A step-by-step tutorial on cleaning your speakers
Your speakers, especially whether they are large tower speaker units or an expensive home theatre system, require maintenance just like any other electronic device. You can find some cleaning advice for your speakers right here. following are the A step-by-step tutorial on cleaning your speakers.
You would require some microfiber towels, some electronic cleaning wipes, and a soft-bristled brush.
speaker cabinet cleaning
All you have to do to clean your speaker cabinets is dampen one of the microfiber towels with tepid water, wring off the excess water, and let the cloth air dry. You can now clean the dust off your cabinets using this cloth. If the cabinet is made of wood, be careful to wipe in the same direction. When finished, choose a dry microfiber towel and wipe the surface similarly.
speaker grille cleaning
The speaker grilles will follow. If you have fabric grilles, simply sweep them with a lint brush that is sticky once or twice. You can even remove the grilles for a deeper clean, but only after consulting a knowledgeable person or reading the speaker handbook.
Let’s say you remove the grilles and place them flat on a clean table. Now you can clean them with a moist microfiber cloth that has been dipped in a moderate detergent and water solution. To get rid of the detergent water traces, immerse a second microfiber cloth in only clean water, wring it out, and wipe as before. Allow the grilles to dry naturally in the air.
tidying up the woofers
Wood, silicone, paper, polymer, and other materials are all used to make speaker woofers. For fragile woofers, like the paper ones, use a soft-bristled brush or a compressed air can. You can also use microfiber cloth for the more durable ones. But exercise extreme caution when cleaning the central area of the dome.
keeping the tweeters clean
Since the tweeters contain delicate components including coils, membranes, and sensitive cones and domes, it is not advisable to clean them with a cloth or brush. You should only use the compressed air a few times from a distance of a few inches.
Last but not least, if you are concerned that your cleaning would harm any speaker units, don’t hesitate to see a specialist.
