Brown Extended Heritage Speaker grill cloth

Recommended Posts

In my own research I found this unnoticed tidbit of information, and would like to add to the reference base with some documentation for evidence, and an example for proof. I own a pair of Klipsch Quartet with brown speaker grills. I thought they were rare in that they were special order only, but I had no idea how rare. I have only found one other instance of the brown cloth on the forums in a pair of Forte. If you have a brown speaker grill from a pair of Chorus I,II, or Forte I,II, or Quartet please post a photo for the archives. 

 

As you can see in the photo I provided below the grills are not like the black Forte II grill I placed for reference. I would say the color is not actually brown, but more of a dusty gray with drab olive green tint. The fabric thread is courser, thicker, and not poly/nylon. Possible a wool blend. I will try to contact Duracrest for the actual thread and weave used.

 

And for the documentation I provide to you links to 3 dealer price lists showing the option being available for KG1, KG3 ,KG4, QUARTET, FORTE II, CHORUS I, CHORUS II

It states: Speaker which feature grille cloth as standard equipment will be shipped with black grill cloth unless another color is ordered.

Grill cloth for Quartet, Forte II, Chorus II are: black(19) and brown(20). Academy available in black grill.

Edit to:

section 8. GRILLS TYPES & CLOTH CODES (Part-2)

 

edit as follows

Add to the list:

#20 = Duracrest #20, brown, weave (Forte, Chorus, etc.)

 

So the results would give the following

Are you talking about the #20 grills?  My forte IIs, Chorus Is and Quartets all had them.
