Forte cloth sag!

Recommended Posts

Any easy quick fix for grille cloth sag.   Like....soaking in the tub of hot water,  swish around and set out in sun to dry?   Thanks

Hope grille cloth sag is not as hard to fix as my body sag!   I been working since retirement (five months) on that one and technical improvement is very

slow.  lol

So no one has experience with shrinking them to fit?  They need to be cleaned anyway after 32 years,  I may give it a try first.

As long as the frames are plastic and not some kind of pressed fiber board. I'm going to assume that they're plastic, but I've had the misfortune of trying to wash some other vintage speakers grills in the shower, only to find them swell up and become totally misshapen afterwards. Whoops.

Thanks, they do look like plastic frames to me.  I will give it a try.   Just surprised with all the operations that have been done to renew speakers here on this site,  that this one hasn't already been done a few thousand times.  I will let you know.

I have never seen that happen on here or personally.  Weird!  Were you able to make it better?

I have had good success misting them with a pump spray bottle and hitting them with a hair dryer.
