View Full Version : AUDIOM3 - - Scammed me on 07 RE XXX

Well in february I bought a 2007 RE XXX D4 subwoofer off of him. After playing with it only in a home theater box and in my friends car once not even pushing it hard AT ALL I went to sell it as I have no use for it. I had a buyer lined up and was about to ship out but wanted to check coils before to be sure nothing was messed up (Im sure I didnt do anything as I have much experience with subwoofers and KNOW when something is wrong/being clipped).

Upon checking the coils one coil read NOTHING. Zero ohms. Not even a flicker of anything. The other coil was reading ~2.6ohms and was not very stable. Upon this happening I immediately contacted the buyer and told him that I was willing to sell to him cheap but he wanted to make sure they would still sell him a D4 recone. After talking to Greg at RE, he informed him that they never made a D4 for the newer style XXX's only for the 12 spoked older models.

After looking at his previous posts it looks like he had a few things go wrong.

Wow I thought this thread would get buried but I guess I was wrong anyway the biggest problem I have is crazy voltage drop (2600w on a stock 90amp alt). Also every time I try to push the sub hard I start to smell it and im wondering why? Ive heard that the new xxx has low thermal power handling but I dunno if its something else.

Also he had it at 1ohm not 2 as he thought which is probably why he started to smell ****. Right now Im just really pissed and want to give him his 90 lbs paper weight back. You pay shipping AUDIOM3. This just really pisses me off. I know you're in gainesville which isnt far. So come get your paper weight and give me my money back. You're lucky it didn't fvck up my friends amp which is only 2 ohm stable or we'd have a bigger problem on our hands. Ill provide pictures as soon as I get back home. Just heard back from buyer about them never making D4 so I thought Id post now. If you make this better I wont hold anything against you and will have this deleted.:mad:

If your smelling somthing your clipping the **** out of ur sub... Not good at all... Clipping = heated voice coils = blown subs = sad


Think I saw a thread a couple weeks ago, he's already pulled this sub and is selling/sold it. lol


Yeah I got a solox give me a week or 2 and ill have another build log on here


Got rid of it quick eh? Wish I would have seen this before, let this be a lesson to everyone to have coil picture included with sale.:verymad:

Oh and it said 06 XXX build for this thread:confused:

Help me understand....

You bought it in Feb. You didnt test coils on arrival. Now the coils are not reading correctly. Because someone else did your homework and found out they didnt make a D4, you want your money back?

I can see where you are coming from but I believe you are gonna have to eat the cost on this one.

I dont have a car. I was using for home theater. And yes, how am I not going to believe its a D4? I didnt have my DMM until sale so I had no way to test borrowed my friends. I understand I am a little late but this is ridiculous. It is practically worthless now, and it wasn't even anything I did. Coils LOOKED perfect.

I am, no wait, I WAS a trustworthy guy. He had refs. I didnt have a DMM, I barely used it twice so no I would be happy with less than what I paid obviously but Im not going to eat all this money for doing nothing. How are you all going to say I am fully responsible for this? Thats stupid. If you didnt have proper equipment to test it then found out it was broken would you not do the same exact thing?

for the record, I understand that you are mad and you feel scammed. By his other post, that you are just now deciding to dig through, it looks as if he did try something shady.

At any rate, good luck with this.

I would be fine if he paid for a recone shipped to my house honestly. Ill eat the fee for someone to recone it, even though Im not even sure if that can be done.

ppl will learn when you buy something used always check it out throughly when you receive it. if not, months later you cannot expect a refund.

If you cant test it yourself, you go with a friend. If thats not available, shops charge a small fee for testing.

private detective would have kept you from getting a sub from a seller that looks less than honest..

i'll say i bought one of my idmax subs a couple months back and never tested it. if it is jacked up i know im going to bite the bullet and just buy a recone and not bock about it on here.

Dagnabit. I was going to say the same thing.


To the OP, I highly doubt that RE would ship out a recone for this driver. To my understanding you have to ship the whole kaboodle back to them. They may, but I doubt they'll guarantee anything.

And it does **** to be in your situation, but this is one of the reasons you do a little research prior. You should have definitely tested the driver upon arrival. Having the seller send pictures of the coil readings is a must for a sub of this magnitude. I also thought it was common sense that the newer XXX's were made exclusively with dual 2ohm coils...

you have the sub a minimum of 5 month and now you come on here crying about it is f**ked up when, it is your responsibility to check it out when you receive it. not too bright!

sorry I was reallllly pissed last night when I wrote this. Ive calmed down a bit (cause i bought a motorcycle last night:veryhapp:). Sorry to all before if I jumped on your case I was being a litttle irrational. Still waiting to hear from audiom3 though...I emailed him the thread topic and wrote him a note.

It sound's to me like you found a good deal and jumped on it without researching. It would have taken all of 2 minutes to search and realize they didn't have a D4 which I know if it were me and I found out that it wasn't a dual 4 like he was stating would have caused me to back out of the deal. You also really can't prove the coil being bad didn't happen in your short time using it or his and I bet when he come's in this thread well if he does he is going to state it worked and read fine when he tested it so it's going to be your word against his with neither of you being able to prove anything.

Maybe you will be lucky and he will be a stand up seller and pay for a recone but I wouldn't hold your breath on it. Look at the bright side though, you have one of the few subwoofer's that will sell for a decent price blown.

the seller did say that when he was using it "it smelt like something burning" when he played it "too hard".........

i feel bad for whoever bought his amp since he played it full tilt on stock electrical, at God only knows what ohm load....

So, peoples subs smell all the time. Whos to say it was blown? Nobody knows, probably not even the op. I mean he was playing it and couldn't even tell it was blown...

orangecounty1

the whole thing isnt blown, it still plays...just one coil....it wasent very loud at all when we hooked it up, now we know why.....it was only playing one coil
