La Scala grill question

Very nice @Cinema_head and the sound absorption material makes them work well in your long narrow bonus room?

Liked the fabric behind the HF face, but doing that seems like you might need to give the LF a Belle treatment of sorts to balance that. The classic look and the lighting in there makes for a good display here.

The acoustic panels in my experience are great. Every room should have at min first reflection covered with even drapes if it works better. These bigger klipsch remind me of a monster hp bike,snowmobile or something.  Crazy powerful so needs as good of control as possible. Il be honest when I got them for my projector ht room years back. It was decretory (had low expectations). The room is so huge I learned. Any small thing that upgrades the room at all will start to add up.

Don’t I wish; traded snailtrax a sweet M1 Garand Rifle for them.

The car stereo place was next to the Klipsch dealer.

 

Guess who got my money?

Looking good, especially if you want lower grilles.

 

Are you satisfied with your top grilles?

Yes. But I still want to do magnets. I wonder if neo mags would pull through the full front face. So place them on the same face as the horns screw in.

Would only work through the thickness of veneer... not nuch more. It would help if there were also magnets on th back of the grills.

Yes I would on both sides. What are the odds of that working?

On the beaters I've been working on, I have front mounted the horns. Was going to make a full piece of 1/4 inch routed out to fit over the flange,

So I did some more work on the grills. I added neo magnets, cut the wood so the fit is really close, also added some corner trim inside to keep everything as straight as possible. 

 

These are my first grills I've made.
