The pictures bear out the fact that the finish doesn't match. And this wasn't done during shipping unless someone opened the box and replaced a speaker with one with a poor finish.
As far as the tweeter being damaged during shipping, if someone at the store didn't even listen to the speakers (which has already been admitted), how can you even make that charge? Usually if there is a failed driver, the condition of the speaker, the box or both will bear this out.
Sorry, but this one stinks to high hell. Kevin should offer a full refund and take the speakers back. It's the only way to come out of this one with some integrity in tact.

Kevin should offer to take the speakers back, and on his dime. That's why he said that the buyer was dealing with a business, not a bunch of ass scratchers. The guarantee was intended, so why not use it? Oh and by the way, it is us ass scratchers that buy New from people like Kevin and when we want to upgrade, we sell on eBay, AudioAsylum,Audiogon etc. then we buy new from the likes of Kevin. I see no reason to insult those of us that sell our used equipment just to make himself seem more reputable.
Well, there is little incentive to take things in on trade when then internet is there to help people expose a product to a wide group of potential buyers.
Why would I hand over something I used for a few years (and kept in showroom condition) for 50-cents on the dollar knowing it will be re-sold for 75 to 80 cents on the dollar?
Same with vehicles. The "trade in value" is usually a big joke.
I've sold lots of stuff used. I advertise it honestly and ensure it is working 100% without any band-aid repairs. I've never had a problem.
and if he doesn't, he's just another 'ass scratcher'! :-)
