Hi,

I take a look in the picture thread and many of you are not using the grille for your speaker... Is this only for the photo or you found that they look better without?

And is the grille have an impact on the sound quality?

Thanks,

Eric

Oh, mine's definitely only for photos. I've got a 1 year old.

I've never heard a difference in sound quality between grill and no grill.

Grills off all the time. My current speakers don't even have grills.

I don't have kids. That's a major factor.

Grills on for me. Has cat, but I would have them on anyway as I prefer not to see the speakers too much.

Mixed in my house, VP150 is up high so it is naked, the M80s have the grilles on, as I too have kids. The other set up M22 and VP100 are usually without grills.

Grilles on. My M22s are wall-mounted, but the woofers are within reach of my tall 4.5 year-old. I prefer that he doesn't know what's behind the grilles, so I've never removed them in his presence.
