    Show the name of the speakers on video. Bring one of those you have hooked up on the wall to see if it's actually Paramax brand. I bet it isn't and you just hooked up Panasonic speakers on the walls and passing them off as Paramax.

    This is a system you get your 10 yr old when they want a stereo for their room for under $50.  But then again you don't want to hear their music sop just get them a Bluetooth speaker.

    For those who grew up in the ghetto this is a good speaker system. Cheap, plastic crap like this you can buy at Walmart for $100. I am educated and I know good audio and that's why I prefer my PSB speakers for $800 and my NAD amplifier for $630.

    If you paid 150, just about OK. 100 would've given some peace of mind, although it is still a basket case.

    Your lucky, I was sold the same system in a BJs parking lot for $400 but they came to my house and tested/ installed it to my ps3 system and tv. I personally believe this sound is good, I can hear the footsteps of enemys when playing call of duty which I couldn't hear before. It also has a built in FM radio which is a big plus as well as a separate mp3 hookup.

    People who think this crap sounds 'amazing' and 'kick ass' simply do not know good sound and have never heard a real sound system. My mates come round my house and hear my Genelec 8030's and are blown away by them coz they've never heard pro speakers before. If you want quality you got to pay big bucks. In the UK we have 'Trading Standards' run by the Government. Companies like this don't last long, Paramax would have been shut down and the CEO of the company sent to jail and slapped with a massive fine.

    They are ok. Defiantly not high end. Is it worth $2,000? No. Is it worth $150, well not really, though if you like the way it sounds it is ok. You see, that website claims like 3,000Watts, it is only about 400Watts MAX. So yea, it is a scam, but if you are happy with it, good, it will be ok for what it is.

    Hmmmm, I had the same thing happen to me about 3 years ago. But for I figured out how to hook my system up. And trust me it works like a effing charm. I hook it up to my Blu-ray, dvd player, play my IPOD/MP3. I'm good. But mines is all blk. Nor did the guys I bought mine from gave me a cock and bull story. Anything bought out of back of a truck isn't worth much…duh!

    They might be worth 50. No joke. I've heard that exact model in person. Sorry to say you got ripped off. Consider it a 150 dollar lesson. A friend of mine paid 250, he instantly knew what was up when there was no way to hook up the hdmi and just gave it to his kids. Take the speaker apart to find a piece of concrete glued to the back of the driver to give it weight. If I see someone doing that in my area, I'll call them out publicly and do what I can to stop those thieves from selling.

    They're correct, this is a less than marginal product. In a lack of better judgment, I purchased a VOSS Akustik 5.1 from a person I knew with a "story" for $300. Having buyers remorse, I did an extensive web search on the model number in the box (Lexington lx-310). I discovered, the Paramax P-510 the Lexington LX -310 and the Voss Akustik 5.1 are manufactured by the same company. They're all "bootleg' generic systems. Once the scam is up, they change the name and repackage the systems.

    I own a P-510 also, same system shown here and it kicks ass.. the white van guys I bought mine from were straight up… they told me that these systems came from Singapore and were not cleared for sale in the US due to failing UL Labs inspection… the problem was not bad quality but patent infringement. I cannot vouch for other Paramax badged systems but the P-510 rocks imo!

    You got ripped off buddy. The back of the trunk surround sound system deal is always a scam and one of the oldest tricks in the book. What you bought is some cheap ass no-name brand system you could've probably got for like $35 retail. They start at a high ass price so you'll obviously tell them to piss off then they keep going lower until they find your weak spot and no matter what you talk them down to they make a huge profit off you.

    You are one gullible idiot. They're playing the exact same signal out of every speaker. Not surround sound. I cannot believe your idiotic self actually fell for this.

    Hahahaha. I got the same story…600 bucks and he just needed to get rid of them. I told the guy I have an Onkyo system and would only use it for my computer…gave him 125.

    It's by no means a "home theater" system, but sounds great for a secondary system or running it for outdoor parties. When my Onkyo amplifier eventually died after 8 years of use…I hooked it up to my Onkyo speakers and it sounds just fine.

    That has to do with the frequency response of the speakers and the crossover design that is driving the sound to them. These speakers are cheapo Chinese made and do not have any crossovers, the fix would cost more than the actual system itself.
