Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Extra CostHarder to cut and work with than the cheaper stuff, (Part #260-335) but worth the extra effort. End result looks totally professional. Why build a top quality speaker system with cheap speaker cloth that will rip and/or fade after a few years?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grill clothI purchased this to redo a couple of Dahlquist DQ-10 speakers. The material was extremely easy to work with. I was able to stretch it and remove any and all wrinkles with little effort. The finished product looks like the speakers came that way from the factory. The high frequencies come through perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the extra $You can buy cheaper material but this is worth the extra dollar or two per speaker. Because it is strong, it is easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from you get what you pay forOther materials are thin and flimsy, this is nice thick quality, easy to work with, great finished product. I especially like the attenion to customer service from these guys, I can't put my finger on 1 thing particuolar, but they make you feel welcomed and secure in your purchase. I like the little welcome gift and catalog they send, most companies are to cheap !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb FabricPerfect texture and blackness for a speaker fabric. The shinier, finer textured side is the back side, in my view. Install with the coarser textured side facing out and your speakers will look great.A bit more expensive than other fabrics but well worth it for this product that is made in the USA. It doesn't get any better than this in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly as a fabric cover for a PA powered speakerI'm a professional musician and I needed to "dress up" my well-used but still great sounding JBL Eon 15P-1 for when I do wedding gigs and other formal events.JBL didn't have the fabric cover for my speaker in stock, so I had to sew one together myself using the Mellotone Premium Black Speaker Cloth for the front and windbreaker-quality nylon for the sides and back.For my purpose, it worked perfectly. The fabric is very dark black and "disappears" in a dark setting so the focus is on me the musician. :-) And in brightly-lit situations, the Mellotone cloth adds a touch of class. It definitely screams quality!At the end of the night when I pack my equipment, I gently fold my fabric speaker cover and at the next gig I unfold it and it's completely wrinkle free.This probably not was its intended use, but so far it's working great for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, Great LookThis product really put the finished touch to my Home Theater. Easily cuts with scissor, used hot glue and a few staples. Just enough stretch to make a tight, I used the rougher texture side because the shiny side did not appeal to me. I covered klipsch W-5502 speakers left, right and center channel (Before and After photos below). The finished product looked professionally installed. I will buy again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black as black gets..As previously reviewed, no purple, or brown or greyish tintat all; just black. Tight, sturdy weave.Not cheap, but this is a case of "get what you pay for".This will go on every project!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price, Good Product, Good service.Recently, I bought the Black Mellotone Grill Cloth. I ordered one yard @ 64" wide. This was enough to recover 3 Peavey 2X12" Combo Amps. Very nice material, Thick and easy to work with. I also used an off-white piping around the the Peavey grill frame and did away with Peavey's hidious vertical, Aluminum side Mouldings. I straightened the Peavey logo out against the jet-black new grill and You would not believe the difference in appearence! Beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good QualityVery Black with no purple sheen. Easily cuts with cheapo scissors. Just enough stretch to to make a tight, good-looking grill. I used the rougher texture side showing out which is a less shiny and went better with my living room decor. Would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth itThis is very high quality cloth. It is dead black, thick and strong, but has very good acoustical transparency.

Mellotone Premium Black Speaker Grill Cloth Yard 64" Wide

was this product sold already in 2007?

Back then I purchase a speaker cloth that sounds familiar to this Mellotone cloth, I need order more to match the existing speakers but no sure if this was the item I purchasedThank you
Asked by: jairoson
Yes, it was sold but dye loots, fading and other slight changes would discount a perfect match. Come close.

will the mellotone cloth allow signals from tv or dvd remotes to pass through

I would not count on it. Best to use an IR repeater for reliable control.

Can I buy 40" x 64" (just over a yard. ) ? What would the cost be for that quantity?

Mellotone Premium Black speaker grill cloth Yard, 64" wide. I need 40". 36" is not enough!
Asked by: Dwayne
This product (and all our grill cloth, in fact) is sold by the linear yard, not by fractions of a yard. You can order one yard, two yards, and so forth, but not one and a half or anything similar. In your case, you would need to buy two yards of fabric.

Ordering Question

I need a piece of this fabric about 48" x 84". If I place an order for a quantity of three yards, will I receive one continuous piece of fabric? (That is, not three separate one-yard pieces...) thanks!
Asked by: BillyIL
Yes, if your order more than one yard, the product will be delivered in one continuous piece, not multiple pieces of one yard each.
