Their warranty states,
Elemental Designs warrants this product to be free from defects in original materials and workmanship, under intended use, for a period of sixty (60) months, from the date of original purchase. Using this equipment for any purpose in any environment it was not designed for voids warranty (ripped spiders, burned voice coils, melted/torn joints, ripped surround, cracked cone, and ripped or cut tinsels are clear signs of this), this includes input of power not recommended for usage. Taking the speaker or electronics apart in any way shape or form is will result in a automatic loss of warranty. If warranty work is needed, because of sub par construction or materials, during the warranty period, Elemental Designs under it's determination and discretion, replace or repair the defective merchandise at zero charge (customer will be expected to cover shipping cost back to Elemental Designs.)
If they talked about a change in their forum, it was never reflected on the website. Now if you buy an amp from them, that's a one year warranty but a finished product reads to me as being five. I'd press them on this and if they waffled I'd then contact the Iowa AG's office and let them know. Seems like fraud to me.
You can't retroactively change a warranty. You can make changes for current and future purchases and that's it.
