    Hello,
    I searched, but did not find an answer so here goes:

    Does anyone have a link or supplier who can supply decorative speaker/grill cloth?

    I'm building some panel absorbers and bass traps and would like to cover them in something other than the standard black or white cloth.

    I'd actually like to disguise them as art if possible (like an old Monet print, a movie-reel pattern, or something), but finding cloth that fits the bill has been difficult.

    All help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    I'm doing the same, looking for custom audio screens. I found masquerade-speakers.com. Artcoustics is way too "sophisticated" for me.

    (Sorry no URLs... it didn't allow me since I just started)

    Any others?

    searching is not easy. Too many variants on the name:

    audio grills,speaker grills,audio screens,speaker fabric... everybody calls it something different.

    Fabric selectionis at acousticalsolutions.com/products/fabrics/grille_cloth.asp

    but i doubt you can paint on it.

    I did find a patent on the idea of decorated/painted speaker screens, granted to Noise Cancellation technologies. Geesh.
