Does anyone have suggestions were to get subwoofer enclosure carpeting that would match the carpeting in the car? I'm sure it's fairly standard black or dark grey carpeting.

My car is a Porsche 911 997 if that makes any difference.

    I picked up some from a local car audio install shop. It's nearly a perfect match for the light grey carpet in my '95 Trans Am.

    Believe it or not, Wal-mart used to sell some small rolls of auto carpet, they kept it by the steering wheel covers.

    Lightweights. The full duplex Vadic 1200 bps is tops, and was invented by them. Four times as fast as the previous 300 bps modems at the time. Testing/fixing Vadic modems was my first job in CA when I moved here in 76. Computer networking has been a good career for me. :)

    This dude that I know owned a used car dealership. He told me he would pull the carpet out of cars, shampoo it, dry it and then spray it with spray paint. Wonder if black spray paint would do ? (Tee Hee)
