    Yes. It will "soak up" the highs. If you go this route, use the thinnest material you can find, and expect to boost the treble somewhat to compensate.

    Yes definitely it will affect the sound, I really wouldn't recommend it if you are serious about music and such.

    Why don't you use acoustic speaker grille as your drap or cover that should not affect much?

    If the drapes are acoustically transparent (sheers), it shouldn't have any effect on the sound. What about putting the TV behind drapes[​IMG].

    If the speakers have to go behind curtains or drapes because the wife wants them hidden, then go with in-wall speakers.
