Hi,

I received Poorboys products and applied them on my speakers. I can say that it has a very very slight effect on swirls but nothing miraculous. You can apply them on your speakers if you want, but don't have high expectations. However, the detailing spray is amazing for removing fingerprints and oil and making the speakers shine. I do recommend it
I already explained on the previous page that you aren't going to be able to get much correction without using a DA or a rotary. Don't blame the products, Poorboys World are some of the best products you can buy. Not their fault you aren't exploiting them to their fullest potential.
What do you mean by DA?

I think it is an abbreviation for Dual Action - a design of powered polishing device.

As to the issue, were I to try anything, I'd consider a household spray like Pledge - keeping it well away from your electronics and wiring - as that polishes (or gives the impression to the human eye) by filling in the scratches, which is presumably what you need.

The best thing you can do to a 100% perfect shiny brand new car is scratch it with a key and kick the door yourself on the first day.
I thought it was only me that thought with this kind of logic *smile*

Fair enough but either way the point stands you'll need a polisher to get anything better than marginally better results. You cannot generate the required heat or cut by hand.

and had been polished when I got it, some minor swirl marks in certain light. Swirl marks can be classed as low-level scratches as polish is an abrasive, so a re-polish is needed. Major points out that you will need a machine to get it right, but I think you should try AutoGlymm SRP by hand and use it as they recommend which is polish circularly then finish in straight lines. It got rid of the marks on my car, hard work but worth it. Their website has tutorials as does the Meguiars site. A pair of cabinets should be easy then finish off with Extra Gloss Protection. Poorboys and Meguiar are both good too so try them out.
