As an FYI, Magnepan does sell replacement fabric. I changed the ones on my cherry wood 3.6's. I may explore the gray fabric option, but my 1.6's, 10's and CC3 are all black.
How difficult was it to change?
...but everyone I know who has the luxury of being able to pull them further out into the room definitely prefers it that way.
I had a pair of MG12Qrs in the white fabric with dark cherry rails and thought they looked awesome. As for replacing the fabric, I replaced the fabric on a pair of 1.6s. What a pain it was; never seen so many staples. The fabric I used was speaker grill cloth purchased from parts express. This is with new fabric:
I guess it just bugs the hell out of me that folks say you cant do have be whatever, because THEY decided it has to be so.
And did you OWN them in a small room...
Any speaker will sound better when pulled out further into the room, but with Maggies it is absolutely essential, assuming you want to hear what they are truly capable of. If not, why bother running them with high end electronics? Yes, two different models in two different rooms. In addition to that I’ve heard numerous models in numerous rooms of various shapes and sizes. The bottomline is bigger rooms have more potential than smaller rooms, and Maggies like all other speakers sound better when positioned further out into the room away from the walls.
One can put them in any room if they so desire. However as stated correctly WILL perform so much better in proper sized room. We are offering suggestions not dictating Maggie Law. Set up is critical with Maggies for Optimum performance. If one is happy with getting what they get so be it.
Elizabeth, I totally agree with you about placement. I have mine 3' from the back wall and tried them at 4' in my 17x17 room with 9 foot ceilings and the improvement in sound was minimal.
Okay, 12 inches didn't make much of a difference, but only a few hours earlier you said... "Play around with positioning, even 1/2" can make a huge difference."
I’d like to try Maggies in my room/system. The main issue I have is the limited space I can give behind them (3ft MAX, puts them 7ft to the main listening position).
You have conflicting opinions about the main issue as stated above. As for the secondary issue of cosmetics, that is only something you can decide.
