    Best buy screwed me :(

    Well I bought an Aiwa HU and I was past the 30 day warrant but they said that was ok.. But too bad they discontinued their products so I couldn't exchange it...

    Anyways do you think this thing is gonna be able to run my 15" AA Atlas powered by a MTX Thunder280... The guy that designed my enclosure said the preout voltage is gonna be weak so I might have to turn the gain up alot on my amp, which may or may not work.

    You can still get your money back.. Same thing happened to me years back with a Clarion changer I bought from Best Buy.

    If you dont want that deck, return it, and throw in a bit of money to upgrade.

    I TRIED that they wouldn't return it. I asked to see the manager also. Because it is a discontinued line.

    TRUST me, they will give you store credit. I dealt with some idiot who said I was out of luck even though I bought the extended warranty... I called the 1800 # of Best Buy, told them the situation, then the they called the local store. THEN the idiot I talked to acted like I never told him if I couldn't get a new one, I'd take store credit. In the end, I got my store-credit. Just raise a lil hell if you have to!

    What am I missing?

    You bought a deck. Now you don't like it. You kept it over 30 days. You haven't said there's anything wrong with it except that someone told you it didn't have enough pre-out voltage.

    How exactly did you get screwed by anyone other than yourself?

    Speak english...

    Same here???

    Just use the working HU. I don't see where you got screwed or are losing anything.

    You just have to pay twice the price and fork over even more dough on the warranty.
