When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Speaker in car boot on hot day

I'm very sorry for wasting your time with such a stupid question, I deep down know it's fine, but I just wanna be sure, I'm a little OCD, as you can probably tell.



I live in Melbourne, Australia. I drive this car: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2020-mg-mg3-core-auto-my20/SHRM-AD-6089752/?Cr=1



I bought this: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/amazon-echo-with-alexa-gen-4-twilight-blue



I put it in the boot, which I believe is called a trunk in America. I didn't take it out of the box, or the bag. I did some other stuff after, so it was in there for about four hours. It seems like a fairly hot day today.



After doing a tiny bit of research, it seems like heat can damage a speaker. However, I'm too lazy to read the details, I'm sure it has to be in circumstances very different to this.



But just confirming, there's no chance it will make even a tiny difference to the sound, right? I mostly got it for the music.

Nothing to worry about. It gets much hotter than that in the shipping containers and the big rig trucks that brought them to the Amazon warehouse.

I kept one in the shed and when it got hot or too cold, it would not work properly.  It was okay once its temperature it back to normal.   The operating temperature for the Echo is 0C to +40C or +32F to +104F.  It could be different with different devices but maybe not by much.
