Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transparent and Excellent Install PropertiesI purchased this a month ago to install on a large pair of Yamaha organ stage monitors that I’m re-engineering for home audio. Using push-pull pins for initial alignment followed with a staple gun, this fabric was very easy to provide a snug, professional appearance. I had no issues with any fabric runs using a staple gun. The deep black color looks like a factory fresh OEM job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wantedFirst off, Mellotone will work with remote controls. I have a home theater with the front row of seats at 12 feet and an IR bouncer that I hid behind a piece of this cloth at the screen wall. I sat in the front seats then tried 5 different remotes, Pioneer AVR, Oppo BD player, DVR, Dish Sat remote, Logitech Harmony 650 programmable remote and all worked with no fails at multiple angles. This material is much more black than the standard cloth and thicker. I really like the option of shiny on one side and dull on the other. The Mellotone, being thicker, is easier to work with as well. I am going to replace all of my current cloth with this cloth ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productI bought this last week and installed it on my custom speaker frames over the weekend. It looks great and was super easy to install. The color is a deep black and you can tell it's a high quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renewing the oldInfinity speakers of yesterday are nothing like todays build. I recently bought a pair of Monitor Audio Silver speakers, list price $2,200. I decided to compare the worn-out looking 1984 Infinity Reference Studio Monitor (RSM's) speakers to the new pair. Hands down, the Infinity blew the doors off of the Monitor Audio speakers. They are driven by Bob Carver's Phase Linear Model 400, Series Two amplifier delivering 200 watts per channel. So I decided to make them look like new. I veneered them in Cherry with a custom dark stain and replaced the grill cloth with the number one recommended Mellotone grill cloth. The Infinity logo badging attaches to the front of the grill with a tie-tack push pin. The cloth is so durable and thick, there was resistance pushing the pin through the fabric. After set-up and auditioning the new looking speakers, it was quite evident the cloth did not hamper the sound in any way. Parts Express, thanks for distributing such a wonderful product.

How strong & stretch resistant? Hoping to sew up tote bags for small powered monitors (10"x8"x7", 12 lbs ea), to be taken to a location, placed under furniture, hooked up, then start playing (remaining in their bags, unnoticed). Will this work?

Do you know this fabric's NRC anechoic termination? It should be a number from 0 to 1.0. Thanks.

I am sorry, this is not a specification that Mellotone supplies.

Is this visually transparent?  I would like to use this around my projection screen and will have speakers to the sides of the screen in the wall behind this fabric.  Will I see the speakers and framing?

Asked by: DevonS
This can be see-through if the area behind it is lighter in color or rear-lit. If everything behind this is black or a dark shade it will be very difficult to see through this cloth.

Is this Mellotone material as accoustically transparent as the thinner grill fabric you sell?  I'm looking for a product to cover a false wall in a home theater room.  My center channel will be behind the wall just below the projection screen. 

Asked by: KeithT
Yes this is also 100% acoustically transparent and its a popular choice for this application.

Would this material take well to acrylic paints?

I'm exploring different grill materials that I can airbrush with acrylic paints. For example. untreated polyester is easily painted and durable (after heat curing). Is it reasonable to assume that this may take well to paint? For the cost I'm willing to experiment, but might as well ask ahead of purchase. I also understand that acoustic transparency will be somewhat compromised by the paint, but that's fine for my application.
Asked by: Meat PoPsiclez
I think since the grill cloth & your paint contain polymers that react to solvents that I would buy a yard and test it first.
