ALL SHIPMENTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED WITH A SPEAKER REPAIR FORM Speaker Repair Form, PDF (link above), can be
filled in online and printed to include with your Speaker (s).
Recommended Packing Procedure for Your Speaker to be Shipped in for Service:
Plywood, with (speaker bolts or screws that are long enough and heavy enough to hold the weight of the speaker). The speaker should be placed face or cone down, then bolted or screwed. This packaging works well if carton is strong enough to hold it in. I've received speakers shipped in mounted to plywood, but the wood has ripped thru the sides of carton, or speaker let loose causing bent frames(upcharge) or worst non repairable units. For sure resulting in a refused damage claim by UPS or FEDEX, USPS is a totally different subject.
PLEASE DO NOT SHIP IN WOOD CARTON, IF YOU DO SO, YOU MUST PURCHASE A RETURN LABEL, NO EXCEPTIONS! I WILL HOLD CARTON UNTIL YOU DO SO.
DO NOT use PEANUTS unless speaker is placed in a plastic bag and tied so they do not get into speaker basket, transformers, plugs or cone damaging more, like dustcap, rings and suspension.
Cardboard Cartons should be double wall and large enough for speaker to sit flat on bottom. NOT riding on side or on angle in the carton.
Double Box if a single wall carton is used, use peanuts, bubblewrap, or newspaper between the cartons, floating the speaker carton in the middle of larger, which is the best.
... When you think your done, pick up carton and shake it, if any movement, pack more in so nothing is moving around.
My method is to wrap speakers in a sheet of cardboard long and wide enough to go around the speaker front over the back, transformers to the side, NOT wrapped by cardboard, then tape it at seam, place in tall kitchen garbage bag( without garbage)! and then pack it tight so nothing moves.This gives and extra layer of cardboard on bottom and sides. You can float with bubble, peanuts or foam if you like on the bottom,sides and top as an extra layer of cushion.
The packing material could be anything like newspaper balled up, bubble wrap, and even peanuts if you have to. But again, tight so no movement occurs when carton is picked up and shaken. Hope this helped, regards, Nick.
