Speaker paranoia

7 posts in this topic

Can a short, fairly loud blast of very nasty static damage speakers?

If such damage were done, would the results be obvious or could it be subtle?

Since said event occurred, I haven't had the chance to crank my speakers and really check them out.

Thanks.

Depends on the static. If it contains a DC pulse, then yes. But that would probably fry the voice coil and you'd know for sure.

Thanks. There is nothing glaringly wrong with the sound, so I'm assuming nothing happened.

The audio version of the placebo effect can be a very nasty thing.

BTW, the static sound was actually part of an awful experimental cd someone lent me. It is intentionally inserted in the middle of a song with no warning.

I had that happen a couple of times with headphones. :blink:

We trust you're plotting some suitable revenge on said person.

Be sure to report back here with the results. ^_^

Yes. I am going to swap the CD for a Boney James disc before I return it to him. No warning.
