Default Speaker magnet rust

Pulled my door speakers and they have some rust on the magnet. Is there any way to treat the rust from spreading?
Also, will it hurt the performance of the speaker or is it purely cosmetic?

Possibly something to protect the magnet from water. Won't make a difference; purely cosmetic.

Wire brush or sand rusted areas, clean with alcohol. Add a clear coat, and if you want to take it to the next level, ceramic coating or, a good synthetic paint sealant or wax.

I put dielectric grease on surfaces like that. Just a tiny amount spread evenly. Almost as if you’re putting armour all on or something. This stuff stops or slows oxidation, and water doesn’t like to hang out on surfaces once it’s on there.

This forum leads to expensive enough decisions as is. No need to go try to get this person bitten by the detailing bug too!

It was Just a sarcastic post, specially knowing that a ceramic coat on a part like that is not necessary, and as far as costs, a cheap rusteoulum can of clear coat is $4.50, anyone has some car wax in his garage and if not they start at $4.00 a neighbor, friend or relatives have some car wax that can bead water or keep it dry faster, the grease may just attract dirt, I would use silicon spray instead, if not on hand, maybe $3-4 for a little can, always being careful to cover the cone and areas that we don't want to spray on

I was just joking with you. I do automotive detailing as a side gig and am way, way too obsessive over my personal vehicle. It's another rabbit-hole type hobby like car audio is.

That's cool because I also enjoy that kind of activity, keeping paint reflecting like mirrors, machine polishing correcting it, engines cleaned and detailed and doing a few jobs on the side.

In the last few years it's gone from a dusty old looking pressure washer, and air compressor sitting in the garage, to almost cleaned like new shiny looking machines, same for stoves, ovens in the kitchen, now they look almost new. It's good to learn how and develop that confidence that pros have, with the right tools and products.
