The cloth on the pillars that house the Bose tweeters in my escalade are sagging. Especially In cold weather. When it warms up they are fine. Any idea how to repair this?

I attempted a repair with spray glue. I pulled the loose cloth off and reattached but it only held up for about 4-6 months. I ended up ordering new ones

How much did they cost? Was it an easy install?

Less than $50 each from the online dealers. I got mine through gmpartsdirect and one was $40 the other $45. I think they're about $75 each through the dealer. Installation was very easy. Just a couple bolts on each and the speaker wires.

Guys, mine does the same thing, has anyone thought about sanding and just painting them? I have black interior and think painted black would be better and would match the dash etc.

thanks,

Hmmmm, interesting thought! I can't remember what they look like under the cloth though. If they are completely smooth the best thing would do is to Plastidip them. Plastidip has almost the same exact texture and matte/satin finish as the dashboards in these trucks, I think it would look great and be an easy permanent fix!

I've actually just started the process of re-wrapping them in suede(black or darker grey) figuring my interior is black. Why buy new ones when the originals failed? Why not fix a problem with your own taste and make it look better. 😜
