Speaker cabinet grill cloths can deteriorate over the years, or perhaps your pet uses yours as a scratching post and has torn it to bits. Whatever the case, there is no need to have a professional recloth your speaker grill. Simply buy the appropriate amount of speaker cloth to fit over the speaker grill and attach it using glue or staples.

  1. 1

    Measure your speaker grill. Add 2 to 4 inches to all sides so you have enough slack to work with when attaching the cloth to the back of the grill.

  2. 2

    Purchase the appropriate amount of speaker grill cloth as determined in Step 1. Use scissors to cut the cloth if necessary to alter the dimensions upon purchase.

  3. 3

    Remove the speaker grill from the speaker cabinet and cut off the old cloth using scissors.

  4. 4

    Lay the new cloth on a flat surface. Place the speaker grill, face down, in the middle of the cloth.

  5. 5

    Fold the corners and sides of the cloth over the frame of the grill. Pull the cloth tight to avoid wrinkles. Staple the cloth to the grill. If the grill material is metal or can't be stapled, use industrial strength glue to secure the cloth to the frame.
