- You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
- Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
- Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
- When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….
So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?
- Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
- Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
- Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
- Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.
We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.

Subwoofer Placement - An informative video from HomeTheatreReview.com
What’s the differences between ported, sealed and cylinder subwoofers?While the form factor is clearly different, the acoustic performance within each family is virtually identical because they share many of the same components. As such, considerations like aesthetic preference and whichever version will best blend into your décor should steer your decision. Also using the “Merlin” tool, will help you match up your existing speakers to your new sub.
Sealed boxes: For deep, precise bassA sealed box is an airtight enclosure housing your subwoofer. A sealed box is best for any music and movies that demands tight, accurate bass that hits you in the chest. Expect flat response (not excessively boomy), deep bass extension, and excellent power handling. Each beat in a tight bass setup plays crisply, accurately, and with no ringing after it hits. The sealed air inside one of these enclosures acts like a shock absorber, smoothly modulating the subwoofer cone's back and forth motion, so all the notes get produced evenly. Sealed subs are generally more compact than ported subs and can often fit easier in some locations. What a sealed sub rarely does is roar, thunder, or boom. Sound quality buffs and purists will look to the sealed box because of its accuracy and flat frequency response.
Ported boxes: For forceful bassAlso called vented, or bass reflex, these boxes are larger and more complex to design, but the payoff is usually worth it. Ported boxes use a vent (called a port) to reinforce low bass response. You get more output than you would from a sealed box at any given amplifier wattage. Some people prefer the sound of ported boxes for rap, rock, heavy metal, hard-driving music or action movies with deep bass explosions. Ported boxes can deliver deeper bass than sealed boxes, though they need to be much larger than sealed enclosures to accomplish that so take up more floor space.
