Hello.

I recently acquired a Zenith 6-S-152. Looking into possible replacing the speaker cloth. Only would want to replace it on the possible chance in trying to clean it, it becomes damaged in some way. Wanted to get the exact same one, or a close as possible match. From old posts on this forum people were talking about getting replacement cloth from grillecloth.com. When I looked that up, the website doesn't show anywhere that they have grill cloth. I also checked Radio daze but they only have a very few, and not what I am looking for. I know ebay has a bunch, but again, not anything I saw that was close to the original.

Does anyone know where I can find this grill cloth or something similar. The cloth is a golden color, if you look at it straight on, the pattern is faint and has an irregular connecting oval shape to it. Something like a honeycomb shape. But if you look at it from the top on an angle downwards there is this wide zig-zag pattern to it.
I am almost certain this is the original cloth on there. (from information from previous owner)

Here are some photos. (I'm sure cloth is dirty)

Thanks,
Walter

It's honestly a problem. A lot of patterns were being reproduced for awhile and aren't anymore. This is the list the forum has of grille cloth (and all other parts) vendors:

I'm not sure if this pattern is being reproduced. If not, either you'll have to be careful with your original or find something else that pleases you.

Thank you very much.

If I can't find anything there, it probably doesn't exist.

Thanks again,
Walter

Go to your local fabric store, and see if you can get a yard of a similar style. Take a pic with you on your phone.
