Have any of you ever had experience with refurbished components ? Polk sells the SR5250 refurbed on ebay for 299.00 shipped, and I was wondering what I might could expect quality and or sound wise.

I can't speak to refurbished car audio stuff, but I love to buy refurbished computer and photography equipment. Just typing on a refurbished laptop and I have several refurbished Canon EOS lenses for my DSLR. I've never had a problem with any of the stuff. Refurbished usually means it's virtually new gear that went back to the factory under warranty and was brought back to new condition. So you got basically new gear that experts at the manufacturer had another close look at and made 100% sure works like it should. It's usually discounted substantially compared to new gear. Sometimes the warranty is less than what you would get on new gear, but if that isn't the case or the savings make it worth it, I wouldn't hesitate.
