Hello,
After repairing a pressed in dust cap with vacuum I considered the use of fly swatter therapy to help my granddaughter learn not to touch the speakers. She will stand there poised with her feigner ready to see if anyone is looking. The fly swatter is to use on the young onesí mother.

All just for fun!

Most grills will do that to some extent. You may want to look fro mesh grills like the toaster but dipped in plastic.

The nylon screen material for doors and windows is also worth exploring.

Dave,

Probably toaster grills will take another name and use when they get dipped in plastic... if I toast'em the plastic will melt.

By door/window mesh are you refering to the fine mesh? I am attaching a pic. I was surprised - this stuff is soft to touch but doesn't get pushed back much even when used in large frames. It's pretty dense, so if I can use this in a nice frame, maybe I can skip the acoustic grill cloth?

The key thing about the nylon mesh is that the fixing to the frame needs to be tight. I've also drawn a rough design for the frame -probably can put together with plastic/wood pieces. Thinking of position the mesh 0.75" to 1" away from the baffle - will have to close the gaps on sides as well to stay safe from prying fingers.

If you are thinking different material or techniqe please let me know.

Yes, that looks like the stuff... i mentioned it because it has very little give if stretched tight.

We are still at the double knit over an MDF frame (see MDF has its uses)

Maybe time to start writing "100 Things You Can Do With MDF" or "MDF For Dummies"

Sounds smart and simple will use a nice MDF frame with this stuff tightly stretched over. Guess I can screw the MDF frame on (so many screws, OMG)?

Let me see I can find a nice color for the mesh

Using it as a primary material for speaker enclosures would not make the list.

Since trying embedded neo magnets we don't use anything else.

Ah, Neodym magnet... had a few dead hard drives lying around somewhere - could salvage some from there I guess.
