how to get water out of your speaker



We've all been there: the speaker is covered in water, and it's not clear what to do. Do you let it dry? Blow it out with a hair dryer? Vacuum it out? What if your speaker is older than 24 hours? In this article, we're going to explore how to get water out of your speaker so that you don't have to spend hundreds on a new one.

We've all been there.

We've all had that moment when our speaker stops working, and we wonder how to get the water out. Luckily, there are a few different ways to fix it depending on how the water got in.

If you think your speaker has been damaged by an accidental spill or other cause of liquid damage, here's what to do:

  • Take off any protective covering from around your speakers (like a case or fabric) and lay it aside so that it doesn't get wet again. You'll want both hands free for this process since you might need one hand to hold down buttons on the device itself while using another hand to squeeze out water with towels or cloths.

One thing you can do is blow air through the speaker.

The first thing to do is not use a hairdryer. Using a hairdryer to dry out your speaker will destroy it, as the heat from the device can damage its internal components.

The second thing you shouldn't do is use an electric vacuum cleaner on your speaker. This will also cause damage to your device and make things worse than they were before.

Thirdly, don’t try using any kind of towel or cloth to absorb the water from inside your speaker it won’t work! Instead, you want something that can absorb water quickly and efficiently like paper towels or tissues because these are made up of fibers that are designed specifically for absorbing liquids such as water (and other fluids). The reason why paper towels work better than regular cloths is because they contain more surface area per unit volume due to their thinness which helps them pick up more liquid faster than thicker materials like cotton balls would be able to do by themselves."

A hair dryer may be effective as well.

A hair dryer may also be effective for drying out a wet speaker. However, before you use a hair dryer to try to save your speaker, you should make sure that the speaker hasn’t been wet for more than 24 hours. If it has been more than 24 hours since the speaker got wet, this method will not work because the water has already seeped into the internal components of your speaker and there is no way to get rid of it without replacing those components entirely.

If you do have a newer model that was only recently exposed to water, though, here’s what you do:

  • Turn off any lights in your home or office so that they don’t reflect light onto the speaker surface or cause any additional heating up on its own;

  • Plug in an extension cord into an outlet near where your speakers are located (if possible); 3) Use rubber gloves so as not to spread any germs from one thing (your hands) onto another thing (the now-soggy piece); 4) Carefully place said soggy piece into some sort of sealed container filled with rice (such as Tupperware™ containers); 5) Set aside overnight; 6 ) Remove from container in morning; 7 ) Use hair dryer set on low heat setting until all moisture has evaporated

Use a vacuum to suck out excess water.

The next step is to use your vacuum to get all of the excess water out of the speaker. Ideally, you'll be able to remove as much fluid from your speaker as possible before attempting anything else. If you're using a portable vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment, it's recommended that you keep it at least three feet away from where water has been absorbed into the electronics of your speaker. If this isn't possible due to constraints on power outlets or other considerations, then try not moving around too much while vacuuming so that there's less likelihood of causing damage by bumping against something or turning over an object nearby (like a table). You should also make sure that nothing is blocking access between yourself and where you're standing for example, if there are objects blocking off part of an aisle where someone might be walking through with their luggage nearby while they wait for their flight--and try not letting anyone stand directly behind them either...

If it has been more than 24 hours, consider a service call.

If your speaker has been submerged in water for over 24 hours, it's best to get a service call. While you may think that the water is gone and that your speaker will be fine, this is not always the case. Water damage can affect internal components of a speaker and cause permanent damage. If you don't want to replace your entire speaker but need it fixed anyway, consider taking it to an authorized retailer or manufacturer's warranty center for assistance.

Act quickly and you may save your speaker from water damage!

When you realize that your speaker is submerged in water, act quickly. The longer the speaker is exposed to water, the more likely it is that moisture can get inside and cause serious damage.

If you don't have time to take your speaker out of its container, try these steps:

  • Turn off the power and flip over your speaker so that the opening from which sound comes out faces up. Use a towel or cloth to dry off as much water as possible with gentle strokes. Make sure not to spread any liquid around on surfaces; instead pat gently at first until all of the liquid has been removed from wherever it was sitting before being flipped over (this may be difficult if there was a significant amount of liquid).

  • If possible, place your speakers in front of a fan but make sure it's not blowing directly at them! This will help remove any remaining moisture from within their insides before turning them back on again later after they've had time to dry thoroughly


As you can see, there are a lot of different techniques to try when your speaker gets wet. Most of them are easy to do yourself and will save you money in the long run. However, if you have tried everything and it still isn't working, then you should consider taking it in to a professional who can give their opinion on the best way forward for your particular situation.
