    Local on Craigs, think the neighbors would mind?

    These are truly monsterous! Is this a joke or something legit?









    "These were the personal speakers built by Greybeard. He called them Darth and Vader. Greybeard was a speaker designer from Portland, Oregon. I purchased these speakers directly from his wife after his death. If you want some serious speakers, these are them."

    So, what's the story? Marching monoliths or somebodie's idea of a joke?

    They look "legit", obviously DIY. As a musician Worf, they shouldn't look too unlike something we plug into. I'm just wondering what would be required to power them? Also, do they come with the forklift?

    Seemed plausible until I read 'Greybeard' then 'Darth' and 'Vader'
    Could be real, but it's not like I would ever care to have them in my house, lol.

    Great for poolside listening. No, your neighbors will not mind. Just turn it up a little so that they can listen too.

    If you can hear the neighbors complain it is time for more volume.
