Why Do We Need a Metal Speaker Grill?

Speaker grills, also known as speaker grilles, are generally found to cover various types of loudspeakers. They are designed to protect driver element and speaker internals from external impacts and penetrations from foreign objects; meanwhile, they need to let the sound clearly pass.

Speaker grills cover in front of speakers which is in the direct path of the sound, so the quality of speaker grills interacts the sound produced. Generally, there are two main types of grilles in the market: speaker grille cloth and metal speaker grill as shown in the right picture:

From the comparison, you will find that metal speaker grille is the best choice for long term use. However, the speaker’s output level must be considered when you are purchasing metal speaker grilles.

For example, more perforated holes on speaker grills mean a better sound effect yet less protection. Instead, too much material in front of speaker will result in distortion of high sound and sometimes may damage the speaker. So there is no a perfect speaker grill, but a suitable one to fit your speaker with an excellent combination of superb protection and sound effects. And we are specialist to help you find the combination based on your applications of speaker grills.
