    WTF??? Those are not LSi's. Hell, they're not even Polk.

    Silk dome tweeters

    90db sensitivity
    8 Ohms
    That's no where near the specs of the LSi15. The guy is ripping people off!

    Thoughs look like custom jobs from hell. IMO. You know they dont weight all that much when shipping is 45 bucks for 5 speakers!

    It looks, a little, like my R40's repackage in a super crappy quasi-LSi tower.

    i emaild this guy asking him about his "polk" speakers and this is what he said:

    Scott,

    The speakers are Polk Audio speakers. They are a model they sold a couple years
    back and are manufactured by Polk's main manufacturer, "Forgings
    Industrial". The name on the speakers is "JA Audio", however.
    Because these are factory direct, they don't say Polk Audio. If I was a
    distributor for Polk, I could use their name and put Polk Audio on the
    speakers. Polk Audio orders the speakers from Forgings with specifications on
    what name to put on them. Of course, they have "Polk Audio" put on
    them. Because I am not Polk Audio, I can't legally put their name on these
    speakers. Do you see how they are Polk Audio? The name doesn't say it, but
    they are in fact Polk. I make a couple trips to Ft. Wayne every month. I
    could meet you somewhere there. Let me know.

    Take Care,

    Chris



    ant truth to this?? micah? anyone?

    Forgings Industrial,
    isnt even a company that manufacters speakers, they manufacture some metal stuff.

    Polk Audio should do something, i dont want people to get tricked and buy them and listen to them and say that they sound bad and never buy another polk product, and then they will spread the word and you could see polk going out of business.

    I am with Madmax on this one... I am sure those are Lsi15's.




    :D
    No but really, that is a load of crap, and someone is bound to be riped off by this guy. Bad news all the way around...

    I was sure that Polk did most of their stuff in house, and didnt out source for much. If this is true, than Polk wouldnt have very much to do with the speakers at all... Really doesnt sound right to me. Mike

    i ask this guy those can't be polk speakers. and this is what he replied:



    Scott

    I didn't list these speakers to start an argument. I am simply going by what
    Forgings told me. In their brochure, it plainly states that they are a major
    supplier for Polk Audio. Forgings is one of the largest audio manufacturers in
    the world. I don't think they would lie. If you want them, then great; if not
    then I'm not going to hassle you. I will sell you a set for $599.95 if you are
    interested ($499.95 if you buy 5 or more to sell). Whether they are Polk or
    not, they have the same, almost identical specs as the LSi speakers by Polk.
    Name doesn't matter, it's what is behind the name and label that counts. Lets
    say they truly aren't Polk, in a way they still are, because the materials and
    specs are the same. They sound just as good. I have heard just about
    everything, as I am involved in the Audio and Video business, and these sound
    superb. You won't find anything like these for under $3,000. I guarantee.
    Like I said, if you are still interested, great, let me know. I offer a 100%
    satisfaction guarentee.

    Take care,

    Chris


    your guess is a good as mine.

    Actually, they really don't have *anything* at all in common with the LSi line.

    I'm tempted to send a nasty email to him. heh

    C'mon Polk, do something before we do. :P

    Right, and My car isnt a 10 year old Honda, its a Rolls Royce. At least thats what the dealership told me! So, in a way I am absolutely correct, and not passing on a bunch of bull at all.

    I contacted eBay about this fraud and requested that he be shut down. They are looking into it. I also emailed Micah a copy of the ad.

    Has anyone noticed that most of the bidders have 0 feedback. If eBay doesn't shut this guy down some newbie is going to get burned.

    I noticed the same bidders with no rating jockeying for positions, with a couple of innocent bystanders in the middle....I never seen an uglier mofo set of speakers, so I guess this is the first.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.
