    I would never buy used and its not a trust issue. You can buy something and a week later have it fail at no fault of previous owner new owner or install. Just something went bad in the amp. Now you spent 300 and no warranty. Now you need to pony up another 300 to replace that amp. And you might gdt one that doesnt work and you got beat by the seller. I always go new just my opinion.

    You are certainly not the only person upset lol BA is still one of my favorite car audio brands and I think they should have gotten way more love than they did. Especially with brands like Audiopipe on the rise

    Bud, I have not bought from NewEgg yet. They are like a lot of online retailers that take your order, and ship from a warehouse, or another business...it is common practice. I have bought from Woofers Etc, Sonic Electronix, Onlinecarstereo, etc. I have had multiple item orders ship from destinations on opposite sides of the Country, lol. It kinda ***** to receive a Sub shipped from N.C., and wait a day or two on the amp being shipped from Ca...but it is what it is. Fortunately, the one time I did receive a sub in the mail that was bad, I contacted the seller by phone and they shipped me a new one with a return shipping label for the old one..

    This is true but if an amp is shipped from 5 states away and the seller is a deadbeat all the tests you can run doesn't mean a thing. If the amp goes a week later then you need to get it repaired. So tests don't mean crap. At least new you have a warranty. Nothing you say can change that. And obviously i had to repeat myself because you missed what i was pointing out. Deadbeat sellers and amps going bad with no warranty.

    Obviously you are buying from the wrong people. I have never and I mean NEVER had a problem I couldn't solve with a little talking and common sense. When I first started shipping amps I made a big mistake, and the amps I sent got damaged. I refunded the seller the money and paid for shipping back to me. I have dealt with many people that would do anything in their power to make a deal gone awry right. So I'm so sorry that you don't deal with the correct people and do not do your research.

    I think what they are saying is by buying used, if the amp goes bad a month after purchase, there is nothing that can be done. Would you take back an amp I bought from you and ran for two months before it quit? I would not even consider trying to hold you accountable. Anything that is bought and comes with a valid warranty card that can be registered, either with the Manufacturer OR the Seller is something...better to at the very least have the $300 credit towards another item than be shit out of luck.

    I have never bought a used amp or any other used equipment. But I see it way to often people that get burned. And you may be a stand up guy with your equipment but it doesn't mean everyone else is. Some people will sell you something broken or not working and then swear that you must have did something when you got it.

    Like I said, testing the equipment both before and after shipment if you are so concerned is your best bet. If it varies from what it tested previously by a large amount, then request a refund. That test that I linked truly does give a very good look at the health of an amplifier. So that covers that bit.

    You still DO NOT GET IT. NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TEST AN AMP AFTER YOU GET IT, IF IT WAS SHIPPED TO YOU AND DOES NOT WORK AND THE SELLER IS A DEADBEAT AND YOU ARE SCREWED. Yes it is different if you can test and see the amp up front but that is not always the case. How about this, I will ship you a broken amp and you can test it all you want and your test will show it is no good. Then you can tell me all you want that it is no good, but I will continue to say nope it is good you must have done something to it. This would most likely get you upset with me saying it is good and it is your fault it is not working. DO YOU GET MY POINT YET??????? I have no clue why you do not understand this. There are alot of dis honest people out there.

    what do I do if the amp craps after 6 months of being in my possession?
