...or a 3M microfiber cloth....and I second that suggestion about the automotive polish...

Another option to the Meguiar's, and also from the automotive world is 3M Swirl Mark Remover (part no. 39009) This is especially formulated for dark color cars, and was recommended by show car polish manufacturer Sal Zaino when I needed to remove some scratches and water marks from my black Corvette. Sal's suggestion carried a lot of weight with me because he is averse to applying ANY abrasive product to automobiles, and for him to recommend 3M Swirl Mark Remover meant it must be effective and gentle. It worked for me. Use a sponge applicator and go very lightly. Of course, we are all assuming your speakers have a paint finish akin to Merlin loudspeakers, and not gloss laminate. If you have gloss laminate, I'd suggest testing any auto polish on an inconspicuous area...like the bottom of the speakers.
I've owned several pair of Solos and received one particular pair which were ALL Piano black with scratches everywhere!!
The less than honest AudiogoN'r shipped them in dusty plastic bags which wreaked havoc on the Piano finish.
The finish on the speakers is NOT PAINT, so I would highly advise against using any of the above recommended products.
The tops are actually acrylic (plastic). I used Novus Plastic polish which has a 3 stage product for removing everything from very minor scratches to larger and deeper scratches.

I bought mine at Tap Plastics. I think it was about $25 for the whole kit. There's PLENTY in each bottle, so you only need one bottle of each. The #1 spray polish is awesome and the ONLY thing I would recommend using to clean your speakers. If you get a big build-up of dust, I recommend gently wiping them with a brand new damp sponge. It helps lift the dust off of the speakers w/o letting dry particles grind into the finish.
Feel free to contact me privately if you have any questions.
And...NO...I don't work for the company. I'm just a satisfied customer :-)
