Tweeter issues with Event Precision monitors.

Has anyone been having trouble with their Event Precision monitors. My left tweeter has blow out twice and I just wanted to know if this is happening to others also.
BTW.
Event's customer service and parts dept. has been awsome!

I recently switched from Mackie 824’s to the Event ASP 8’s.
My mixes are translating way better, the difference is pretty
drastic. I’ve been remixing a bunch of old songs
and I’m hearing things I never knew were there (things that
need to be fixed). I really like these speakers, but…
I’m a little worried about the build quality. Lately the right
speaker has developed a rattle/buzzing on the back panel.
Bass guitar triggers it the most. It happens at low listening
levels. I emailed Event three times and no one responded.
I’ve temporarily solved the problem by sticking a few business
cards in the groove between the back panel and the sides of
the speaker. So far, so good. I still wouldn’t wanna go back
to the Mackies though, they made everything sound way
better than it really was. I could build a nice size house
out of the cdr’s that I had to go through to get a mix where
I wanted it. It would be a plastic house though.

Did you try tightening any screws that are visible? I haven't had to do it to my Events but things can get a little loose sometimes. I routinely tighten up my Marshall and bass cabs to keep any rattles away. Maybe you should try the same with your monitors.

I tightened every screw, plus the allen bolt. Nothing helped except the business
cards. Weird.

Gear interested
 

i recently got my asp6's. i also had to go back and fix old mixes. absolutely love them, but last night while programming my v-synth, i heard weirdness comming from the left tweeter. i was programming some really high-pitched, resonant ambient type sounds and narrowed it down to vibrations within the speaker. so i decided to push em a little harder and see if it was the tweeter or the case. the harder i pushed the more rattling i could hear, from both speakers. they are definetly not built very well.

Not experiencing this here. I've run them for almost 2 years now and no rattles or tweeter problems.
