Short form for 'white van' audio speakers. If someone in a white van approaches you - usually in a mall parking lot - and says they have a surplus of home audio speakers they're willing to literally 'give away', that's because they can't even do that....until they meet someone like you. You think this is a break in life....imagine full high fidelity sound for only $100! Truth is they are acoustically crap to begin with and will only last a few hours when pushed. If your 'lucky' enough to find a carpeted set and you have a cat, you could ditch the speakers and add play toys your kitty would love scratching these boxes.
I have a pair of WV Specials that still have one tweeter working after the party ended. I just bought them last week.
