So I have this guy who I sold my 1900 watt Autotek to. He's sat on the amp since the 29th of July and now wants a refund claiming the amp is messed up. I know for a fact that the amp works as it was removed in perfect working condition as well as tested at my local ABC Electronics. The buyer was kinda shady from the beginning. He did not seem to want to buy it. I insisted that he buy from somewhere else because he was giving me the run around. He wanted me to put it on ebay and do a private auction. I declined. Then after being so ready to still buy that night, his parents happened to go to sleep and he could not send the money. Later that same night he bumps a thread for needing an amp.

That morning I sent him a PM telling him that he should deal with somebody else. Then he sends the money. Few days later (29th of July) amp is in his hands. I know it wasnt damaged during shipping. Ask anybody that I ever shipped to that. You coulda dropped that thing off of anything.

So aside from lookin at his PMs about him spending too much money on the mono amp and trying to sell it for more than I sold it to him a few weeks ago he now wants a refund. He says that it will cost him 150 to get the amp fixed though he never said what was exactly wrong with it, nor have any of his PMs or help here on the forums said anything really about the amp not working right.

Today he said it plays low. Could be that none of the levels were adjusted at all. He does claim to be a n00b, but my thing is this is not buy and try. The whole thing just doesn't seem right.

I will PM the seller so he can have a chance to respond in this thread. Everything I have said is true to my knowledge. I just have a real problem with him having probably either messed up the amp or not wanting it anymore due to seeing something better. From looking at his posts, it looks like he just wants something else.

Faced with this situation, what would you guys do?

i wouldn't give him anything. he doesn't know what he is doing. probably has the hu at vol. 2 and wonders why it ain't loud.

I sold an amp a couple of years ago to a guy, who 8 months later said "oh hey the amp quit working 2 weeks after I purchased it but I forgot to tell you, can I get my money back now"? I told him no.

Did you try adjusting the levels on the amp? Any shop will be more than willing to turn the gain up on your amp for 150 bucks. Please state your setup, Wiring and all.

BigJoker

what kind of hu do you have? did you turn the gain up? what about your sub level on your hu. did you turn on the sub outputs on the hu. my pioneer and kenwood were like this.

Yeah, I'm facing a similar problem now. Guy bought an avic d-3 from me and then claimed it was broken, I know it wasn't when I sent it. Anyways, he sends it in for repair without my knowledge, and then tells me it is $200 flat rate from pioneer to fix it. A few days ago he messages me again and says it cost him $270 and that he expects a full refund for the $560 he payed, plus the $270 for the repair, and wants to keep the hu for all of the problems he has had, or he will take legal action. I'm just starting to think this is a way for a buyer to scam a seller. Claim item is broken and request a refund. I know that the hu was working when I sent it out, so I will not reimburse him any money.

I probably would do the same in your situation. If you know for a fact that the item worked when you shipped it, don't do a refund. They can file an insurance claim through UPS or whoever if they think it was damaged during shipping, otherwise, I would probably say they installed it incorrectly, possibly blowing a fuse, maybe dropped it and wiggled some parts loose, etc. IDK tough situation, but if you are sure it worked when shipped, don't refund imo.

You have no obligation to refund any money. You sent it to him in working order. If, somehow, it was damaged during shipping, he can file an insurance claim. Otherwise it is probably just user error.

I'm 100% positive that the amp was working. The way it was packed, even UPS couldn't have damaged it. It is more than likely the levels need to be adjusted. they were all turned down prior to shipping so he or whomever could adjust them to his setup.

this is no other issue than the amp...i had an old ****** setup that was like 300 watts or so and after hearing my friends 600 watt system bump i knew i wanted to kick his *** so i went for a 1000 watt amp and sub... my setup is a crap boss audio 735 HU but i bought brand new so i know it works...the subwoofer volume was for sure turned up...i have 2 guage wiring but im not familiar with that as im 16 and my dad knows the electical stuff...custom built box diamond audio d9 d2 12 inch sub (that i bought from here with no problem). my dad and i hooked everything up sadly to see nothing playing from my sub. so i went up to D.A.D.S. electronics (my local shop) and they came out and looked everything over and said either its the wiring or amp and they brought own wiring out to see same problem. so they said it was the amp and i left it with them to get an estimate. 3 days later (today) they called to say something that i couldnt understand from some austrailian guy that the preamp outputs or something and would cost 150 to get fixed. i took it home and pmed this guy and here is where i am now

Did you not understand him because he is australian (which means he speaks english, are you not a native speaker of english?) or because you did not understand the terminology he was using. I think you should completely understand what he said the problem was so others and especially the OP can help diagonse the problem.

are you sure its not the hu? just because its brand new doesn't mean something can't go wrong.

what does your dad know about electrical?'

so the shop brought out their own power wires and rca's and ran them thru your car?

did you check fuses? does the protection light come on the amp?

Sounds to me like the shop is trying to play you like a sucker. Just get the amp back and set the gains.

Grab test tones here http://realmofexcursion.com/ (click the downloads tab and grab like a 50 or 60 hz sine wave)

Then go here and follow the instructions for setting the gain http://mobile.jlaudio.com/support_pages.php?page_id=143

i guess it could be the HU but it was in the subwoofer preout thing and he said ill just plug it in here fhit shltts and nothing worked...

my dad knows enough to hook the stuff up but probably not as much as anyone helping me out here...

i dont think they ran them through my car but they said they did a test to eliminate the wiring so i assume they just brought there wire out and wired it to something...
he checked the fuse and said it was fine, if the protection light is just the power light to show its turned on then yes it turns on

You don't know anything about audio, so you paid a shop who makes money by selling stuff to install it. When they saw you were an idiot they decided to take advantage of some newb who had no idea what he needed. So now they are upselling you wiring, new amp and probably new HU and everything else.

Protection light is the red light that comes on when something is wrong with the amp or if it gets too hot.

Lawlz. I never learned that way. Bought stuff from a shop once. Got a halfway decent deal on it. Installed it on my own, and took a year before one of the subs blew. Got it replaced under warranty and sold it to a friend, who proceeded to blow the amp, then the replacement amp, and now actually knows a bit about what he's doing

He said that it could have been due to incorrect wiring, but would not say that was the reason. That leaves the issue between me thinking it's you and you thiking it's me.

if the power supply is blown why is the green light on? when i blew my sd1500, Jake said it was the power supply. but no light would come on.

i wouldn't refund any money. the buyer is a noob when it comes to car audio and i'm not sure if his dad knew what he was doing either.

Yes. for now just use the first one (level) and see what happens.

The "Level" is the gain. It's just labled differently depending on the amp. Set the phase to 0, the subsonic filter to around 20-25Hz and Low-pass filter to around 80Hz. But do all of that after you set the gain.

If the powersupply was failing the green light would be fading out. and that would explain the litte to no output.

Thank God....... I really didn't want to give up my Madden money......:D And I would not mess with that shop being that they are giving out false info. Told him the RCA outs are bad, and told me it was the power supply, but it still powers up.

Glad everything worked out.

Thanks to all who helped out and voiced opinions. And Ranch, I still wouldn't **** on you if you were on fire. I hope you and your L7s on that xplod amp and your Feggety truck of yours end up Morgan Freeman style while your giving your "partner" a red light special.

Issue is resolved. Sub on/off on HU was turned off by default. PBNJ22 said that he turned it that on and everything was ok. He's got bass

Thank God....... I really didn't want to give up my Madden money......:D And I would not mess with that shop being that they are giving out false info. Told him the RCA outs are bad, and told me it was the power supply, but it still powers up.

Glad everything worked out.

Thanks to all who helped out and voiced opinions. And Ranch, I still wouldn't **** on you if you were on fire. I hope you and your L7s on that xplod amp and your Feggety truck of yours end up Morgan Freeman style while your giving your "partner" a red light special.
Hey, leave Morgan Freeman out of this.:mad:

How about posting the name of the shop so the guys here can avoid it.

I hate shops that rip people off. My mother gets that every time she takes a car in for repairs, so she calls me for my opinion. She took her Sportage in to have a miss diagnosed, and the shop quoted her $1100 to change the plugs, two plug wires, two coil packs, the air plenum gasket, and clean the fuel injectors. It took me less than an hour to do the whole job, and $100 at my discount to buy the parts from the dealership.

Place is called Dad's electronics. PBNJ22 posted the number and ticket number on the first page.

Actually the guy told me it was the power supply and told him it was the RCA outs. Then he said that it would be like 3 days at most to fix if they had the parts in the shop. So yeah, that shop is shady as hell. I would not go there in the future. Find some local guys here, and have them help you. You will come out a lot cheaper in the long run and make a few friends.

I don't think the buyer is a bad kid, he just doesn't know anything and is being swindled by the people he trusts to know stuff.
