    My understanding is that a high voltage is maintained across the stators; would this ultimately result in the breakdown of the membrane?
    I have the speakers plugged into wall outlets via remote controlled switches

    My habit is to turn on the system (cd player, preamp, amp , speakers) remotely ( they are all connected to a couple of powestrips in turn plugged into a couple of wall outlets) only when listening

    On weekends that may mean turning the whole system on and off 3-4 times!
    I’m wondering if the stress on the electronics of turning the system on repeatedly can damage the components over the long term

    When the left side amp powers on I do hear a soft thump from the left speaker; incidentally the left backplate had to have the bias replaced last year
