    Typically, the less between you and the speaker drivers is best. I leave my grills on for aesthetic purposes.

    I leave them on...
    1)'cause I have no place good to stash them.
    2)I'm less likely to stick something through a driver with them on.

    Some speaker makers claim their grills are designed to improve the sound, but I think that's BS. I suspect most people tend to leave them on, but take them off for pictures. Why? 'cause all those drivers & tweeters look f---ing sweet!

    I too leave mine on - but I have seen charts were people have measured freqency responce with them on and with them off. There is a small, but measureable, difference. I haven't tried to do any blind tests to determine if there is an audible difference. I suspect there is a small degradation, I mean who would want to have a conversation with someone speaking on the other side of a curtain?

    Besides, I have two young children and the tweeters would be too tempting - a little finger might have fun pushing it in and I don't want to try pulling it back out.

    Most recording studios use a type of nylon just before the mic, if you like 'em on leave em on if you don't then don't
