KINETIC LOUD SPEAKER ka-6100

Hey what's up every one... So I was driving up to walgreens to go buy a pack of gum and these two guys drive up to me and are acting really weird and start talking about there company giving them an extra home theater set and there talking to me and trying to make me buy it and everything they said sounded legit they even pulled out a magizine and pointed out there speakers and msrp was about 2000$$$$ so I was like I only have 100$ am broke and they wanted a 150 and I brought them down to 120 and they were still asking me for a little more cash... So me like a dumbass was excited even though I didn't know the brand and thought I got lucky so when I checked it out on google there selling like hotcakes for about 200-1000 bucks and I haven't even tried them out just opened the box to make sure they were there has any body heard of anything like this cause I haven't and I think I got screwd!!!!!!!

Btw sorry for the sloppiness using iPhone

its weird, it seems these speakers range from $200 to $2000 on the web. I think if they are real and not broken (by not broken, I mean you have to play them) you might not be in too bad of a shape, im almost 100% sure they are stolen tho, you are technically in possession of stolen goods, which is a felony in California.

good luck there bud.

dude don't even trip, if they are not broken, you can always off load them on Ebay, Im pretty sure you can at least get your $ back if not make some. $120 is not that bad bro. But wait a bit if you gona sell them tho, because if they are stolen, the owner will be looking for them on Ebay and CS, and there isn't that much ka-6100 on there, thats why those dude rather sell them on the street. There is a 5.1 6100 for $275 used on Ebay right now, so you are looking decent.

The system is not stolen. This scam has been going on for years.

A super shitty system made in China for a hundred bucks marketed to suckers across the world for an "unbelievable" price.

Throw it away and start over.

BTW, I happen to have a left over 3000 watt system here for 90% off if you want it....
