You've got money in your speakers. Wanting to protect them is reasonable. I look at this like putting a cover over a treasured car.

Treasured...sure. Valuable...sure. The real reason I put a cover on the cars...keeps the dust and dirt off.

Results in having to do less vanity maintenance, which over time results in wear on the paint and interior/exterior materials...

Carefully getting the dust, dirt, and exhaust soot out and off a decades old original fabric, vinyl, or especially pebble grain leather top is not fun!

After talking to several guys who know their stuff, I've decided not to do anything. Rosewood should only slightly darken over time, which will look nice with my speakers and it's impossible to tell without a reference set of speakers. I was given a recommendation buy a guy I trust to use a good furniture polish on the speakers so I will do that as well when I'm cleaning. Thanks for all the suggestions!
