Speaker box carpet serves at least 3 Useful functions


1.  Protects the cabinet woodth

2.  It aids in appearance (sometimes)

3.  It offers a ‘pro’ look (or car audio look, whichever you are after)


Speaker box carpet is just-plain-functional, if you are building your own set of speaker cabs or repairing existing monitors.

This stuff can cover up a multitude of scrapes and dents that paint just cannot match. True, it may be a little bit utilitarian and crude but sometimes that is a good thing. For car audio and pro audio, being rugged is always a good thing.

Pro speakers certainly take a beating and need the toughness of this type of finish. Most floor monitors and car audio subwoofers are covered with carpet.

Here though, the use is for different needs.

2. Matches the carpet in your own car or vehicle

3. Good for stage monitors and speakers

4. Good for a matt finish in some home theater rooms
