Default Anyone order from " boat parts for less " .com

Looking to buy some speakers and came across these guys, I was pricing the JL Audio speakers and these guys by far are the cheapest Ive found, so cheap that I am concerned!

Please post if you have ordered from them, good or bad. Thanks all....

boatpartsforless.com

Also, I am in NO way affiliated with these guys. Thanks !

The quality of the website alone would concern me. Find yourself an authorized dealer and the peace of mind alone that your product has support is worth the extra money. In the rare case your JL product has an issue I doubt anyone will stand behind it. I understand wanting to save money, been there done that and still doin it. You just have to choose wisely on what to cut corners on. This is just my opinion and you know what they say about those! Good luck!

Actually came across thehulltruth because I was googlingboatpartsforless and saw this post. When I saw it, I was like what’s going on now! My husband and our family moved to FL last year. We decided if we live in FL now why not buy a boat. We bought a used Proline and what a nightmare it's been. But I guess that's another story. Anyway we have already purchased twice from boatpartsforless and tonight is going to be our third. Everything seemed fine. We received exactly what we purchased and the shipping was fast.While they appeared competitive on the pricing. They were located in FL. That is why we went with them. I do agree with Eloc309. It is always better to air on the side of caution but product and service was good. The husband is pretty happy and well I thought I’d throw my two cent’s in. Going to hang out here more often. Hopefully this helps.

WaterLover, glad they worked out for you.

Yep, I'm a little cautious. I don't make a lot of money so when I spend my money I wanna KNOW it's well spent. Backed by warranty and great customer service. The THT vendors are second to NONE. When I find a website that saves me a couple bucks I have to ask myself, what if things don't go right? Who do I speak to? Will the call get routed to India? Will they apologize for my inconvenience and say that it's covered under the mfg warranty and suggest I call them? And when I call them they ask where I purchased the product just to decline a warranty claim because I purchased it from <insert non authorized seller here> and they have no way of knowing if they really even made it. Can't blame them either. There are bad people out there! It's not worth the worry to me.

PS........I am not bashing this above mentioned website. They may actually be legit.

OP......let us know how it turns out of you decide to go that route.

I did not go with them. Not an authorized dealer and just didn't feel comfortable. Went with a very well known stereo shop and they actually matched the price which I was amazed by and they are a signature dealer as well so it was a no brainer!
