    after all the handling of my av15s, the rubber surrounds look pretty beat up. what do you guys use to clean the surrounds if anything? will it hurt to use a rubber cleaning agent on them? thanks in advance.

    Whatever works.

    I usually have a bottle of windwex sitting around that I use - works pretty well.

    Othersie, just about any cleaning agent should be fine.

    I used acetone a few time to get permanent marks off a rubber surround. Not sure if I recomend this, but it -has- worked.

    water has always worked fine for me, but I usually only use it for removing mdf dust.

    Try a little Armor-All.

    Boy I wouldn't. IMO Armour All deteriorates rubber. I also heard about this years ago, but don't remember where.

    i was actually wondering about armour all, and then after wiping off the excess oil with a clean rag. i think i'll try some water and some windex first, i'll hold off on the armour all.
