Pyle 5.25" Outdoor Waterproof Speakers

There is no way in hell that these should ever be $157 speakers, not even out of the back of a white van.

However, they’re very much worth the $35ish they’re asking. They sound good enough and you don’t have to worry about someone stealing them because, hey, they’re cheap.

These were $29.99 back in mid-June when I bought them originally, what’s changed to make them worth more in the meantime?

ETA: They sound OK at best, but that’s probably because I have them hooked up to an 8Ω system. Was planning to get a second pair to run in series and hopefully make them sound better, but now I’m disappointed to see they’re more expensive.
