    Hi guy's,
    I am trying to locate some suppliers of speaker grill cloth for an entertainment center my friend just had built. I want to cover the 3 speaker locations with tan or beige cloth. Did a search and came up with nothing. Need some help here from all you DIY speaker builders, can you tell me where or who carries this cloth in different colors?
    Thanks
    John

    Go to Radio Shack, or a local car audio shop and they should have plenty of grill cloth.

    I got my speaker grill cloth from "G Street Fabrics" in Centerville, Virginia (or is it Chantilly, Virginia?). Call (703)555-1212 for their number. They carry Black and Brown, not tan that I recall.
    I puchased off-the bolt quantities there for covering large in-wall openings in my HT.

    Thanks Tony,
    But it has to be tan or a beige because of the color of the wood.

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the post. After searching around I remembered ordering from them when I was a installer. Nice stuff

    Hey Julian,
    I did check with both Parts Ex. and Madisound they both only carry black or brown cloth. I would not let the thread go without thanking you for your help here and on the many other threads you help others so that we all may learn something from your expertise. Thanks
    Jeff,
    Thank you for the site to get the cloth I need, wasn't sure if I was going to find what I needed. But I knew someone one this forum would be able to send me in the right direction. Thank you.
    John

    Markertek has speaker cloth, in both "beige/tan" and "white/bone" colors, in a couple of different fabric materials. -- I've been looking for cloth, too, although I haven't yet ordered any. Price is about $20 per linear yard (by 33"-36" wide).
    Many of you already know that Markertek is a large, established audio-video supply house, with generally very good pricing.

    If you really want something that looks great try:

    I used on 1940's RCA cloth on my enclosures and even the wife likes how it looks

    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.
