I came across this voice-record from madonna, which upon playing, made a TERRIBLE loud cracking sound. After i played this, i'm pretty sure that there was some damage to the speakers since i'm very convinced that the music sounded differently before.
The sound was playing for maybe, 5-10 seconds, i've played it again to prove it. After it plays and i regulate the sound, e.g. close the mp3 file/browser windows, the sound temporarily gets quieter but "recovers" after some time. It really is a bad issue, would love if somebody could somehow analyze or prove it.
- Would the speakers recover somehow from damage like that? For example if i turn off sound for some time?
- Can i somehow test if my speakers are damaged?
- Is it possible to damage hardware speakers from listening to a loud sound, especially something like this one?
- If yes, how, if no, why?
