Just got shipping notice on this M2 tonight. I need to get busy repairing the wall where it will be mounted. Where the in/on-wall VP100 is now.

Speaker and bracket arrived where I work at today. It looks good with the Cherry Nutmeg wood finish. I got it in satin because I was told the simi-gloss was darker. I noticed that they didn't put any place to attach feet on it because I'm only going to be using the wall bracket. The edges all look nice and even. I want to thank whoever made this one. It's a good looking speaker.

I was wondering if I could use some sort of furniture polish on it to give it a little bit of shine. Anyone know anything about this?

Check with Axiom on that Cat. I don't see why you couldn't use a non abrasive polish on it. I use a product called Trade Secret on my furniture...really gives depth to the patina.

Here's what ehow.com had to say about it. I just don't want to use something that will change the color or darken it any.

No Water - Don't use water when cleaning veneer furniture unless you have wet a cloth or sponge and have wrung it out thoroughly before proceeding. Water can lift the veneer and damage the wood underneath, resulting in a useless piece of furniture. Don't saturate wood veneer with liquid cleaning products, as they will essentially do the same thing as water.

Polish - Do treat your veneer furniture with furniture polish designed for real wood products. The oils in the polish will lift most dirt and residue from the wood veneer and clean it away. While the oil will soak into the veneer, it isn't rich enough to penetrate the wood underneath. It won't damage veneer furniture. Don't spray the polish directly onto the veneer furniture. Spray it onto a cleaning cloth instead.

Cleaning Solutions - Create your own homemade cleaning solution for cleaning your veneer furniture. Mix a cup of white vinegar with two cups of water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Don't spray directly onto the veneer furniture. Instead spray a fine mist of the solution onto a cleaning rag and wipe the furniture with it. Be sure to use a clean rag afterward to dry up all of the solution. The diluted vinegar will cut grease and anything that has left a sticky residue without damaging the veneer or the wood underneath."

I don't think I'd use an cleaning solution on them, myself. Buff it with a decent furniture polish and just dust it once in a while.

On all of my other vinyl speakers, I wipe them with a cloth that's been dampened with a little water whenever I start to notice some dust on them. I wasn't sure about the wood veneer since this is my first one. I just checked the info that came with the speaker and there's no care instructions in it.

A little furniture wax would likely be fine, but I'd maybe check with Axiom to see what they use for a finish....

Bob K, whatever his name is today, will likely be of more help here than the rest of us combined.
