    Is Boom speaker deterioration inevitable ?

    This Joe, author of the blog you linked, offers to replace those displays. His forum name here is JoeMuc2009.

    Fwiw due to the DSP programming in the Boom and Radio the bass cone operates at close to full excursion almost all the time, even at modest volume levels.

    Probably reduces the impact, but I don't recall what frequencies the sub cuts off at, so it depends on the music as to how much sound energy this takes away from the stereo drivers.

    Sub Out on Boom is 100 hz. My Boom's speakers still degraded even using sub.

    Yes, same here, never exceeded 50% volume, attached to a sub, both Boom woofers split. (Repaired by me, new foam surrounds).
