hey ya'll. i just bought an eclipse amp on ebay and i just noticed something odd. The Eclipse logo badge is located on the right side of the amp, and every picture i see of the amp online shows the badge on the left side and not placed as close to the edge as the one i bought. check out these pictures:

picture of the 32440:

if you look closely at the side view of the amp in the auction you can see the "32440" but i'm somewhat wary about the different placement of the badge. could it have changed from one year to another?? thanks for you help. i dont want to get screwed!!

sometimes they accidentally assemble an amp or two wrong at the factory. no big deal.

Hey i use ebay alot and one way to tell is look at that guys feedback rating its 100% positive. if he was sellin knockoffs or tryin to scam people i dont think they would give him a positive feedback.

maybe the logo snaps off or slides. its probably not a fake.

true that. the 100% feedback does make me feel better, but it seems like all the seller sells is sports cards and not many amps so they probably wouldnt even know if it was a fake if they didnt buy it. i dont know man. i guess i'll give it a shot. thanks for the quick reply. anyone else have any thoughts?

lucas,
thanks. that's what i was hoping. wasnt sure if it was common for "fake" amps to be sold. i've never really heard of it, but i really just got into car audio so i'm not that experienced.

I dont know man, look on the side on the site that has the "real" one and then look at the same back on the one on ebay. they are totally different. I doubt it's a knock off, because the details are identical on the front except for the logo, but it might be an older model
