With a blower you might force dust into the compartments of the speakers possibly reducing sound quality. I've used a vacuum with one of those "brushes/bristles" add-on at the tip of the vacuum to clean the speakers easily.

If your vacuum is very strong you could even attach a sock/nylon at the end of the bristles to reduce the suction.

Static can easily be circumvented by grounding yourself while you clean the speakers, and to not clean them on a carpet or move around too much when cleaning them.

Just always make sure to unplug the speakers from the wall or any electronics when doing so.

compressed air is the best way to dust off speakers since its not invasive and nothing will actually touch the speaker domes.

by that i mean the stuff which comes in a can.

source? i've had those speakers for 10 years.
