Hello all;

I recently picked up a 1966 Sylvania SC189P stereo console with a Spanish Provincial cabinet. This cabinet has four panels across the front, each with a black wrought iron grille with a velour type of drape or curtain behind. I don't care for the color of the drapes that it currently has. I see many sources of grille cloth, but have not seen these velour type drapes. I was just going to look at JoAnne Fabrics or something, but it was mentioned to me that the fabric needs to be acoustically transparent. Ideas?

That's where l found cloth for several of my radios. Remember to consider both sides of the cloth. Just look through it, you don't want to see the support structure once installed. Craig

I stopped by JoAnne Fabrics, but couldn't decide on a cloth. The current drapes seem to be so thick as to possibly alter the sound, but I'm not sure. I found a place online that sells acoustically transparent speaker cloth, but it looks very thin. Am I just being too worried about the sound? I wish I knew if the current drapes that I have were OEM. I might have to wait until I get my chassis back from being repaired to see if the gold drapes impact the sound and then make a choice.

EDIT: I decided that I was being too anal about this. I went back to JoAnne's and bought a yard of a nice silky wine colored fabric that will look much better than the gold. It is a thinner material as well.
