Felt and Wire Cloth
I've attached two pictures, one is felt made by the Duck insulation and tape company used for pipe insulation (in place of the standard fiberglass pipe wrap), and the other picture is one of 1/2" plastic wire cloth.
The felt is 3" wide by 50 ft., with a depth of either 1/11" or 3/8". The web site says 3/8" (which looks accurate), while the packaging says 1/11" (which I think is a typo). Do you think this material would work well to surround a tweeter? On many of the smaller tweeters you'd be able to cut out a hole in the center and place this around the periphery.
Can one of the more knowledgable members elaborate on the possible benefits and/or detriments of this?
Concerning the wire cloth, I purchased this to facilitate placing batting material (stuffing) in the top 19" of a 39" tall ML-TL as recommended by Paul K. I plan to stretch it across the interior and gluing/stapling it in place. Another thought I had, and just wanted to get a "thumbs-up" on, was to cover the interior end of the port/tube with this material and use a zip-tie to hold it in place (and probably glue that in place...basically the zip-tie would hold the wire cloth in place while glue dries and ultimately holds the wire cloth and the zip-tie in place). Does anyone see any potential problems with this?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
