I dont know how partsexpress does it but an 80" by 36" piece of black unbacked carpet for $15 seems like a good price to me.

if you have a jo ann fabrics near you they may have some felt that will work ok. it looks like speaker box carpet just not as durable. also you can buy factory direct from r/t. great carpet for the price. just 7.95 for 72" x 36" and shipping is not that bad either

if it was 15 bucks shipped i'd agree but parts express has unbacked carpet for 5.25 a running yard (36"x54") so for 15.75 you'd get 36"x162" before shipping. the place you linked the cheapest i found was 15.95 for that 80"x36" before shipping

3 yards at parts express is 54"x108"for $15.75...............whats good about parts express is the carpet is 54" wide, much better than a measly 36"

whenever you put carpet on your box do you HAVE TO take the subs out or can you do it without? I really dont feel like going through the trouble and donig that but I will if I have to.
EDIT: im sure you dont have to take the speakers out but will look better...

Seriously? If you don't want to go to the trouble of taking out your subs then you might as well forget about carpeting your box. Its way more "trouble" than grabbing your screw gun and removing a few screws.

those prices are awesome if you need over 100 feet of it. Most of us don't need that much but if i ever had the extra cash i would probably snag one of those up. probably last me ten years

Meh, its on 48" wide. I do a lot of quite a few boxes around that width, so its nice to have the 56" wide stuff from PE. Plus its not much different in price for me.

Would be curious about the quality of the carpet though.

I have been using that carpet for years. Works Perfect.

I haven't had a box over 44" in width so I guess I can't say. If anything I just do the mend corner technique and then all you really need is an inch over hang to make the carpet go all the way around

Oh and 1 roll will last you a LOT of boxes.
