B&W Matrix 801 series 2

Here is a little problem ...... I shipped my speakers from one country to another. In the process a rat got into the cargo and made a mess of the fabric on the top horizontal surface of one of the speakers. The fabric now needs to be replaced.

Does anyone know how?

I have asked B&W by email if they have any suggestions or an AutoCad layout showing the speaker construction. Sadly B&W are not quite good with email. I will send them a letter in the post to see if that helps any.

There is one B&W dealer in this country but it is a 15 hour drive in each direction so .... I think I need to help myself.

Does anyone have any suggestions, I took out the main bass speaker to have a look behind but I cannot work out how the top comes off (or is held on).

One a related note ... can anyone tell me what the name of the fabric is (since I also will have to source that as well).

So ... I have not a clue .... please let me know how to proceed ...

Hi and welcome to the forum

Good idea but no, I was living in another country at the time of purchase and I no longer know how to find them .....

My experience is that British firms are not always good at replying to emails. You know, they sent all their innovative folk to Australia and those who remained... The best is to call them. With skype you could do almost without cost.
