Could 55 degree temperatures damage speakers?

I have a bedbug problem that is going to be treated using heat. The exterminators raise the temperature of the apartment to 55 degrees celsius. Is there any potential that this could damage my beloved 8240s or 7260 sub?

Genelec loudspeaker products can in principle be heated up to 55 degrees C for short a period of time if they are not powered. You should unplug the mains cables. However, if it is possible for you to remove any delicate electronics in your house before heating up your house, including Genelec loudspeakers, it would be advisable for you to do so. If you leave the loudspeakers in your home while it is being heated up you will do at your own risk.
