Sonicelectronix usually has good CS & reputation. I have personally used the RMA process for one of my Boston SPZ's MID a couple of months ago and it couldn't be easier.

Just go to your order history then click on the item you want to RMA and go from there. If there is truly a problem with the mid, they will send you a new one.

Test the drivers with a meter. If you don't have one, or don't know how to use it, just use a 9v battery and a pair of short wires to touch the leads on the mids (Disconnet it from the amp and crossover first!). It should make a loud popping sound as you touch the battery leads to the speaker. If it makes noise, the driver is not dead. If it is silent, put the 9v battery to your tounge to make sure your battery isn't dead. Now you know if the driver is dead or not.

If the driver is good plug it back into the crossover, disconnet the tweets, and (disconnet the crossover from the amp) put the battery leads on the inputs for the crossover. The mids should make the same popping noise. If it dosen't, now you know the driver is good but the x-over is bad. Test the other side the same way.

I have two 6.5 XR mids sitting in my garage you can have them if you pay shipping, I will make sure they work tomorrow. The frames have some notches cut in them from a previous install but they should work fine. Make sure it is not your crossover first. PM me if you want one or both.
