    Default care of vintage speakers

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to care for the wood cabinets and speakers in general? Care and preservation? Thanks.

    Seal them in large plastic bags. Don't send any audio signal to the speakers. Store them in a temperature controlled room and make sure they are out of the house if it catches fire.

    Now if you want to use them, that's another story. Take them out of the aforementioned temperature controlled room, remove them from their sealed bags, dust them off and clean them with Pledge, and feed them copious amounts of undistorted audio signals....then enjoy.
