Everything else looks perfect on it. I'm getting 1.6 Ohms on each coil so I assume they're fine. I guess my only concern would be wearing out prematurely if it had been rebuilt or refurbished.It's tough to say. If the gasket had no rub marks on it I would say it's new or at least never mounted. AB doesn't have the greatest quality control or coils so it could be new.
But I would see what else Bob has to say. I would hope the owner of AB would know for sure. Tell him you got it from a dealer in FL.
That makes sense. Thanks.The reason they don't look the same as the recone. The recone can not run thru a QC process. Thats something you have to do once you install the recone. If they did any type of QC to make sure the sub works, its gonna look different than the recone. Because power has been put to the voice coil.
Got it for $246. Just chatted with the seller and they assured me it came to them new and the discoloration is from the boat ride over. I think I'm going to run with it. Working on a box design now.That coil looks pretty shabby, but 一分价钱一分货 I guess. My Precision Econowind coils don't come looking like that.
Did you get a good enough deal that if you have to throw a 90$ recone at it you're not = the price of a new one?
Yeah, I'll go ahead and run it. Probably be a couple weeks before I can get a box built.I would run it. I beat the piss out of my XFL. Many competitions where I clipped the hell out of it trying to get that extra .1 on the meter. And it was still banging when I got rid of it.
