I own several products from AV123, rockets, x-series, and ref-1's. All have worked well for me but I have followed the various problems people have had with subs and a few other things along the way. I can't say anything negative about quality from my personal experience, but I would have not purchased anything else from AV123 because of the various issues. For my next purchase I'll seriously look at Axiom, even more so because I'm Canadian.
What makes me sick to my stomach is that Shifter stole money from people through the charity scams. I participated in many of the charity raffles, thinking my money was going to a good cause. There was always a good story to go with the raffle, but now it saddens me to realize it was a scam. The money I was hoping would go to the victims of Katrina, orphans, or the Red Cross were actually going to pay for his Porsche. I hope the justice system deals with him in a manner fit for such a piece of scum.
