Had the fairing off, I noticed the left one was muffled and distorted. Swapped wires same thing, so I figure its blown.

Anyone else? Lifetime warranty, so I'm not terribly concerned but for the inconvenience.

Oops, sorry! I had the fairing off to install an oil temp gauge. I took the speaker and the underlying support frame off because I was considering putting a speaker cone on it, but decided not to, and reinstalled the speaker. Thats when I noticed it sounded horrible, and assumed it was blown.

When I got the replacement speaker, I saw that I had not put a screw from the mounting bracket all the way back in, and also a plastic washer had squished out such that they were touching the speaker.

I dremeled a bit off the washer and tightened down the screw and it was all good.

Sent the new speaker back.

Thanks for the reply, I pulled my faring this evening and found both my speakers are blown. Going to call biketronics tomorrow. Did a little testing and found that everything was hooked up correctly, I unhooked both speakers and hooked up a pair of alpine 5x7's I had on the shelf and it sounded good. Will see what comes of the warranty. Only had these speakers for a few months.
