1031a woofer/bass dry rubber

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 3/26/15 Recent Posts
I recently bought 3 used 1031a Genelec monitors. The pair are a the newer model. The third which I will use as a center loudspeaker seem slightly older with wooden cabinet. Here, I have noticed that the outer rubber ring on the woofer seem somewhat "dry". There are no issues with the sound. Should I just leave the rubber or could it benefit from lubrication of some sort`?

Hi Christian,

Rubber tends to change its colour/shine due to UV radiation. You might try some silicone based rubber treatment grease to revitalise its original colour/shine. ... VRT3U7DZPX
