Did anyone ever buy a set to find out? To me they have a place and that is for the little money they are ie £99 could do someone for a year while they saved for a good system. After all when people buy new kit ie flat screen tv, stand, amp, dvd players etc etc money soon becomes painfully tight. Could be an ok stop gap - who knows :)

They just seem to be big boxes for little money, which do no-one any favours in the long term. I doubt you'll find anyone who's heard them with them being an overseas brand. I agree they'll be ok as a stop gap, but with a 4ohm rating, they're best to be avoided by people with amps below £1k.

I do have a pair of Pinkbull floor standing 'Ramos' range speakers.

The sound is quite impressive given the 'cheapness' of the speakers. Each Pinkbull speaker is rated 8-Ohms as standard.

My Pinkbull's are connected to my Pioneer VSX-D814 amp.

Hope that helps.

I got a 5.1 set of Pinkbull Kingstons today.
For cheapo unheard of things they are VERY impressive :eek:

My setup used to be a Yamaha RVX-640RDS 6.1 with Jamo E350's for the fronts, Mission 73C center, Mission 70's for the rear and an old Sony SS-CN190 for the center rear with a Yamaha YST-SW105 sub.

Now I have the same but with the Pinkbull Kingston 5.1 set (now using the Mission 73C as the center rear) all with new cable, 2.5mm2 for the rears and 4mm2 for the fronts.

There is NO comparison now :D the cheapo Pinkbulls really sound great :cool:
I used to be a MISSION man, but I've had so many give trouble and even fall apart :mad: so I took a chance with some ebay nasties and got a shock :devil:
The Kingstons speakers are rated 6ohm and seem to pack way more punch (6ohm switch in the right place on the amp)

Ok...what do the rears look like?

Perhaps they are good, a lot of speakers are over priced.

Alot of named brand stuff is overpriced TBH, not just electronices either :thumbsdow
Even though I've only had them just over 24hrs they sound better again after being on for several hours :D

I'm not saying they are better than expencive named brand ;) but they arn't as crap as expected :thumbsup: well worth the £

I would think the center one would have to be.
If you have a Plasma then it doesn't matter.

The Ramos are €199, and from the photo (can't read German) I guess we assume that is for a full 5.0 (no sub) system.

So let's break it down, for £180/€199, we have five speakers, the front two with large twin woofers. What does that make each speaker component worth?

There are 13 speaker drivers, and five crossover networks. For simplicity, let's assume the all cost the same amount.

13 drivers + 5 crossovers = 18 components

€199/18 = €11.06 per component

But, we've forgotten the cabinets, and the labor and materials involved in making them. Let's assume that is 25% of the cost, which, by the way, is dirt cheap.

So, now we have -

€150/18 = €8.33 per component.

That makes each speaker driver, on the average, worth £7.53.

And that doesn't count hardware and other components like acoustic insulation, wire terminals, screws, etc....

It is still possible for the speakers to sound OK, by some standard. But they are, in the final analysis, just to cheap to be true. They are speakers, we assume that they do work, and they are a lot of speaker for a little money. I'm sure they would impress your friends, but I wouldn't expect them to perform on equal to a more expensive and better designed speakers system.

Just a few thoughts.

Im just putting together my first speaker system, on a budget.

Have gone for the Sony SS-F6000s to start with and was going to leave centres and rears for a while. Having seen these centres and rears available for 35 quid on ebay I thought they would be worth a punt until I get round to buying the rest properly.

Go for it, you can always flog em on later on a car boot sale :smashin:

And remember not everything can be worked out with a some maths :D:rotfl: trust your ears.

BTW, LCD will be fine IF they are unshielded (but they most likely will be, if I get time later I'll open mine up and look)
 
i do have to say some of there range looks a hell of alot like the eltax speakers out there, and eltax are brilliant for the money.

Hi
Has anyone come accross these before.

Pinkbull | Power and Design

Does anyone know if they are any good? are the stats any good? thanks for any help anyone can give.

:)
I own a set from back when they were branded Ramos pinkbull i have put the back two centre and sub in the garage I have kept the big (3ft 5in) front surrounds in my studio and put them both on the b channel of my 2000w RMS onkyo amp and they sound amazing to the standards of fast pace tight thumps clear bass and can consist a good background rumble clear mids however sometimes slightly timid of the very high pitch side of the spectrum though don't let that fool you as to how they sound for playing MUSIC which is all I use them for all in all they sound great definitely worth the money better than Any other brand in the price range , and they are also made of fairely thick mdf ,very solid (I have dampened mine with fine heavy dense saw dust ) . They have only ever sounded bad when cranked to the extent of distortion in the audio file it's self and whilst -1000 - 500,000hz (that's what the test is called ) and only sounded off at the sort of frequency that would make your neibours cat cry
