    I am trying to find a source for 1 sq metre of black or brown speaker cloth material. Has anyone got any ideas please.
    It's for covering the equipment cabinet doors. Don't want to use smoked glass as this won't allow any ventilation.

    Not there anymore because I'm at Uni in Brighton now.

    If I remmember rightly they should have a multitude of different coloured speaker fabrics in. They should have a fair bit in as there are always a lot of multicoloured cars going in.:D

    Ordered it from Maplin in the end at 3.00 in the
    afternoon and it was on my doorstep at 7.30 the next morning
    and all for less than a fiver. Outstanding.

    I've just come across this thread and I'm intrigued by the idea of using speaker grille cloth as part of equipment cabinet doors.

    Forgive the naive question but does speaker cloth allow the passage of remote signals? I don't have any to hand (even on my speakers) and can't experiment.

    Yes. It'll let through pretty much anything except dust and will also block the light (from equipment displays) to a minimal extent.

    Richard,

    Many thanks for the speedy reply. This is good news: I can think about a grille-cloth covering for my new equipment cabinet; much more manageable as a DIY project than the custom-made smoked-glass doors I originally had in mind.

    Belated thanks to MJ for starting the thread.
