Are Subaru speakers more susceptible to water damage than in other cars?
 
I'm new here--hope I'm posting this correctly...

My 2002 Subaru was broken into, driver's window, during a rainstorm. As if it wasn't bad enough that the jerks "liberated" my iPod, power converter, and GPS unit, they also damaged my stereo.

The new stereo the shop put in sounded awful, and it turned out three of the six speakers were now not working (they all worked before the break-in). The adjuster says that the speakers had "long-term water damage", and won't cover their replacement. He says that Subaru doors are put together differently from most cars, and that there is no shielding of the speakers from water damage that might come from water getting in around the windows.

Has anyone else heard this? I'm arguing that even if that is the case, the probability of three speakers going out simultaneously, only by coincidence (i.e. unrelated to getting wet during the break-in) is awfully darn small.

Any info you have would be helpful to me.

Thanks,

Mommaia

I think you just got screwed by an adjuster

Based solely on the OP, I third this motion.

Was there any damage to indicate that the thieves may have attempted to possibly remove the speakers?

I would ask the adjuster for a copy of the case studies, testing, or other scientifically justifiable evidence he is citing.

My last car was an 03 WRX and now I have a Legacy. I have lived in Atlanta and Seattle (both see their fair share of rain) and I have had zero problems with speakers let alone water damage. Sound like they are selling you a crock of BS.
