    Speaker grill problem

    My kappa speaker grills vibrate and make an annoying sound, this sound stops if I put my foot on the grill though. Is there any easy way to fix this? Like maybe glue the grill or something?

    how do they attach ? If they are the push in. Then put you some grill cloth on the inside.

    they are push in, where do you buy grill cloth, like at any audio install place?

    Well, when someone gets in his car and accidentally pierces his speaker with their foot, he'll be hitting himself in the head, you stupid wanker.

    I'd be more afraid that I'd be carried away with all the fun and actually stomp the prick that shot back at another newbie for asking a serious question.

    Mine didn't vibrate, but one of them kept comming off. I took a toothpick and splooked a bit of black RTV adhesive in the crevice where the grille attaches. Problem solved. I figured RTV would come apart when I have to remove them.

    Yes sir. As will good old fashioned shoe goo. It's another good flexible adhesive, that can be removed when needed.
