Where To Get Fidelio Velvet From ?

Yes pretty sure that's the one.

Sorry for digging up an old thread. Is that actually Fidelio or just the closest available in Oz? I want to line my walls and ceiling in the front stage area of my HT.

No it's called 'Eagle double velvet' not Fidelio.

Depending how close the side walls are to the screen you might be able to get away with something that might give you some acoustic benefit like a wall carpet?

I've already got strips of fidelio above and below my OZTS 130 scope screen that I bought off Prior( the fidelio not the screen). Would be nice to match it, in other areas of the stage I have polymax absorb in black which is nowhere as absorbing as fidelio but doesn't cause reflections either.

Is this it? Damn this stuff is black! With all the lights in spotlight i could see any ripples in the material so imagine in a light controlled Theater it will be excellent.

I'd be grabbing as much as you can afford of that stuff! I might even get some myself as I don't have full rolls here, it's too expensive, would be more than 45 a metre.

That stuff is one of the closest to fidelio black.

k3nnis, normally around the screen walls and ceiling. You can either pin it to the ceiling, but you get quilting, (3 pins across the width and spaced about 40cm apart across the length) or apply it to some manageable sized sheets of corflute and attach to ceiling and or walls. I tried it with 2.4 x 1.2 metre sheets of corflute once but it was so hot that day the glue was drying before I could apply to a full sheet, so half size is probably better.. or move somewhere with a milder climate!

When you use velvet like this, make sure you have it so the blackest side is facing your seating position as there is a sheen to velvet, you have to check each panel before attaching to the ceiling or wall.

I bought 15m of it at $410 delivered from memory. I put it thtough with paypal because i couldnt be bothered getting out of bed to get the credit card. The purchase request through the spotlight website said it didnt go through but this morning i got an email saying it had and paypal confirmed this. Only dropped 3k in the last few days on some home theater purchases. I guess my wife hasnt seen it yet because im still alive. But to me I need the AT screen from Rich OzTheatre and they are the best in Australia. But the velvet will be stretched over either thin wood frames or coreflute panels with Velcro all around the front wall where the screen is mounted on a false wall.

Here is a render of what I hope my room will look like, excuse the pillars. I dont think they will be there. Looking at some on wall krix perhaps. The plasterers are almost finished at the moment but I dont know if I can get them to do the Soffit/bulkhead. I just dont know how I should have it. Im trying to keep it nutural so if I ever remove the false wall it doesnt look strange being more longer to the wall then the side walls. I guess O shouldnt worry about that and just live in the moment.

That website was spotlight.com.au . Their website is down at the moment for maintenance. (1:24am). I saw it in the store a week or so ago with my wife and thought damn this stuff is good enough for me but was choking on the price but then seen it on special online and bought straightaway!

@Hatlesschimp @oztheatre Would you consider this fabric suitable for covering acoustic absorption panels? I have several sheets of polymax absorb under and to each side of my screen and just want to tidy it up. As I wish to use this fabric to line my ceiling, it seems an obvious choice for covering the panels too. The idea is to simply make simple timber frames the polymax will free stand inside, and then stretch fabric in front so the polymax can't topple out.

 

I guess the other option is a form of speaker grill type of material.

No I dont think it's open enough. I know fidelio isn't open enough but some have used it for acoustic panel covers but not sure of any measured results.

The eagle spotlight stuff is heavier from memory so I doubt it would work. You need to be able to blow thru it without any resistance or as little as possible to test for sound transparency.

Speaker grille cloth much better for sound panels. I certainly wouldn't compromise the effectiveness of the panels and what you cover them with over how black it can be. When the room is dark and no light is shining on the panels they won't be visible anyway. What you want is for them to work well over how how they might look when the lights are on.

This looks ok http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dark-Black-Speaker-Grille-Cloth-34cm-x-43cm-Professional-Grade-Quality/252605408938?_trksid=p2141725.c100338.m3726&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20150313114020%26meid%3Ddf4e30ef6dab4a188b6ebd2f66a1aa37%26pid%3D100338%26rk%3D9%26rkt%3D27%26sd%3D331572279511
