Looks pretty much like a thin piece of wood  with cutouts for the speakers screwed in on top of the grills....pretty much ruined them.  Maybe he's just trying to cover up torn or poor condition grill cloth.

I think that you may be jumping to conclusions.

looks like a very clean job to me. I get the impression that a set of plywood grills with wood veneer were made with the fabric attached to the back side to give the speaker an all wood look on the baffle. Not my cup of tea but it looks like a well done job and not a hack job at all. A letter to the owner would answer any questions, they look to be mounted with four screws so may be removable.

Yeah the Klipsch badge isn't centered either and that woofer cut out although not bad at first glance certainly does look to be cut by hand upon closer inspection doubt these are from the factory like that. All that being said not a bad looking pair IMO whoever did the work did a fairly nice job.

Looks like a conversion of an 'industrial' model.  I don't think I

have never seen that speaker terminal used on a Heritage speaker.

Looks like the woofer cutout was done with a jigsaw.

Yes, not very smooth.

He has the grills on backwards notice the cloth on the inside.  What an ID 10 T.  Rare wood facing. 😲

I think you're on to something.

 

Please, attach a photo to alerts such as this, especially when something weird is in a listing.  Without a photo, the CL, eBay, etc. listing dies and the thread loses all relevance.

The veneer chip bothers me a lot more than the grille which I thought looked pretty good. I could not see any saw over travel  so the guy took some care in doing this.
