Hint for Mat-with-one-t:

 

Everyone who buys this product is a sarker (say it quickly).

You should talk to Professor VanIsWhyte at Chip Board (I believe is offices are in a van behind Dandenong rail station].  He may be able to incorporate his Confuseus transducers into his One Note Sub for you. I simply can’t imagine how much doofinition may be achievable, but knowing his 3rd order whichway, I suspect you’d achieve more than ever thought possible.....

Sonic Discharge monitors - Huge spewration of sound from both front and rear of cabinets......Rather particular on type of music fed it otherwise can leave stain on carpets

You can find tons of inspiration here:

 

https://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_classical_music_composers_by_era

 

 

That may add to my algorithm (for the European-sounding name part).  Can't go wrong!  I just randomly chose at first glance....

 

I've run with your idea, and found these for random scientific terms:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_engineering

https://www.moon-audio.com/audiophile-terms-guide

 

So using:

European sounding name + Something scientific sounding + random Advertising word

 

I get....

 

Gabrieli Resistivity Studio Reference Monitors

Gee, That is a looooooong name for speakers hahaha

 

Actually, you need to add a code name to it which makes it more real deal.

 

Like KEF R3, LS 50, etc.

 

Gabrieli Resistivity Studio- RM13 

Reference monitors No. 13

Fleetwood did the rounds in Australia in 2005.

 

Sales company was registered to directors who were dead US presidents in Queensland. 

 

Had the pleasure of getting a house mates money back off them. While having fake names, the address and ABN were legit. 

 

Hit his $400 bargain with $100k of analysers and showed in small claims court they didn't meet the specifications on the box. Either 'in-room', on axis or radiated sound power.

 

They paid up and court put a pickup or dump date in the order. They missed the pickup date by 1 day and we enjoyed their swearing pulling them from Council cleanup outside our place.

That would have made a great story, at the time. We should set out on an investigative piece as StereoNET today and go down the same path!

I unfortunately only joined 6 or 7 years ago.

 

Their USA head office in the manual was fake too. Google Maps had just been invented and it was a vacant lot. 

 

Just found this. That was the other gem too, sold as self powered.

Funny you should mention the C word, they released newly designed drivers using C.R.A.P technology, “Celestial Response Acoustic Piston”

And really good bottom end

Well the previous models had average reviews, complaints of the bottom end being watery gave management the sh*ts so that forced a redesign when they dropped to No.2 in the market....from what I read.
