    Don't you guys think it would be better to wait and see if Polk corrects this mistake with the customer before forming the lynch mob?

    You aren't even giving them a chance to make it right. Both Kens said they are on this for the OP.

    What's "air ball" mean? Did I miss something?

    Did Polk already refuse to replace the speakers?

    If they did then I apologize and please resume with the lynch mob activity.

    Lynch mob? Not even close.

    So four Polk MW's were just tossed naked into a cardboard box with no packing material surrounding them to prevent movement? That is extremely poor packaging. The shipping clerk/dept. and other responsible parties should come under heavy review and the purchaser should be refunded all charges IMO. I was going to order some RDO tweeters. Maybe I should wait???

    That box looked to be for 6 woofers yet only 4 were ordered. I bet when polk received the box with 6 woofers it had a purposefully made insert that kept the drivers from shifting within the box.
    Either way that is just wrong on so many levels.
    Every one of those should be replaced regardless.

    I probably should not be chiming in, but I was just wondering if it is too late to rename this thread?

    If not, I vote for: "Itchin' to be bitchin."

    It seems this forum has an overabundance of people with that itch. And they sure know how to scratch!

    So I hope you have a great weekend. I hope the weather is not too hot, nor too cold. I hope it is not to windy, nor even too dry. I hope your dehumidifiers do their things and dehumidify you. I hope your pot roast is not overcooked nor undercooked. I hope all is just peachy for you and life does not give you anything else to be itchin' to be bitchin' about.

    "Grey skies are going to clear up, put on a happy face!"

    There have been studies done on the ratio of times parents criticize and rag on, and put their children down versus how often they give them encouragement and praise. It is usually on average more than 10 times to 1. Some children do not hear a single kind word all day long.

    I hope some of you folks can find a cure for the itchin' to be bitchin' blues and instead cheer up and realize that we all make mistakes, even Polk. And this happens even as we try not to mistakes. I hope you can find at least one kind word for Polk this weekend. Good luck!

    I have had Polk speakers now for a little over 1 year and I love them. Each and every day for the past year they have filled my apartment with beauty and magic. Just about every day I take note of how good my stereo now sounds. Thank you Polk Audio!

    Hello @1976doc ,
    I can only say how sorry I am that your order was so thoroughly messed up. What should have been a simple parts request has turned into a disaster. Let me bring this to the attention of Kim Jasper, Polk's customer service manager, and I know he will straighten this situation up promptly. Even though I will send it to him tonight he probably won't be able to solve this until Monday. I want to apologize for the way this has been handled and ask your patience for a couple of days.
    We need to restore your confidence in Polk's customer support.
    Sincerely, Ken Swauger

    Thank you gentlemen for the kind words.

    Here is a great recent example of long standing members still having Polk's back;

    http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/177892/neew-rd0198-1-tweeters-direct-from-polk-no-markings-or-identifiers-on-tweeter-ro-box-how-to-verify#latest

    The reason I posted it here is because this member now has a CS/Polk product issue that could be addressed along with the OP's. It's also an insight for Polk to start labeling the drivers clearly and properly....and to look at ways to prevent the speaker tabs from being broken off prior too or during shipping so that there is no issue when the customer receives the driver.

    FWIW,

    I think part of the trouble comes from the fact that the current ownership doesn't have their name attached like Matt Polk did(does). I never met or spoke with him, but he seems like the kind of man that when he put his name on it, it was going to be the best it could be, and that included support for his customers.

    At the core of any corrective action Polk Audio takes to right the ship, they must go back to the original founding principles that guided Matt, Sandy, and crew from the beginning.

    Product offerings and the times may change, but the core beliefs that built Polk Audio still apply, are still valid today, and would fix things quickly if the people running things would remember the vision of the man who's name still gets stamped on every speaker they sell.
