Acousticaly transparent black velvet //

In what way is regular black velvet (like the ones you can buy on Amazon) acoustically transparent? Or would I need specific fabric for that?

Thanks for the input

That doesn't exist....but you could do nicely using a Matte Black Spandex

Do you mean spandex would me more transparent? Looks like it could do the same so I'm good for both . Just want to look for a fabric that wont distort my sound too much.

Spandex is actually as good as the most effective (...and costly...)Mfg AT Cloth available, and really better than almost all others.



It is being used extensively as Acoustic Transparent Screen material, (2 Layers are as effective as 1 layer of Mfg AT cloth...) so you'll have no issues at all.


Is your intended use to cover/shield R & L Speaker arrays?

Exactly Trying some things out in preparation of my projector + large AT screen.

I'm interested in the use as a AT screen though! Seems like a pretty good way to make something I can easily attach and detach when necessary. Maybe build a wooden frame with a lot of anchorpoints and springs attached to the spandex? Not sure what you mean by "Mfg" though.

Not sure what you have and do not have in the US, but here in germany we have Stretch Velvet which is nearly acousticly transparent. It is even blacker than TBV which i have samples of.

Here is a measurement of it compared to Devore: (Source: Heimkinoverein.de)


Blue is Devore, Purple is the Stretch Velvet.

This stuff is wideley availible as it is a China import. Made of: 92% plastic stuff (poly.. whatever) 8% elastic stuff (Elastan)

Regards,
Herb

It made a huge difference in picture quality and was under 100 bucks for 30 yards delivered and is way better than any black paint and does better than most black material due to the velvet pile/opposed to fabric with no pile height.

If that is what i think it is it is not suitable. I do know "Pannesamt" (crushed velvet) and it reflects alot of light and looks really really cheap... Like something a prostitute would wear.

Herb

Possibly Whaley's Devore as linked by Arrow AV here:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-di...l#post58185028

This one is stated to be AT and darker than Fidelio (but directional, where Fidelio is not)
