Hi,

I would like to change the speaker cloth on the front covers of my Penta's, but it seems to be difficult to find a shop where they sell this.

Online I found two webshops 'akustikstoff.com'  and 'conrad.de' where they seem to have some choice. My problem is know what is the correct color for the Penta covers? On screen everything seems to be too light.

Does someone have an idea of what could be the correct color? Thanks!

 

Regards,

Kiki

It is very difficult to compare colours on a PC screen. I see from the store you linked to you can order a sample pack from them. It looks like it includes one of every colour so I would order a sample pack and that should help.

Looking at the screen samples I would think "12" or "13" but probably if there was a shade between those I'd say  "12.5" Whistle .

With the PC screen I would say "12" is the nearest.

Good luck

Good evening,

I have received my cloth from Akustikstoff, I chose the coulour "13", and here are the results :

The original cloth colour on the left is quite different from the new one on the right, but considering the original one is really old and dirty, it is difficult to compare; however the lining is different too but it should be OK when all frames are changed

I think it looks great. These fabric look better than the old ones.

Probably some purists will hate the "metallic" look. As far as I know, B&O never used fabrics with a metallic look.

But how did you fix the fabrics at the tray? Did you glue it?

Wow, great, I am using neoprene transparent glue and it's easy; but the top panel is way more complicated due to its curb; I don't know how to do it without cutting angles...
