What Do You Do With Old Surround Sound Speakers?

Let’s face it, we all have gear that we bought years ago and no longer use.

For most people, keeping it in storage may feel like an unnecessary waste of space and its understandable.

However, with new advances in technology happening almost everyday we can be sure that it is almost impossible to stay with equipment for a really long time.

We obviously have to upgrade at some point. Not only because everyone else is doing it, but also because old technologies are being phased out quickly.

This is one of the reasons why we need a good game plan of how we can dispose of old equipment. So we can save ourselves the space and the hassle of having a bunch of stuff around that we no longer use.

In this article, I’ll walk you through what you can do with your old surround speakers.

With that said,

Below are some things that you can do with your old surround sound system:


If you have an old surround sound system that you have no use for, there’s always someone out there willing to take it off your hands.

So, what you can do is ensure that your surround system is working fine and then list it on ebay.

People can easily find it and buy it from you. If you’re one of those people that don’t like putting away things in storage or simply throwing them away then you can easily sell them instead so you can make a quick buck while solving a problem.

If you’re comfortable selling stuff online then you should definitely go this route, most people make good money with old stuff off ebay and so can you.

Thankfully there are a lot of charity organisations around that can accept things from us.

Your old surround system may not have much use for you but could mean the world to some one.

Which is why an effective and good way of getting rid of your old speaker system is by boxing it up and donating it to a charity.

This way you don’t have to worry about keeping the sound system in your home.

You could save some space in the house while also helping out someone in need out there….so you might want to consider this option.

Exchange it with different gear

Having an old sound system that you have no use for can be a hassle at times, especially if the said sound system takes up reasonable space in your home.

A good way of dealing with an old sound system that you have no use for is finding someone that is willing to offer you different gear in exchange for your speakers.

Trust me there are a lot of people out there that have good gear lying around which they could be more than happy to trade away to get something they need in return.

All you have to do is find somebody that is willing to do this swap with you.

Refurbish them

At times a sound system stops working and we simply box it up and put it away.

This is completely normal for people…I’m actually guilty of this as well.

If you’re one person that has an surround system packed away because it stop working to full effect then you can Refurbish them and bring them back to life.

It may cost you some money to get your surround system back in working shape but atleast you can try to salvage what’s left of your system.

Put them in storage

Sometimes you may not know what to do with your old surround system…

Something you can do while you look for a productive way of disposing of your surround system is to keep them in storage.

The mistake that most people make when it comes to keeping things in storage is that they store stuff with little care of how they leave it.

Which is why you must avoid making this mistake. The last thing you probably don’t want to do is to store your surround sound system in an unfavourable way.

The right way of storing your old sound system is properly boxing it up and ensuring its in a safe place.

Ask a sound system expert what to do

One of the sensible things you can do with your old surround system is actually getting an honest opinion about them and knowing what to sldo from there.

You can get into contact with a sound system expert who can help you assess the sound system.

They can give you a good idea of the value of your speakers, how you can sell them and other creative things that you can do with them.

This is helpful and should be something that you really consider.
