Default Thinking of throwing in the towel.

This has the potential to be a terribly long story, so I'll cut to the chase.

MONTHS ago, me and several other people got together to do a group buy for some batteries. They were super cheap, so I pitched in money for three. The deal turned out to be a scam, and everyone was promised refunds. Some people got theirs, but here I am, months later, with no batteries, no refund, and quite a bit of otherwise useless equipment that is just sitting here collecting dust.

This group buy was the only way I could afford to get enough batteries to run my amp at its full potential. Since I'm back at school for my senior year, and hockey is starting again soon, and my parents are more worried about grades and performance than a job, I am not allowed to work. AND, because of this scam and me not having a way to pay them back, they won't loan me the money to buy batteries from an authorized dealer. There is pretty much no way I'm going to be able to install my equipment. That is, unless that dickhead pays me back (I've been promised money since April). And I pretty much completely missed competition season anyway, and being able to contribute as a member of Team DC.

So I think I might just put all of my gear up here for sale and call it quits for a while, because frankly, I'm sick of waiting for a refund I'll probably never get and I'm sick of having all of this nice stuff I can't use.

Sorry for the rant.

People get screwed over every day; it's up to you how you want to deal with it. I've been there before, and I just have to take a break for a while and stop worrying about it. Fortunately for us, we don't have to have car audio. I've driven around for months with an old JVC headunit and one stock 6.5" while I took care of other stuff in my life. When I lived in Savannah, Ga I didn't even have a car for 3 years. Did I miss it? Did I still browse the forums and ebay for gear? Yes.

So perhaps you should take a step back for a second and enjoy the other things in life without obligations to your hobby.

Take the hit and keep on rolling. Are you seriously going to give up on a full system because you are missing only one piece? That's stupid man. Hold it out man.

Sorry that happened to you.. But if you can't afford a full system, maybe you can downgrade to something more basic..

And school is definetly priority.. I find myself constantly selling my car audio to pay for books/tuition in the beginning of semesters then slowly building it back up when I can afford it again..

That sucks bro... Hang tight man, shit happens but don't let it drag you down. Take this as a learning experience and move on. School is more important so don't loose focus. Hope everything works out for you man.

"Moderation is the ticket to life"

^Always understood it, but never realized it til' I took a break from the "forums"

If you feel the need to take a break, then do so. I wouldn't completely "toss in the towel" w/ car audio. You love it. Just don't let it consume your life.

There's plenty more out there!

Was this that misprint on the price thing? Put whomever won't refund you on blast on here and let's use collective stength to get you your money. I'll make a call and send out some emails.

But beyond that, get your shit in. Run it @ 4ohms. Who cares? You might be pleasantly surprised by what you can get @ 4 ohms. I always am.

In the meantime, build for efficiency. Explore a badnpass. Work on your front stage. Do the little things that no one ever seems to take the time to do. It doesn't take money to work on your system.
