    I made some homemade wall treatments out of foam, cotton batting, wood and a canvas type cloth (beige/natural). Since filling out the room with them, my darker walls are lighter...and the side walls are now a little refelctive from my RPTV. Any idea if black speaker cloth would be very reflective to light? I could cover them all in the black...and it would mesh with my speakers, equipment rack, tv and coloring...but the cloth is kinda expensive, and I don't want to make the jump to order it if it will be as reflective.

    Thanks.

    Well, I think some speaker cloth has a "sheen" to it that'll make it look more charcoal colored than black in certain bright light... but I wouldn't call it reflective.

    However, speaker cloth can be kind of see-through, especially when stretched. So, your batting might show through.

    Have you thought about just dying the canvas?
