Does removing the speaker grille / cover, improve sound quality ?
On my brother's Klipsch KSB3.1's we found that after removing the metal grill the highs were a tad cleaner. The difference was subtle, but it was enough to know the difference wasn't just in our heads. He left them on because it doesn't look that good with the grill off though. I have my grills off just because I love the look of the Klipsch copper colored woofers.
You should try. Depending on the grill material the sound may change by a dB or so, specially in mids and highs.
I found 2 benefits of removing grills. 1. I like the sound better. 2. My cats can't destroy them.
Some companies go as far as tuning their speakers with the speaker grilles because they've noted the change in response the materials have.
Take Wilson audio for example at the bottom link.
