SPE is not responsible for any payment agreement between Distributor / Dealer and Customer.


Warranty Terms

For a period of two (2) years from the invoice date, the Distributors warrant in the EU, at authorized laboratories, the free repair of manufacturing defects and the free replacement of defective components.
Each power MOSFET is guaranteed for the first 3 months and for a single replacement.

The warranty is not applicable in the cases specified below.
The Purchaser only has to pay all the shipping expenses in both directions.
Distributors outside the EU must comply with the current laws of the Country in which operate. If there is conflict with EU rules, they must post on their web site the relevant, modified “Warranty Terms”.


Customers should address requests for warranty service work to the Distributor/Dealer where they made their purchase.
As part of their reseller agreement with SPE, they are fully responsible for service support.
If the Distributor/Dealer has closed down and if he is not replaced, SPE will be directly responsible for warranty service at their factory in Rome. The shipping expenses to and from SPE will then be paid by the customer. Any repair requests to other dealers / repairer will be subject to specific direct negotiations between the customer and the dealer / repairer.
In order to not invalidate the warranty service, the original Purchaser must complete the warranty registration card, and send it to SPE within 30 days from the date of purchase.
Unless otherwise agreed, the products will be delivered ex-works from the factory of the seller.
The delivery, even in the event of a return for repair, is understood done with the delivery of the goods to the carrier specified by the purchaser or, failing that, to the carrier chosen by SPE or the Distributor/Dealer.
The products will travel at the risk of the purchaser even if, at the request of the same one or for other causes, SPE should carry out transport or choose the carrier.
If the original Purchaser finds some defects after having received the equipment, he must immediately notify the Distributor/Dealer of the defects found by sending the completed REPAIR FORM. Replacement of the amplifier may be offered by SPE in exceptional circumstances only and at SPE’s complete discretion. However, no replacement will be offered after 21 days of original purchase.
In case of a purchase of a used amplifier, in order to retain the warranty’s validity, it is necessary to notify SPE of the following data:
  • Document for the second purchase (used)
  • Invoice for the original purchase
  • Serial number (s/n) of equipment

Replacement of equipment in these circumstances is not an option.
In any case the warranty period shall be as specified from the date of original purchase, and not from any subsequent purchase. However, the limitation for MOSFET remains as outlined above, ie. the warranty period for the LDMOS device/s is limited to three months only. If the LDMOS has been damaged due to incorrect usage, it is not covered under warranty.

Whenever the date of the first sale is not well specified, the date of shipping from SPE to the Distributor/Dealer will be considered the start of the warranty period.
The warranty does not apply either if the certificate of the first purchase (invoice) is missing, the s/n is undecipherable / falsified or to any defect that SPE determines is due to the following:
  1. Improper maintenance or repair by persons not authorised by SPE to carry out such work, including the installation of parts or accessories that do not conform to the quality and specifications of the original parts.
  2. Acts of nature such as lightning, storm & tempest, moisture or water intrusion, fire.
  3. Misuse, abuse, neglect or improper installation, user’s manual non-observance.
  4. Carelessness, accidental or intentional damage.
  5. In the manual of the transceiver used it is clearly written that it cannot be used with a solid state amplifier.

In addition and more specifically possible damage caused by incorrect usage such as:
  • Exceeding power ratings of antennas, insufficient impedance transformers and insufficient baluns.
  • RFI in the shack.
  • Low gate isolation due to the spike of the transceiver.
  • Repeated input overdriving alarms.
  • Repeated high SWR alarms.

SPE warrants only manufacturing defects and defects in the materials used NOT inherent and consequent damages.
It is mandatory, when sending SPE equipment to be repaired, to enclose:
  • Invoice of the original purchase.
  • Document of the second purchase (if any).

Particular agreements between retailer and Purchaser or particular obligations imposed in other countries are matters for the local retailer and not for SPE.
In the event of dispute Rome’s court of competent jurisdiction will apply.

The Purchaser declares his acceptance of the above Warranty Terms.
