I have a question - In Ceiling & In Wall Speaker
Will the insulation in my ceiling effect my speaker?
Fiberglass insulation coming in contact with our in-wall or in-ceiling speakers is not considered a fire-hazard. It still may be a good idea to separate the speaker from the fiberglass insulation to reduce the possibility of unwanted noise occurring.
Will the heat in my attic ruin the speaker?
No. The speakers are designed to withstand a lot of heat over a long period of time. There are no flammable materials on or in the speaker. It would take extreme heat- greater than what atmospheric heat can provide- to melt any of the speaker's components.
How to troubleshoot a potentially defective speaker?
- Un-mount/remove the speaker and check that the speaker wire is inserted in properly. Remove and re-insert the wire(s) into the terminal(s).
- Check the back of the receiver to make sure the wire is connected properly.
- If you have a volume control, check the wire connection there as well.
- Connect the speaker to a different channel on the receiver to see if it changes.
- Swap the speakers to make sure the receiver channel is not bad.
- Swap the out put to the speaker from the receiver to see if the speaker is still working.
