Alto Aviation, a supplier of business jet cabin audio systems, is urging completion and refurbishment centers to rethink speaker grille construction.

“It is one of the most common problems we encounter,” according to the Leominster, Mass.-based company. “Sound waves are made up of the compression and expansion of air [and] if air can’t move through the speaker grille, then the sound can’t get into the cabin.”

Alto recommends speaker coverings that are at least 50-percent open to ensure the best audio performance.
