Loudspeaker Grille Fixings & Speaker Gasket Materials.

About Grille Fixings

      Domestic loudspeakers are usually fitted with a loudspeaker grille and this is attached to the front of the speaker cabinet. This grille frame is usually removable and requires special types of plastic or metal fixings. Half of the grille fixing remains embedded in the speaker cabinet whilst the other half is attached to the grille frame. The two halves can then be pulled apart.
      The type of grille fixing used depends upon the weight of grille frame it has to support. QTA Systems have a selection of grille fixings, the smallest being metal and suited for small enclosures, whilst the larger plastic mouldings are best suited for medium to large cabinets.

About Neoprene and EPDM Gasket Strip.

      Neoprene strip has a large number of uses in providing air-tight seals between adjoining surfaces. It can be blown into a honeycombe structure and moulded into sheet and strip products. As a closed cell foam and with a self adhesive backing it is ideal for loudspeaker gasket strip. QTA Systems can provide a selection of Neoprene or EPDM strip for use as Speaker Gaskets in various widths and thicknesses.
