has anyone heard of dB audio. and are they any good

http://www.db-audio.us/prod_rap_sub.asp

i orderd a pioneer 306 dvc for £75 inc p&p /£65 for sub

http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/product_detail.jsp?product_id=10130&taxonomy_id=25-130


a few days later they phoned me up saying that there was none in stock and would send me a dB audio raptor series instead with no extra charge i phoned a diferent store up and they said that they were soal supplyers of dB audio. is this a good thing or a bad thing ???

    p&p... post and packaging?

    and i don't trust a company that doesn't post specs for their subwoofers online... i'd be wary of them... try it, if you don't like it, send it back and say you want what you ordered...

    polkthug said he thinks it's bait-and-switch, and while i'd not have thought of that, i think he may be right...

    db audio is not a knockoff -- its a legitimate company. many manufacturers have used the term "db" in their names...

    Kenwood Excelon dB subwoofers
    Polk DB and now the new DB series

    there are many others.

    DB Audio is a Pep-Boys / Wal-Mart type brand... they're scrap, but they're legit.

    i am only 13 and my dad orderd it for me.
    i am going to get him to phone them up and ask for what we orderd , then no doubt they will say something like they dont stock them anymore, they sell the pioneer 306dvc(the sub i orderd) the cheepest if they even sell them. then what should i get him to say??

    i think we should stop this thread and let it continue in the audio & electronics section only, rather than double-posting...
