    Cleaning continuum cone stains

    Hello,

    I'm Andrés from Argentina.

    I have the B&W 805 d3 bookshelfs, a stain appeared on one of the continuum cones, I would like to know how to clean it without damaging the material. I do not know what type of stain it is.

    I would very much appreciate your comments.

    Kind regards20211023_181619.jpg

    Never twirl your pasta with red sauce with your fork near your speakers. Just kidding. Good luck removing the stain.

    I will go out in a limb… it looks like something left behind by an insect that chose to rest for a while on your speaker, so most likely organic in nature. If that is a carbon fiber cone, I would first just try a damp cotton swab using only water. You might also try licking a swab to get a wee-bit of saliva on it. If the stain is organic the enzymes in saliva will dissolve it.

    (when I was a golfer, and the grass on my irons wouldn’t come out from the grooves, I would spit on the club face then wipe it off. Enzymes in saliva are great for dissolving organic stuff.)

    Thank you very much for your messages!!

    Finally I spoke with the local representative in Argentina as suggested by @Fermil and they recommended cleaning it with a multipurpose glass cleaner with a microfiber cloth and it worked !!!

    Everything came out !!! Better than new !!

    Haha I'm happy !!!

    Given how obsessive I am with my equipment, I had been concerned.

    Thank you all again for your kindness and good vibes !!

    Hugs from Buenos Aires, Argentina !!

    I’m very happy you were able to solve it. A tiny thing but with our gear we can be obsessive at times, and worried how not to inflict damage. I am already super cautious so I understand having anxiety over cleaning a cone.
