    Opinions on unknown floor speakers.

    Was looking through my MCM sales ad (Sent out a few times a month) and came across some floor standing speakers dual 8" woofers 4 1/2" mid and a 1" silk dome tweeter for $35 each, So 70 for the pair.

    MCM's website link, http://www.mcminone.com/product.asp?...7640A&info=mfr

    By searching Google for the model number (50-7640A) I found that tiger direct use to carry them, here's the link, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=1178043

    Opinions appreciated.

    hmm, looks like the classic early 90's tower, for $70 a pair? go for it!

    and if they sound like crap, you can always blast 'em at parties!! thats what these things DO!!

    Too cheap for White Van, Joe. If it were something like Theater Research, they'd be touting a suggested retail of $3,500 with a sales price of $350.

    As long as they work, for $70 I really don't see how you can go wrong. Seriously, we're talking about the equivalent of 1 tank of gas here, guys If you don't like the sound, stick 'em in your garage.

    Are you saying that they are more than just a virtual store-front?

    What? You've never heard of MCM? Where you been? I've been using them for years...since the late 80's at least.

    You are right about that. At the given price you can't go wrong. I just have a problem with something that big that costs less than what I paid for a pair of Minimus 7's.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! Two pairs of speakers for less than 1 JL sub for my car. But like I said, as long as they work...why not?
