NS10 Studio dust cover solution?


Just recently purchased a set of ns10m studios to go in my basements studio. I also have a set of ns10M's, (the vertically oriented older models) which i have the speaker covers for. My question is, how can i prevent dust from accumulating on the speakers themselves, like the cones, and tweeter? the old ones i used the covers all the time, and dust never entered the speakers. as you all may know, the studios dont have the cutouts for the covers. Any solutions? anyone ever tried monitor covers before? should i just use a pillowcase?

LOL, just dont want to get dust in the speakers much, because they're so fragile i wouldnt want to damage them just trying to dust the cones off...

Thanks to all, have a good week!

Wipe them down every once and awhile

well, i wipe down the boxes themselve, but the actual tweeter, and woofer, i really couldnt. especially when potentially touching the cones could damage those, and i dont have 500 dollars for a new one...

I have never had any damage to monitors in 15 years without covering them. To me, it would be a huge PITA but I can understand the want to protect your investment. I just wonder if taking something on and off constantly could potentially cause more damage than it may prevent. I would just use a pillow case, or a towel to not have to worry about catching on a seem.

went with some very thin microfiber pillowcases, making sure that they do not touch the woofers. no sound differences as far as i can tell. thanks for the input, all!
