    I just got a pair of S26's as mains plus my s-center (original series). I'm thinking they look better with the grills off. Would that be "tacky" to leave them off ?

    what would make it tacky?
    mine are both off and on depending on my mood. sometimes i think one way looks 'better' than the other way. my friends say i have way too much time on my hands...

    I keep the grills off my S26s. I like the copper colored cones. My fiancee doesn't understand, but she also doesn't give me any grief over it.

    I like them better with them off also....but I have kids around and that could be a disaster waiting to happen !

    It comes down to personal preference. If you don't hear any sonic differences, go for asthetics. I leave my grilles on, but take them when showing people my system for the first time.

    There's also the dust issue too I suppose.
