Bentoronto actually has a very good idea. Before you tear apart your speakers, you may want to go buy some beige cloth or sheets or something and try just wrapping the speakers in the new color and see if that will be acceptable enough.

Yes, even burlap, at least for a look-see.

The problemís that an over-cover would look like an over-cover and that having one made would be more time and expense than changing the speakerís own cloth.

Thatís an interesting idea that would work well in some rooms but for several reasons canít be done in ours.

Thanks for the ideas.

Yes, Iíll certainly be hanging the intended cloth over the speakers before dismantling them.
