View Full Version : Equipment In Garage Question

09-05-2005, 08:36 PM
Ok, so i want to put my reciever/cdplayer/speakers in the garage and i'm wondering if this may hurt anything. It is a non heated/cooled garage, and i live in minnesota, so it will sometimes be hot as hell in there and sometimes very cold. Will this hurt my reciever, and cd player to be out there? (pioneer, dont know if the brand matters) Right now there's a crappy aiwa combo reciever/cd player plus it's speakers out there and that works just fine, dunno if it would be different for better equipment, anyone know?

Should be fine...

I leave my stuff in the garage all the time. Gets way hotter in my truck then it ever has in there.

Can't see as it would hurt anything providing it doesn't get wet.
I'd imagine the warehouse that gear was stored in before it was bought new probably isn't climate-controlled either and experiences the same temp extremes your garage does.

Ought to be just peachy :D

when you stuff is installed in your car it's basically the same as sitting in the garage, so i forsee no problem

Shouldn't be a problem. If you bring it in from the cold, I would wait until the equipment reaches room temp before turning it on though.

Alright cool, thanks guys. I know the car get's hot and cold i just didnt know if it was any different for home equipment.

You might want to put it in a cabinet to help keep out all the creepy crawlies in the garage.

When I used to have my old receiver outside along with my MTX floor speakers I would take the speakers in during the winter just to protect it from the cold.
