Is the the Presonus E3.5 woofer speaker cone unprotected? It appears to have no fabric covering as many speakers would have.

Take a piece of t-shirt and bring it back and forth between your face and the monitors.. you will hear that even something like a tshirt of pantyhose, has a considerable effect on the sound projection. Also, having grills on the speaker looks cheap imo..

Yes - Most modern monitor speakers are that way. Engineers like to see the speakers moving as they mix. I have three different sets of monitor speakers by different manufacturers in my studio, and they are all uncovered.

Engineers prefer not to have any added obstruction between them and the monitors they mix on. Even the sheerest of grill cloths have a measurable effect on a monitors performance. Not sure about seeing the speakers move as you mix, can’t say that I’ve done much of that myself.
