8240A in Sunlight

Hi there, in my new studio setup my monitors are positioned with the backs to a window that gets sunlight streaming in all morning. The back of the speakers end up pretty hot by lunchtime. Is this going to cause any issues with the electronics? Don't want to shorten the life span of my speakers!

Hi Olli,

It would be advisable to place a curtain in front of the window(s) so that monitors don't get exposed to direct sun light for extended periods of time. There are some temperature sensitive electrical components inside monitors which typically have longer MTBF at lower temperature. It's always better to be safe than sorry. :)
