III. WARRANTY CLAIM PROCESS
End customers MUST initiate a warranty claim with the authorized J.W. Speaker dealer where they purchased the product. J.W. Speaker Corporation does not process end customer warranty claims.

Speaker, and ask them to obtain a Returned Materials Authorization (RMA) number in order to proceed.
J.W. Speaker Corporation has built a strong reputation over many years by providing high- quality, premium engineered lighting solutions to the automotive aftermarket. However, external advertising that undercuts our products’ market prices has been shown to negatively affect the goodwill of our brand, damaging our reputation in the process. Therefore, in order to protect our brand and support distributors and re-sellers who have made investments in inventories and in marketing and promoting our products, we’ve established a Minimum Advertised Price Policy (the “MAP Policy”). This unilateral MAP Policy applies to J.W. Speaker products purchased and sold by U.S.-based automotive re-sellers. Click here to review the full policy.
