this JD dude. Yeah, I got my box today and hey, surprise, its not what was described or what I ordered. Not to mention his packing job was literally pieces of cardboard taped together as if that was safe. Take a look at the pics...

This is the most pathetic attempt at shipping something safely that I have ever seen, but somehow JD thought throwing together some cardboard scraps and a few styrofoam peanuts would brace a 100+ pound box safely...

Alright, here's the front. Complete without the full double baffle I ordered and assumed I was charged for!

Upload

Some good looking shipping damage on the front baffle.

Upload

Hey what do you know some more damage.

Upload

Hey this guy really has carpeting skills!

Upload

Here's the SWEET gray baffle that I wanted facing the cabin of my car! Wait...

Upload

Here's the terminal cup that JD thought would work so well smashed against the side of my car.

Upload

I mean seriously? Is this guy f*cking for real? I asked for my design in all tan OEM carpet, double baffled, and with terminal on the back... I got that...

Should I file a paypal dispute? This is not what I ordered. The design? Maybe. The looks and craftsmanship? No. Did he deliver the box in his 7-10 day "turn time?" No. I really don't know what to do. I'm livid.

His basic boxes are good, but they are just that, BASIC. I had him make one for me so I can use it as a temp/foam former and it did its job until my 5200 blew it apart, a fitting end to a POS. BTW Fisher built my new box, can't wait to get it in... Polo.

Man that sucks. Is it possible that someone ordered and backed out on a box with that same width and he just sent you that one? Just saying, cuz it doesn't look like he did even one other thing right by your specs.

But.... to cheer you up a bit Reece, the 5200 in a box of that size/design is going to be ridiculous. You are going to be blown away.

Hey Reece, curious why is that box so big? If indeed you plan on putting the 5200 in it you will not be able to fully power it due to the size of both the box and port, remember the BL on this sub is insane not to mention the spiders aren't forgiving at all. Polo..

Mark Potts was a guy selling boxes on all the forums. A few people jumped on his c()ck and said his boxes were the best ever.

He got a bunch of order at one time and couldn't make em all. Some people had to wait 3-5months to get boxes, some never did. He supposeably made good on all that but about 6-8months later the same thing happened. Some of his fan-boys still backed him until he dropped off the face of the earth (forums) and didn't respond to customers. Again, paid orders ended up taking 3-6months to fill.

Since then, I have yet to see him on the forums.

Those arent braces for the 45's. JD uses very extensive bracing all throughout his enclosures. Those braces you are talking about are actually bracing the side panel, to help from potential flex. They just happen to tie into the 45's.

"Reece
I am sorry it did not come out right, the chamber and tuning is on the money, but I thought I would do a little twist to the baffle board and make it look different, you are right, I should have checked with you first. For the most part, clients like what I do, but I think on this build I really messed up. I will get you the refund with my deepest apologies for not doing the build to the standard that I am known for doing. Not withstanding any excuses, I have had a bit of a rough few weeks with injury and an imediate family issue which knocked me off my A game, and all I can say is please except my apologies, I just do not know what I was thinking. My clients are so important to me and I would never intentionally do something to upset anyone. I will get the funds transferred to refund you and if you would, would you allow me to send you another enclosure, of course at no charge, to show you that I can follow your needs, that I do do good work, and this will be my way to say I am sorry for making such a rookie blunder. The Lord teaches us to honor our mistakes and to make good on our promises, I let you down, I will make it right ten fold!
I hope you except my apologies and allow me to make it right.
Humbly, JD"

I received that e-mail this morning and I feel worlds better about this. I don't know about his personal issue and, obviously, I don't think he should have let it hinder his job, but the guy has always been nice and minus being sketchy to get ahold of I haven't had that much of a problem with him. I respect him for coming outright instead of being an azzhole about the claim and I really appreciate a free box. I will definitely make sure everyone sees his new box and hopefully this was just a hiccup.

at least pay him a little for the new box. after all he is letting you keep the current box, refunding you the money, and building you a new box. i know he made a mistake but you're a nice guy reece and you should at least compensate him if he builds you a new box.

I know this, but I will definitely not pay him until I see the results of this next box. I don't know what I'm going to do with this other box. I doubt anyone else could use it, and I'm certainly not using it. But what would JD do with the other box anyways? Its 49" wide so it wouldn't fit many applications.

of course you wouldn't. i wouldn't either. still a chance he might not even build you a new box. he might just refund you the money and say forget it. if he does build you a new one and ship it, then he has proven he is a classy guy and you would reward him by compensating him. that is if the box came out like you wanted.

The worst thing that could happen is he gets another crappy box. He wont be out anymore money.

However, I have seen a lot of JD's work. I guarantee you wont be disappointed.

as for taking my money and running, that would be dumb. i trust that JD will put conscious time and effort into this other box because he knows that i will make sure people don't think he's garbage at building. i have seen other people with his boxes that look and perform great, we'll see. if the next box doesn't work out then be ready for an e-mail BJ.
