Care and Cleaning of Cornwall IV, and other Heritage line speakers.Answered
Just got my new Cornwall IV speakers in place and in the morning the sun comes through for a few hours and shines on the speakers. Not super intense but wondering if I should be concerned over the years. Does Klipsch recommend any wood care products to be used occasionally to protect the speaker and keep them looking great? I have considered getting window treatments that will cut UV and reduce sound heading outside.
This is my first pair of Klipsch and before I got them, I assumed it would be just a pretty nice box. But I do have to say the wood and workmanship seems really nice with perfect edges. I do have pride of ownership with these puppies and the grills are really nice with the magnetic attach feature and just how sturdy they are. Anyway, any tips on care and cleaning would be appreciated.
Great question! The answer is yes, direct sunlight over long periods of time can begin to "sun-bleach" the speakers. While we do not recommend any cleaning materials to combat this, we do recommend not placing them in direct sunlight. However, if you must, UV window treatments are the best route to go to preserve the speakers.
Howards feed-n-wax my man, 10 bucks at Home Depot. Be sure their clean first, take a cotton cloth, not very big, saturate the rag and start rubbing and it will come to ya. I cut up an old t-shirt, then when i'm done i put it in a zip lock bag, about once a month i get it out and wipe them down. If yours are dry it may take 2 or 3 coats before they stop sucking it up....Roost0
Thanks for the feedback on care! I like the feed-n-wax idea for now. Eventually I may add UV treatment coating to the windows. They are new double pane windows now but could probably still use more UV tweaking.0
