After a solid month of constant speaker research I thought the MM5251's would be the best choice for my set up, and finaly worked myself to spending what I consider a respectable amount of money for them @ $210USD.
I start unboxing them and preping them for installation. First thing I do is transfer the tweeters from the flush cups to the surface cups. I do this very carefully as I always have, and right off the bat, the power leads brake off one of the tweeters and take most of the terminal tabs with them, fantastic.
I do my best to repair them, as it usually is more hastle to ship them back any ways. I proceded to install everything else. Everything runs fine for about 20mins, and then one of the woofer stops working. Upon closer inspection, I find that, once again at the solder joint right beside the center cone where the tinsel enters the spider, it has broken off, great.
Now I have a dead woofer and a tweeter with a makeshift repair from a brand new set of, what should be, higher end speakers.
I hope the store (Techronics) has my back on replacing these. If not I am unsure what my step is.
Also I'm here to express my unimpressed experience with these factory faults.
