No Triad sales online are legit, LEAST of all eBay. Bottom-feeders copy and paste our pictures and my text into their websites, and claim to be Triad dealers. When they get an order, they go fishing for the product from an unscrupulous authorized dealer. The product can be used, B-stock, a return, or in some cases, new. It takes forever because the eBay account has to find the product (which he does not stock) and have it shipped to him after it ships to the dealer. The speaker is shipped at least three times, risking shipping damage. If you have shipping damage, warranty issues, or any other issue, you have no warranty. (Triad warranty is 10 years.)
Go to a real dealer where you are assured the product will be built to order for you, and in any custom paint color you want.
