Time to learn all about Acoustic Research

Last time these came up I bought two of them. Neither worked from battery power. Disappointed. Returned.

Lol. Seeing these is funny for me. I work at the home Depot and these didn’t sell. Corporate probably sold our surplus to whoever to make this sale. I must say though, not a bad speaker, just keep the bass down. Good for a quiet outdoor get together.

Same. Buyer be warned on these. And the sound quality = awful. Any bass and they start cracking.

I picked one up at a yard sale. The sound is pretty good, but the volume isn’t as high as I was hoping.

I used it as a computer speaker when I went to a workshop where I had a small dorm room, and it was good for that.

I had been hoping to use it in my car, which is old enough to not have even an aux port on the stereo, but it isn’t loud enough to compete with the road noise.

“Wireless.” There’s a wire in the picture?

I purchased one of these a while back for an event months in the future. I dumbly didn’t open the thing and try it until the event. It did not work and I was apparently too late to get any relief :frowning:

It got power, we were able to sync, but never got sound to come out of the speaker.

I bought one of these and use it as an outdoor/garage speaker for yard work and it’s not great but it’s not bad. The wireless is a bit of a stretch since you have to connect the transmitter to your audio source if you aren’t connecting it directly, and you need power unless you do the battery thing but at that point, just use an old school boombox that gets radio. There are other versions that are Bluetooth capable and that would be preferable.

I already have a couple of these. I use them to extend music to the back yard and the pool via SONOS. I think they work pretty great for the price. Sound quality is just average but that’s ok for outdoor party or what have you. Combined with SONOS for phone app control they are pretty great.

looks good

Ordered 2 of these. Audio quality has been awful. Woot page clearly states “1 year Warranty by Audiovox.” They were packed away for the off-season. Not wanting to dig them out and understanding they had a 1-year warranty, I waited until now to drag them out and contact Audiovox regarding warranty. So far, their response has been “Sorry. Only 90-day Warranty on refurbs.” despite me having sent a screen shot of the Woot page showing 1-year. Anyone else tried to make an Audiovox Warranty claim with these?

I’m sorry for the frustration. Please use the Support form linked at the top of the page to contact customer support for assistance. Include your Woot username and order number for faster service.

Be sure to include a link to this sale so CS sees the 1-year warranty.

Thanks for the reply. I’d sent an email to customer service prior to posting this and awaiting response. I replied to Audiovox support and pointed out the screenshot showing the 1 year warranty. They apologized (sort of) and said they would offer to “buy out” my warranty, but that could take a while to process and that my best bet would be to seek a refund from Woot. I thought that was pretty crappy of them–unless Woot had some deal struck with them to cover their warranty screw ups… which I highly doubt, but who knows?

I will see what happens with Woot support, but don’t think Woot should be on the hook for this if it was actually a 1-year Manufacturer warranty and not a typo/misprint.
