This is what I purchased for my refurbished Cornwall's. Expensive, but looks great!

The only problem I had was getting all the wrinkles out before I mounted it on the boards.

How did you get the wrinkles out?

Also, how did you mount?...hot glue?

Thx!

The piece I bought was 36x55. The seller folded it up to fit into a large shipping envelope. I could not believe how terrible it looked.

After several failed attempts to get the wrinkles out, I gave up and took it to the laundry that does my shirts. I had cut the material into two pieces a little larger than finished size.  They flattened my fabric while I watched. Only took a few minutes.

 

I have used Hot Glue for lots of stuff, but am not always happy with the end product. 

 

I used contact cement for this project. It is easy to apply and clamp one side at a time. I ended up with a flat surface instead of the lumps I always get with hot glue. 

 

Good luck.

Is it acoustically transparent?  My audio dealer said that "acoustically transparent" is like "clean coal."  Nevertheless, I got some (not Lamb's wool) at an online dealer (I forget which; Google it).  It reduces the top octave by about 2 dB, as I recall.   Audyssey fixed that handily.

I too ordered this exact same cloth and talked to them prior to purchasing, In 123stitch's defense, they said that this particular cloth comes shipped to them already folded and that a careful ironing or steaming should take the wrinkles out.  Cannot hear any sonic difference between this 18 count lambswool and the factory speaker grill cloth.  There is a slight difference between grill on and off obviously.

Duracrest Fabrics in Elk Grove Village Illinois has made the Klipsch cloth since the early 80"s.  I have been toying with having my forte II done in lambswool as well.

Your welcome.  They will apply for you or you can do yourself.  Since they are local for me thinking of dropping off grills late next week.  Quoted me about $100.00 That is fabric installed and badges put back on.  Exact fabric as forte III lambs wool since they are the supplier.

John

They Quoted you $100 with badges??  Wow.

I guess different sizes get different quotes..but..i mean the Chorus II is not THAT much bigger than the Forte II.  I was quoted $150 for lambswool and $125 for silver 70th anniversary - and he noted i can get pie badges at $20 each-not a pair.  I'd be looking at well over $200 after shipping my grill frames there and back.

The around $100/-- quote included re-using my original badges which are mint.

Unfortunately I've never ever seen 100% "acoustically transparent" as sold.  If you are lucky you can voice the speaker with the grill on to offset the effects some.

My solution to the grill on/off issue
