    Poor design= overheating and poor service from B&W and Apple

    • Written by from MACCLESFIELD

    I got these speakers tuesday, where as they do offfer good sound - it won't be for long as they overheat and effectively shutdown. Basically you can't have them in any shelf or enclosed area or too close to hifi/computer equipment as the right speaker (with the amplifier and power) gets too hot and shuts down. I phoned b&w about this issue they said speak to apple... of course when I try to return the speakers on the website "reason=defective" you get a "contact the manufacturer....
    So my advice is avoid if your going to be using them close to any hot equipement or in an enclosed space - wait till they improve the design to stop thew right speaker getting too hot.
