Shipping Policy

Spoke LLC and Spoke LLC vendors carefully inspect all shipments. Customers must inspect their shipments upon delivery prior to signing the release. Customers who will not be signing for their order when it is delivered, are responsible to see that the person signing has read and understands Spoke LLC Terms and Conditions.

Important

You or your receiving agent MUST check your order immediately for accuracy and possible concealed damage. Undiscovered damage claims not noted on the delivery receipt cannot be made with a carrier or Spoke LLC. NO EXCEPTIONS! When we ship we insure proper packaging. Protect your investment! It is your responsibility to check your shipment. Your signature on a shipping receipt is a legal release of claim for damage unless noted at the time of receipt.

An independent shipping contractor such as UPS, FedEx or a commercial trucking company will deliver the order. When the shipment arrives the driver will ask you to sign for the delivery. This is a legal document stating that the package is being delivered in good condition without damage and that the customer is waiving any additional claim from the shipper. Before signing, inspect the package(s) closely on all six sides. Note any box damage including scuffs, dents, tears, punctures or creases on the delivery receipt. If there is anything unusual with the package, the customer has the right to open it to inspect the contents. If the driver is unwilling to wait while you inspect all of the items, you may mark on the delivery receipt “Concealed Damage Possible”.

If there is damage to the shipment, then you must refuse the package and contact Spoke LLC immediately.

For Local Pickups

We are committed to your product satisfaction. If there is an issue with the image, image quality or other issues with product appearance they MUST be dealt with upon initial delivery. Spoke LLC is not responsible for replacing or refunding speaker pictures based on image quality or product appearance and any issues of such must be discussed during the pickup period. 

Cancellation Policy

To cancel your order, please call during our normal business hours and speak with your sales representative or someone in our Customer service department. Provided your order has not yet been processed, and your credit card has not been charged there is no fee. If your order has already been processed and/or your card was charged, there is a 5% cancellation fee deducted from your refund. If any portion of your order has shipped, a 15% restocking fee will be deducted from your refund. The refund will occur within 48 hours of the receipt of the cancellation or the return of all products that have shipped.

Many of our products are custom built or special ordered. If you need to cancel an order for any of these products there is a cancellation fee, even if the item has not shipped. The cancellation fee will vary depending on the product complexity.  If there was a discount given on an order, that amount will get deducted from the refund. For example, if your order had a free shipping discount we are not going to credit you for shipping charges. And we will not refund you for parts that were bought as part of a system or build.

Return Policy

Merchandise, except for products that were specially ordered and/or assembled for the customer, may be returned within 30 days of the receipt of the product.

Before returning items, it is necessary to contact customer support and fill out the Customer Return Form. The Customer shall be responsible for the return of any unused product and agrees to use only reputable carriers capable of providing proof or delivery and insurance for the value of the shipment.

You will receive a refund or credit towards your account, provided the merchandise is returned in the original packaging, in new and resalable condition with the original blank warranty cards, manuals, and all accessories. Spoke LLC requires at minimum 24 hours to inspect a returned item prior to issuing a refund or credit. If any component of the returned product is missing, the return procedure is breached and Spoke LLC may reject the return or may choose to impose additional charges for replacement of the missing component.

Warranty Policy

Spoke LLC's One-Year Limited Warranty Policy applies to all devices and accessories that are manufactured by Spoke LLC (each, a “Product”), whether such Products purchased from Spoke LLC or from one of our authorized retailers or resellers. In addition, Spoke LLC offers an Extended Warranty Policy (in the United States only), which may extend warranty coverage on all such Products.

Spoke LLC is based in the U.S., and our warranty policy pertains only to products sold in the United States. 

One-Year Limited Warranty Policy

Spoke LLC offers a one (1) year limited warranty (“Warranty”) on all Products. This Warranty is valid and enforceable only if you purchased a new Product from us or from one of our authorized retailers or resellers in a jurisdiction in which we sell Products and the Product was originally sold to you in its original, sealed packaging. Do not use a Product until you have read the terms of this Warranty.

Coverage. This Warranty is your exclusive remedy for defective workmanship or materials in your Product. Spoke LLCwarrants that the hardware will be free from manufacturing defects and, under its intended and ordinary consumer use, will function substantially in accordance with Spoke LLC's technical specifications or documentation (“Warranted Functionality”) for a period of one (1) year from the date your Product was delivered to you or picked up by you (the “Warranty Period”).

How To Start a Warranty Claim.

To get a Warranty claim started:

  1. Contact Customer Care. Visit our Customer Care site. There, you’ll find specific instructions about how to begin a Warranty claim. Please have your order number, the Product serial number, and your proof of purchase handy.

  2. Backup and Reset your Product. Before you ship your Product back to us for a Warranty claim, please remove any peripheral items that may be plugged into your Product, backup any content (including photos, videos, and software) and/or data on your Product, and factory reset it, if applicable. Visit our Customer Care for help performing these steps.

  3. Prepare your Product for Shipment. Pack your Product in the shipping materials (e.g., a shipping box or shipping label) we provide you to deliver your Product back to us. Once we receive your Product, we’ll determine if it has a defect or malfunction covered by our Warranty.

If we replace your Product, we won’t transfer any content or data from your original Product to your replacement Product. 

Warranty Service. If you start a warranty claim and we confirm that your Product does not perform according to its Warranted Functionality, we’ll replace, repair or refund it (in our discretion). If we replace or repair it, we’ll make sure it performs substantially in accordance to our Warranted Functionality. We may replace or repair it using new, refurbished, or remanufactured hardware and materials (in our discretion). If we replace or repair your Product, we warrant that the replacement or repaired Product will be materially free of faulty materials or workmanship for the remainder of your original Warranty Period or for 30 days after the replacement or repaired Product is delivered to you, whichever is later.

Transfer. This Warranty is solely for you as the end-user of your Product. You cannot assign or transfer this Warranty to anyone, including a subsequent purchaser, friend, or family member.

Items Outside of this Warranty. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Warranty does not cover (and Spoke LLC is not responsible for):

  1. Excluded Products, which include (a) resold Products, (b) Products purchased outside the jurisdictions where Spoke LLC sells Products, (c) Products not purchased directly from us or one of our authorized retailers or resellers, (d) hardware or accessories not manufactured by Spoke LLC,  even if bundled or sold with Spoke LLC hardware, or (e) software, (including the firmware and any applications installed on your Product), whether licensed from Spoke LLC or any third party, which may be covered by the applicable version of the Manufacturers software license.

  2. Misuse of Products, which includes (a) damage to the Product or loss of the Product resulting from an accident, theft, improper storage, misuse or abuse, mishandling, neglect, physical or electric modifications, exposure to water or other liquids, exposure to moisture, exposure to extreme conditions (e.g., heat, dirt or sand), (b) use with an unsuitable product not sold or licensed by Spoke LLC (c) use with inadequate ventilation, (d) use by children under 14, (e) circumvention of our security mechanisms, (f) reverse engineering, (g) defects or damage from viruses or other software problems introduced into the Product, (h) defects or damage caused by unauthorized repairs, and (i) any other use that is not in compliance with the recommendations in this document, our online materials, related documentation, and other user materials made available to you. We presume any cosmetic damage (e.g., scratches) resulted from misuse, abuse, or failure to operate the Product as instructed.

  3. Wear and Tear of Products, which includes damage resulting from normal wear and tear and normal depletion of parts (e.g., batteries) unless occurring due to defective workmanship or materials in the hardware of your Product. For example, only batteries that leak or exhibit fully charged capacity below a certain threshold of the actual rated capacity will be considered defective for purposes of this Warranty.

Voided Warranty. This Warranty will be void and your Product will be ineligible for authorized repair (even for a fee) if you (a) circumvent any of our security mechanisms, (b) resell your Product, (c) remove the serial number or any legal notices from the Product, (d) use the Product in violation of any laws or your agreements with us, or (e) violate the How to Start a Warranty Claim instructions in this Warranty or any instructions provided by our Customer Care team.

Disclaimer and Limited Liability. Nothing in this section will limit or exclude liability that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law. For our International Friends, that means this section may not apply to you. Please refer to the special terms below for provisions that may apply in your jurisdiction.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS THE ONLY EXPRESS WARRANTY SPOKE LLC PROVIDES FOR THE PRODUCTS, AND THE ABOVE REMEDY IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SPOKE LLC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, THE WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SPOKE LLC IS NOT LIABLE TO YOU: (a) UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR LOSS OF, DAMAGE TO, COMPROMISE OR CORRUPTION OF DATA), OR (b) FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES THAT MAY BE INCURRED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS OR THIS WARRANTY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY LOSS OF DATA OR ANY FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION STORED IN THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER OR NOT SPOKE LLC HAS BEEN ADVISED OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH LOSSES ARISING. YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SPOKE LLC’S TOTAL LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS OR THIS WARRANTY WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU ACTUALLY PAID SPOKE LLC, OUR AFFILIATES OR OUR AUTHORIZED RETAILERS FOR THE PRODUCTS.

If your jurisdiction gives you any implied warranty, then to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the duration of such implied warranty is limited to the Warranty Period. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so this limitation may not apply to you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Any customer support we elect to provide is provided “as-is” and without warranty of any kind.

Your Rights. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights based on your jurisdiction. This Warranty does not affect the rights you’re provided by your jurisdiction concerning the sale of consumer goods. International Friends, see our special terms for more details.

No Modification. No employees or representatives of Spoke LLC (or its affiliates or any third party) are authorized to modify this Warranty. If any term of this Warranty is held to be unenforceable, the remaining terms of this Warranty will remain in full force and effect.

Repairs Outside of Warranty. If you purchased a new Product from us or from one of our authorized retailers or resellers and your Product is not covered by this Warranty, please contact our Customer Care team. While we cannot accept a return or exchange, we may be able to send you a quote for repairing your Product. Most importantly, we want to know what happened and make sure you’re happy with your experience. To that end, we reserve the right to keep your Product if you elect not to pay for a repair and we determine (in our discretion) the Product is a safety hazard or cannot be used as intended without repair.

No Insurance. This Warranty is not insurance and does not cover any perils (e.g., fire, theft or loss). At this time, we do not offer insurance. If you purchase a separate insurance policy for your Product from a third-party insurer, please coordinate reimbursement directly with the third party providing you insurance.
