    if you REALLY know what you're doing, yes, I can see your point j2. However, if those half assed techs mess it up, it's their *** and the company has to pay to fix it. If YOU mess it up? out of your pocket.

    I despise Ebay. You never REALLY know what you are getting, you have very little course of action IF somehting is wrong, paypal can suck a fat one, and dealing with the people who sell on ebay can be a ROYAL pita.

    1 year beats out 0 by far.

    Some people prefer to cut corners where ever they can manage to. They just don't throughly think out those corners that they are cutting first.

    :::::EBAY:::::
    Sub amp JL 500/1 = ~$300
    Speakers amp JL 300/4 = ~$300
    Alpine Deck = ~$250
    Diamond Audio Hex 600a = ~$250
    D A 6x9 = ~$150
    Eclipse TI Sub= ~$300

    MAX Total = ~1550
    Prices for these items can be cheaper if you're lucky. I can also substitute the JL amps for other low cost amps, I wouldn't spend 600 bucks on those amps, but more like $400 bucks.
    ditch the 6x9's! if you want SQ you only need a good frontstage and a sub!

    mind you, any number of factors can kill them at any time

    working in a repair shop for couple years, you wouldnt believe some of the things people come in and say to us "i poured water on a plant, that was on my tv, and some water got in the tv, and now it doesnt work, do you think the water hurt it?"

    my favourite of all time "my jvc faceplate is broken, can you replace the outer glass piece?" "no i'm sorry, from JVC its only available as one piece" "THAT'S BULLS**T, I CAN SEE THAT ITS MORE THAN ONE PIECE" "sir, thats because its broken, we cant repair that, it has to be replaced" "LET ME TALK TO YOUR MANAGER"

    ahh, some people are stupid

    and yes, from what i've ever dealt with, NO manufacturer (at least large manu) will cover any warranty issues from anything purchased on Ebay, mind you depending on the repair shop, they can... overlook.. where it was purchased, but that all depends on the manufacturers repair process :T, if they require a receipt for service, then ur screwed

    They are pretty good. They make amps that You actually get what paid for. The technology in their amps are superior to other brands that gives them clean crisp output. I've read somewhere that their SNR is like 108-115 db with .0XX% distortion on the bench, not just on paper like some makes.

    Since i work for a car audio shop, I attended a JL Audio seminar/workshop that displayed the efficency of there slash amps.The 250/1 put out 250 watts rms from 14.4v all the way down to 9.5v!Technically a car will shut off before it ever saw 9.5v anyway.
