I've been looking for some speakers in my area. I came across these on craigslist. Never seen speakers like these before. The ad says they don't know much about them and that they just upgraded to a smaller system. Thank you for your help.

The answer to your question or at least big hints are here:



And as you can see, you gave us a blurred mess.

Frustrated.

Other than that it appears to be a speaker with aluminum diaphragms for both low and high frquencies which might seem impressive, but generally don't give the best results.

The rear plate obviously has a model name on it.

Contact the seller and ask him for that information or a close-up photo of that plate.

I tried to zoom picture but no matter what I do I can't get it clear enough to read. Sorry for the bad pics. They made me frustrated also. The seller isn't getting back to me at least not for now.
Never seen diaphragms made out of aluminum before. It makes me wonder how much more I don't know. Thank you for the help.

I'm thinking White Van speakers as well. White Van speakers tend to look really cool, but when it comes to performance they fail miserably. Reminds me if an old girlfriend i once had... but that's a story for a different type of forum all together. hahaha! Could you put up the link to the original craigslist post? I love messing with those guys.

They're "Digital Audio" white van speakers!

Flag the posts and stay away.

Yes, the new DA2013 model has an MSPR of $1 billion, but if you buy this pair today out of the back of my van, I can give them to you for a special one-time-only price of $399!! wink.gif
