Man! A NEW one is only $399 and that includes FREE SHIPPING and a WARRANTY! Even if you find a used one, you'll have to pay shipping, and you won't have the warranty. At this price, it makes more sense just to buy a new one. The minimum amount of $$$ that you'll save by buying used isn't worth what you'll lose to get there. Also note that finding a used one for sale is RARE. That's because those who buy them are usually so wowed with the performance per price that they just keep them forever. I understand buying used on components that cost >$1,000 to start with, but on budget stuff that was so inexpensive to start with, the owner has to sell for SUCH a discount to make it worthwhile that the owner might as well have kept the component in the first place.
That's what I'm finding with my Airmotiv S15 subwoofers - The new ones cost so little, and the shipping is so high that it's HARD to sell used. I'm thinking more and more strongly that I may just keep them. But I digress - Think again about whether or not you want to buy used in this price range. The small amount of money you save may not be worth what you give up to get that "used price."
