Dusting Drivers
« on: 22 May 2013, 02:40 pm »
What is the best way to "dust" the drivers on Daedalus speakers?  Even with the grills on, some dust will accumulate on the drivers.  I believe I've read that one should not touch these drivers due to their coating.  So what's the best way to approach this?

A proper high quality USA made ostrich feather duster (not one of the cheap stiff colored feather types) is one of the softest dusting instruments you can buy, soft enough to be used even on the most delicate silk dome tweeters.

Something like this or equivalent.

I use air dusters like CleanTex CT2510 AccuDusterII...always from a little bit of a distance (8-10" away).

The coatings on the drivers are fairly course so I find soft dusters miss quite a bit.
