I know someone here on craftster can solve my problem!

I have a pair of sattelite speakers (the little ones that are used for surround sound) that have been beat to all hell, and look even worse.  i'd love to re-cover them, but i'm at a loss as to how to do this.  you can't remove the speaker cover (like you can with those old gigantic ones) unless you rip it.  i'm no where near knowledgeable enough to take the things completely apart and re-assemble them, and they are pretty expensive. 

any ideas as to how i should do this, and what kind of fabric can be used?

Seems to me that there's all kinds of ways to cover those.  For the fronts, try using "screening" material that you buy for re-screening your windows....flexible enough to work with and could be attached with some heavy duty glue or industrial strength velcro.  The rest of the speaker could be covered with contact paper or the self-adhesive material that you find at fabric stores.  That would give you all kinds of options as far as patterns to coordinate with the rest of your decor.

Hope this helps.

you can buy speaker cloth at most fabric stores, its usually in the craft section. its designed to not distort sound (it might be a better choice than a wire or synthetic mesh)

I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to attach it though. I had a look at my speakers, and they have a hood around the casing that snaps off so that the speaker cloth can be replaced (presumably with a heavy duty glue)
