I bought them at an authorized dealer which has actually done a great job of taking care of me but the speakers keep blowing. I believe it is the called the "spider"? and it is ripping completely off from the magnet area. The Audison rep brought this last set in and I met him yesterday personally and he said there was a run of these where the press they use was not properly seating them so the glue wouldnt get into the right areas so in cold areas especially they are seeing these problems . Anyway, he said he personally checked the serial numbers on these and they were made after this so called "bad run". What the heck is going on? Has anyone been seeing issues like this with this speaker?

Should I just ask for a different speaker set/brand completely? They are awesome speakers when the perform and the tweeters are unbelievable. The do have the VOCE and Focal line to choose from.

How much power are you running?
What is your Highpass Filter set to?

Sounds like user error only spiders ive ever had tear on me where in some 20buck pyle components. And I was running 140w and a 50hz hipass so they where abused

150w Hertz Amp each side. I am running a stock head unit with a bit ten and running them active. I am not sure what they are clipped at because the installer set it up. Its not me thats for sure.

Set the HPF on the headunit to 80 or 100 hz depending on the sub LPF.
