Re: Wet speakers?

They are pretty much the same speakers that are in boats.

Water won't hurt them.

If only we could say that about the radio.

Re: Wet speakers?

I poured water over the speakers the last time I washed the bike - rinsing hte soap off. No pressure to the water, just pouring out of the hose. No problems whatsoever. Still working fine today!

Re: Wet speakers?

Been wondering about this myself. Not so much for riding as when parked in the rain or washing the thing. More concerned with the front speakers 'cause they lay sort of flat and would seem to collect moisture.
It's rainy season here now and most days my bike is in the open lot @ work all day. If it's not rain it's dew heavy enough to puddle by the time I go home around midnight (soon will be frost/ice). I just leave the radio off for a while to be on the safe side but can't imagine the speakers not being designed for wet environments.

I can say on my 07 both F/R were paper cones. I replaced both sets.

Up until then I road a lot of rain and never an issue so they must stay pretty dry.

They get wet when it rains and the are safe to use. They don't use paper in speaker systems that are designed to use outdoors.

Can't remember, but I don't think they use paper in speakers at all any more. But then again I could be wrong and it wouldn't be the first time.

Wet speakers?

When riding the LT in the rain do the back speakers get wet or somehow stay dry & is it safe to use them if they do get wet ? Thanks ,rbots.
