question about grills....

Hi all,

Just bought a pair of Quad 22L2s, and must say they sound pretty nice right out the box. But I have a question for the experts.

Do must of y'all listen with our without the grills on? Also, if I leave the speakers exposed, how careful to I have to be with them? I have two cats who will most likely be interested in sniffing them and bumping into them. Are they super fragile and shouldn't even be touched, or can they handle a little bumping from out kitties? The first speakers I loved -- a way too-expensive pair of Audio Note didn't have grilles, so I'm curious whether there is any sonic benefits to not using them.

Thanks in advance!

If you have curious kitties I would leave the grills on.

As far listning with grills on or off, I would let my ears be the judge. For myself, I usually leave the grills on.
My current speakers don't have grills, but my last pair did, and I left them off on the grounds that the grills made the speakers look more like scratching posts -- thought the material might be just the thing to attract a scratchy-minded Kitty. Have never had trouble with scratching that way. There have been some threads here on Kitty control. John

Yeah, check out the "DOG" speaker protection thread.
