Cleaning the Sanders 10e
... You don't want to use a vacuum cleaner on an electrostatic panel since this will certainly unduly stress the thin film membrane. You definitely don't want the membrane to touch the stators as it might if the vacuum has enough suction...
Actually, if Sanders electrostatic panels use a similarly durable membrane like MartinLogan, it's probably safe to gently vacuum them. I've owned three different ML speakers over the past 25 years, and vacuumed the panels every 2-3 months, with no degradation in fidelity. In fact, ML even has a page on their website addressing this... https://www.martinlogan.com/en/support/faqs/q/197
I suggest calling Roger and asking him if gentle vacuuming is OK.
