Keep your speakers functional for years with these tips

How to protect your speakers from wear and tear

If you’re an avid music listener, you know that having a good set of speakers can drastically enhance your listening experience. But what happens when your speakers start to wear out? Replacing them is a costly affair. Speakers don’t have to be replaced just because they’ve been used for a while. In fact, with the right tips and tricks, you can keep them in perfect condition for years. Today, we explore some ways to protect your speakers from proper storage techniques to cleaning and maintenance tips.

Keep them away from sunlight and water

When it comes to protecting your speakers from wear and tear, it is important to keep them away from sunlight and water. Sunlight can damage the speaker’s finish, while any water spillage can cause the speakers’ external or internal components to rust over time.

Check the wiring regularly

As your speakers age, it’s important to check the wiring regularly for any signs of wear and tear. Look for frayed or exposed wires, and make sure all connections are tight and secure. If you notice any problems, don’t hesitate to call a professional to have the system checked out.

Clean your speakers regularly

If you want your speakers to last, one of the easiest things you can do is to clean them on a regular basis. Be sure to dust your speakers regularly and in case of stains or smudges, carefully use a spray of isopropyl alcohol and a clean microfiber cloth for cleaning. Avoid splashing your speakers with water unless they’re safely rated against water protection.

Protection from water damage

Water damage is one of the most common problems that can occur with speakers. Improper care can lead to water damage even on water resistant speakers. Even if your speakers boast of being able to take a splash, it is still a good idea to wipe away any excess drops after each usage. This will prevent any chances of the liquid seeping into unwanted ports and damaging the speaker or other electronics later.

Benefits of extended warranty

If you are like most people, you probably use your speakers on a daily or weekly basis. Over time, the wear and tear can take its toll on your speakers internally, causing them to deteriorate and eventually break down completely. While good care goes a long way, also consider opting for an extended warranty protection plan, which will at least cover your speakers against manufacturing defects, if not accidental damage and/or regular wear and tear. An additional year or two of coverage will make repairs easy and less expensive. For the same, consider taking a look at Croma’s ZipCare Protect Advanced Plan for speakers.
