Questions about buying a cab on Ebay

  1. There's this cab I want to get on Ebay. I have a few questions.

    1) what if it doesn't work or something when I get it? Am i just screwed??

    2) How much would shipping be from Missouri? (the cab is 100 pounds!)

    3) Has anyone here gotten a used cab? Do they "age" and sound duller with time?

    4) What do you recommend doing?

    1) Yes, you're screwed

    2) You can check the weight at the shipping company's website (UPS, etc.) Rest assured, it will be pretty pricey

    3) Generally, unless something's about to go, the cab should sound fine

    4) Don't buy it, or if you must, caveat emptor
  3. I bought a cab on E-Bay. 100 lbs & $80 to ship.
    Got it and all eight speakers were blown.
    Had to buy all new speakers.
    It's fine now.
    My wife is still kicking me in the butt for that move.
