Why not just perforate the areas for the speakers? The sides would be way off the main viewing area, and although the center may be right where you would notice a difference in brightness (centered, near the bottom 1/3), I bet the gain in brightness overall would outweigh any perceived differences.
Those of us with CRTs trying for the bigger screen sizes need all the help we can get, and I think you could perf a very small area and cover the sound and visual requirements.
Can this be done in a custom order?
Currently - Zenith 7" CRT, 80x60 1.3 gain screen
Soon to be - 107x60 1.3 gain...with ?Seleco 250 with Panamorph or "cheap" 9" CRT
Finally went digital: RS20, ISCO IIIs, DIY 10.5' wide torus screen, Stewart StudioTek 1.3 G3 with 4 way masking and adjustable image size
