    Re: viper remote kills batteries??

    I had a remote that was doing that so I opened it up to look at the traces and contacts. There was some type of residue from a previous cleaning or whatever. I took alcohol and a cotton swab to everything and followed it up with a dry swab. That fixed my problem.

    Had this type of traces.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
