Got the full Sonos home theater (Arc, Sub, One’s) but...have a potential problem with the Sub.  I have two VERY inquisitive and playful cats...who are starting to play in the Sub’s hole--I’m scared they are going to put a hole in or rip the speakers.  Are there any kind of grill coverings I can get for the sub, or other ideas, to keep their paws out of the insides?

Thanks

You could get a “skin” to cover the Sub like this:

Thanks, but, I didn’t want to cover up the whole thing, just to cover the hole.

Can you scare them out with a blast of very loud, very bass-heavy music?

What @GuitarSuperstar suggested is acoustically neutral; anything else just trying to cover the hole is likely to have an effect on the sound. And you do need free movement of air for a good bass sound.

The covers or a home-made cover really is the best solution. For your home made one you could even use cheesecloth or a mesh material that wouldn’t hide the computer.

If you just want to cover the holes make a matched pair of covers using acoustically transparent material in a stiff frame and hook them together through the Sonos center hole with a rubber band or light spring.

I have had dogs at home since 1997, and I am entitled to say therefore that one can carry this no cruelty to animals too far. 

I don't see that the suggestion is particularly cruel, but it may not be a permanent solution. A cloth cover that is loose fitting keeps the dust out of my Sub without affecting performance and a similar cover should serve for this purpose.
