Freaking A, this is EXACTLY what I figured would happen. I'm calling Newegg and see if they will adjust my price, I just completed my order yesterday for 3 subs at $349.99 each, and today they are back at $299.99 each.

The only problem is I ordered at their Ebay store and not Newegg.com. On their Ebay store the price is $499.99 (no promo code). However the item says free returns if unopened. So I emailed them to ask if they'd adjust my price to the current Newegg.com price of $299.99 each. I'd rather do that then return these when I receive them for a full refund, and buy 3 more from their regular Newegg.com site. They'd be saving a ton of money in return shipping, so you'd figure they'd rather do that as well, but we'll see what they say.

The very next day! That's fries it.

If "nice and persistent" doesn't work, tell them you'll refuse delivery, they'll have to pay for return shipping and you'll expect a full refund as a reward for their stubbornness.

And if that doesn't work, then there's the PITA price matching with the credit card company.

Sorry to read that it happened the very next day. That's a roaster.
post #311 of 2776
Bought my 2nd one on 1/2/13 Wednesday for $350 just got off the phone with Newegg and they are giving me a gift card for $50.

So I'm very happy with that.

Good point, I never thought of refusing delivery. They should take care of it as it will save them $, however if that doesn't appear to be going anywhere then I'll let them know that I could always refuse delivery. Either that, or their listing says full refund (no restocking fee) in 30 days if unopened. Either way they'd have to pay shipping both ways for nothing, just to turn around and put them back on a truck to ship a 3rd time once I bought at their website.
post #313 of 2776
Funny, I just got off the phone and they said to do exactly what you recommended: Refuse delivery and re-order from Newegg.com for the lower price. This was Newegg.com customer service, he said since the order was through their Ebay portal, he wasn't able to issue any credit even if he wanted to. He said that the Ebay store customer service also wouldn't be able to issue any credit.

So while he admitted it would be more expensive for them this way, that is what he said to do. I understand why they have policies and procedures in place, but in this specific instance they seem to circumvent common sense.

I'm a firm believer in the principal that life is easy. The requirement, the individual one is dealing with (eBay Newegg), has to have the same attitude. At this point, if you're able, I'd take a flyer, buy a second sub at the lower price from Newegg, refuse delivery on sub ordered first from eBay Newegg or keep both and apply for the credit card price matching as now you'll have pricing proof.

Choices. eek.gif

Bought a Third One today to add to my previous pair...can't wait!  At $299 can't pass it up!

post #316 of 2776
I'm curious just how many subs do most people really "need" for most applications (excluding audiophile)? For me while it would probably be nice to have 4 subs, I've usually only had 1 and that seemed like more then enough. Now I'm upgrading to 2. Wouldn't 2 of a relatively powerful sub like the RW-12D be more then enough for most people for general home theater / TV / Game use?

Wondering if I'd really "NEED" more then 2, or if 4 would be more of a luxury rather then a necessity and 2 should suffice? Right now I just have 1 x 15" Definitive Technology PF15TL+ in a living room that is roughly 14 x 14 however isn't closed off, so my whole main floor is basically open, and that seems to be plenty good for my needs. Shouldn't 2 x 12" RW-12D's be plenty? Just wondering if getting more then 2 would be considered overkill by most people. Most of my friends now would probably say that having 2 alone is overkill lol.

You have no idea how hard it is to be a fanboy of the RW-12d and at this price, not buy one when holding out for another more expensive model. cool.gif

(I can do this)

so I bought a third just because I have a relatively open room and I wanted to balance out the sound.

my two will be up front and the third in the center of the rear of the room.

 

if i had an unlimited budget I would have bought a 4th....

 

in all honestly 2 worked great...but since they are discontinuing that model and at the price I figured why not.

2 will be fine. I have two and in my room the closet doors are rattling against their door frames on the low stuff. I think you will be more than happy with 2

I was going to jump on this deal, until I began reading reviews of this sub.

Things like not being accurate, sounding boomy, muddy and suffering from
port chuffing and plastic creaking, were used to describe the RW-12d.

Think I'll look at the VTF-2 MK4 Subwoofer.

I just looked and it is $499.

Who "needs" a sub? What does being an audiophool have to do with it ? wink.gif As to whether an RW12D is relatively powerful...look at the charts at www.data-bass.com for some powerful subs. smile.gif

Personally I have 3 subs in my living room (large room, and somewhat open to a stairwell, and when sliding doors are open, open to even more), an Epik Empire (dual opposed 15" drivers) and two Infinity PSW310's (10" drivers each with two 10" passive radiators). I almost bought another Empire used but my wallet screamed no due to excessive car/medical/xmas expenses, though. My RW12D is in the bedroom.

Yep you are right...seems like 2-3 times a day the price jumps.

 

Crazy!!

post #324 of 2776
The majority of my "needs" are influenced by my "wants".

I want chest pounding bass to immerse me in a movie. I want my sub to breathe for me. I want a car door on Hot Fuzz to sound like I'm storming the beach of Normandy from my living room.

But I need a sub that can play a little deeper. I need something to dig to about 24Hz, or perhaps 18Hz(it's only costs a bit more right?). Need more output. But I don't want to waste money upgrading in the future again, so I need to just buy the sub I want now, rather than buy stepping stones. I need to buy an HSU VTF-15. No! I need to save money and go DIY!

So now, I need to build a quad 18" setup to complete my system.

That's literally how my mind worked the last few weeks.

No need to waste time building a quad 18" setup, just order four of these bad boys. smile.gif

That may not be a bad idea. As just yesterday I was reading up on orbit shifters.

If only I didn't live in an apartment complex. biggrin.gif

Ever try turning up the volume on the sub instead of ordering two or four ? ;-)

It is not about loudness per say...but even coverage in my really open room.

That's a great idea but it's an idea that doesn't work. Sound waves interact in a room by bouncing around and running into each other, canceling each other out in and in the process; create nulls or sound voids. By adding more subs to the room you get the benefit of co-location gain (synergy) and the aforementioned "nulls" are filled in by the extra sound waves bouncing around in the room; "If the left one don't get-cha, then the right one will." That sort of thing.

You'll note I asked who "needs" more then 2 subs, I never asked who "needs" a sub. And being an audiophile has nothing to do with having a subwoofer or 2, I'm talking about having to have everything perfect sound wise and splurging on a $20,000 media room because only the absolute best of everything will do, which is overkill for most average listeners.

And I definitely am not going to get into, nor was it my intention to get into, an argument about the power of the RW12D vs the biggest baddest woofers on the market. I was simply trying to say I have the old RW12, and for my tastes, I was more then satisfied with the power this had. I'm sure there are others out there that are much more powerful, and likely cost 3x-4x as much also. So from MY perspective, not saying anyone else will or has to agree with me, that I feel that for my needs the RW12D has more then enough power to support my average listening requirements.
