While running the risk of resurrecting a two-month old thread, I thought it might be of interest for some to hear about what happened to these lovely speakers.
The packing company were helpful and efficient, and appeared to do a fine job etc. These were shipped across country on a pallet, in a robust box the size of a large refrigerator, stuffed with foam and other soft packing, and strapped down to the pallet. At some point during the journey either something very heavy fell onto the package (sufficient to break the pallet straps) or the entire package was slammed by something more robust than itself. The upshot is that the whole package seemingly fell over and sustained varying degrees of damage.
The shipping company (not the packing company) made a series of questionable excuses over a period of a week beyond scheduled delivery, as to why four arranged delivery dates went by without any sign of a truck showing up outside. Frustrating. When it did finally arrive the driver warned of damage incurred before he even opened the truck door.
After sending a ream of photos to the packing-company, they asked I open it up and inspect. Turns out the enclosures themselves luckily managed to escape notable damage, even though there were deep puncture holes in the packaging. On closer inspection it became clear several of the front woofers had suffered compression and one was torn, after (it would seem) the entire package had fallen over.
Keep in mind the package weighed more than 320lbs.
I called Danny to order replacements for the upper 2 woofers on both speakers as they showed the most obvious damage, and upon receipt of those compared the shape and extent of the replacement woofer-surround to the originals. Turned out all had suffered sufficient compression as to warrant a replacement of those remaining, and thankfully the tweeters were undamaged. Danny was super helpful, BTW, and shipped things out rapidly.
I replaced the damaged woofers and these do sound entirely awesome ... just amazing. So it all ends well. Oh! The enclosures themselves are a work of art, IMO.
Last but not least: kudos to the OP for being so helpful in getting them to the packing company.
