Re: David Martin, aka Raven, Rumpleforeskin, and now ( . ) v ( . )...DO NOT DEAL WITH
Heres the deal, one sub came with odd impedance readings. I tested them both before I ever put power to them. One was around 7.6 ohms and the other was something like 26 ohms. I put power to it, and played it very low for a minute and it seemed to straighten out but after asking a member on here I was told it was going to die VERY soon and that the coil wire under the dustcap was going to break as thats what was causing the readings to fluctuate. It lasted a couple days before it was dead. The subs were powered with a Rockford 501X which is 500rms@4 ohms but says 1500 max on top which any of you know it will not put out.
Anyway, had a local guy look at the sub who eventually found the issue was that the coil wire had broke at the bottom and was not anything he could get to without removing the cone/coil assembly which means it would need a recone. Credence no longer has anymore soft parts for this woofer so basically nothing can be done. I informed the seller of EVERYTHING.
NOW! I offered him a radar detector which still sells used for more than these subs were worth AND I paid $75 for shipping which was overpay. He used every penny of it on shipping because he paid the place to pack the subs. Not my problem but he whined about having no money left after. The box was wrapped in trash bags, had plywood over the subs, small cardboard corner braces and the box was 2 smaller ones on each end with the flaps taped together in the middle.
When fedex came to inspect they took the box and returned it roughly a week later or something. He says they denied it but that makes no sense because they never even opened it to inspect. The tape I used is still whats sealing the box.
Anyway, I told him I got the radar back but im out 75 bucks so we need to settle that up. I told him it would be fair if we both lost the same amount of money on this deal so neither of us is getting screwed. I said to send me 50 for the shipping and 12.50 which would mean he would be out 62.50 and since I paid out 75 and hes sending 12.50 that would put my loss at 62.50 as well and he would have the box and working sub to sell off.
He told me I was "out of my ******* mind" and I didnt receive another email.
So I think I was being pretty fair on this. Here is what I sent in my last email to him.
Look, fedex is full of ****. I used the same stuff your shipper did. Bubble wrap, plastic trash bag, plywood and cardboard braces. Fedex didnt even open the **** box for inspection. Its still sealed with MY TAPE!. They denied the claim because their insurance is a fucking joke. Like I said im not paying to ship these back AND losing the other 75 bucks......thats bullshit.
You want em back?. You pay the shipping and split the difference. then we are both out the same amount. Fair enough?. Otherwise im not doing ****.
Say actual shipping is 50 bucks. That leaves a difference on 25.00. So you send me 50+12.50=62.50. So your out 62.50 total. I sent you 75 and im getting 12.50 back so im out 62.50 as well. This is the most im gonna lose, period.
so yeah, this little post by him is complete and total bullshit
