    Hi,

    I recently purchased 4x15W philips speakers for my wifes motor.
    They worked beautifully until one day the rears became distorted.

    Once i replaced the old 4w ones the sound is ok again so i'm guessing
    the speakers have developed a fault.

    I havent yet tried the same front speaker in the rear yet but i'm not sure what that would prove as the same speaker was initially ok

    Anyone seen this ?????

    Can they be repaired if damaged ?

    Any help appreciated

    Rgs

    The cost of repairing a speaker usually far outways replacing the whole unit unfortunately. I would try returning the speakers to the supplier. Are the speakers being powered by the head unit? If they are not being driven by an amp you may have a good case for a free replacement or refund.

    They are being powered by the headunit with the standard incar cabling.
    They were bought off ebay for not a lot a while back so i dont suspect its worth chasing.

    It appears strange that both rears show the same issue though no (?)
    i have switched them fro L to R but still same issue
