    Default Warranty for speakers bought off ebay

    I bought a brand-new center channel speaker off ebay, from an unauthorized seller. I guess this means that I don't qualify for the 5 yr manufacturer warranty from Polk. So, what other options do I have for purchasing warranty? Are there any third-party warranty companies that have good feedback from the forum members? Thanks.

    No is all I have. If you were worried about a warranty you should have bought one from a dealer. More then likely you will have no problems with a speaker unless you get stupid and crank it with some bad distorted power.

    Thanks, educatedink. I've heard of squaretrade but not too familiar with them. In any case, that looks like the best option as of now.

    dave, the price was too good to pass up which is why I went with ebay... but, yeah, I know these are made to last, but just wanted to cover myself, just in case.

    I wouldn't worry about it, unless you abuse the speaker, I'm sure it will last a LONG TIME. Otherwise you can always buy replacement drivers, etc from Polk.

    SquareTrade is pretty funny, they sent me an email today to buy a warranty for my 30 year old Polk Mini Monitors

    $9.99 for (1) year. If they can't fix a problem with them then they will refund my purchase price of $53!!!!!

    LOL, That's crazy, those 4.5" Polk Drivers are immpossible to find. It's just so funny.
