Dan says up to 20% is okay but would I or anyone want to buy a driver with 20%, 10%, or even 5% of it's magnet missing? I know them magnets can't be perfect but would two fairly deep gouges in the magnet affect sound quality or quality overall? Anyone else bought tempest that came with one or more 3/4 inch by 3/4 inch and 3/8 inch deep gouges in the magnet? This is bugging the **** out of me. If no opinion i take it, it's not common and the driver is going back . Goddamn i hate sending stuff back. I can't even get a half way decent stuff even when i'm trying to do DIY projects. First SVS then Adire. I must've done something real nasty shiznit past life to have karma this bad.... Somebody layed a subwoofer curse one me or something. This kind of stuff NEVER EVER happens to me with all the computer stuff i buy and I've bought over 20 grand worth of computer stuff over the internet.
