Has anyone ever found a suitable solution to the obnoxious sticky rubberized coating that JBL put on the front of their LSR series monitors?
I have a pair of the LSR4328P, and I've got no complaints about the sound, but you simply cannot touch the front of them without leaving your literal fingerprints in relief-form in the rubbery residue from the rubber breaking down chemically. Over-time they have changed from a slight rubberized touch to a very sticky, full blown adhesive feel. The entire front of the cabinet feels like the sticky side of gaffer tape now.
I'm afraid I might have to completely disassemble them, so I don't damage any of the components, and try a series of progressively stronger goo removers - at the risk of softening up whatever is underneath the 'rubber'.
Has anybody had any luck with anything that will clean off the gooey mess? I've found numerous threads online, at GS and the like, and not seen any positive results short of shipping them back to JBL in Northridge (at my expense) and hoping they'll replace them out-of-warranty. It's a well-known problem, and a shame JBL / Harman didn't do a more pro-active recall.
Any tips would be welcome, thanks!
