    Default gluing magnets?

    I have read that it is a good idea to re-glue the magnets on older speakers so that they don't fall off and damage/destroy the speaker. Is this necessary for all older Polk's, or just a suggestion? I have heard of the magnets coming off during shipping, but what about from regular use? I have searched the forum, but haven't found too much info about this. Could someone provide some more info about this?

    THANKS!!

    Generally it takes a pretty good drop or bump, but the magnets can shift or completely fall off if knocked the right way.

    A lot of people JBWeld the magnets to the spiders just for security. I wouldn't say it's necessary, but it isn't a bad idea if your speakers get moved around a lot. It's definitely a good idea if they're being shipped though.

    As far as regular use, it isn't too likely that they're just going to fall off...I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Thanks! I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to damage my speakers by listening to them. :D
