    Default BSI Speakers: I got an offer to be a 'white-van' guy!

    Got home late yesterday, the mail was on the counter - and I spotted a large white oversized card with an offer from BSI Loudspeakers to be a 'white-van' rep!

    The deal basically is to buy a set of their $26K speakers at a deep discount, then I can do demos-auditions for my 'audiofile friends' and for every set I can sell, I get a $2K commission!

    Whaddya think? Should I go for it???

    I don't have the white van, though All I have is a truck

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    You can corner the market. All we hear about is white van speakers but never white truck speakers.
    Sounds like the perfect opportunity!

    WOW!

    Now if the suggested retail price is $26,000, those must be some very good soundin' speakers.

    They simply could not have a suggested retail price that high if they were not worth every cent of that.

    If you get this sales postion, the moolah will just roll in and you will have the respect and admiration of ALL of your audio-FILE friends including me.

    Some guys have all the luck. It seems like these sure-fire dream jobs never land in my lap like they do for you.

    And just think about it, you only have to sell 13 sets with a commission of $2000/set to come up with the $26,000 to buy some of those speakers for yourself. If you get a secret "employee's discount" for being an employee, it would make the deal even sweeter than it already is.

    These speakers are only as good as the white van they are sold from. Check for rust, underinflated tires, or "Bum Wine" bottles rolling around on the floor. If the salesperson is in a parking lot and keeps looking over his shoulder, between stopping random people who are buying mulch at a garden center, you MUST be getting a good deal.

    Brick and mortar stores, or internet sites with their high costs, are for suckers. You on the other hand are a sophisticated consumer besides being an audio-FILE.

    Make sure the saleman (likely Vince or Rico) gives you a verbal warranty, so you know where to get parts and service in the future in the unlikely event you ever have any problems with your $26,000 speakers.

    Ugly speakers for $16,700 imo!




    From the website....Sound very shady to me!

    You cannot find this caliber of speaker for 2, 3, maybe 4 times the money. Our motto is simple: We make $60k+ speakers and sell them for $16,700. I use only the most costly European drivers in existence so you get $60,000 sound for a fraction of the price. The bottom-line: To have sound this good in your home, you'd need to spend $60,000 or more. PERIOD.
    In traditional manufacturing, they use a 5-10x retail mark-up from cost. If we sold this loudspeaker the "traditional" way, it would retail at $60k-$100k. $16,700 is LESS than what a dealer would pay! Using Lean Manufacturing and eliminating the dealer markup- you get this 100% US-made $60K speaker for just $16,700.

    Sorry man. I don't ever want to knock another dude's choice of headbuster.

    Check out the website bumwine.com where they check out and evaluate all the classics.

    Scoff all you want, but some of the best speakers I ever had came out of the back of a white van.
    Even left the van owner a note: "Hey, Dood ! Thanks for leaving your van doors unlocked !!!"

    A friend of mine received an email for Zimbabwe (sp?) looking to deposit 2,750,000 in his account. I think he did it. You want me to call and see if he wants a set. He should have loads of cash laying around by now....

    Oh cool! BSI is making speakers again?! Big Scam International is one of my favorite audio companies. Count me in! I'll have to sell my Definite Tecnoids though to make room. I can let them go for 12,500. Any takers?
