Default Found speakers in basement - need advice

Long story short I found a pair of Mordaunt-Short MS35Ti's with their stands in the basement while I was putting away Christmas decorations. I brought these out and my dad told me that he bought these in Singapore in the 80s with a Marantz amp and a Pioneer LaserDisc Player. I figured that this would be a great way to get into speakers, but I believe that the amp and the disk player were thrown out (stupid I know) a few years back. I'm a total noob at this so please forgive me if I sound stupid.

Now I have a few questions:

1. Do the MS35Ti's require proprietary cables or will any M-M RCA cable do (the ones I found with the speakers have slightly recessed heads)?

2. How do I clean these speakers (there's dirt/dust accumulating on the cones)?

3. Can I power them with a Sony home theater receiver? If not what should I use?

4. Are these speakers optimized for any particular role (front, rear)?

5. What is the expected sound signature of this particular model?

I also found a pair of Kenwood S-822's. I couldn't find any information on them through Google so if anyone knows what they sound like please advise.

Turn down the volume when playing music. Your ears will thank you.
