    I've got some M&K speakers and SVS sub on order in gloss black and was just wondering what people do to keep them clean and protect them.

    Does anybody use car polish for the job ? I've got some of the Zaino range of polish which would seem ideal for the job and a cleaning up with a clay bar should do wonders for any scuff marks.

    If it's just sticky finger marks or similar, then 'Fast Glass' used sparingly works well on all sorts of glossy finishes.:thumbsup: Good deal on your M&Ks I saw from the other thread.:thumbsup:

    I was under thje impression that M&K never made glossy black versions of its speakers and that that glossy ones were the dodgy knock off from China. I might be wrong here so perhaps soemone else could clarify this.

    I've got some Fast Glass somewhere. I'll give it a go.:thumbsup:

    The speakers I demo'd in my local HiFI shop certainly looked like the ones in Kelvins link and definitely sounded the dogs dangly bits.
