    Default blown speakers?

    my polk EX352 5 1/4" speakers suddenly stopped working. I tried replacement speakers in my system so I know it is the speakers. I was not over driving them as my amp is only 25w a channel. I bought them at circuitcity last march and they said that polk does not replace speakers that are "blown". what is with that. why eles would you replace speakers? I hope that is not true as I hope I didn't pay as much as I did for 3 months of use. can anyone help me with this? I loved those speakers but will not get any more if they don't stand behind their product or is that just circuit city trying to get out? I don't know

    I don't know what Polk's warranty is on those speakers but with only 25 watts going to them you could blow them up from distortion from too little wattage. Low wattage burns up more speakers than over wattage from what I understand.
    Were you playing them at high volume?
    Call Polk as ask them what to do.:)

    You are exactly right....... Speaker damage occurs from under powered amp 100x more often than high output amps......We want to listen to our speaker loud and the under powered amp begins clipping and damages the speakers...... distortion or a clipping amp will kill you speakers!
