    We can fly to the moon, but
    Would anyone know if (WAF friendly) grilles for above loudspeakers exist,? obvious nothing seem to be available from makers.

    Could always ask a person with time on their on their hands to knit (or crochet!) some nice slip over covers....they have to allow for the port holes and connections just to make it an interesting job.

    Give a challenge to the local knitting circle?

    @Markie on here makes beautiful replacements for the old Kytes (I bought some and was very pleased), perhaps he could make something - you would have to stick on some "hook" material to the baffle to grab the foam.

    Or a pair of tights over the cabinet? :D

    Don't mind the LS50 look, but I can appreciate the problem posed by youngsters.

    The Kyte OTOH, just looks fugly. I've read several reviews that praise the sound but give a thumbs down to the aesthetic.

    I don't mind their look at all

    My bad. I should have added an 'imho'.

    Thanks for all comments, would have hoped for something "fit and forget"
    I even tried my RX3 mid driver grill on Kyte but no luck.

    This is exactly what I did with my LS50’s for some protection and also to make them a bit inconspicuous in the living room (pic, zoom in pls)[​IMG]
    Worked out well, and if you take the “grilles” off, the velcro dots are not too obvious. (Excuse the speaker/system mish-mash, having a bit of fun during lockdown last year.)

    How would anything be 'fit & forget'?
