View Full Version : Acoustical fabric
13-03-2006, 09:22 AM
I'm planning to cover my LENRDS with some acoustical fabric because when I move this summer because I'll have my cinema in the living room. Does anyone know where I can source this kind of fabric? :?~:-?~:???:
I've found some in black, but I would like something similar to the burgundy red of my Auralex DST114 or another nice colour. :nod:
I plan to make some independent fabric covered plates that I can attach to a framework with Velcro. Does this sound OK or are there any other solutions I should consider?
I'll build two vertical ones in the front corners and I'll also make a rectangular one across the ceiling with the electrical screen inside. I plan to put in a couple of down lights in this box. Anyone know some good 220v down lights in the lower price range?
Will this be enough bass trapping for my new room of 21 square meters and 2,4m high ceiling? :?~:-?~:???:
How about this Hans?

Thanks Jase :thumbup:
Anyone got any idea how good this brand is and prices?
And keep the suggestions coming guys.
Prices for that fabric here:-
Not sure if it's a well known brand or not though. :?~:-?~:???:

I found a brand called SoundSuede (http://www.acousticalsolutions.com/products/fabrics/soundsuede.asp) on google which looks much smoother which IMO will look better. Any other options which is smooth looking? Fire hazard is also important and the prices doesn't look to bad on the ones I've found.

Does anyone have some first hand experiance with Guilford of Maine (http://samples.interfacefabrics.com/?1142346503760)?
It is often recommended over at AVS.
Is it OK to use staples to attach the fabric to the frame, or do I need to use glue also?

Got some samples from GOM today :thumbup:
I've ordered some more samples in different blacks, but I'm leaning toward the one on the right here.

bit late in the day here but...
guildford of main is the same as the fabric on CA site, and the same as used by RPG europe, and RPG Inc, and most other fabric covering people!
If your going to make a basstrap, make a really big one! use rockwool, 4" thick, 2' wide and do what you have suggested, works well, and will give much better bass absorption than any foam can, whatever the brand

Thanks Matt :thumbup:
Don't know if I'll use the Auralex LENRD or other bass traps yet. I'll see how it sounds when I move in and if there is any cash left for this project :?~:-?~:???:
BTW I don't move until week 22 so still plenty of time for planning :nod:

I just wondered what your final solution was, magking, as I live in Norway too, and I need a lot of acoustic cloth too.
I have treated ceiling, front wall and side wall first-reflection points with acoustic "eggbox" foam that I got in Norway, but it's a bit unsightly. I want to cover at least the ceiling part with black cloth extending from mid-room, over the reflection-foam to the cinema screen. I thought to use the typical Norwegian curtain rails at each end and stretch it between. It is important that the fabric is acoustically transparent so that the foam still works. Short of importing a big roll of black speaker-grille fabric, I wondered if you had found a local solution. I'm also thinking of covering the side-walls and the front wall in this way, also some home-made corner-traps. I'd appreciate hearing what you've done.

The project have been put on ice for now because of finances :(
Any fabric would do as long as you can blow through it with ease.
BTW. I just came from Halden now, I have an uncle there. :nod:

Thanks for the reply. For the time being I've covered up my problems with the room correction given by a Velodyne processor in a DD-15 but I might follow your idea for a LENRD in the near future. I need to pluck that Everett book from the shelf and do some calculations :)~:-)~:smile:
