    Default Polk Direct Warranty Change

    Polk has changed the warranty on refurbs from 5yrs to 2yrs for their speakers. Not sure when this happened, as i just bought my A7's from them in January and was told they have a 5yr warranty.

    Nothing is valid unless it's in writing.

    That said, the economy may be putting a pinch on Polk [I don't know.....just saying.....] and they may be acting accordingly. At least you know up front what you are dealing with.

    As far as your situation is concerned.......contact Polk CS. Hear it from the horses mouth.

    When i bought these i was told directly by Polk CS (the horses mouth) that i have a 5 year warranty. I guess i should of requested this in writing though.

    I don't have an issue.
    But i will call them again to make sure that i still have the 5yr warranty.

    I wouldn't sweat it. Polk has the best reputation that I know of when it comes to CS. I was just thinking off the top of my head when I wrote that response. The economy has hit all factors of business that I have been in contact with. Sign o' the times I guess?

    Or maybe just an executive decision.

    I mean it does suck that they dropped 3yrs from the warranty.
    But at the same time it won't prevent me from buying from Polk Direct.

    I am not to worried about it, i have had the RT55i's for almost ten years, naver had a problem with them once, they still sound just as good as the day i got them + IMO if there is going to be a major problem i think it would happen in the first year. also with that said im sure they would hook you up with what ever you needed to fix the problem with little cost if any at all.

    Yeah i'm not really worried at all to be honest. Just the fact that i was told i have a 5yr warranty, and now it's changed, is of course going to make me want to call and make sure my 5yr is still intact.

    I'll still be buying from Polk Direct, no question about that. :)

    I'd have to guess that only applies to new purchases. If you bought something from Polk Direct before the change, you probably still have the 5 year warranty. The 2 year warranty is probably only applied to products purchased after the change.

    I may be wrong on that, but just my 2 cents.

    Well yeah that would make the most sense of course, i agree.
    But like i said, i'll still call to find out, that will have to wait until Monday though.
    I have to call them anyways to inquire about some A9's, might as well kill two birds with one stone. ;)

    Thanks for pointing out the change metal. I will have to call on Monday to find out. I just purchased my LSi 9's and 7's on 2/7 and the eBay listing said 5 years but the LSiC I ordered yesterday only said 2 years.

    I didn't read all this *too* closely, but I think this might actually be a clarification and extension of the Ebay warranty policy instead of a reduction:

    http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...light=warranty

    I believe their terms used to indicate a 180 day warranty for Ebay refurbs, which now appear to be 2 years. It was *not* 5 years before, even though their documentation seemed to indicate it was.

    Sort of on subject, but did anyone notice that Polk Direct has over 180 listings on e-bay right now? About a year ago, e-bay had about 300 - 350 total listings. Now, over 700 listings.

    Sign of the times, I guess. Polk is selling more direct product (they can't have 180 defective/returned products at any given time) and others must be selling their surplus. Just guessing on these observations.

    Eric at Polk CS clarified this (on this board) not too long ago. The warranty wording on the eBay site was unclear. He verified that in fact the refurb speakers had the full 5 year warranty, but that the other electronics (iSonic, etc) had 180 days. I recall the site was updated with direct clarification of the terms showing 5 years for refurb speakers. I'll see if I can find that thread.

    However it is clear from the warranty statment now that it has been reduced to 2 years, but before that change it would be 5 years not 180 days (although I'm still not sure why my Lsi9's had that 180 day sticker on it. :()

    Here is the bottom line on refurbished Polk goods:
    Electronics (e.g. I-Sonic, subwoofer amplifiers, miDock, tuners, etc.) have a 180 day warranty.
    Home speakers have a 5 year warranty (original warranty).
    Keep in mind this thread was from Dec and would no longer be relevant for any new purchases from Polk Direct since they meade the change.

    While it might be nice to have a warrenty, I wouldn't worry too much. My speakers are 19years old & still going strong.

    Refurbished speakers are speakers that were returned, and have been certified to be in good working order as is, and may contain some minor cosmetic imperfections.

    Re-manufactured speakers, are speakers that have had drivers, or crossover parts replaced to bring them back to new condition. They may also contain minor cosmetic blemishes though.

    Is it possible that such a change in policy is just an addendum to the fact that Polk is now providing a link to the Polk Direct ebay site above?

    And that it doesn't make a lot of business sense to offer the same warranty as they do on store bought/i-net NEW products as on Direct purchases!

    Just a thought?

    FWIW, I received a letter in the mail this past week from Kenneth Swauger of Polk. The purpose was to reassure me that my pair of RTi10 speakers purchased almost a year ago from Tweeter would still be covered under Polk's full warranty, even though Tweeter has since closed its doors. Honestly, I wasn't concerned much about it, as I figured that if a dealer went away, the manufacturer would still be there. I guess enough people were worried about this that Polk thought it would be good to offer this reassurance. In any case, the letter was unexpected, but nice to receive. Good CS.:)

    I assume when you say "Direct" you are referring to Polkdirect on eBay and not internet direct sales in general, right?

    Your right, it does not make a lot of business sense to sell what amounts to refurb products at the same time as their NIB product and still offer the same warranty, esp when the refurb product (esp the speakers) are essentially NIB as it is.
    I think a 2 year warranty on what is sold as 'Refurb' is still reasonable enough for me. After all, warranties cover manufacturer defects, 2 years on a speaker should be long enough to uncover most of those defects, no?

    You're correct- the warranty for refurbished products (purchased from our eBay direct store or directly from us) has changed to 2 years for in-home speakers. Refurb electronics was always 6 months (180 days).

    We are going to make a sticky about the warranty questions.

    Good grief...A 5 year warranty on a refurb item goes way beyond what is normal for the industry. 2 years is an excellent warranty under theses circumstances. While offering the full 5 years on a refurb item sounds nice...it is not necessarily a good business practice if Polk is to be around for the long term.

    Two years is most certainly still great, especially considering the prices in which the refurbs sell for, no complaints here! I look forward to purchasing more items from Polk Direct.

    Like i have said i have no concern. My A9's are refurbs if there was something wrong with them it was fixed right? to me i feel i will never have a problem with them, And if i do i will just fix them with polks help if need be.

    I also look at it this way, i am the one that hooked them up, and i am also the one that controls the volume. so some of the responsibility on how long they last is on me.
