    why are my new Skar amps scratched?

    Hello,

    My name is Allen. I purchased 4 12" ZVX subwoofers 3 months ago & finally saved up enough for 2 of your SK-4500.1D amps. I received them today & upon unboxing them I noticed the mounting feet are scratched, terminals worn, & light scratches on the back of the casing. Do you guys physically test every single item or something? A little disappointed they seem used considering how hard it was to save so much coin for this expensive gear.

    Now that I think of it, I remember 2 of the subs having worn mounting holes & scratches on the chrome motors when I unboxed them. I tried calling your CS # but whomever answered was a bit unprofessional. Basically called me a liar & hung up.

    All the gear was purchaaed directly from Skar Audio so I am a bit confused.

    thanks in advance for a response,

    Allen

    sounds like you got used/B stock like many others have.

    Don't hook it up or anything if you plan on getting new ones sent out.

    Good luck dealing with CS.
