I'm looking to see if anyone knows of any company that will make custom speaker grills. I have a dedicated HT with built-in drywall cabinets for the front speakers, I'm looking to have speaker grills made to cover the openings that the speakers sit in. Any one have any ideas? I'm not the most handy at creating things.

Loc: It's all about the location.
My guess would be to contact a woodworking shop to make you up a frame in two parts, one to attach the fabric to, and the other to frame around that part(the grill). It depends on how fancy you want to get, it could be something as simple as a glued up straight frame or a contoured CNC machined frame(could be $$).

Try contacting Axiom to see if they would build you some custom grills? Worth a shot atleast.

Welcome!

If I'm visualizing the cabinet opening correctly, I'm wondering if you could do the framework yourself and then cover that with acoustic cloth? What are the dimensions of the openings?

two of the openings are about 2 ft by 4 ft and one opening is about 2.5 ft by 1.5 ft.
