Speakers are an integral part of any home sound system. Even if you buy the most expensive speakers, if you don’t maintain them properly, you won’t be able to enjoy a great sound experience when listening to music you love or watching your favorite movies. Even cheap or midrange speakers can last you a long time if you take care of them well.
EMCOR has some simple tips for speakers maintenance!
Firstly, dust affects the performance of your speakers a lot. Strategically place them somewhere dust cannot easily settle into the interiors of the speakers. You can use a vacuum cleaner to clean out the dust or use a blower to blow out dust from inside. For best results, used compressed air.
Cleaning your speakers regularly is important, but refrain from using liquid cleaners as these damage the amplifiers.
Avoid placing your speakers near anything magnetic. This would damage your speakers’ built-in electromagnet. Another thing to avoid is static electricity.
Heat is also one thing that can cause damage to your speakers. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as most speakers may not have a proper thermal design. If your speakers have a vent hole, make sure that this is not blocked. When your speakers are going to be used for a long time, it would also help to keep them near a fan.
Finally, make sure that your cables and wires are plugged into the right channels. Follow the proper plugging procedure. Wrong jacks plugged into the wrong channels can cause damage to your sound system.
