Covering In ceiling Speakers


Standard Member
Moving house and want to take along my Kef in ceiling speakers but will be left with a few holes to now cover up in the ceilings . I have 3 x Kef CI200QR (hole size about 11.3 inch) and 9 x Kef CI160QR (hole size about 9.3 inch) so decent hole sizes in the ceiling both downstairs and upstairs. Can anyone recommend a DIY way to fill these holes once speakers are removed? Alternatively are there any decent grills/ dummies out there I could buy to cover these holes instead?

Get some 2 by 1, cut 2 or 3 inches longer than the diameter of the hole. Insert into the void with adhesive on either end so it sticks down onto the inside of the ceiling. You can then cut plaster board to fit the hole and fix to the batten you have created with dry wall screws. Fill, sand and paint and your done. Or alternatively buy some cheap or second hand in ceiling speakers and fill the holes that way.
