  1. Grill cloth

    DIY Speakers
    I have some JBL 8320a speakers (the ones you see in the theaters for surrounds)that are black, and I would like them to be white so they blend in with the walls. I can paint the plastic cabinets, but I am not sure what to do for grill cloth. The factory grills are a stretch (spandex?) cloth...

    DIY Speakers
    I need to build some speaker grills to protect my 3-ways that I build recently. My 1yr old has decided that the most appealing thing to do in the house is to scoot at high speed and try to punch the cones of my AE TD12S drivers. So far they've been unscathed. I've thought about this...

  7. MDF Grill for DYI Panels?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I was toying the idea of attaching an MDF grill to your typical 2'x4' DYI panel frame, essentially making a wooden cage in which the fabric covered panels would be housed in. Given the right style/color frame and fabric, this could be very stylish way to hanging panels in a room. Has this ever...

    I've been trying to figure out what to use for a grill to protect the driver (15") in the sub I'm about to build.

  11. Grill on a SVS PB13 Ultra

    On the PB13 Ultra that I have I still have the cloth grill, I like the looks of the metal grill that is now available for it. Is this something I can get from SVS? and at what cost?

  15. Speaker Grill Materials

    DIY Speakers
    I'd like to cover my IB with a DIY steel mesh speaker grill or something similar. Parts Express describes their ready made round subwoofer grills as "heavy duty expanded steel mesh" in their product desciption, but it doesn't look like what I come up with if I google "expanded steel mesh."...
