RE: GE SuperRadios

That's just it, on  my Tivoli radio - what must be an early production unit,
bought around a year ago - there are no retnaing tabs to hold the speaker
grille in, it appears to have been attached by just two tiny dabs of
adhesive of some sort.

I would bet they have fixed the problem in later production runs.

Have you notified the manufacturer about it?  They might repair it for you
if it's under warranty.  If not, you can try opening the set up and
looking for some little tabs on the rear of the grille.  Bend them back
against the front panel.  That should hold them in.  To stop any potential
rattling, you can put a TINY dab of glue (hot glue-gun glue is the best
for this) on each spot where a tab touches the panel.

But tell the manufacturer first to see if they can do it for you under
warranty.  And thanks for the info because now I know what to look for
when I start shopping around for one!! :)
