I just got my M22's from the factory outlet and noticed on one the vinyl on the front edge, approx 2" from the bottom is blistering and started to crack.

The other one has what looks like vinyl starting to peel at the bottom back corner.

Anybody ever have this happen to them??

I saw on my M22s a VERY SLIGHT corner that may look like it was peeling, but I couldn't tell for sure. Other than that, my M22s are perfect in appearance.

I'm Curious, as to why you made this post.......from what I understand, the factory outlet speakers are usually reported to be perfect.

When you buy from the factory outlet, you do run the risk of getting (by chance) a minor blemish, don't you think?

I don't think a blemish like this is normal. I would contact Axiom. Can you take some pics?

I posted this because I am curious if this is common. A minor blemish is what is on the speaker front edge, but I am wondering if the adhesive is going to slowly come loose and considering its only a week it will look like a 1981 plymouth reliant with peeled paint in no time.

It appears like the adhesive did not stick and its bubbled...but there seems to be a crack in it.

The vinyl coming off at the edge is not a minor blemish, but again maybe not the best glue job from what I can see.

Call Axiom, even for the Factory Direct it is not normal by all accounts.

My FO M22s had a very minor defect in the vinyl on a bottom corner of one of them, only noticeable if you pick it up and inspect looking for a flaw.

LT61, I'd guess the poster is concerned that this blemish falls outside the definition of minor. ctown, I'd contact Axiom directly with your concerns. What's happening may, indeed, fall outside Axiom's acceptable level of non-perfection for outlet speakers.

Here is the one speaker that looks like the vinyl is starting to come loose at the edge.

This is the blemish. There is a kind of air bubble under it. It doesnt look that bad, but I can feel the vertical crack and fear it will start to peel or crack further if not sealed somehow.
