Man its hard to take pictures of high gloss cherry! If you use a flash all you see is just that. J Ok so here they are. My reason for making them is due to kids and cats I want to protect my wonderful speakers. So awhile back I left my original black covers on thinking they were safe. After having them on about 3 months I took them off to remember what the speakers looked like and I found a dented dust cap L I was able to pop it out but it had been dented for so long hidden behind the grills that it had permanent dimples …bummer.. Then I saw that someone on another site hade made their own metal grills…….After a lot of online searching here I am with custom covers. I like the look of them but am not completely satisfied with the edging. So I am still searching for something that would work better, and be more efficient. Something that came black. The center grill is more noticeable from a distance that the 2 m80’s. At about 10 feet away at first glance its hard to tell they are even on unless I have all the lights on in the room. Which is nice because I get to see my speakers but also know that the drivers are safe…

Just what I thought, Chet they look even better from a distance. Everything blends so very well and the grills add a rustic approach to your speakers that flow great with your beautiful decor ... I really like the grills.


Thanks! All I need now is to remodel my tv stand to fit a bigger tv and stain it darker to match the speakers and house trim. \:\)

You can't use chain-link fencing though Charles!

I was going to steal the grill of an Escalde and glue it up in front of my speakers. Will that not work?

How many speakers do you have to cover? sounds like an idea...I'm sure there's a few unsold Escalades at the dealers. Might as well steal new over used!! ;\)

Unfortunately, you are right, there are lots of SUVs to pick from these days.

For surround speaker grills I'd recommend a Bimmer X-5. They have those nice little, split grills about the right size.

Very nice.

You could use an Audi grill for the sub!
