Has anyone used car products on their speakers? If so could you let me know exactly what you used and the result. I know monitor audio say t-cut, of which there seems to be many varieties and also 'mer' which i've not seen on sale anywhere that i've looked.

I was looking at an old set of B&O speakers my dad has which look like they could be done with a good polish - so I'd be interested to find out if anyone else has tried this too.

In regards to the 'mer' polish you mentioned - I know halfords stock this. The packaging is quite recognisable - a blue bottle with a silver cap.

Mer Car Polish 500ml from Halfords Price £9.99
 
ive got the gs range i thought about doing this but waiting for somebody else first :rolleyes:

I wouldn't use a 'Mer' on something like a piano finish. Mer is slightly abrasive, so not good in this application.
Look to 'Meguiars' and buy their tech wax. Not cheap, but it really is excellent stuff!

BTW, what B&O speakers are they? I have a few different ones myself.

Cheers,
Ben

They are a set of Beovox 2702, but the speaker cabinet is rosewood - not piano laquer. I tried them out at the weekend though, and lower bass frequencies weren't being reproduced by one of the speakers. Not sure if this is something I can replace or get fixed.

Excellent, I have some of the smaller 1702! Great little speakers. Hope you get them working.
If the driver is the problem, don't try to replace it, you won't find one that is the same. There are a few specialists around that can rebuild the original.

If you want to give them a good polish... Clean the wood first with meths, then polish with danish oil. They should look like new!

Cheers,
Ben

i waxed my old fb212 monitor audio sub once! gave it a good clean using soapy water and basically treated it like a car - my wife wasn't impressed so i didn't do it again although the results were pretty good.

I had a pair of GS10's & a GSLCR in piano black,and used Meguiars cleaner
wax and Mothers sealer and glaze with smooth as glass finish,made them look better than a car.
