I've got a couple of industrial La Scalas, and would like to clean them up a bit...What's the best way to clean the surfaces?  I have (for lack of a better term) the "Rhino liner" surfaces with aluminum trim.  Not using them much outside anymore, so I'd like to clean them up for my "man cave"!

I UNDERSTAND the aesthetics of a fine loudspeaker enclosure finish, but I still maintain of the UGLIEST speakers I ever saw also had the best SOUND I ever heard I'd WANT A PAIR BADLY!

Function OVER form! That's my motto!

start with the same products that you would use on a car finish which has been uv damaged, start with a polish then a spray on wax and finish off with a surface/detailer product. A buffer will make the job go faster and look better. If you feel nervous start on the bottom of the speaker.

I mostly agree with Moray, however, you need to actually clean the dirt off of them first. You could try any of the milder household cleaning products. I use simple green diluted down. You would also need to rinse them off for anything that you had used to wash them. A very modestly damp terry cloth rag will do the trick, and make sure that you rinse them off often.  And then proceed to use the car polish products.

guess I figured that was obvious! if not then I don't think that any advice anybody might provide is going to help or be followed properly. this isn't hand holding 101 after-al. good of you Jim to make the point never the less, I have to hope it is not necessary less this become like those Chinese warning tags stating "do not steam iron clothes while wearing". I mean who wears a steam iron anyway?

A Swiffer duster can get into tight spots.

those look like the fiberglass coated models.  If so, a little soap, water and a brush should clean them up.  Not much water and remove the drivers/crossover first.
