    I have small speakers. They're Mirage AVS-200s.
    The front and rear speakers are identical.
    I'm pretty sure the front speakers are being used more often than the rears.
    Would it be a good decision to rotate the speakers? (like car tires) Does it save wear and tear? Any negative impact?
    Anyone else have crazy ideas like this?

    What an interesting question actually! Negative impact? No I don't think there'd be any. As far as saving wear and tear...well maybe doing so might extend the overall life seeing as how the fronts do take the brunt of the sound. As to whether this'd add many years, who's to say? Go for it as it seems pretty harmless. Keeping the relative positions the same will ensure your overall sound hasn't changed.

    Don't forget to align and balance them after you rotate. LOL
