You guys who keep saying refund, refund, refund ... do you realize I have the exact same refund policy as Salk or any other custom builder? Not just custom builders of speakers, but anything. If you as the customer comission a custom build, your veneer, your crossover components, etc, I can't just buy them back and wait for another customer to hopefully want the exact same configuration. What I offer, as ALL other custom builders do, is that if you want a refund I will find a buyer for them. That's exactly what I had worked out, I had a buyer ready, but Paul didn't like the terms of the deal. He instead chose to continue the current course of action, which is live with the speaker which in his words sound "f**king amazing" and attack me whenever/wherever possible on the internet.
Paul is also neglecting to mention that he chose a non-grain filled finish on the speakers. This was explained to him well before delivery. Grain-filled would have all the pores filled and be glass smooth, non grain-filled would have pores and some grain still visible through the finish. The mark on the side, and the pit in the baffle he mentions have would have been filled had he chosen to pay the extra money for the glass smooth finish ... but he did not. I can hardly see how that's my fault, but since he's chosen to take this to the court of public opinion, I can understand how without that information, one would assume that it is.
Again, I can fix those issues without problem. In fact, I'm sure I can fix them and make the speakers even more beautiful than they were when I took the pictures posted because my finishing process is much better than it was a year ago. Paul is being true to his word however when he said to me in an email that he "plans to unleash hell on the internet", but for the repair to happen he'll have to take a breath and step back from that position. I'm just as willing to perform whatever repairs are necessary now as I was 7 months ago when this started.
