C'mon, guys.....although flaming TCAB is always a humorous endeavor it's old as well.
The OP is happy with his purchase.
He likes the way it sounds.
Apparently he's at least content with the appearance of it.

For him, at least, it was a worthy purchase and that's all that needs to be considered.

Glad you're enjoying your new enclosure, d00d. Good for you.

I couldn't agree with you more on that particular point.
Mark's business practices left more than a bit to be desired and as a result he was banned from this forum (as well as others if I'm not mistaken).
At the end of the day, though, what it boils down to is that he's gone from here excepting the rare situations such as this thread where someone buys something from him locally.
Instead of turning this guy's thread into a monstrous Mark Potts hatefest (however warranted it might be) let's be glad that he made a purchase he's satisfied with and move on. Don't we have better ways to occupy our time? Certainly it isn't as if there aren't plenty of bytes being taken up on CA.com's servers about this very subject that ANYONE who wants to know can easily find many, many reasons why not to do business with TheCarAudioBox, wouldn't you say?

I'm not intentionally trying to be a killjoy, man...I'm just tired of seeing the same type of thread over and over and over where Mr Potts is concerned because it's old. It's done. It's overdone. Please see the above reply to Chad...

I'm glad that you are happy with your purchase.

I know that this doesn't mean a whole lot coming from me, but mark has really turned things around for the better lately. Much better boxes, better service, and HAS to do things on time nowadays because he is building boxes for a shop.

x1.5 billion. Lately he's been blowing sunshine up judges / R&E committee's asses on the MECA fourms.. and quite frankly makes me want to puke.....and I dont think im alone on this.....right tommy and joe? :naughty:


Im sure that box will work out for the original poster, its a quite familar design :uhoh:

Sorry, I'm a little slow.

Mind explaining why?

Would carpeting improve the looks or what? The person asked for bare MDF.

Is that something new?

People sell bare boxes ALL the time on this forum.

what's with those glue stains and table saw burn marks on the box? Doesnt he ever clean that up by sanding?

doesnt look good to my eyes...

azbass
12-15-2006, 05:11 PM
oh sorry, im used to haveing a nicely finished box for my customers. if they want bare. then no box for them.

Why would you bother sanding a bare MDF box?

It's not going to look any better by getting rid of that stuff. It's still bare MDF.

Ever think that the owner is possibly going to cover it himself?

Jeez people. If this wasn't a TCAB thread $5 says all these comments wouldn't have been said.

Mark doesn't have the luxury of turning down customers.:laugh:

But you would seriously turn down the opportunity to make a bunch of money simply because the customer didn't want it finished?

azbass
12-15-2006, 05:17 PM
im cool like that.

saywhat?
12-15-2006, 05:19 PM
id build a triangle box, with no glue, housing 1 12, and 2 8's if i was payed to do it and thats what the customer wanted.

If the customer has plans to cover/finish the box, then the glue and burn marks are okay, but if it's going to stay bare, i think it should be sanded down.

Lets see, he accepted dozens of payments for boxes to be built for people all over the US.

He promised the boxes to be done in 3 weeks & obviously he could not keep up with it.

Fast forward 2 months, still no boxes. 3months...same story, 4months, same...5months, same. Still nothing, all while telling people the box's are done, they are already in the process of being shipped.

Still accepting payments when he knew he wasnt able to complete his end of the deal. There were people who were waiting for boxes longer then 6 months.

Thats not a good way to run any sort of business.

No one, not even his local team members/friends can argue that fact that this was a VERY stupid move on his part. It ruined his rep, plus I never saw him answer for any of this. His friends were the only ones who stood up for him & he still (not that ive seen anyway) never issued an aplogy which could have gone a long way IMO. Hell ill even go as far as saying it made those around him Phat Hertz (though they had nothing to do with marks actions) look bad.

Whats the saying... one bad apple...

I think that about wraps it up.

There was never an "official" apology to everyone because he got banned before that could even happen. :laugh:
