I've had two or three replaced so far. And I don't listen to music that loud
(or maybe I'm deaf). I've heard a lot of people with speaker problems.

To add to Rob's input, there is a way to turn off the Bose acustic settings.
I'm not sure if that would make a difference, but I wouldn't replace just one
speaker anyway (unless it were the exact same speaker).
