Caution outside speakers

As I was checking 1 1/2 old TT. I notice my speaker cone damaged. It could have been worse, if water have breached my TT. Heads up on this fiberglass owners.

Mine is covered so if it happen to me, U are next.

I've always been somewhat skeptical of my speakers water integrity and have made sure that where they are fastened to the wall that there is no water intrusion along that joint. But are you saying that if the speaker cone is damaged that water can leak into the trailer wall?

How did you notice the speaker cone damage - what are the clues to look for?

Yes, once the cone has gone bad water will leak in.

Things to look at: cracking sound or look in side the speaker if u can or remove it.

My outside speakers have marine type speaker cones (some sort of plastic)... So far sounds great and no leaks

How do you get true stereo imaging off that? The speakers are supposed to be 2.5 human head widths apart for a listening distance of 6'. Them's just too close together for the proper listening experience.

^^^ +1. Hardly seems worth the effort of a second speaker, just run one monaural speaker.

My TT came with marine speakers to. Once that cone breaks from the inner ridge water will go in. the only way to see this in action is to push the cone in with something soft or remove the speaker. The speaker will still play with a broken cone and DELAMINATION will begin very quietly on your TT. I understand marine speakers only last 3yrs before they brake the cone from the ridge inside.
