Default Quad ESL57

I'm curious how difficult it is to fabricate a set of dust panels for Quad ESL57 speakers? I have an opportunity to pick up a pair with frames but no dust panels.


thank you

Quad sell them as spare parts, as prefabricated frames with the thin plastic of the dust cover attached (Or used to) and since they are just a wood frame and some plastic they are cheap.

You need a very hot air source to shrink the plastic so its taught. You could probably make your own for less.

Hi,

If the dust covers are missing from the panels then there is a good chance of other trouble. I would not buy it unless it's really really cheap.
