 Since Ebay fees have gone up again I intend to list these less often. I will list them from the beginning of the month and will continue listing until one set remain unsold. Once that happens I will not list again till the beginning of the next month. So, if you are interested in a set but not ready to purchase, just keep the listing on your watch list and contact me when you're ready to buy.

This item is a set foam speaker fronts for NAIM SBL speakers. They are made from "HiFi35" foam which is the industry standard and is designed to be acoustically transparent. The foam is graded at 35 PPI or Pores Per Inch. As you can see from the photographs they are cut out to the rear to provide clearance for the drivers. Also please not the edges at the front are bevel cut. There is some debate about the angles of the bevels on the originals but these are cut at around 45 degrees all round.

I have had these evaluated by several SBL owners and I am happy that they are very close to the originals in both fit and performance.

I sell quite a lot of acoustic foam on E-bay and have made several different foam fronts for other speakers including Linn Saras,  a couple of Castle models and some Mission 727s.

The top ones measure 266mm by 140mm, and the bottom ones measure 266mm x 250mm. They are 20mm thick.

Check the feedback on these, you'll find buyers from Switzerland, Italy and Hungary, Hong Kong, France plus a customer in Singapore who's had about 8 sets so far.

BY THE WAY. I am happy to quote for other speakers, all I need is a sketch with ACCURATE measurements and I'll give it a go. If I accept the challenge I'll always offer a full refund if you're not happy with the results. IBLs  possibly, anyone got the measurements???

Here's a note I received from a recent customer:-

The grills arrived yesterday. They fitted perfectly, look very smart, and make the speakers look like new. (Well almost).
The bevelled edges look really good. It is impossible to know how the originals were shaped because so much of that foam had crumbled away, and look irregularly rounded.
