Anyone done this before? Any ideas for making grills for this speaker? Or other ways to protect the speaker? Based on amazing reviews across the board I am ready to buy the Emotiva Airmotivs for my computer desk 2.1 system..but the exposed driver really scares me, someone(or me) could accidentally bump it, or if and when I use them for a party some drunken idiot will poke em or spill beer on them. The best way I think would be to implement the kind of cloth grill found on many Bookshelf speakers, with the four holes on the front where the pegs on the grill go in. I could use the peg kit available here: http://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-grills.html But I don't know what kind material or how thick is on the front of the airmotivs. Or maybe I could get pegs that will fit in the allen key holes that hold the drive on the Airmotiv?
Any help is appreciated
And if you would like to suggest alternatives to the Airmotivs, active, powered, passive, please do!
Airmotiv 5 and examples of speaker grills:
Middle one is a yamaha NS-BP400PN and the grill is shaped right around the driver and tweeter. The one on the right covers a whole speaker.
