    Subzero Speakers?

    Looking for outdoor, in-ceiling speakers that can withstand subzero temps. I talked to Bose and they used to make a Bose 131 Marine speaker that could withstand as low as -40 but they don't make those anymore. Anyone know of any that fit this criteria?

    Can speakers wear out?

    I have a set of Bose cube speakers well over 20 years old. They no longer have the sharpness or fullness that they used to have. They are used all the time. Is there such a thing as speakers wearing out or slowly dying because of age?
