Definitely contact us when you find those AL - III's!

Naked is fun, yes, but we think the speakers are best when fully clothed. They deserve the very best quality acoustic foam!

Welcome , I bought the same foam here Seattle for for 11.00 $ 3X6 sheet , used what I needed and gave the rest away ....How much do you charge ? OOOHHHH , I see 50 $......I can buy a sheet of the so called acoustic foam ( black , charcoal Grey ) 6 x 6 for 25.00....I am not trying to be an ass , but if your product was NOS from Bob , then I could see paying that much..Welcome to the forum Ron...!!

Hi Steve, Thats a pretty sweet deal on foam. It took me 2 years to locate this open cell acoustic foam from a major speaker supply company here in the US. I wasn`t ready to settle for just anything, after I spent 2 grand on my speakers back in 92. Sound transparency is very important to me, after all your system is only as good as its weakest link. It originally cost me much more, but I got a better price after I got a relationship with the rep, and bought quantitys. I`ve supplied many people, and have only received positive feedback on Ebay.

I got mine at a mom and pop shop that has been around for years....Trust me , its the same stuff you have , but the last place I will look ,, is at a major speaker supply company , then I would be guaranteed of spending 100 times more..Just saying , I seen your price awhile back , and that was my motivation , your price...I take ALOT of pride in my stereo , and will not settle for less.....BUT , I wont let some one take advantage of me to profit of my gear... :-" here a snipit of some of my stuff
