Dali Zensor 1 White Grilles

Just purchased a pair of Dali Zensor 1's in white and they have come with black grilles which I believe are standard.

Although I have seen pictures of them on the net with white grilles I am struggling to find a supplier. I have checked the Dali website and cant see any referance to white grilles so I am guessing they are made by a third party?

Any ideas where I might get some or do I need to get out the glue and sticky tape for a spot of DIY...:rolleyes:

Cheers

I’ve checked yours out and you have done an excellent job, to be honest though I have checked out a couple of threads on the forum with regards to recovering speakers and it doesn’t seem as straight forward as I hoped.

I have found a couple of sites that offer white grilles as an option but no facility to buy them on their own.

I guess if I can’t buy white off the shelf then black will have to do..... Although the wife is expecting white ones.......:facepalm:

No it is dead simple.

I have no DIY skills etc.


I just cut black cloth off, stretched white cloth over, lay a bead of hot glue on the back of frame pulled cloth over it, held it in place with little clamps for about 3 mins then done opposite side and so on

I suppose im just worried if I mess it up I won’t even have any black ones and with 2 kids and little nieces I fear they would probably fall victim to prodding fingers.........:mad:

Heebie looks like you have also done an amazing DIY Job.... :smashin:

If Dali does white grilles why can’t I find them on the net.....:confused:
