This is the same problem when they were shipped from Vanns a few years ago. The RC-10's and RC LCR are packed very well with two pieces of thick foam covering the speakers and no damage likely to happen. The RC-70's have separate foam pieces in the top and bottom corners and a long pieces of thin foam to cover the sides. That's fine for shipping to a warehouse in bulk like Fry's but not for individual box shipping for residential deliveries.
Yeah I know it's the same problem. And it's just as stupid now as it was then when people were posting the same complaints about damaged towers and refusal to double box from Vanns.

The R3 inherited the trickle down tech of the Veritas V2.0R with the three way design (dual opposing mids with front firing woofer+tweeter) and sound field management with the ability to configure bipole vs dipole and also change the volume of the side firing mids (with the option of even turning them off for full monopole operation).

But I'm sure they are still nice. Just not quite that close to the RC-R.
I saw your post from a while back that said as much. So that was my expectation going in. I figure for $100 that it's a worthwhile experiment. Though, if it's a big improvement over the RC-10s, I might really start jonesin for some Rs. Haha

They won't double box. Their solution was to tell me to call UPS and ask them to put fragile stickers on it. I did, and UPS said they don't do that.

Going to try to push them to give me 50% refund at this point.
you are not alone my previews towers speakers the Veritas and RC were returned twice, they were all beat up., is just ridiculous and the worst part is that we are in Christmas.

You're totally right Batpig, my mistake. It was the C-R3, not the R1. Thanks for the correction.
