Audio Applications

Custom speaker grills, manufactured from perforated metal panels, improve the appearance and performance of audio equipment. Perforated metal speaker grilles, for example, are top-rated options for customized sound systems. At Accurate Perforating Company, we specialize in manufacturing custom metal speaker grilles that are high quality and reliable.


Types of Speaker Grills

Speaker grilles come in various types, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Some of the more common types include:

  • Mesh grilles: These are manufactured from a thin sheet of perforated metal or plastic with small holes punched in it. They are the most common type of grill that offers a good balance of protection and sound quality. However, they can diffract sound waves, affecting the sound of specific pieces.
  • Waffle grilles: These grills have a series of raised squares or rectangles. They are more durable than metal mesh grilles and can help diffuse sound waves. However, they block more sound than typical perforation due to the manufacture of the raised type pattern.
  • Foam grilles: Foam grills start with a soft, absorbent material. While they are superior at protecting speakers from dust and dirt, they tend to absorb sound waves, forcing the user to turn up the volume.

Before choosing a specific type of speaker, you'll need to ask what you are trying to do with the unit. This can help your product and engineering teams develop the right concept for your sound needs. Accurate Perforating can help you make the custom speaker grill of your dreams.

Benefits of a Perforated Speaker Grill

A quality perforated speaker grill can make all the difference regarding sound quality, product longevity, and branding. A metal mesh speaker grill has to be a triple performer — delivering acoustics, aesthetics, and durability. The speaker grill is carefully designed to allow appropriate sound while protecting the speaker components from the elements. At the same time, it provides a design that accurately represents the product.

Perforated metal is the best material to meet the unique requirements needed for intricate speaker grilles and screens. Accurate Perforating Company supplies standard and customized speaker mesh metal grills to manufacturers, designers, architects, and sound engineers.
