    Roommate punched a hole through old school RE XXX while trying to install it

    For some crazy reason I let him screw it in, and he slipped and punched the screwdriver through the surround. What is crazy is this thing literally came back today freshly reconed and we were sticking it in, now it has to go right back to Fi. Is this going to need a recone I am assuming, or do you guys think they can just replace the surround with out reconing the whole thing?

    Before anyone says it, it really was my roommate and not me, if I did it I'd say it was me

    Not really, It can be reconned if you want to sell it or if the buyer wants.

    Mostly people buy those so they can get the motor and basket if they are in good condition.



    List of Ref's Just ask, Shinju on all Car Audio Forums!

    It all depends on the buyer, if they are picky bout things like that. You probably wont be able to get the money you want out of it though...

    All depends on the buyer...
