ikesound has very good prices and very quick service. 2 emails and tracking number are sent to you promptly. received my packages from florida (to mn) in under 5 business days (ups ground)
only thing a little weird about them is that the manufacturers warranty isn't good. the warranty is good through them as a store. kinda of a pain in the *** to ship crap back to florida, but heres the way i figured it:
i could go buy my alpine type r components for 250 at Ultimate Electronics, buy an extended "NO QUESTIONS" warranty, and sales tax on top of that. That definately puts you over $300.
u can also buy the components from ikesound for $145 shipped. I figure they're going to be appropriately amped, so hopefully i won't have any problems. But FOR SOME reason if i do, i can always go order another BRAND NEW SET and be at the same price I would have originally paid at Ultimate Electronics.
With UE u would have to pay the money up front, and have the ease of exchange if there are problems.
WIth ikesound, you save money up front, and IF something happens, you have to either wait and ship them out for their warranty, or order a new set. Time is just a little slower this way.
Thank you , thank you (APPLAUSE NOW)
