    Anyone know how? They are clogged to the max.

    wouldn't compressed air push the debris in further?

    would using tape on the speaker grill (masking tape, etc) be able to grab it?

    Anyone ever try a low-powered vacuum? Yeah, I agree that the compressed air might force the dust and whatnot back into the speaker section or worse into the computer, or would it?

    The combo...

    of tape and a low powered suck (vacuum cleaner) has worked for me. :D

    Wouldn't that damage the speakers?

    Well, that's something I'm not sure about. I was hoping we could get a MR member(s) that could enlighten those of us that will someday address these issues...

    I've heard the vacuum works fine form some posters on here. I'd do the tape first then the vacuum myself.
