How to Clean Your Speakers

Cleaning your speakers can involve everything from a quick dust-down to a full wash. But what can and can't you do? We invited our Customer Care Manager, Otto Jørgensen, inside our Ask the Expert studio to talk about the nuts and bolts of loudspeaker care.

The questions have poured in, so in the episode of Ask the Expert, we discuss how to clean tweeters, what to do when your soft-dome has been pushed in by accident and how you can tell if your speakers have been damaged.
