As a durable consumer product, speakers are not prone to failure, but they often make you very annoyed when a problem occurs and bring us a lot of inconvenience. Taking precautions in advance, doing a good job of maintenance and maintenance during the daily use of the speakers can at least delay the time of the speakers and make your use more comfortable.
Today, let’s take a look at the daily maintenance methods of speakers.
1. Dust prevention is the first
Dust has always been the natural enemy of power amplifiers and speakers. In the course of years of use, the dust that falls into the speakers will have a subtle impact on the sound quality. Clean the speakers at least once a week and try to keep them free from dust. Place the speaker in a place where there is not much dust to extend the life of the speaker.
2. Do a good job of moisture proof
Humidity is the "invisible killer" of speakers. The dampness of the speaker will cause physical deterioration of the horn's diaphragm during the vibration process, which will accelerate the aging of the horn's diaphragm and directly lead to the degradation of sound quality.
In addition, humidity will aggravate the aging and breakage of the soft rubber ring of the speaker, and at the same time cause some metal parts inside the speaker to corrode and rust, causing unexpected failures.
The speaker should be placed in a relatively dry environment. If the environment is relatively humid, when the speaker is not in use, a large bag can be used to cover the speaker to prevent moisture. In addition, the speakers should keep playing for a period of time to prevent moisture from the heat emitted by themselves.
3. The temperature of the speakers and the environment should be appropriate
Various components in the sound box have certain requirements for temperature, such as wood, paper cone sound cone, tweeter silk membrane, suspension edge, bracket, adhesive and voice coil, etc. If the temperature is too high or too low, it will cause unstable operation of the speaker components. Under normal circumstances, these subtle components will not cause problems. But if some families in the north have stoves, heating and other equipment, they should keep the speakers away.
4. The placement of speakers
The speakers should be placed as far as possible to avoid direct sunlight or places where the temperature is too low. Because these places are particularly easy to cause the appearance and internal components of the speaker to age. In addition, speakers are not suitable for placing in places with strong electromagnetic fields, such as refrigerators, air conditioners and other home appliances. The sound source will be affected by it.
5. Turn the speaker on and off, adjust the volume to a suitable position
Passive speakers are basically equipped with an external power amplifier. The power amplifier is most afraid of the impact of instantaneous current. If the instantaneous current is very large, it is easy to create a successful amplifier and be burned. Before turning on the audio source device, adjust the sound of the speakers to the minimum, and then increase the volume after the audio source device is activated. On the contrary, when turning off the sound source, the volume of the speakers should be adjusted to the minimum before turning off the sound source. In this way, the external power amplifier of the speaker can be well protected.
6. The speaker has been used for a long time, and the thread should be cleaned
After the speaker cable is used for a long time, the speaker cable ends will inevitably be oxidized, which will cause the sound quality of the speaker to decrease. This requires cleaning the contact points with a cleaning agent or replacing the wires in order to maintain the sound quality for a long time.
7. Before playing the speaker, check the line connection
Before using the speaker, it is best to check whether the speaker cable is connected properly, and also check whether the speaker cable is bitten by a mouse. Many speakers do not sound or the sound quality is degraded, but the wiring is obstructive!
Most of the simple maintenance and maintenance of speakers are within their power. Paying more attention to the details of maintenance and maintenance at ordinary times will greatly enhance the service life of the speakers.
