If you use a ‘passive’ soundbar like one from James or Leon, these speakers have less electronics so they can last up to 16 years or more without issue.

Can a blown speaker fix itself?

Of course, the first question is always “can you fix a blown speaker?” Yes, you can, but it’s rarely recommended to do-it-yourself. DIY speaker fixing is usually quick and dirty and only done on speakers you don’t really care about having perfect quality, such as in your 20 year old car.

How do you know if your speaker is damaged?

Physically inspect the speaker.

A blown speaker can have damage that can be heard with some mechanical movement. If you gently tap on the cone of the speaker it should have a firm drum like sound. If you hear a rattling sound (like a loose snare drum), this is an indicator of a bad speaker.

  3. Lack of Vibration.
  4. Visible Damage.
  5. Infinite Resistance.
  6. Factory Defects.
  7. Playing it Too Loud.
  8. Power Surges.

Can you damage speakers by playing them too loud?

Playing music/audio too loud may cause damage to speakers due to excess heat in the drivers or even mechanical failure of the driver suspension. Speakers have power ratings that, when exceeded (by increasing the amplifier/volume control), will burn/melt the driver coil and damage the speaker.

Depending on the materials they’re made of and the environmental conditions of where the equipment is used, high-quality speakers typically last up to 40-50 years before showing any signs of damage.

Do soundbars deteriorate?

Yes speakers will eventually wear out, but a decent speaker will last a really long time. Any quality speaker will generally last most of your lifetime. General rule of thumb is, if it sounds bad turn it down. If you aren’t hearing distortion/clipping, it’s fine.

Do speakers get worse with age?

Short answer, yes. Speakers do wear out over an extended period of usage. Speaker parts such as the surround, cone, capacitor in the crossover, and ferrofluid in some tweeters degrade over time, and that reduces the overall sound quality of the speakers.

Do speakers get better with age?

Speakers get worse with age. As speakers age, the materials wear out and deteriorate, making the speaker cone vibrations less precise. The spider (spring) loses tension over time and throws the cone off-balance. However, new speakers can sound better after break-in by allowing the spider to stretch.

Do speakers need time to break in?

After about 100 hours of use, your speakers should be broken in. The speaker surround and spider materials loosen up the more the speaker is used. Not all speakers will sound dramatically different after break-in. Some improve only marginally, while others can change dramatically.

Do speakers need to warm up?

The most basic way to run in your speakers is to set them up with your system and use them normally. Usually the speakers will be sufficiently run in after a total of 20-30 hours of normal use and they will often continue to develop and improve for the first hundred or so hours.

Why do old speakers sound better?

Older speakers also had more bass responses than today’s models because the recording industry at the time used less bass-boosting technology. As a result, vintage speakers typically produce more powerful lows and allow listeners to hear the difference between upright bass and double bass.

Should I replace 20 year old speakers?

The only way to answer that question would be to go out and listen to different speakers. If something jumps out at you, take them home and try for a week and compare. Old doesn’t mean obsolete. If they’re in good condition and you’re happy with them, maybe just adding a good sub or two would be all you need.

Are wooden speakers better?

Wood has naturally acoustically helpful properties: it’s naturally non-resonant, so energising a speaker box with musical vibrations will result in minimal distortion. Wood has a high density. It has been used for centuries to help amplify a richer, clearer sound in instruments from guitars to grand pianos.
