Jim, the grey/orange EAW horned “Frankensteins” I owned used expanded metal for grills covering the entire front motor board, not the individual driver(s). I can’t imagine they made a perceptible difference in sonics but I’m not one to run an analyzer with and without them mounted.

I am really not a big fan of these metal grills, but was just wondering what the effect was on the sound quality. I’m actually leaning toward looking into getting fabric grills for these somewhere, somehow, by someone…

How would these metal grills affect the SQ/acoustics of the woofers?  Recommended, not?  Thanks.

@Chief bonehead

I have a contact that can build a complete grill for the front if you would prefer to do that.

You guys are my kinda people. Go big or go home just ain't enough. So when is the party? I guess the Harley could be up to a road trip later in the season.

I have metal grilles on my 942’s. Rockhound set me up with his guy. I was also worried about how it would affect the sound. They’ve been installed for about 5 months now and haven’t noticed any vibration/ negative affects on sound. I’m very happy with the purchase.

Thanks, Rockhound and I have been in touch.

So Jim you have made the transition from 1 15" woofer to two and see the difference. Wait until you hear the KPT 415-LF's. Nothing quite like watching someone get sucked into the dark side of Pro Klipsch.

Well, that’s not quite the case. I don’t necessarily get sucked into a tradition or a transition from one side or the other. My desire is to experiment with different configurations and systems and amplifiers and speakers just for the hell of it basically… I am honestly not “chasing“ anything, it’s just a matter of seeing what is new to me and having some fun with it.  
personally, I think having a specific audio “goal“ is somewhat counterproductive, at least for me.

Well I wanted to sit next to the 32' organ pipes and that was a specific goal. I wanted that realism and those double 15" woofer bins you now have are what made me wonder just what was possible.
