Hi everybody !!!
I just get (2wk ago), a nice:
VP150 v3 Speaker in Real wood Cherry with Cinnamon Stain, Satin finish.

What are our advice to clean them?
What products we should use to maintain the finish.
What are DO and DON'T ?

For now, I only use a gentle dry cloth (microfiber)
My wife whant to use :Pledge furniture spray but she's not sure.

I do not see any cleanning method on the owner's manual.

i would just keep it dusted with a swiffer, or possibly a damp micro fiber cloth. Possible call Axiom for their advice.

Somewhere in one of my links on these finishes, I got a response back that says to use any of the polishes for fine wood furniture, and he listed several brand names. None of them was pledge (not for fine furniture).

Ahhh Pledge. Soo many fond memories of my brother falling down when he got out of bed because we sprayed his floor with it. Lesson learned - Never wear socks to bed
or in sandles but that is another story.


With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.

I just copied and pasted what I found in an old message of mine here:

Here's a response for furniture polish/wax from Axiom.

A quality furniture wax (Black Bison, Goddard's, Butcher's Wax, Antiquax, and Renaissance Wax.) is the way to go.

Butcher's isn't the greatest. It's for floors only. Too heavy and cloudy. Furniture wax only, like Briwax (and maybe some of those mentioned, too, as long as it's for furniture only and w/o carnuba).

Technically, I don't think you're supposed to apply any waxes to wooden pieces that are finished with a water-born catalyzed varnish, because there are no waxes or oils inherent in the finish itself. I guess it would present a problem if you ever had to strip the wax, since you'd need a mineral spirits solvent to do so, and that's not good for a water-born catalyzed varnish.

I've done it to veneers w/o incident. Just don't apply with steel wool (even plastic steel wool). I'd just use a lint-free rag to apply and buff out.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

I've got 1 M2 in wood, but haven't done anything with it's finish yet, other than just dust it with an almost dry dampened cloth.
