Speaker Cabinet Carpet Jet Black Yard 54" Wide
I plan to apply this to a pvc pipe (homemade subwoofer tube). Should I sand the surface first, and will Super 90 adhesive work for this?
Lastly, silly question, but is the smoother side of the carpet supposed to face down or up? Thanks.
Sanding with a medium grit paper (80-150) will allow the adhesive to work better by giving it more surface area to adhere to. Just be sure to clean the surface very well after sanding.Super 90 will may dry a bit hard for your application. I would suggest Super 74 or Super 76, both are recommended for plastics and carpet. People use Super 77 a lot for regular speaker cabinets. It is available here on P-E and may serve you well too.Also, the smoother side of the carpet usually faces down. However, if you like the looks of it do what you like best.

Which adhesive to use
I tried a liquid contact cement and a roller but it didnt hold the material down at all. Which adhesive is good to use when applying this to MDF?
Your best bet is spray adhesive, like 3M Super 77. Some people like to apply some low heat while smoothing down the carpet. I don't think it helps the glue, but it will make the carpet more flexible.As with any speaker covering prep is important, so make sure your surface is free of dust and oil. For a little extra "grab' you might try to rough up the MDF a bit with some low grit sand paper, just make sure to remove all dust with compressed air and tack cloth before putting on the glue. Do a test application on a bit of scrap, and find out what works best for you.

Hello, will this carpet fade in sunlight? I would like to use this to recover the rear deck in my car and also cover a couple speaker boxes. Thank you for your time.
In my personal experience it will not. I have a section of this on my back dash for a few years without any problems.
