    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.

    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.

    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.
