Question Speakers cut out, need help ASAP!

My MB Quart Premium PVI 216 component speakers the mids (6.5") look like they have some rust on them, and they cut in and out of play.


What is wrong with them? Did water get in my doors? This never happend with other speakers I've owned?


I just want to fix them somehow, there only 2 months old, and sounded awesome!

Any ideas?


EDIT: They aren't blown, they were ran off a clean 50 watts rms, crossed at like 120 hz. They push down very easy and never have been smoked or anything.

The connections are rusty/corroded. Can I sand them down to make them work again

You can sand to remove rust but should look into protecting the raw metal to prevent it coming back. liquid electrical tape works and can be found @ home depot.
If they are blown this ^^^ wont help

Try using foam baffles or some other shielding to protect the rest of the speaker from drips in addition to the connections

Depends how bad rusty it is but yeah, Sanding will work. But you should look into protecting them from weather though.
