Subject: HH speaker grille mesh
Date Posted: 17 September 2017 at 10:24pm
I just picked up another HH 4x12 speaker. Somebody at some point has painted something on the front grille. Then someone else presumably has sprayed over the top of that with silver paint.
Needless to say it looks a mess and I want to restore it back to original. I've a feeling any attempts to strip off the paint will end up destroying it, so I need to replace the grille mesh. it's the usual black plastic mesh stuff they used on all their speakers. However I can't seem to find any on the internet. Anybody know if this is still available from anywhere?

Doesn't show any on the spares area of his website. May have to go with something different.

This is my other 4x12. It's the same grille mesh as this.

Yes it's plastic. Would have been easier if it were metal, got access to a stripping tank!

As you can see it doesn't look too good at the moment and needs putting back to original.

I'm sure Terralec used to sell something similar to what you need. Other than that I wonder if something not too aggressive like acetone would shift the paint or as a last resort, spray over it with a satin black rattle can?    

 Edit; they still sell the stuff I'm thinking of but it's only 2' wide;

That's the stuff! and by happy coincidence 610mm is the exact width that it needs
I'll get some ordered up as soon as my bank account is unfrozen. Discovered today someone has somehow stolen my card details, and has been buying things and setting up standing orders!

Thanks NJW I owe you a beer

Happy to help! Thumbs Up And my missus says that the random crap that I seem to remember never comes in handy! I wasn't sure if 610mm wide would be enough for a 4x12 cab so that's a bit of a bonus too. Hope getting your bank account sorted isn't too much of a headache either.

I wasn't sure on the size either, but a quick measurement confirmed it would be just the job. A 1 metre piece will do nicely. At least one thing positive has come from today!

So someone has bought a VPS cloud whatever that is? along with some add ons for it using my bank details. 3 transactions in one day end of august and then one a day or so ago. Just noticed it this morning. Hopefully should get all the money back in a couple days.
