How Long Do Outdoor Speakers Last?

Your system’s lifespan will depend on the outdoor speakers you install. There’s a wide variety of outdoor AV technology out there. Most high-quality speakers will last up to twenty years, while some can play for a lifetime. 

Which Speakers Last Longer?

In general, ‘passive’ wired speakers will perform decades longer than ‘active’ speakers. Active speakers include an internal amplifier and can be controlled wirelessly.

On the other hand, ‘passive’ speakers are wired to the amplifier for power and connect over data wiring to the system. Passive speakers’ simplicity correlates to endurance. High-end passive speakers are much more durable, easier to fix, and can last a lifetime. 

What Causes Speakers to Wear Out? 

Outdoor audio may be strong enough to withstand the elements, but it still needs routine care from dust, power surges, and ventilation. Clean your speakers regularly and enlist the help of your local AV integrator for technology checkups. 

Playing speakers too loudly over an extended period can also physically damage speakers. That’s why we recommend installing a series of several speakers on your lawn, so you can play at a lower, comfortable volume and still hear clearly.
