Christmas lights do not put out enough heat to warrant a smoke alarm. 
Time to change speakers again

Best lighting for an audio room
Here is what I do, Get a string of christmas lights, all white, and the smallest you can find. Place them around the rear permineter of your rack. Tape them down. If they are too bright, wrap some brown duck tape around each light to cast a low le... 
Tweeters got me baffled.
It only makes a difference if you hear it. 
Is an anti-static gun necessary?
