Did I get ripped off on these speakers? Has anyone heard of them?

I feel like such an idiot, I think I might have gotten hustled yesterday. Two guys sold me home theater speakers from the back of their car. ( I know stupid me ) My eyes were bigger then my brain at the time. I forked over about 500 dollars for these speakers that No one really seems to know about. Can anyone tell me anything about them, from experience?

They didn't happen to tell ya 'We've got to get rid of these high-quality pro speakers right now...tell you what we'll do...' or something similar by chance, did they?
And we're they in a white van?

You get what you pay for, that's all I'll say.

Well, they're not Acoustic Image speakers - those are the ones from the "white van guys".

Uh oh.

Sorry to say this appears to be similar to ones in my area known as Omni Audio or Linear Phase.

Notice how there is virtually no company information on that website.

Not sure how to help you, you could try contacting the local authorities and see if they know where these people might be.

Good luck!

I'd say you won't get $500 worth of what you paid for though...

I could have learned my life lesson on 1/2 that...

For anyone interested, I am now selling my life lessons for $100 a pop. I accept all major credit card through my paypal account.

If you buy them the next time around then obviously you have money to burn, and I URGE you buy my lessons at a fraction of the retail cost.

I just learned a life lesson. "No need to paypal money for a life lesson when it is all put in front of you for free".

Sorry to hear that you got jobbed.

Thanks to those who were simpathetic. Yes I was an idiot, but thanks to those who did not rub it in.

IF IT"S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN MOST LIKELY IT IS....


I heard a hard lesson, an expensive lesson. Hope no one follows my footsteps, because there is a sucker born every minute.
