Dynamic Audio Speakers

I've had a pair of these speakers for about 15yrs and they sound great.
With the right amp they will work good for you.
My brother bought them from a guy in a van and there still going.

Have a good one

Sounds like the typical speaker scam that's now on the internet along with being at your local grocery store and ATM.

I don't think I'd want to admit to actually buying speakers from a dude in a van and then keeping them 15 years to boot.

But, that's just me....

Besides, Mr. White Van speakerbuying dude has ONE post....

This is probably a scam. Ignore the CL.

Not trying to 'slam' ya.

it's just that with this being your 1st post, well, it looked fishy.

I have a friend that spent WAY too much for some white van speakers...

Yeah, very cheaply built, but didn't sound too terribly bad.

Still, there are countless old speakers that would be a better choice.

Anyway, enjoy AK.

Saw some at a garage sale. The fellow wanted $30. Not a good sign when you can lift a tower speaker easily with one hand. Did some checking just for curiosity sake. Claimed response 43 Hz to 26 Khz(with a cone tweeter?) Total cost of drivers - $24. Cabinet - very thin, vinyl-wrapped particle board. Crossover - 2 capacitors/side. Asking price? As much as the vendor is able to extract from the uninitiated.

Caveat Emptor

Dynamic Audio Pro-Poly 1901

That's too funny!!

I also bought some from a guy in a van about 17 years ago. (Not my wisest move), but it worked out okay, I still prefer to use them to listen to music (even with my 30-odd year-old yamaha receiver) over my Pioneer surround-sound system.

They can handle a lot of bass without a whimper, and sound really natural. Go figure.

Those are the typical white van speakers. Expect nothing and you'll be pleasantly surprised. If, however, you fancy any kind of fidelity, be it high or low, leave them be.
