    I almost bought from that guy. I asked him if I could pick it up instead of shipping it and he said they only ship. If you are that concerned, when you get the amp, call RF with the serial number and ask them to verify that its authentic. It should come with a birthsheet. I think you'll be fine though. There's a lot of sellers on eBay that aren't authorized RF sellers that sell amps at map pricing. They just under cut each other. I've tracked that exact amp for months now and $450 is a fair price from an unauthorized seller. I bought mine off ebay and it works fine.

    Anyway, why not get a few guys together that have been burned by him and plan a surprise party for him next time he posts something?

    I had my hands on a counterfeit Alpine amp -- it has weights in it to seem heavier. Externally it was a great reproduction.

    Yeah I agree that $300 would of been better for 1500w but I wanted one new not refurbished, otherwise I could of picked up a used or refurb for less.

    Good Idea on the Ser. # Because if it is legit I don't want to break the warr. seal on the bottom cover if its not needed.

    Thats the scary part. A good counterfeit is nearly impossible to spot even with a real one sitting next to it.

    The RF BD series amps are quite solid. If you are not totally abusive the 1500 should last a good long time.

    Not nuthugging any brand. Question was are there counterfeit amps out there? I asked because I just bought a RF (new) from a non-authorized dealer for the first time. All others were used or from local shops.

    Just a lil paranoid of the gray market. That goes for lots of things not just car audio. I am sure my new amp will be fine, but if it's not I will post about it for sure.
