Can you fix or replace grille cloth?

Replacing Ripped Or Torn Grilles

Most speakers today have a fabric grille cloth. If these grille clothes are ripped or damaged, don't throw the whole speaker away!

There are many suppliers of factory-correct speaker grille cloth online and via mail. With patience, and the right tools, you can replace the grille cloth yourself and the speaker will be as good as new. If the grille frame is broken, a similar thickness masonite or plywood frames can be cut to fit your speaker and, with new grille cloth, the repair will be invisible. You can even do 'custom' speaker grilles to match your decor.
