After bragging on my new Acoustic Research AW871 yesterday in another thread my wife calls me at work and told me a big gust of wind came up, broke the umbrella, knocking the table over, sending one of the speakers right into the pool!! I just got these things 3 days ago!!!
Fortunately they are low voltage so no one got hurt and the speaker came unplugged before it hit the pool, even though my wife did not realize this and it gave her a good scare.
I am trying to bring it back to life, but have had no luck yet. The other one hit the deck and is still working fine. Maybe if I can get the electronics dry out they will work again, the speakers themselves look fine.
So if anyone purchases these they are faily light weight and you may want to secure them in some fashion so they don't end up in the pool!!!
