    It's okay, but what is speaker information, and why do you capitalize speaker?

    Tarheel,

    This seems very unlikely. If the product is a speaker, it's one example of the category "speaker". That isn't a proper noun and should not be capitalized.

    Re: mail us

    Goes is right, of course. If it's the brand name you capitalize that, but you don't capitalize the name of the product itself. Examples:

    Bose speakers
    Ford trucks
    Hershey's candy bars
    Swiss Miss instant cocoa

    That is just a few of thousands of possibilities.
