Replacing speaker cloth


Replace your speaker cloth.

For this repair you need:

  • Sufficient speaker cloth
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • A chisel / knife
  • Sandpaper
  • A pair of pliers
  • Aipe
  • Degreasing agent, for example, ammonia


Remove the old loudspeaker cloth of the frame. Sometimes it's so well glued you need pliers to remove it.
Replace speaker cloth: remove the old cloth from the grill / frame


Remove the adhesive residue from the frame with a chisel.

Make the frame a bit rougher with sandpaper so that the new adhesive will bond well.

Wipe the frame to clean it, preferably with a degreasing agent.

Place the frame / frames on the loudspeaker cloth. If you use two pieces of cloth for two frames make sure you check the weaving (whiff) is the same for both. If the direction of the weaving is different there will be an (optical) color difference. This can be overcome by ordering a larger piece of cloth (for example, 2 x 1 meter). You can specify it in your order in the 'comments field'.
Replace speaker cloth: measure the size of speaker cloth needed for your grille / frame


Cut the speaker cloth tailored for each frame. Cut large enough to hold a wafer edge around.
