Heat generated by electrical components are like a magnet for dust, and it builds up a coating which acts as an insulator not allowing heat to dissipate leading to over heating and failure. Speakers are not affected in the same way by dust, but it is also a dampener if it is allowed to coat the speakers to heavily.
