That noise and watching the vid looks like the copper coil is stationary on that motor, and hitting the backside of the sub,They must have gotten banged the hell out of for them to come loose like that,in my opinion.That Blows man!! Used Subs /and damaged is what you got.Blows man!!!:furious:

I hope it works out man...Those worth repairing,or cost as much as new???I ask,due to knowing very little about the sub, and rebuilding a sub.Ive just always bought another sub/subs,and moved on.:uhoh:

I think his thread said he had just bought them then needed to get the cash back. So if they are bnib and bought only a few months ago the warranty should be good if not he should probably be hit with the ban hammer.

have you tried reversing the polarity of one of the terminals look to me like the coils are fighting each other.

could just be a simple labeling mistake on tc's end

Without meaning to defend the guy, don't even recognize the screen name. If he listed them as BNIB, that means brand new in box, He may very well not have been aware there was an issue with the subs. Was there any indication that they had been mounted previously? Usually you can tell if they have.

audiobaun

What do u mean?

To me..Those subs were either ran @ the wrong configuration, and got hot, or too much power was applied to them resulting in the copper coil not being attatched to the motor(GOT HOTT!)(ROASTY!!)Happen to me in the past with a pair of subs that the pos/and Neg were not marked, and were placed(face of the sub)upside down,terminals opposite sides.They had over 300 subs they said resulted in the (production line)Issue,Prob get with mass prod,Lunch time/cig break(weed break/whiskey)They were under warranty, got a replacement,along with a 40%discount on next purchase.

If they know tc sounds as good as they claim they do theN they know the newer subs had alll kinds of problems with glue and out of the box failures :fyi: real talk serious

I'm right there with brynm, did it look like the subs have been mounted before? Or hooked up before? Maybe they were just DOA? Either way, the seller fails for abandoning you like that. I'd be doing everything I could to make sure my buyer is happy and my name is in the clear.
You should hit up TCSounds about it, see about the warranty. You can give them his paypal addy to check for records if he is the original owner.

Didn't notice any but I don't kno how they could have gotten so hot.... First time I powered them it was less then 30 seconds I've only powered them all together for maybe 2 and a half minutes... Coil was never ever warm to the touch

found the problem yesterday with a trick someone showed me to see if it was indeed the glue joint in the collar.....

was tapping around the edge of the cone and found a spot where u hear the exact mechanical noise...did it to both subs.......same result just in different spots

This^ I think it is more likely a QC failure than the guy beat the living hell out of them and then sold them as BNIB.

If he knew why wouldn't he have contacted PE? I'm still thinking it was an honest mistake. If he shipped you the subs having never hooked up power as he claims he likely did not know there was an issue. He should work with you more than you have said he is though, not denying that.


Also not saying you are, but it's happened before where the buyer has received the item beat on it and then claimed they never hooked power up until now and all of a sudden there's an issue. This has happened to reputable sellers with tons of transactions. Maybe there was a weak spot in the glue/epoxy that let go once there was stress put on to it.

Sorry to hear that bro. I'd be pissed. I just saw his build thread and it seemed like he would be legit. I probably would have trusted him too. Just goes to show you can't be too cautious. Maybe this was asked already, but did you pay via Paypal? Maybe you can see if they can sort it out for ya. I won't buy anything online without Paypal but they won't always resolve it for you.

why in the hell would you unbanned someone who is a scammer. Subs just dont arrive at your door with a broken glue joint. It just doesnt happen. That is something that happened before it was shipped and the sell had to know about the noise it was making. Believe me i have broken plenty of glue joints on subs and its just not something you can not hear.

All Scammers should get a perma ban
