I have a soft spot for electronics and machines. I love them and I get excited whenever opening up a new gift and see one. When I open the newly packed best marine speakers 6 months ago, it was beautiful and sparkling. The shades were attractive and I was so head over heel for it. Now I see no glam in them and I think it’s high time I do some cleanup and maintenance to see if the old vibe comes back.
With gradual and thoroughly clean up, it was possible. So I wanted to share my method with you guys. Today, let’s know how to clean speakers. I’ll keep it short and simple!
How to Clean Speakers (Step By Step)
Before you jump right into the clean-up process be sure of a few things. You should not use any harsh type of cleaner to clean the dust. These materials are really harmful to electronics and cases. So you should get this stuff out of the way. Another thing is, make sure the switches are turned off. Don’t leave them off since this might bring a disaster. Now let’s begin the clean-up.
How To Clean Speakers Grills
In most of the speaker design, the grill is located in the front of your machine. These are basically made of various materials such as plastic, metal and even fabric. So you should be careful enough to clean the area depending on the appropriate material of your grill.
When you have a fabric grill in your speaker, you should eliminate any grime by lying it down on the floor. Next, you’ll need a vacuum cleaner that comes with a grime attachment. Use it to gently get rid of any dirt and replace the grill.
While with other materials like plastic and metal, you should get an appropriate cleaner designed for such a task. Use it or simply go with soap or water formula. Just be sure to dry them off perfectly after you are done with the cleaning.
How To Clean Speakers Cones
This is really delicate. There are chances of harming them and making a hole if you don’t give enough carefulness. So please be sure to be extra cautious when cleaning the speaker’s cones. The materials sued for the cones are really soft. They can easily punch a hole if not being enough cautious. So the best way would be to use a compressed air can and use it to blow out clean up. Simply use compressed air to get rid of any grime or dirt in the area.
For deeper cleaning, grab a makeup brush and use gentle strokes to clean the area. You can get rid of dirt this way that a blowout cannot handle.
How To Clean Speakers Terminals
The terminal is of speakers that are very strong-most of the time. But still, there are chances of getting dirty since the dirt and dust grow up for a long time. First of all, make sure the speaker wire is unplugged properly. You should next get a vacuum and gently blow out any dust or grime residing in the area. Using a narrow hose attachment will do the best to clean connection as well any seams.
Compressed air will do no good here since that would only force dirt inside the hardware area. You can later grab a Q-tip and use it to eliminate any finer particles that remain in and around parts such as small divots, binding post or even spring clips.
You can use some cleaning liquid also for such areas. Try isopropyl alcohol to clean the terminals and connections. Don’t go with water-based cleaning liquid. They will harm the place. Also rubbing alcohol is a good alternative to use.
But be careful enough to make the terminals dried after using them and reconnecting cables. This has the tendency to leave a residue as it evaporates.
We are always neglecting the clean-up for our precious speakers. Maybe we once in a while just wipe away the visible dirt outside the speaker. But it’s really important to do some thorough clean up inside so that you can enjoy the fun for a lifetime. You can use these tips for cleaning your car’s sound system. So don’t wait for anything. It’s the right moment to try out a full and deep speaker clean up.
