Cleaning exposed woofer cones.
 
I'm seriously considering buying the KRK RP5G2 Rokit 5's for my studio setup. Currently I have some Altec Lansing computer speakers w/ sub that have worked faithfully since mid 90s (no joke). Since I've never owned speakers without any grill/mesh covering I'm curious if it is possible to CLEAN or wipe the exposed woofer. I tend to get a lot of dust in my place and I tend to wipe my keyboard like every other day (slight OCD) but know speaker woofers are typically very thin and can be ripped if you're not careful.

I believe a soft cloth and some blowing will do the job. I don't think woofers are that sensitive and can handle some cleaning without damages.

Bucket of warm-to-hot water, cup of vinegar, and a chamois leather. ;)

Cancel my last, that's for windows.

Cillit Bang and Scotchbrite.

My personal weapon of choice is a wire brush and dettol.

I tend to keep them in reserve for the old 'farmers' - can't let that wire brush get used for just anything.

Compressed air and a swiffer.
