    Chipped magnet

    I received my brand new sub today which I think was damaged during shipping. Theres a small chip on the magnet and there are shavings that remain of the chipped piece. I'm wondering if it matters much of the magnet being chipped? I put the shavings back into place. I'd rather not have to send the sub back being that I live out of country.

    That's pretty bad for a new sub. If it was used, I would not worry about it, but since it's new, I would file a claim with the shipping company and contact the seller and have them ship a new one out. You shouldn't have to pay a single penny out of pocket for a shippers mistake. Be firm, don't just give up. Hope all ends up well for you.

    They'll most likely help you out a little be expediting your order, maybe not shipping though since you're out of country, but you wont have to pay dime for anything past here.

    Re: Chipped magnet

    If you don't care about that slight damage perhaps you could ask them for a partial refund. Ask them and see what they'd offer. If it's really low tell them to go fck themselves and to send a shipping label.

    Won't hurt performance, but assuming you're paying for new that sort of cosmetic blemish is unacceptable IMO.
