How much does a good set of speakers cost?
Prices range from $50 to $1,000 or more. Plan to spend $300 or more for good deep bass sound (40 Hz). The JBL L810 speakers cost about $300 a pair, offer 40 Hz bass sound and handle 75 watts of continuous power.
How long do Hi Fi speakers last?
Hi-fi systems–or at least the speakers, turntable, and amplifier parts of those systems–should last a good deal longer, figure 10 to 20 years. CD players aren’t as long-lived, though they can deliver 5 to 10 years of service.
Are old hifi speakers good?
No, but there is a lot to say about many things of older speakers. They’re not better simply because they were made to be powered from weaker amplifiers (in general), so they have higher sensitivity, but this usually sacrifices quality somewhere.
Are good speakers worth it?
In general, the most expensive speakers are only worth it if you are working in audio production and listening to extremely high-quality media. You can install $50,000 worth of speakers into your setup, but if the room is echoey, small, or narrow, then the results may be no better than if you had spent $500.
Which brand of speaker is the best?

Will replacing factory speakers make a difference?
Upgrading Your Stock Car Audio Speakers Can Drastically Improve Sound & Performance. Replacing your stock speakers with aftermarket, high performance car audio speakers is the #1 way to get better sound from a car stereo. An aftermarket head unit has roughly the same power output capability that a stock radio does.

Do speakers get worse with age?
Speakers can last a very long time (20 years). However, speakers with foam surrounds on the cones can slowly deteriorate. I’m sure your speakers will outlast your urge to upgrade.
Do speakers sound better over time?
The good news is your speakers will absolutely sound better after the initial break-in period. Due to the rigidness of your new speakers, they will not be as dynamic until they have had a chance to move and become more flexible.
Do hifi speakers wear out?
Yes speakers will eventually wear out, but a decent speaker will last a really long time. Any quality speaker will generally last most of your lifetime. General rule of thumb is, if it sounds bad turn it down. If you aren’t hearing distortion/clipping, it’s fine.
Do new speakers sound better than old?
The newer speakers go louder, and despite being notably smaller than the 35cm high Missions, dig into the lows with far greater punch and authority. They have a degree of composure and control that the old timers just can’t match. But the Missions have considerable strengths of their own.
Can speakers get too old?
Usually speakers are good for 15 years and I have seen some going well with foam more than 20 years, but it’s rare. It’s dependent on conditions where they are used. Air quality, temperature, sunlight etc. But mostly, it’s just time.
Why do vintage speakers sound so good?
Technology, manufacturing, R&D, materials you name it have all evolved. A good quality well engineered vintage speaker will sound better than many cheaper modern speakers. Large vintage speakers turned into slim floor standers of today mainly because of the influence of HT and dual purpose stereos.
