One thing that is always recommended for cats and kids problems is using pet screen in a frame system designed for screen doors as grilles. Just a thought. These are tips that have gone around the DIY forums over time.

I use that system but with simple double stretch fabric and magnets attached to the channel system.

I think I'm going to get a small electric fence! ....Seriously, I don't think it's going to be an issue much longer. But, I will take precautions anyways. I want to use the magnets and fabric so long as the fabric is acoustically transparent.

There are good kits at Parts Express. Get one of their free catalogues. Always fun to see what they have as an audio specialist.

FAr as material goes, as I recall nylon or silk would be best. I mentioned Speakerlab above where Terry Cain actually apprenticed (as I read some notes about it.) At Speakerlab they always supplied doubleknit fabric (the sort that leisure suits and cheap pants are made of) because it stretches in two directions.

I have gone to the fabric store many times and looked at silk. It doesn't stretch worth a hoot.

But those kits at Parts Express have some stuff especially for speakers. I guess I'll continue to make my own.

FYI here's a site that shows the from- scratch method that I found worthwhile:

Do you think putting these up on spikes would be a good idea?

I'm confused. Your photo shows these on the desktop next to a monitor.

In any case, though there is great enthusiasm for all sorts of gear, to my mind, there is nothing inside the box at normal listening levels to require anchorage to the floor. It reminds me of that speaker icon that "vibrates" in a dancing manner from side to side in animated fashion.

Sorry, I will be putting these on the floor. Better stated.....on stands. The question should have been ... Should the stands have spikes? As for the picture, they are indeed on either side of a flat panel TV. Just not for long.

There are stands which have them. They have some real "muscular" ones

Back to an older point you made. At what height should these little guys sit? Remember that they will primarily be used at my desk in a rather large bedroom.


BTW....The outrigger stands look perfect for the job...TY I'll look into getting those(or similar)

Many of Terry Cains designs used the outrigger style. It should be possible to make something similar to expensive premade, but up to you. They always look classy but your cabinet looks on the small side for such an how to say appertinance.

FWIW, this is my preference for small, high aspect ratio cabs, with the span being ~40% of cab height.
