Unfortunately the inevitable occured. The house next door turned the volume up on their system. Interpreting this as a challenge, I rose up to the occasion to meet it. My Polks absolutely crushed them, sending bass shockwave attacks within my own walls and their own. They bowed down graciously.
Like in all battles, with victory comes casualties. In this battle of watts and drivers, the subs have been rendered a complete loss. Blown and emit a simple ratt and squeek when played.
Fortunately, the 2000's are on the 10 yr warrenty plan.
My question is this (my apologies for the story)....
I plan on getting the drivers replaced as the warrenty agreement clearly states.
However, I have heard that CC also does trade-in's. Meaning you trade in your equipment for another system, granted, if your new system costs more then what you payed for.
The Polk2000's costed roughly $1150.00.. (includes the 10 yr warrenty).
I have given some thought into purchasing a new set of non-powered Polks, and a 15' Velodyne sub to replace the system.
Assuming you can indeed do trade-in's.... how much MORE to I have to pay for them to honor this? Is it a certain percentage of the total amount spent on your previous purchase?
Any insight would be great.
