In the process of relocating and about the list the house. I have B&W in ceiling speakers that I DO NOT want to leave for the next owner. Choice number one is to buy cheapo replacements, choice number two is to buy blanks to fill the voids left when i remove my speakers. Can someone point me to a website or store where I can find "blanks"... I've been trying to find something online without much luck. Thanks in advance!

Maybe you could just use a dummy grill cover. Line the inside with some black paper if any light comes through.

Yeah I thought about that, but it's code I have either a replacement speaker or a solid plate covering the opening (depending on the home inspector, it could be an issue). Going to call a local installer to see what they may have, otherwise I'll grab some cheapo's from monoprice or the shack.

If I'm a buyer, I want you to replace them not just do a cover up.

I decided to just go the monoprice route, they are an exact fit... hoping to get away cheap on it, but ultimately I want the house to sell and a few hundred bucks to replace the in ceilings throughout the house is worth it. Still cheaper then leaving even one set of the B&W's.
