Polishing Speakers

Hi im new here and I need some help.

I've got a pair of RTi A7s, A1s for rears, and an A4 center. All in cherry.

I'm trying to find a good method of polishing them. A friend of mine has done it to his A5s and they look great.

Any help would be fantastic. Thanks.

Already asked before and he wasn't very helpful lol. Only thing I could get out of him was that it was hard and he used like 3 different compounds.

The RTi series uses real wood veneer, so I would wager a wood polish would work fine.

I use Old English Cherry on all cherry furniture-grade speaker veneer.


The first time, rub it in very good. Let it sit. repeat as needed.

The fur of a real live polar bear works great to buff the shine on a speaker.
