I have some very strange and outlandish methods that will seem surprising:
1) I use an Indian brand of "chinese chalk" called "Lakshmanrekha" (insect repellent) and draw a border at the base of both speakers. I also lightly coat the speaker cable in this so as to prevent ants, etc. from climbing onto it. It has worked well for me. I also draw a border around the rear ports to prevent insects from entering it.
2) For the drivers themselves I use a Scratch-Proof wipe from 3m/Scoth-brite. This is a micro-fibre cloth that I hope is safe on such delicate parts.
3) For hard to reach places such as rubber surrounds I use a camel-hair brush but very lightly. Obviously the brush is used only for this purpose.
4) I use a sticky "lint roller" for the cloth grills.
5) Soft cloth for rest of the speakers, i.e. sides, top.
6) I keep naphthalene balls near the speakers and the equipment.
7) Silica Gel bags near amp & players.
Would like to hear what other members are doing.
My god Particleman u do take care of ur stuff!!!!
Sorry for reviving this very old thread, but I want to know how to clean speaker cones/drivers. My Mordaunt Short Carnival floor standing speakers have developed small brownish dust spots on the speaker cones. I tried to blow on them but they wouldn't budge. I very gently wiped one with a banian (vest) cloth wrapped around my finger and it came off a bit, but not entirely.
I also tried turning up the volume all the way up and playing music with lot of beats to get the cones to move, but that didn't disturb the spots either.
Any tips on how to clean the cones without any risk of damaging the speakers?
