I have acoustat Model 8 and Model X. I want to know if they can be damaged by being close to a window airconditioner. The air coming out and going in to the unit can the panels be damaged?

The cold air discharge from an air conditioner in close proximity to the speaker should not do it any harm; however, if the unit is also a heater, then hot air could damage the diaphragm if it is directed toward the speaker. it is quite possible that the air movement would displace the diaphragm and modulate it if allowed to enter the speaker. Prudence dictates placing the speakers in a way that does not permit the air from the window unit to directly hit the speaker.
