Sonus Faber Driver Blowouts


I have a pair of Sonus Faber Cremona Monitor M speakers and had to replace the driver in one of them after 3 or 4 years. Now a 3 years later, according to the dealer, the same speaker requires another new driver. Has anyone
else had this problem with these speakers or other Sonus Faber speakers? I am wondering if something in the speaker wiring is blowing out the drivers. The dealer stated the driver wires were simply wrapped around the post rather than soldered so he soldered the wires onto the post, but still no sound. I live in an apartment with neighbors all around, so I do not play music loud. There must be something causing the drivers to blow. Any suggestions?  The drivers are $650 and to put new drivers in every 3 years does not seem normal or acceptable.

The main cause of early driver failure is too much "dirty" power from the amplifier. In other words, playing at volume levels that are too high for the amp that is being asked to drive the speakers.
Drivers are rarely damaged by too much "clean" power.

Simply put, it sounds like you may be playing the speakers too loud for the amplifier that you are using. You may need a more powerful amplifier.
probably too much DC into speaker. 2...3V enough to fry.
Speakers are 10 years or so old a 2 way puts a lot of stress on midwoofer toss in modern adhesives foams etc many are failing and that maybe a issue I have not noticed any longevity in modern design and it seems that many modern loudspeakers etc are already failing.  I have drivers and loudspeakers from 1930s up. In my experience modern designs are not holding up as well and I have had many modern transducers fail while the old ones just keep working. And sad thing about many modern drivers is limited repair-ability most designed to be binned if any issues.
Thank you for the comment, however, as stated I do not play music loud since I live in an apt near neighbors. There are occasions where loud noises do occur. For example, if watching a movie and there is an explosion there is definitely an increase in volume noise and there is a lot of sound distortion. I have an Anthem MRX700 receiver with 120 watts per 7 channels and 8 ohms. The SF Monitor M are 40 -150 watts and 4 ohms. Shouldn’t this receiver be powerful enough for these speakers? If not then is there a booster of sorts (pre amp or pre pro) available to boost the power of the receiver?
If you're clearly hearing distortion you're overdriving the hell out of that amp and that's almost certainly the cause of your problems. Plus, I seriously doubt that amp is delivering 120 watts to a 4 ohm load. It's probably much less than that. AV receivers aren't well suited to challenging loads and that's what those speakers are. Your only option is a power amp that will deliver clean power into at least 4 ohms. 
According to this review, your receiver puts out 80 watts per channel in 7 channel mode:

This sounds like you are asking too much from your receiver for these speakers. These speakers may not be the best choice for HT applications.
I believe those dynamic peaks are what is burning out the voice coils of your drivers. All it takes is an instantaneous spike to send too much current through those voice coils to fry them.

It would seem that your choices are to:
a) simply keep replacing drivers every few years.
b) use some form of dynamic compression during video use.
c) buy a more powerful amplifier
d) buy speakers that can handle large dynamic swings.
I agree with others, find a stereo amplifier that has enough current to reach its rated output into a 2 ohm load.   Generally, while your Anthem is a fine surround sound processor, an outboard two channel amplifier will have a much bigger transformer and be able to deliver much more power at peaks.  
You may need to set the home theater to small for mains.
