    So, im starting this thread of by saying that other than www.pornhub.com, craigslist has got to be one of the shadiest fucking websites ever to hit the internet.
    :)
    This is the story (which has yet to be completed) of my bumping audio system.
    i have been spending the last 6 weeks shopping around everyplace i go doing homework on all of my electronics. subs, amps, capacitors etc.
    i decided im not interested in spending alot of money...(duh) but im still looking for quallity items... so what better place to seach for cheap shit than craigslist right? Wrong! besides finding a scammer every 10 post on craigslist, you never ever know who your really talking to...

    nonetheless, i recieved an email about a set of subs and amp that were for sale.
    so i figured i could go check them out. they happened to be what i was looking for... barley used, (2 months) 12" alpine subs (2) and a decient amplifier (pioneer 760 watt)
    before i could do any thing i had to give the guy a call to make sure he was real and had the things i was looking for. i found a meeting spot with him and the story continues......

    the meeting spot was and one of the renound NOHS SOHS football game. BAD IDEA. north oldam high school v. south oldham high school RIVAL game. (so basically i was an idiot) but still i was going to the game so meeting him at the place was convienient. i get there having talked to the guy a few times prior on the phone... and it is freezing outside. i go out there dressed up like slim shady with 5 coats a fitted and a parka with a top fur hood. as im walking through the most crowded parking lot in all history dodging crazy newbie drivers i realized that this is the shadiest fucking thing i have ever done in my life. i leave my house for a footbal game, and end up buying $230 of audio equipment out of the back of this dudes ridgeline i have never met before..... he could still be a child rapist for all i know... thank goodness in the end he wasnt but.... still. plus there was like 10 cop cars parked around for the crowd contol of the foot ball game. and the guy i was buying the stuff from seemed a little shaky about the cops... (not to mention i live in a predominantly white area and he was african american) so im a little creeped... but i bought the stuff and got the shit out of there.....:) however he did help me move all the stuff to my car. which was nice since each sub weight was around 40-60 Ibs

    then i run into another problem. this dude just saw exactly where i parked and put all of my stuff that i bought from him.(not to mention i wasnt even driving my car at this time i had to borrow my sisters car for the day. check it out, its a 2005 chevy aveo hatchback, laugh your ass off.) and of course this dosnt occur to me untill about an hour later when i am watching the football game.... so i sprint back to my car as soon as the game was over and.........

    everything is there. whew!

    naw.. thats just paranoia.
    why would he steal the shit back after you know his car and what he looks like?
    why not just jack somebody else?
    craigslist isnt shady, some of the people, however, are.

    but thats not craigslists fault, there are shady people everywhere.

    the dude was probably a tweaker and decided he didnt need the stuff as much as he needed some stuff..
    thats why he was nervous of the popo.

    its not suspicious to be buying speakers from somebody with cash.

    indeed.
    so....
    ill continue.....

    after i purchased these i was asking all of my friends who have done car audio work before because i was looking for the cheapest way to get my system working. after meeting and buying my subs,amp, and capacitor from the shady black dude, i made a list of all the things nessesary for me to get the system going.

    i needed a wiring kit, a box, and as i found out later... a new head unit.
    i new that i was going to need a new head unit, but for some reason i was holding on to the idea that just maybe my stock one might work. the first place i checked for my supplies was walmart. believe it or not, they had some of the things that i needed that major electronics stores (like the cheap bastards at bestbuy) didnt have. from walmart i got my wiring kit. $36.29 including tax. then i made my way over to bestbuy which i would soon find out was the biggest ripoff in the planet. i walked in and asked them about installing my amp and head unit only, just to get a ball park on how much it might be if i got lazy....
    to do it all, would cost me over $350. not including purchasing the head unit,subs,amp,or box....
    i was really confused. especially now that i am almost completely done with my car and i have spent only a grand total of $329.81
    however, i ended up getting a sweet headunit from best buy for around $50 (i had a gift card)

    if you all have ever had to install a new headunit in your car, they can be very annoying at times, i had to go out and get a special wiring harnes for my new head unit. sucked.

    so the point to this story was
    1. you're paranoid
    2. you've never bought used audio equipment (most of the time, it goes about like that)
    3. you seem to be pretty racist. you should work on that. you'll just end up bitter.

    I would have to state this is probably one of the most worthless threads I have bothered to read. What was the point of this thread exactly other than to state you are paranoid for all the wrong reasons?

    +1 for invisibledemon.. wont let me rep you though.

    Werd, never buy used car audio stuff, unless it has a legit receipt. How were you supposed to know that all the stuff you bought actually worked too? It's just a lot easier to buy new, it may be more expensive, but in the end the peace of mind is it worth it. At least that's what I think.

    ^ haha

    well i knew that everthing worked. when i went to meet the guy i made him show me everthing that i was going to buy. and turn it on to. the subs came right out of a custom box in is truck and the amp was plugged in too.

    i was planning on turning this thread into a "show how w/ pics" to do a nice audio job on my car, however, i got really excited and didnt take pictures of all the work i did to get everything set and working in my car. but if anyone wanted to see the pics of the dash since it is allready complete and pics of all the other crap i had to do i can probobly get some...
