No, the grilles are kinda square with cut-off corners. Or at least the frames are that way, the actual grille is round ok.

I think I'm just gonna buy the fostex ones. Its only really for protection when I'm not around - I don't intend having them on when I'm listening.

Long overdue update.

I bought the grilles, they only bolt on through the same holes in the chassis. Don't seem to have any effect on sound, fit across the front of the fonken (close enough though) and only look OK. Keeps the driver safe though......

I'd say a home built solution of a fabric covered frame would be much nicer looking, but for a quick build these work fine....

You can put neo magnets in the screw holes of the grill and they will stick to the driver mounting screws. The holes are 6mm, so 6mm magnets will be a slip fit and need glue. 1/4" magnets are a tight press fit and need not glue.

What I did was put some blue tack underneath the grill and just press it onto the speaker frame. Then when I have a listening session, I just pull them off. The screws i used were non magnetic, so magnets would not work. I have young children (now 5,8,11), and they never touched the cover even when they were younger. Just the sight of it put them off I think.
Worth a try?

Default Grill magnets

Do the magnets in the grill not affect the driver?
