HOw much do you want for those bro??lol

And yes i would suggest you buy one. 40 bucks is a steal and sell them on CL if you change your mind

I still have four unopened kicker 12's to sell on craigslist.

Wondering if I should buy one of these Pioneers for my solo box in my car.

Kid Icarus arrived today. Copy came with stand but outer paper box is a bit smashy. Should I be complaining?


Mine had a few creases here and there too. Nothing too noticeable thankfully.

What got me was the stickers keeping the box shut on either side. I have never been able to peel those circle-shaped bastards off without taking some of the box art with me and this time was no exception. It's mostly on the sides and back so it didn't take away from that awesome cover art, but it's still bothersome because I found it to be quite the appealing box.

For 15 though I really can't complain much.

So for anyone on the fence about the zune, I'd like to point out it works well with the xbox. I use mine to play music (mainly podcasts) while playing my beloved Catan.

I used my ipod with my xbox all the time. Havent played any soundtrack game in awhile, have things changed?

I laugh a bit on the inside whenever I see / hear someone roll by with the bass like that. It just screams "poor decision in 2000". The same goes for the ricer-mobiles. People rolling with really crummy plastic looking body kits on an old Japanese car like a 92 civic or accord.

Subs make music more enjoyable in my opinion. Stuff you otherwise wouldn't hear very well in some music, you can hear with subs...

I have a couple of subs I got for my truck last year, I don't turn them up full blast by any means. I invested about 1k in a new sound system, speakers, a sub and 2 amps, did a little shopping around...gives music a nice clean sound and the bass is great.

Just because you have subs, does not mean you drive around like a douche with the volume at max.

I'm getting a bit old for it maybe, but I'd love to put a system in my van :p Sadly I'm not really savvy on what brands are hot and what prices are good. And I'm pretty damned sure I couldn't set it up on my own, at least not without hours of frustration.

So for anyone on the fence about the Zune, I'd like to point out that Microsoft discontinued it.

Now that I got that out of my system, I'm pretty sure any remotely decent MP3 player can be played through a 360.

Mine came today, a bit late. I was happy to see the outer cardboard box was in pristine condition... because I like for all cardboard I throw in the recycling bin to be in pristine condition.

I've had them on CL for a long time. People offering $40 for two or $20 for one. F'n people think it's a yard sale. I understand the kickers I have aren't top tier, but I think I'm pricing them well:

People suck. I also have a dual ported box brand new selling for $70. I sold two of the same last year without issue, just can't get rid of this one.

Listening to music from any genre sounds good on a decent sub set up.

:roll: to all people in the thread that think subs = ghetto.

For the uninformed many MP3 players don't work, you'll find many a thread like this one.

http://forums.xbox.c...59/1587499.aspx. The OMU update only supports unprotected AAC files http://marketplace.x...bc-56f951377aff

The Zune allows you to use the zune pass for instance.

I have had problems in the past getting my itouch and iphone to register on my xbox. I'm willing to concede that I have not tried today, so things may be better, but the zune works seamlessly, and allows me to play music behind the game I'm playing. When it comes to discontinued, that's probably true of just about every electronic device over a year old. The zune software is still available, and zune pass has not been discontinued. A 70$ high quality MP3 player is not a bad deal. Especially considering it plays games, has wifi, radio and movies look awesome on it.

A 70$ high quality MP3 player is not a bad deal. Especially considering it plays games, has wifi, radio and movies look awesome on it.

Read through those links you posted. From what I read, it's a software problem that doesn't allow certain MP3 players to be used through the 360, not hardware. Newer Apple products specifically can't be used because of the iOS always partially running. I had an extremely old iPod (2nd or 3rd Gen.) that played on my 360 no problem a couple years ago.

And I'm not arguing that the Zune is not a decent MP3 player, because it is. But the simple fact is Microsoft discontinued it and have told Zune users to adopt the Windows Phone instead. I personally would not want to buy a product that I'm sure will be COMPLETELY phased out and have it's support dropped in a couple years.

I don't know about next week but if you sign up for Deal of the Day emails, you get 100 Reward Points added to your account. Just sign in to Best Buy Reward Zone and look under Offers and Promotions. Then click the, "Save up to 50% Plus Get 100 Bonus Points" offer. I did this last night but my points are not showing yet. If they don't show, I will be sure to let customer service know ;).

Saw this on dealnews.com and sorry if it has already been posted on CAG - did not see it though.

I noticed this just a couple days ago and have been trying since then but it won't work. once I click through to the page where it says enter your Member ID and email, the submit button does nothing. hitting enter while still in the text box does nothing. it let me unsubscribe though. too bad I've never subscribed to it in the first place. same thing on the wife and kids account.

Yeah, I had a similar experience. However, I did receive an email saying, "Thanks for signing up...". So I am hoping that is enough evidence to say, "GIVE ME MY POINTS!" :lol:

I had the same issue in Chrome, went to Firefox and it worked fine. No points yet though either.
