I'm curious about Banng and Ebsen speakers.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have seen these Banng and Ebsen popping all over on craigslist and I was wondering if anyone knew anything at all about these speakers.
I tried doing my research and I saw a couple of fake looking reviews and an incomplete and crappy looking website.

Welcome to the world of the "White Van" speaker. They use names similar to well known brands in this case Bang and Olufson. Much like Kirsch is similar to Klipsch. Most scammers post on Craigslist to reach a broader audience.

Baang and Ebsen? That's funny!

Didn't Ebsen play Jed Clampett on Beverly Hillbillies? biggrin.gif

I wouldn't dismiss Banng and Ebsen so quick. They are made with real 1/8 inch plywood and assembled by midgets in Tibet. You can get a lot of different finishes as long as Home Depot carries that color of spray paint.

The speakers have "Liquid Drive" hydro-cooled tweeters and the system includes a "BT [BS? wink.gif] Technology High-Engergy Processor".

Water-cooled tweeters and the best damned Engergy processor on the market - what's not to love about B&E?! biggrin.gif

Sorry... but did you say "ANY" color Home Depot carries?????? Does it cost more for these custom finishes?

While some spray paint finishes do cost a premium, they do have free white van delivery to the closes parking lot to your house, so that should help off -set the cost.

They are "True Wobbly Boxes"...some have called them "Rickety".

Don't let the weight of the speaker fool you either.....especially when bricks and sand bags are attached to the inside of the speaker. Acoustical treatment of some sort said the shady guy in the white van.

A few weeks back I purchased a bangin and send smart theater system. I was in the market for a computer that I could use with my TV. I shopped around for a little while and I wanted something new not used. A good friend of mind bought the bangin and ebson smart theater system about a month ago and has been bragging about it ever since he bought it. I thought it was a little pricey at first but after taking it home and putting it to use and completely satisfied with this product the sound is phenomenal and quality of the picture of the TV screen is as good if not better than my old Sony.

Thanks for making a quality product
