Which do you prefer, and why? Do the grilles affect the sound qualtiy at all?
anything in front of a speaker will affect it to some degree so grilles off unless you don't hear a difference or you've got kids or thick adults visiting or young inquisitive children of your own-tweeters especially are very easily damaged.
Or if your speakers are specifically designed to be run with the grilles on, as are my M&K 750's.
On - I have children!!
off i don't have children!!
I am available for hire, for anyone without children.
"Nathan's tweeter poking-in service"
that's a new description for it!!
Dont have any choice, the grille is part of the speaker design. (M&K 750THX)
The grilles on my Ruark Reference's are desigend to be on. It makes them sound better.
No, it does.
Although my speakers ( mission Volare ) look better with the grilles off, I tend to leave them on as I don't want to let the cones get a build up of dust on them.
Unless anyone knows a way to clean the cones without damaging them.
I have a 2 year old, who I discovered the other day - being in the process of pushing all the caps in!!!!!!!!!
I don't think she'll try it again though
Grilles on for me I'm afraid - the only concession I had to make for the missus to have all my kit in the lounge.
off kef qs look so good that way
I like them on. Keeps the dust off
Play them really loud 24/7, thereby not giving the dust a static woofer surface to settle on.
Alternatively get the wife to Hoover & clean everyday so there is no dust in your listening-room.
Off for me........i'm convinced i get a better sound.I would be interested in any other Mission M74/74i owners,what they have to say.The grilles have a fairly thick ,mesh framework,Which i feel is a bit "heavy duty" .
The improvment without the grilles is very noticable,alot clearer and definately more open and detailed.....IMO!
Treble sounds more closed in with grills on (Mission M73) - perhaps not such a bad thing for other owners of M73's and bright amps? Off for me.
Have mine on because of dust.
the way i prefer a females undergarments
oh that'll be off then
Off when in use, on when not.
on - kids
Are they starting to rub ,then
