I just got my new SD-2 8's I preordered a few weeks ago. Everything went great, shipping was fast and they where packaged fantastically however after taking the first one out I realized it had quite a few scratches on the bottom plate. Checking the second one it seemed ok just had a couple slight scratches and a smudge of something. Im not going to slander the name or anything but I am pretty irritated with it. Call me picky or whatever but I was going to invert mount these subs and I would like them to look like the brand not drivers I paid for not some used or B stock items.

Ya not a big deal like I said just kinda irritated. I know they had a long day getting all the SD-2's and the Ev3's shipped out right after the holidays so some things are going to slip by...

I'm sure he'll replace them with nice looking ones if it's important to you. There's a reason stuff made in China is a quarter of the price of American made.

Replace it.

Quality control. Ever heard of it? Double check **** before it leaves your hands so things like this dont happen. Shouldnt have to color a brand new product with sharpie.

Multiple reasons. One of which was for sending out B Stock, in a condition similar to this, as new product.

No here comes someone who expects brand new things when I pay for brand new things. Not beat up products at brand new prices.

The funny thing is that if this was skar people would be all over bashing hem and making another 100 threads on how kevin is a POS. But because sundown is one of the most nut hugged brands on this forum everyone backs off. But with that said yes sundown messed up on som QC, so what, it happens to every company. The important thing is how fast they remedy the situation. With that said I am not a sundown lover or hater. Many times for price I think better can be had for their amps and their subs are great but nothing special or wowing, the sa is a good daily driver for example but i would choose other subs over it for the price point. Now the sd has really intrigues me and it may be something i will try soon :) as it is a little different than anything else I have seen on the market.

I'd just rattlecan both to match. But I can understand why op is upset. Perhaps sundown(Or whoever..) could switch it out free of charge or throw you a little money back.

I'd guess the reason why that doesn't happen is because Jacob/Sundown doesn't have a history of deliberate shadiness and lies(and general douchebaggery), like how Kevin/Skar does. People bash Skar because in their mind they already have a reason to, from past experience(s). As far as I can tell there's really no reason to bash Sundown or Jacob, which is likely why something like this doesn't blow up into anything bigger.

I agree, even though recently it seems like some people have been trying to bash sundown like this. OP could of just called them and im sure Jacob(btw which he's out of town atm) would of replaced them with no hassle. I think op started this thread intending of starting something huge like with what happened with skar.

this whole thing is one of my biggest issues with the internet, if you bought from local dealer then you could have dealt directly with them to fix, if they didnt then go back to manufacture. and you dont make a post like this until all has failed and your not satisified. good luck and as a Sundown Dealer I know they will take care of you, but next time think of the local dealer.

Every woofer is hand tested at our shop. Every one is played to be sure it works well. There is also a quick look-over of appearance. I've had a few new people in testing and a VERY high volume alongside the SD2 pre-orders so someone messed up and sent out one we would pull as a b-stock. Simple as that; and could have been much better resolved with an e-mail. Especially since everyone that checks forums at the shop is out of town. There is no reason for all of the back and forth... But I suppose that is the new normal on the forums.

That being said if you want help e-mail my sundownz account and Ill get someone at the shop on it and bring it to the attention of the testers so they will be more careful.
