All grilles are individually custom fabricated from acoustically transparent open cell polyurethane foam - we use a much improved foam that won't rot.
We can custom fabricate any size grille up to approximately 48" xe 75". Stock thicknesses are 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1", and 1 1/2". Other thicknesses are available special order.
Grilles are supplied spray painted in your choice of the following colors: gloss black, chocolate brown, royal (medium) blue, dark red (maroon), or burnt orange - (10% extra charge for burnt orange). Call or write if you want some other color or send us a sample and we will match it (at extra charge).
The images to the left are examples of some of the designs we can provide. These are: Plain, Beveled Edges, Striped, and Checkerboard. Variations or combinations of these designs are possible.
Sculptured designs consist of cutting selectively located grooves into the face of the grille - striped and checkerboard patterns are examples of this. The minimum thickness recommended for sculptured cutting is 3/4" - 1" or thicker is better. We can fabricate most commercial designs with only a few exceptions - write or call if you're unsure about a particular design; we'll be glad to advise or make suggestions. When ordering complex designs, please specify exactly what you want with as accurate and complete a sketch or drawing as you can provide; we cannot fabricate a grille accurately without accurate and complete design information. Please specify angle of cut for beveled edges, otherwise we cut at a 60 (degree) angle standard.
Size vs. Thickness recommendations
In general, thin foam (3/4" or less) should be used only for small to medium sized grilles; 1" or thicker foam can be used for any sizes. Foam 3/4" or thinner lacks sufficient rigidity and dimensional stability for large grilles (approximately six square feet or larger) or will require extra Velcro mounting tape or other extra mounting support.
Velcro Hook Fastening Tape
One piece, 1" wide, black, made specifically for holding foam in place is available at $2.00 per foot. Tape is cut with scissors into small pieces around 1-2" long or 1/2" wide strips and has self adhesive backing for applying to speaker front. Foam sticks directly to the tape hooks and may be removed or replaced as often as desired. Approximately 6" of tape per square foot of grille size is recommended for each grille. Please be sure to specify with your order whether or not you want velcro tape.
