When we introduced the Stainless Steel Screen, that solved a lot of aesthetic problems. Though we introduced the screen as a protection for the speaker, it did change the look. The wall-mounted speaker now had a complete chrome finish. That worked very well with most swimming pools, and complemented the underwater lights. This was around the time we changed the name of the product to the Diluvio™ Underwater Loudspeaker.
We have had customers who like that black dot with the chrome surround. I remember one customer who inquired about our speakers. When I informed him that the stainless steel screen was available, he started getting upset. He let me know, in no uncertain terms, that the black dot was the look he wanted. Who could have guessed?
