Childproofed Carver Amazing Silvers

Post by marantzfan » Tue Aug 24, 2010 7:59 pm

They say that necesity is the mother of invention, well I need to have my Amazings in my living room which is my 2 year olds domain the majority of the day. He has already taken out one ribbon with a toy meets speaker mishap, so I've been trying to figure out a way that my son and my amazings can coexist in one space.

Well, I thought and thought....and read a thread over on audiokarma where someone proposed using screen door material to screen off the ribbons. Within 24 hours, this is what I came up with. The front screening is held in place by nothing but the tension holding the ribbon on the baffle. The rear screens I made to size and attached to the rear of the ribbons with double stick tape. I wanted to make something that could easily be removed and wouldn't permanently alter (read hack) the speakers. What do you guys think?

I used a black vinyl mesh on mine , I would be concerned about using any metal on the ribbons due to all the magnets ... :-k

The screening material is grey fiberglass....I had the same concerns about using aluminum screening. [-X

If the little one gets threw that they do make that screening in kevlar you know!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
