Audio Systems/wet speakers


my portable radio speakers got wet, can I dry them out,will they still work like before

You did not give me a model number so I cannot know the speakers and technology of the radio.

If they are paper cone speakers and transistor type electronics they will probably be okey. But you must let it dry out for at least 2 or 3 days without trying to turn it on;;; keep the power off for that time before you try it again.

Good Luck.
