Hello All,

I’m new here and would first like to say hello to all of you.

I’m building speaker cabinets for my father in law. The face frames are completely covered with speaker cloth and will need go snap or clip on for easy removal to allow access to the speakers. Does anyone know what kind of hardware I need for this and where I could get it?

Thanks in advance.

Ron

Rather than metal hardware, I find the smaller fine type of Velcro dots work well and hold fast against that kind of vibration.

I hadn’t thought of that. That seems like an easy solution. Thanks.

I agree with UnionLabel on the Velcro. I have a 6-way surround sound system, and I built the 4 main big speakers for it, and bought the subwoolfer and center speaker. These are made in Germany, and I couldn’t build them to my specs. But I bought the speaker cloth covers from Radio Shack(years ago), and the Velcro closures and some other components there. You can get Velcro at WalMart, though. If it’s not what you’re after, try a audio- video store. They’ll have it.
