Default Last time I'm buying Lanzar

I've been around for a hot New York minute, so I've run a bunch of old Zed Opti stuff. When it got bought out by Soundaround in the 90s I still gave the Opti line the benefit of the doubt. It was rock solid and I never had any problem. In February I bought a pair of Opti 1233ds from VMI. BIG MISTAKE. Didn't have a chance to get a box built so I finally did in May. Things didn't sound quite right so I put a meter on the coils. One coil had zero reading. Great, so I call Lanzar, they said ship it back, send a money order or check for 25 and they'll ship me a new woofer. Did so 5-27-11. So I call and verify they got my woofer, and they did, but they're out. Ok, I call once a week or so, nope, they tell me to call back next week. The jagoffs cashed the check for shipping the woofer back the end of June, the 2nd woofer is dead, and today I said enough is enough, I want a refund. Kenny, the guy at Lanzar, tells me "I have to get it thru VMI." So after I ship the other woofer, I'll be out close to 500 bucks and have nothing to show for it. I emailed VMI thru Ebay and I'm hoping they can do something for me. If not, I'll do what I need to do with Lanzar.

You probably thought you'd never hear those words out of my mouth. *if* I can get a refund, I'm thinking some HDC3s or maybe some Nightshade motors for some big beefy 10s or 12s. Everything else that I've had/have Lanzar has been great, but I've seen Funky pups on 8k last longer than these subs.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience. My 1535d has been nothing but great so far even on a Crunch GP3000d at .6 ohm.

Sorry to hear that. I've been pleased with my Opti, Lanzar also worked with me when I contacted them about some information I needed.

Those sub are iffy IMO. I love Lanzar but would leave those alone honestly.

Iffy is an understatement. I could wall socket a wet paper bag and it would last longer than these woofers. VMI emailed me back saying they can't do anything unless they have the woofers, but they're the ones who told me to send the woofers back to Lanzar in the first place! Retarded.
