Speaker Grill Cloth Black Yard 70" Wide
Cant decide which of the two black fabrics (Mellotone or this one) to recover my floor standing DCM Time Windows. I was looking for the "thickness" of the two fabrics - are they simliar? DCM's usually used 1/4" foam originally. Do you sell 1/4 black foam
The Mellotone premium will be thicker than this cloth but neither will be close to 1/4" We do have grill foam available in 3/8" thickness which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/speaker-cabinet-grill-foam-19-wide-x-31-long-x-3-8-thick-black--260-519

Restoring JBL L100 grille frames; is this a suitable material?
I'm restoring (8) grille frames for JBL L100 speakers. The frames have a very sheer black fabric stretched tightly across the face of the grille; this fabric is not exposed but merely serves as a support, or backing for the thick "Quadrex"-patterned acoustical foam material which is glued down over it. Would this material be suitable for this purpose, or should I use the thicker (Mellotone Premium) material? Thank you.
This will work fine for that application.

Can this speaker cloth be used to effectively cover rigid fiberglass to make a bass trap or acoustic panel?
Yes, this could be used to cover fiberglass or mineral fiber in a trap or gobo.But any natural fiber loose-weave cloth will work in an acoustic panel. Your ears are not inside the panel. You shouldn't care if the cloth absorbs some high frequencies. Grille cloth is specifically made to pass all frequencies with little attenuation (and thus is more expensive). I have used cotton sheets on sale with excellent results.I have not tried to sew grille cloth. That might be problematical. If your plan involves sewing, you might want to consider something a little less acoustically transparent (but easier to sew) from a fabric shop.

What is the actual height of the material?
I see the width is 70" but i want to know how much height there is.
Item is sold by the linear yard, so the "height" is your choice, in 1 yard increments.

Can anyone attest to the acoustic transparency of this cloth?
Want to make a new grill for my HT speakers but want to make sure this cloth isn't gonna color my sound
As far as I can tell, this cloth causes no problems. If it made any difference in the sound it is very minor.
