I'd choose the SA over the Skar (or any other sub on God's green Earth) at that price point, but I can get the Skar for cheaper. I can't find the SA for any less than the price you have in your link. I wouldn't consider any other sub you posted.
I have not idea why this is relevant. I built pretty ugly looking boxes when I was in high school. Liquid Nails is one of my best friends! Now, let's talk about subwoofers.
Same buildhouse as Sundown... Not much of a difference. Just another Chinese built sub like every other decent car audio brand.
I personally had a pretty good experience with Kevin's customer service in this past week. I know that doesn't speak for everyone, but maybe he's actually running a legitimate business now.

I started this post.. **** Hahahaha
As for the subject of Scratches on subwoofers, this is the Sundown E-10 that I purchased for my friend.
Although I don't have any pictures of scratches on the SA-12 that I can show you, I can only assure you that it was much the same thing. So am i now to claim that Sundown Audio is now sub standard or selling B-stock as A-stock? Am I to conclude that i've been scammed by Sundown?
Underhanded and unscrupulous sales tactics ... i've done my fair share working on IT & financial recruitment in London, so i can understand people getting hacked of with that. We in the UK have our own problem brand.
As for customer service, I have to say IMO most car audio companies aren't very good at all. The best response time I've had was under 30 mins from Hybrid audio when this happened ...
...... and Ground Zero who answered in a matter of hours even though I posted my question on a Sunday. I do have to add that Sundown were/are also pretty good to talk to, but the rest is days, weeks, months or in the case of Morel .... 'blood out of a stone anyone?'
