Ok guys,

It is time to do some cleaning house - this is a for sale thread for any VVX-8s we tested before shipping to customers that did not pass Q/C tests. These woofers are pictured below, and can be bad for any number of reasons. These are being sold AS IS. The price is cheap for just that reason. There are no returns on them as they are Q/C Failed sales. These will not be tested any further before shipping and we will just grab one randomly and ship it (in its original VVX-8 packaging.

First come first serve

$60 Each Shipped in lower 48 states. PayPal to kevinSkarAudio.com (Specify coil and qty when sending payment please).

Amounts Left

D2 - 1
D4 - 5

Pictures below.

Yes. Could also mean there were was something minor wrong and it may function just fine, but less then likely.

What the cost of a recone if one does come in DOA?

What are the chances that we could get one with a shifted motor or something thats not easily reconeable?

It may be an easy fix it may not - also - just because magnets don't align perfectly doesn't mean it won't work (that might not be the reason it q/c failed in particular). Some B-Stocks that work fine have shifted motors but it doesn't effect sound at all.

I guess I don't see why you wouldn't take the extra time to re-test these and find the issues with each when there are so few of them. They would probably all be gone already dead or not.

Pinpointing the exact issue, labeling each issue for each particular sub and then keeping track of it all would be a lot of hassle imo. I'd just sell them as broken and move along too. If the problems are just the softparts, these are a very good deal. Just read on another forum that they wont have recones back in stock until April though. :( I'd snag a couple more if I could get recones now.

It would be nice to know at least if it was already dead. Couldn't take more than a few minutes to hit each coil with a dmm and see if you at least get a reading on the coil.

He also mentioned in that "other thread" that you can easily use/get a recone from SA for these. I bought one already just cause its a hell of a deal either way.

He hasn't said cause he doesn't have any. That's why he's given other means for recones.

No exact price, but there are other means for recones until ours are in stock around April.

Finally got to test mine out. Seems to work fine. On;y when I turn it up to much I hear a faint mechanical noise. That's not gonna bother me cause it's going in a 4th or 6th order box. So i'll never hear it, lol.

thats cool.

but for 60$ its worth it for the motor :imo:That was my thought too. Figured the recones were cheap enough to get it just for the motor alone.
