Default Storage of speakers and effect of lower temperatures

I have some Mark Audio 7.3 and 10.2ís and due to realities in my life that need to be addressed before I can enjoy my afternoons building speaker cabinets, the speakers will be stored on the shelf in there original shipping boxes for the next 6 months. The temperature in this room will drop down into the 30ís (F) this winter. Will this adversely affect the speakers in any way? Do I need to find a warmer area to store them? Thanks.

if you've not already done so, this query should probably be directed to Mark at the manufacturers forum

Moisture is your main concern, it is usually lower at colder temperatures. Air is dryer in the winter.

Humidity get's into the MDF or particle board and can make it swell.

Putting them in their boxes will certainly help, even better would be a plastic bag over it with some desicants thrown in for good measure.

6 months should be no trouble.

I think his concern is more related to the temperature (i.e at or around freezing)


Shortwave - has this question been directed to Mark?

They should survive, but i'd suggest the a warmer place would be a good idea.
