    No trouble at all. The refurbs are usually strictly quality tested, sometimes more in depth than the Astock items. Go for it.

    Re: REfurb buy or not to buy

    I lucked out I ended up getting a great deal on a 860mp used for about 2 months in new condition. But I was always wondering about refurb I have heard good and bad on them. But they give you a warrenty as well etc. But you can save some good money sometimes as well on them

    head units id be quite wary of, but amps and subs i could care less. EQ's and things, kinda on the fence.

    if i buy them, they better look pretty **** new.
