Ok, figured I'd Git-R-Done
took out the rubber thingies in the MT80's. I bought a metal rod and cut them so that it was sticking out the hole about 3/8" polished off the end smooth. then I took some poxy glue put it in the bottom of the hole and placed the rod in. The glue was enough to fill half og the hole when the rod was inserted. I then took my glue gun and finished filling the hole. After a night of drying I took my utility knife and trimmed up the edge smoothly.
then I sniiped off the little knobs from the grill sanded them down even, got my 1/4 " little round magnets and I poxy cemented them to the spots where those knobby's were. Now my grills just snap in place
total cost about $15

I wanted to post about this the last time the "magna-grille" subject came up.

I will be curious to see if over time, the grilles will "move".....either due to vibrations from loud music, or the occasional bump, and rub.

I actually think it's not too bad of an idea, but....I think if I were doing it, I would have fabricated an alignment "tit" on each steel piece, and an indentation on each magnet, so the grilles would not only stay on the speaker,......but stay straight as well.

If Axiom, for example was going to do something like this, I suspect they might re-design the grilles, and speakers so the magnets, and corresponding steel pieces would press in, and have the "tit" molded on one piece, and the indentation on the other.

I find it interesting how many people keep discussing this topic. I have never had a problem with any of the grills on either 7.1 set that I've owned. Do you guys take yours on/off frequently which may be causing your problems?

I LIKE MINE JUST FINE!....I would not change a thing, personally. (nor did my reply indicate otherwise)

I do however, wish I could post at least ONE TIME without either offending, angering, confusing someone...or having to explain my post.

Larry, I'm confused, so please explain: you say that you wouldn't change a thing "personally". Does this mean that you might appoint a surrogate to make such changes?(Just kidding).

JohnK,

Droll,...very droll.

Actually, I like the hypothetical. To imagine about magna-grilles...does not mean I don't like my M60's grilles, or they are giving me problems. (they are not)

OOPS, there I go.....explaining again.

I've noticed that my M22 grills really stick if I haven't taken them out after a while. It's almost as if the rubber conforms to the plastic insert...they make a "snap" sound when I pull them out. Not really an issue, but it just takes a big amount for force.

Not sure why you got all defensive, like I said this topic comes up often, and I was just curious. I was not pointing fingers at anyone, definately not you. You were the last one that posted in this thread, so I just Daisy Chained off of your by hitting reply.

ps: oh, by the way, when you type in all caps, that tells people your yelling.

peace out
