    Default Sad day for my tower speakers

    So doing some cleaning, dusting, and getting the boat ready for the lake and i notice im missing one of my Exile emblems.....boo that sucks, then i notice the other speaker ring is cracked ...ugh WTF then upon closer inspection my one SX65 is half delaminated and coming unglued........so my question is anyone else have this problem? speakers are used for 3 very short months up here, stored inside and been installed for a year and a half. i don't know if there is really anything else i could do short of shrink wrapping them during the cooler seasons....maybe.....i'm at a loss Brian...any ideas?

    You would be faster to Email exile direct but since you chose the forum I will make the contact for you. Please PM ms your actual name and when you purchased these items and I'll look into out tomorrow

    so my question is anyone else have this problem
    Over 2 seasons, we saw this with about 50% of the Exile speakers we sold. The glued used to bond the surround to the cone just didnt seem to hold up to the sun or something.

    Sorry guys - havent been on here in awhile. Been slammed.

    @cowboy - Mike contacted our office today and let Natlie know about your problem. She is going to have our Canadian distributor get ahold of you and find a solution. Send me a email on how that turns out.

    @MLA>> Dont be a hater. You sold 5 pair of tower speakers in 2 seasons. Do we need to warranty something for you?

    do you pull your tower speakers down at the end of the season and store them? i know hash weather like the cold could do work on speakers.

    Sorry that you see truth and accuracy as hating. About half had this problem, the rest had blown drivers or faded pods. Some on more then one occasion.

    We sold 6 pairs to be exact.

    Thanks for the offer to warranty anything, but all but 2 customers are rock'n a different manufacturer now.

    I have all EXILE stuff in my boat for 2 1/2 years now and never had a problem. They even sent me cool stuff after the sale!!!!

    MLA- you must be a BIG dealer, I purchased more stuff for my boat then you sold in your entire store!!!! If you have an issue a public forum is not the place to air it out, remember you too can be on the flip side of the crap throwing someday
    REALLY????

    I am truly happy to hear that you have had 2.5 years of trouble free use out of your audio equipment. This is what we expect and deserve. Unfortunately, not all Exile customers have had the same experience. I wish you continued success.

    To the contrary, I am not a big shop. I am a one man operation but I can assure you with out a doubt, that your assumption on the amount of product I move is WAY off.

    You and others may not like to read what I post, but its honest, direct and to the point. Im far from PC and will not apologize for it. I'm a straight shooter here as well as with a customer that im face to face with. The OP asked if anyone had seen this problem and I answered. Sadly, more then once.

    Regards,
    Michael
