    They do look good and more retro-modern with that colour griolle cloth I reckon.

    Congratulations, you did an excellent job! I have a similar project, I need new grilles for my Triangle speakers. The original grille is black, but I think about something turd coloured, very similiar to the material you choose.



    Your loudspeakers look phantastic and wonderful. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them now even more.

    Thanks you Werner - most kind. I can assure that they also sound twice as good now - well worth doing.

    I wonder if the material from good quality ladies tights could be used for speaker grills?

    Thin and I would have thought sonically transparent.

    Obviously I would go for something classy that doesn’t look like some tights on a speaker, but you older guys probably would prefer something from Nora Batty’s bottom drawer.

    Linn Keilidh fronts were covered in some form of negligee material I recall. Worked well too...

    Do you know if there were any peepholes for the bassports?

    A nice pair of fish nets may be a little open on the weave me thinks
