What is the preference regarding speaker grilles, using the speakers with them on or off? As they come off fairly easily I guess it is a personal choice, but is there any advantage to using the audio setup with them on or off?
Some people think the sound is slightly affected by the sound passing through the grille or they prefer the look of the speakers being hidden (or on show). If you have kids it might be better to keep them covered as they seem to be obsessed with pushing the centres in.
Yes there is a huge advantage with leaving them on. With them off, the little 'un would find the cones irresistible and would no doubt poke them like mad. You'll find this affects the sound quality a lot, a night and day difference you might say.
