Default Grill Magnets Did Not Affect My ESL

Hello all,

It's about time I updated this old posting:
I finished my hybrid ESL speaker project months ago and I did use the 3/8 diameter neodymium grill magnets from Parts Express. The magnets are inside (just under the surface) of the wood frame about 3/4" from the stators. I was concerned (and convinced) that the grill magnets would have some bad effect but I am happy to report I can't detect any audible effects from the magnets. I've even removed the grill while the speaker was playing and allowed the [magnet] corner of the grill to touch the center area of the front stator with no apparent effect... no arcing, no change in the sound; nothing.

Have a great day all !

Congratulations on completing a nicely educated project. Well done.

I'm also relieved to hear that we won't have to rewrite Maxwell's equations or any other laws of physics to account for magnets affecting the operation of your ESLs.
