    I was test fitting the tweeter in the Dayton III eclosure and there must have still been some MDF in the air, because I pulled it out and set it aside, came back a few minutes later and it had sawdust on it.

    What do you guys recommend to do to clean it? I tried a slow blast of air and the dust is clinging like crazy.

    Thanks.

    Scotch tape?

    Ahhh, very good idea! I don't imagine that would hurt the tweeter much. Thanks.

    I have always had dirty tweeters too, in my Kit281s. Do you think that impairs the sound quality at all?

    Just as an update, scotch tape worked great.

    And I'm glad you bought 3M tape![​IMG] If you are afraid to use Scotch tape on a delicate surface, first try Post-It Notes' low-tack adhesive. But by all means become addicted to using Post-It Notes everywhere.[​IMG]

    Hey wait just a second! Is this some type of corporate promotion?
