Quad 2905


I recently had my speaker panels repaired. I'm getting mixed information about weather the speakers should be shutoff when not in use. Some have advised me that keeping them charged all the time will cause early failure.

Depends on the weather. 
NYS we have it all depending on the season.
Right right over your head. 
Sorry.........
I didn't realize it was that difficult of a question Wow.
I thought the original speaker, aka the '57 required a constant charge- and that the later models didn't. But I can dig down a little. 
Are these the models that were manufactured in China? There's another recent thread on here about panel failure due to the glue. 
I used to keep mine- both the '57 and the '63 plugged in 24/7 but different speaker. More if I find an answer or if someone else with knowledge of this Quad posts here. 
Yeah, typos, the bane of my existence.  And auto-correct makes it worse sometimes....
"Ok, auto-correct, I'm getting really tired of your shirt!"
Thanks I was hoping for a more Technical answer since their are so many Quad owners who have had failures. After reading the manual it does not address weather or anything about keeping them charged.
I did a little poking around and found the manual, as you say, it doesn't address the issue. FWIW, Kent McCollum, who rebuilt my '57s, had this to say (not on your model but on the difference between the 57 and 63 as regards charging the panels): http://estatsolution.com/faq.html
As mentioned, there was a thread here recently about panel failures which attributed cause to the glue. I can't imagine that turning them on and off is going to make a difference if that is the real source of the problem, but I'm speculating. Might be worth try to talk to a rebuilder- I don't know if the manufacturer retains the know how they once had- it has been a long time since I dealt with the company, though I did get to meet Peter Walker many years ago! 
Lots of comedians on this site. We’d all be much better served if they join the Comedy Central site.
