What are speaker cloths for? im planning on making my own cab and i just want to know what speaker cloths are for
#2
Mostly so things dont stab or rupture the speaker cones. They also affect the sound a tiny bit.

what kind of tones are you after? it could be my imagination, but i always associate grilles with tight, modern metal-type tones, and cloth with softer, more vintage tones. bear in mind any difference is going to be extremely subtle, but it might be noticeable, especially if you have bat ears.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Speaker cloth is supposedly "acoustically transparent". I don't know if that is BS, but when u shop for cloth specifically for speakers, u'll see that term in the feature set.

I think is more because with aggressive genres, you need a solid grill because you are more apt to impale the speakers with the headstock of your guitar than anything else.

yeah, it's possible. and cloth "looks" more vintage, so tends to be put on more vintage-sounding cabs. I dunno, it strikes me that having a cloth over the speakers is bound to affect the sound slightly, but it might be so subtle as to be effectively non-existent.

At a very low volume, you may hear a difference, but crank that ****er and I doubt it.

Wouldn't it be awesome if someone actually tore their speaker cloth with t3h v0lum33z?!?
