Ive seen a couple interesting auctions on auction sites. They were of brand new damaged speakers. Now according the auction, the damage is just cosmetic to the box area, no damage to the woofers or tweeters. They were tested, and work fine. Some of the sellers have 1000's of feed back with a almost a 100% positive feedback to give me some more reassurance. But heres what Im wondering. If you think the speaker was dropped or hit hard enough to break off a corner. Or break the pegs off the bottom. Would it affect the woofers or tweeters, even if they were not damaged? Have you had any experience with buying speakers similar to this? I really tempted to give it a try, since I might be getting the speaker 4x cheaper than retail, but im not sure how much of chance I would be taking.. Thanks for any feedback.
