Chicago area shop that can put the Klipsch fabric on my speaker grills?


Recommended Posts

Howdy all!

 

My boys have gotten to the age of breaking things...so I need to put the grills on my Cornscalas.  I have the fabric: https://critesspeakers.com/speaker_fabric.html 

 

... Now the job must be done.  Is there anyone in the Chicago area who can do this for me?  My zip is 60564, west burbs.

 

Can I easily do it myself?  I seem to recall that there was an art to it without sagging.  Also, any ideas, points, or process tips I should know about how to attach the grills to the speaker - velcro, magnets, etc.?  I am looking for the "easy button"! 

 

Thank you!

Easy button does not work with klipsch grilles , you must 1st pull, stretch the fabric using wood blocks -------then  staple in place , the top and bottom , then do the same with the sides -

Any good Upholstery shop should be able to do it.

Ask your local good quality furniture store who they use for fabric repairs

or

Search on your fav search engine and read the reviews

I'm going through similar with one pair of Cornwalls for my theater that's under refurb. Took the frame and cloth to a local upholsterer who said they understood what was supposed to happen, then had his "helper" do the work and screw up the whole damn job.

 

There are gonna be the most expensive speaker grills for Cornwall in history.
