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.

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 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!
Date published: 2011-03-13
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.

Is it possible to buy 2 and 1/4 yards? I need like 72" of material, and at $24 a yard, 30 " is a lot of waste.

I have cabinet doors in a new house that need speaker cloth? We intend to build frame, cover it with speaker cloth and mount it in doors. Is this fabric suitable? How does it compare to Mellotone's Speaker Grill Cloth Fabric Black Yard 36" Wide?

Asked by: DRuby
This will work well for that application. The difference between this and the premium is the thickness, the premium cloth is about twice as thick as the standard.

One yard is 3 feet, so this is only available in 3 foot increments. If you order a quantity of 3, you will get 9 feet of cloth.

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.

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.

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.
Answered by: RussR
