    Icon8 Calling out RAB

    I bought a 4k2d from Rab. I ran the amp for 2 days on the 3rd day the amp went up in smoke. RAB assured me the amp had not been repaired prior. I sent the amp to DBR who says otherwise

    DBR said and I quote

    dB-r Customer Service
    10/12 15:39 Looks like we can fix it. Power Supply is blown to hell, someone else had previously worked on this amp and looks like they did not properly secure the power supply mosfets to the heatsink, so they did not transfer heat properly so it blew them up when the mosfets overheated. I am short 1 mosfet of having all of the parts, at least that is how it looks at the moment will check again.

    Will be $250 + return shipping, how soon are you going to be ready for it?
    and

    B-r Customer Service
    10/12 15:54 Someone had taken it apart and put it back together, at a minimum, maybe they did not repair it, but they put it back together incorrectly, it does not look like something the factory would have done, it had long screws with nuts on them to hold some of the mosfets down and they were not tight.


    I have attached pictures that DBR took while he was doing the repairs.

    RAB offered to pay for 50.00 of the 287. I had to spend. when I asked for more he simply did not reply. Its worth more than 50 to make sure he never does this to someone else. Calling out RAB-4k2d-01.jpgCalling out RAB-4k2d-02.jpg

    so you think that no one learns or is interested in car audio until they join CA.com? lol! just because someone is new to the forum and the online scene doesnt mean they dont know what their doing

    unfortunately they probably wont be able to help you with anything. but go to DIYMA.com - Car Audio Forum & 12 volt Community Board and try talking to him. i know he does a lot more business over there. and if you told him you were gonna post threads over there about him being a bad seller most likely hell help you out
