    Is anyone a wholesaler or drop-shipper for car audio? Brands like JL Audio, MTX Audio, Kenwood, Alpine, Focal etc? I'm looking for subs, 6.5" speakers, 6x9 speakers, tweeters, 3.5" speakers, and even amps. If anyone is or knows one please let me know :). Looking more into JL Audio and MTX though.

    Most major brands are territorial and they track serial numbers. I was a JL and RF authorized dealer but given strict orders not to sell online or I'd lose my territory. I knew a few places years ago but everything they shipped they removed the serial numbers so the merchandise couldn't be traced back to their store. Buyers don't like expensive items without serial numbers.

    Also with major brands they have brand reputation companies that run bots looking for anyone selling below MAP. If you get caught they will find the source of your products and yank their inventory or won't sell to them any longer. Major car audio brands are dead serious about protecting their brand and they do it with authorized dealers and MAP pricing. To keep everyone in compliance they hire brand reputation companies to monitor web activities.

    You'd be better off finding something else to sell if you're looking for dropshipping.
