Default Where can I...

Where can I get some subwoofer box carpeting. I still haven't got any on my box yet. I haven't had the time and don't have any carpeting. Matter of fact, I'm not quite sure what to finish it with yet. I could put some bondo on it, sand it out, and paint it. I could put some leather like vinyl on it, or I could carpet it. I also don't know how to carpet a box. I would appreciate if somebody could show me how you did yours.

depending on the tpye of carpet some 3M spray adhesive used properly would hold it very well. You other choice would be silicone or staples/nails.

Get a stapler used for stapling insulation [you throw it against the material you want stapled, but it never leaves your hand], and use in conjuntion with the spray adhesive. This way the staples hold it on while it sets up.

I personally like the look of matching the colour and pile [how deep, shallow, or thick a carpet is] of the space you are mounting the box in.

So, I will go to Jo Ann Fabric, what should I ask to look at? The name of the stuff. I haven't been there since I was a little one and my mom would make me go with her(she makes high-end pillows).
