you're an idiot. He didn't know it was stolen goods. If you read up, the UK stories read that these speakers are being sold because they had '2 more than the order said, and their boss wouldn't know if these 2 were missing' or some sh1t like that. He didn't know they were stolen (if they are) at all.

Hope these tits get caught.

Cheers, Chris.

That's where I cut them off. I then proceed to tell them how, "No, you didn't get the deal of a lifetime. No, these aren't $3,000 speakers. Yes, you did get taken by a fast talking salesman."

This "scam" has been going on for many, many years. Unfortuntely, by the time most of you read this, it is already WAY TOO LATE!!!!

Just got done in Portsmouth, UK. Paid £400 for two TI-1250s. I feel like a complete moron, hear about scams all the time but would never have thought I'd be dumb enough to fall for them. Alas, I did. Same guys too by the sound of it. License plate FX53 YUO, though I expect they've changed it by now! White transit, scrawny bearded American guy, bigger bald english bloke.

My honest wish is that all victims of this atrocity get together, hunt these b*st*rds down and f*ck them up...

Otherwise my advice to anyone reading this (especially gullable students like myself) would be to look out and be wary.

The only thing you can do is learn from your mistake and relate your experience to others to keep them from falling for the same thing.

Plus, always reinforce some common sense ideas that people these days tend to forget:

1. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

2. Buy from a reputable establishment with a good history. You will know nothing about the sellers who pitch speakers out of the back of a van, so why should you give them your attention?

Education is a weapon for everything, especially avoiding scams.

As for how long this scam has been going on? It's been ongoing since the 1970s. - Reinhart

A mate of mine foolishly purchased the TI ~ 1250 speakers, and I'm testing them for him at the moment. Yeah, they seem to work but not to the level you'd expect from their $1999 RRP. The stereo image is all over the place, and the phase issues make your sinuses hurt!
Don't believe anyone who says they sound amazing!
I guess if you want something to make noise/bass for a party then they're fine and look kinda sweet to the untrained eye, but not worth anywhere near what people seem to have paid!

Hey I work and repair audio/visual equipment. I was recently called to a client's house to repair a speaker from a Theater-Innovations TI-5150 system. After inspection of the speaker which was really a tweeter that was broken and pushed into the speaker box. Anyways while inspecting the speaker set up the client was proud to tell me the system cost over 3000 and that he got a deal for 500 dollars a few months back from a friend. I was not familiar with the brand Theater-Innovations so I told this client I would get back to him after doing some research. To my surprise my Research let me to this Forum. I want to laugh but its really sad that people out there think they own 3,000 plus speaker entertainment system like my client. After breaking the bad news to my client he insisted he still wanted the tweeter replaced with original. OK MY PROBLEM NOW IS WHERE CAN I FIND A TWEETER REPLACEMENT FOR THIS GUYS SPEAKER BOX. IF ANYBODY DOES NOT WANT OR IS WILLING TO SELL A TWEETER FROM A TI-5150T SYSTEM FOR A SMALL PRICE PLEASE EMAIL ME . JOMARI1@GMAIL.COM

Dudes, we got done as well. Me and two of my uni mates were walkin up a road and sum london twat and an american twat said u wanna buy sum speakers, so thinkin we can make a profit out of it we brought two TI 1250's for £250. Were all students so tht was alot of money for all of us. Ne ways just to let you there in Bournemouth, been seen around quite a few times watch out, there in a white ford Van.

I just got scammed in a gas station in Somerville MA. Paid $220 for the TI-6000T. 2 white guys in their early thirties in a white Jeep Cherekee plate # 13AV44. I asked the guy for his phone number and he wrote it on the box. After realizing the scam (it only took 1 day to figure it out) I called this idiot, and he answered. I told him I wanted my money back and to meet me at the place where I bought it. He agreed. I will call him tomorrow to confirm...I iwl let you all know if he shows.

With regards to the uk it seems they are moving up the country- got fucked over by them today in sheffield. yank with the beard and little londoner, claim the speakers are worth $2000 each, cant believe we were duped into it.

Same white van everyones been talking about, same story about being loaded up with extra stock and having to get rid of it 'or their boss would take it'. Students again

The mother*#%kers. Had me running around like an idiot. Just called. They basically laughed. Told them I had their plate and telephone number which I will give the feds and they could care less. Told me the money had gone to the 'company' and that there was no returns. The guy said to send in the warranty. Can you believe that? I told him there was no f*#%ing company, it was all a scam. He just sid I wasnt gettin my money back and there was nothing I could do. After all this I just hope the damn thing works.

This scam has been going on in the Los Angeles area for a long time. I have been approached by these guys about 10 times since the late 1980's and they are always pushy, rude, and in a hurry.I have always got a bad vibe from them so I either left in the middle of their pitch or I was rude back to them and I never bought anything. I once went to a "Job Fair" for a high paying sales job and it was one of these companies! All of the employees looked like ex-cons. During the interview the boss had alot of cash ($5,000) on the table and another employee walked in with a bad fake crying routine and pocketed the money. The boss said "Here is your weeks pay, sorry about your grandma dying". He tried to scam us into taking the job! I got up and left along with 3 other guys and we laughed all the way out the door.

What's up everyone...great story for everyone here. My buddy got duped into buying a piar of "5000 speakers" for 500 bucks a while back in New Hampshire. Same pu$$ies out of a van and everything. Now I'm at college down south and one of my roomates buddies was talking abuot getting a similar pair of speakers for his apartment. here's the good part. 6 of us met them at a local Sheetz gas station, i'm not sure if it was the same guy, but he was a goofy white dude in a van with some ugly chick, anyway, my boy went in to say he was going to hit the atm and 5 of us poucned on this dude and pulled him out of the car and beat the SH!T OUT HIM!!!
we slammed his head against the van, and kneed him in the forhead, one of mybig irish friends must have broke his nose, there was blood everywher and all the dumb broad did was scream and say she was calling the cops
after it was over we stole some stuff out of hsi van and broke a couple of his windows
now if any of you people say this was wrong thats unfortunate, these f.uckeers got what they deserved! I hope i've brightened some of your days

Everything is a scam. There is no Theater-innovations. Its a made up company. The website is fake, the systems are fake. They say their sound systems are worth thousands, but its all junk. You are one of the lucky ones, everyone else payed way too much for whatever they bought. You see the lowlife sales weasels are the only ones selling this crap, out of their trunks.....just hope your kids dont end up doing this for a living....

A student friend of mine recently got scammed in Guildford, UK. They approached him in a local Supermarket car park, one short fat guy and an American and persuaded him that these were £2000 speakers and showed him the catalogue, claiming their boss would'nt notice because they had messed up the orders. The worst thing is he paid £600 for a pair or TI1250s, they were even "kind" enough to drive him to the cash machine and drop him back. Looks like they are targeting students, but what I'd like to know is if they work properly and if Theatre Innovations is even a legitimate company.

Thanks.

I got into those guys too. I don't know how I can be so damn stupid. I fill so angry but angry to myself. I don't know why I am writing that but I hope that somehow I will get better 'cause I gave them 750$ CAD. That definetely sucks. the things is I already have some good logitech speakers for my computer and I wanted to get home theater for my TV. I compared the quality of the logitech against the TI-6000T. The Logitech is way way better. Man I am damn stupid.

If you got ripped off you deserved to because you certainly didn't care whether you were ripping someone else off. And now you want to assault them? F-in' idiots.

Instead of warning people not to buy these speakers and 'do their research', tell them to stop being such greedy priicks.

Just got taken today on Hudson St. in Tribeca. Not here to whine; just to relate my story. Two guys in a GMC van. Told me the story about having 2 "extra" systems that didn't need to be accounted for. Showed me the catalog, etc. If I weren't in the market for surround speakers, I would have walked away immediately (work near Canal St. so I get approached about stuff like this all the time - more fool me). Haven't taken them home yet, but what it looks like is $50 boombox guts in a fancy(er) box. Speakers are cheap 2" tweeters and the "subwoofer" is an 8" paper cone. Honestly, if it actually works, I'll be overjoyed. I thought that they were certainly overpriced speakers, but might be a decent deal for a couple hundred bucks. If I do see the guys again, I wouldn't want to beat them up, but I would ask them to buy me a beer. To be angry at them is pointless; they are, as someone else said, just acting like a good portion of businesses, which aim to sell the crappiest goods at the highest price. Could've been worse - could have given them the $800 they asked - or could have gotten two boxes of bricks.

Caveat emptor.

You guys are all funny. Ther is no difference with u buying these speakers in a parking lot or a electronic store. I sold Home Audio Equipment for over 2 years at a popular electronic store and I was like the top salesman their. The only difference is the sales pitch and the location. There still speakers that youre buying, they do create sound correct rite if u like them then fine if not then oh well, its a store w/out a return policy. So just remember the best sales are impulse sales. Parking lot or not. I have to laugh cause, any other time you would try to buy something from even a popular electronic store you would try to negotiate to get the cheapest price even when u knew they cant go any lower price. So what stops you from negotiating with their (street guys) selling prices. Real stores do the same things with raising prices (MSRP equal be a notional number) and then saying that they are on sale when their really not all the time. I think that anybody that buys Bose speakers are getting ripped off big time. And I used to sell them (when I had too) I never recommended them at all. Just when I had to fill the quota at the end of the month. So to be honest go w/ the T.I. stuff they probably kickasss and will last longer (even look better) then Bose! Later and good luck.

p.s. good job guys on selling those speakers, cause it does take balls really big 1st to sell something in general. Lets alone some on the street.

The first thing that came up in google is this forum.. Thanks for the forum.. I am in Rocky Hill, CT. They are too clever and were just beside ATM center.. easy for gullible people to draw money...

Speakers sound great

This forum looks outta date but I thought I'd mention that me and a mate of mine bought a pair of these speakers before christmas from Portsmouth England and seeing that the american geezer was a bit pissed up we thought we'd try him at his own game... We said we'd nip round to the cash point to see if we had the 150 quid he was asking, in fact we just parked up round the corner for 5-10mins. When we got back he was pacing up and down and had pretty much spent the money throughout the day on booze and we sensed that he was desperate. We emptied our pockets of all the schrapnel we had and it totalled 53.28 quid. He accepted but by all means was proper pissed off!!! These speakers sound quality and for that price we feel like we done alright outta it. I mean the finish on them isn't worth the $3000 they're meant to be worth but for fifty quid for a pair I reckon we done alright.

SAME F'N STORY..lol! my brother and roomate bought a pair of T-1250 speakers for $300 today from two guys in a F-350, saying the same thing.."they had extra speakers, they needed to get rid of or boss would keep em..blah blah blah... I asked them if they got any credentials/business cards/license plate/or numbers from them and they said no...that's there own fault i guess...I Looked at their website and MSRP was what they said, but looked at ebay and saw none were really seeling except one or two for 400 to 500$ not $2000 a piece!...then found this website, and started laughing! I feel bad for my bro tho, he just got some money back from taxes and everything.. Should he keep the speakers, try to resell them or trash them and eat the cost, lol? Anyone know the real worth/quality of floor speakers like these?

Um...why doesn't he listen to the speakers for himself and make up his own mind instead of listening to us.

There is only one way to stop these guys and that is stop their customers, stop the customers you stop their money, no money no more business. The only way to do that is to let people know about this little scam. I think it would be a good idea to contact watchdog in the UK and any anti fraud organisations, even putting up leaflets up in your local newsagent would be a great help. If anyone knows any way of getting their website off search engines, it would be a good idea to try. If anyone knows anyone in the legal business maybe they could find someway to get legal action against them or at least get the police invovled. I think something has to be done, we cant just sit here and allow them to scam more people out of their hard earned cash!

You people always want something for nothing. You are spoiled brats. This is steet merchandise, flea market style without the market. The speakers do work in most cases, but they are not worth thousands like you hoped. James Brown had a song "It is what it is". If you still believe in fairy tales thats sounds like a personal problem to me.

Location Home-Depot Matteson IL
(Seems like they like the Depots?) dont we all.
Vehicle- Navy Blue Chevorlet Suburban/GMC Newer
Seller- (God will get you) three of them 2 in the front one very fast talking and one complete retard (prob from joliet)? (the driver) and one in the back-seat (he was kind of cute)The one in the back-seat If you read this E-mail zzthat@aol.com I dont bite... to hard anyway! The other two looked like they had a, no I mean (many)if not countless encounters with the ugly tree and hit every ugly branch on the way down and fell on the ugly grass and then on top of that the ugly rain poured down on them and they got ugly wet!-Im talking really ugly- anyway to start off with Its kinda our fault THEY did not approach me we went up to them! I saw the three of them with the truck open and selling another one to a worker at the home-depot thereand or a cust. but I dont know if he bought it any way we were on a misson a co-worker and I could not help but investigate. we thought they were druggies selling stolen goods to support thier addiction selling from a stolen and or thier parents SUV (me and my co-worker look for this lol)to the sellers did you find it strange we approached you? you have no idea how lucky you are. anyway So we went over thier to see what was up. well surprise they got me and a co-worker 250 dollars plus the famous "beer money" only 15$ 5 for each of them, the two needed it soo I do not feel so bad-If they are lucky and get drunk, maybe have a car-accident or trip and fall land on thier face or hind side I can not tell a difference from either one? well Lets say it will be an over all IMPROVEMENT okay back to the story at hand, ugly #one REALLY Fast talker in a big hurry he said they were delivering and had to go the boss (I imagine a very fat smelly man) would want to know were they were. THE f-ingbastard drove me to the ATM even. when we got back they gave us the two units and even opened them, What happened to hurry? anyway Its prob better that they got us and not me and my co-worker get them IT about time! lol Well on to the good-side of it I took the unit home I am now the proud owner of a Theater Innovations TI-6000t yeah that was smart Hooked it up umm that was fun to say the least, guess what It really worked! It made sound (thats what it was suppose to do right) yeah It sounded like some strange bizzare animal in heat and or being slowly tourtured by some water-head kid from Joliet lol they should consider a change in name of that town. TOLIET comes to mind.(anyway you choose the animal) Im thinking a billy goat (the kind at childrens zoo you used to visit in 4th grade the would eat your name tag and megapoop those little round things everywhere, esp funny when your trying to take a picture! thats a kodiak moment? but Im happy really I always wanted a goat! but where could I keep one but Now when ever I want to reproduce that hevenly bahhh bahhh I just turn on my new TI-6000t and tune it to 96.3 ohh yeah billy goat sounds allll night!! And as a added bonus If I want to re-create thoses small round (you know) hitting to ground all I have to do it adjust the volume! and plop plop A perfect re-creation YEA baby YEAH. and no mess amazing but wait theres more! It smells to match (yeah I wish I was kidding Im not)my friend walked in to my room and thought that some midgets dressed in ommpa lommpa duds were banging on my bed all hot and sweaty thats realling what it smells like. lysol here I come! no thats only friday night I told em and today is thursday. but my room always smells like ruff uh oh thats how I like it lol overshare GOOD anyway so this TI only added to the aroma emm .. I just wich it would eat paper well the hole in the front could prob be used as a garbage can. Great so thats what 5.1 means #1 very stylish Paper weight #2 authentic in heat touretured billy goat sound maker #3 authentic in heat touretured billy goat smelling stylish sound reproducer #4 authentic in heat billy ogat sounding stylish garbage can #5 A GREAT BIG TIME WASTER. SEE Really for the money 5 uses in one is a good deal Im sooo happy with my purchase you think Im messed up just keep reading, remeber WE went up to them with bad intentions so really it is thier lucky day lol that oght of make some of you feel better. and some of you just plain creaped out. you know you want to you cant stop OK on words all that said It certainly looks good not bad for a 250$ I once bought just one paper weight off e-bay for 150$ (quality paper wieghts do not come cheap people)esp when you want the multi-colored 3 1/2 foot okay Im done. ANYway I got a bonus, I got FIVE Plus a supersized one you know In-case a hurricane blows those pesky papers around, My new superturd smelling billy goat in heat sounding TI-6000t sub is there for me (thank godness)what would I do with out it, And as a even bigger bonus the LCD in front of the BGSBGSS is a wonderful night light filling the entire room with a mega mood blue light! oh so really its a six in one ahh WHAT A deal WHAT a deal! they should re-vise the packaging okay all-jokes aside no-hard feeling guys we were trying to get you and you got us. god works in very strange ways lol, If you do read this dont you think it was strange we went up to you? lucky you thats all Im going to say I think life is to short to worry about things like this hehe I turn ever thing in to laughter and such hint (bottom line is I gave them the money) its not like I was held at gun-point and robbed, that could be superkinky? anyway the point is this is obv a world-wide thing thousands if not more have been taken by it, and what we blame the sellers? we really should blame our-selves we were not smart enough to just say no and be on our way- and 265$ richer IM not mad because they did not flag me down nor even ask me If I was interested. ( very few things if life make me mad)opera is one of them. life is too short its a lesson well-learned and I HOPE anyone reading this will soo be educated , but hey I you are reading this how much did you spend lol. sorry I had to. PS for fun anyone know what these things really cost each? I looked it over and Im thinking 29-50 us dollars but I am prob wrong.
PS#2 two NO hard feelings serioulsy and dont go looking for revenge on these low-lifes we handle low lifes all year long. GOD will provide but if he is busy FORD can two! Ill explain latter. but If I see these guys again in the area. The two in the front will have a lovley and much needed face-lift I will donate my services ;)whats on the menu A lovely FORD emblem on their face or maybeass It would not make a diffrence remeber I cant tell one from the other!

I have 29 year old Hauffman Pilot Speakers which were bought by my father in law in 1977 off the back of a Chevy van at 50$$ for the pair ... We are now mid 2006 and the things still work!!! Boston Acoustics speakers used to be sold in Montreal, Quebec, Canada off the back of vans before they even hit the "legit" Market! Legit being in the stores ... If used properly and properly hooked up ... these things last years!!!!
people who state they've been scammed into buying "crappy" speakers should know that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is ... and that's what they are counting on ... My father-in-law regretted buying them off the back of a truck but never regretted all the use he got out of them ... 29 years later they are still going strong on my system!!!

Matt, I just got done today down the road in Portsmouth, sounds like the same guys. I guess that's £200 I won't see again. My own stupid fault I guess.

Reported it to the police, they weren't very interested.

Oh well, live and learn.

Well, 4 days on and they haven't blown up or anything. Bit pants though. My flatmate has a pair of Wharfedale speakers and the difference in sound quality is astonishing. And he only paid £70!

Saw a pair of the boxes outside a house just down the road yesterday, so I know I'm not the only one to have been done. Makes me feel a little better that I'm not the only idiot in town. I wonder if the other person knows what they've got?

I know of three people that have just recently bought the theater-innovations TI-5150T out of the back of a van in Lisbon, ct. In the Home Depot Parking lot. The $2,999 price on the box, sure makes the $300 paid for the system seem like a great deal. Anyone know how good this model actually is??? Seems like this guy goes to store where he knows he'll find someone with a truck in order to bring it home.......

I just came across this post while searching for this brand of speaker on Google. There is currently an ad on Craigslist with them listed for $900.

Little did I know it would open another can of worms. Three year ago in Schaumburg, Illinois my wife and I were leaving a shopping mall when a white Chevy can pulled up next to us and waved our window down like they were going to ask directions. They then proceeded to give us the story about how they had extra speakers in their delivery and wanted to sell them for a great price, I told them to screw off and put my window up.

We have always lived in big cities so the moment they had their first line out I assumed it was one of the many scams I have heard in the past. However at the time I thought they were stolen speakers. Now after reading this thread I can't believe I actually got approched by these scum bags! Keep your eyes open if you use Craigslist, I have seen them posted twice now.

OMIGOD!

Chelsea, MA - 2 guys, sold TI~440MR for $260.

First 2 week worked REALLY amazing - truly powerful speakers were making me totally happy. Being an old fan of all the stereo systems I felt a sound paradise in my apt. No kidding.

Then some sh*t began. The receiver started to periodically give strange sounds like "Pffffuhhhh" like if u just turned the system on. Every 10-20 seconds - again and again. I'm totally f*cked up with it. The sounds are not really loud, but nontheless unpleasant enough for disappointing me.

Generally the system works good except this sh*t with "pffffukhhh". Yet.
