I'm terrible at this part. Finishing cabinets, and repairing radios is easy, but picking speaker cloth is an issue for me. I would greatly appreciate it if some of you kind folks here could make some suggestions. I need a piece that's 16x24.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

This is about as close to the original as youll get... The original had more brown in it than gold but this would look really nice... Its close to a whiskey rayon but would look really nice...

Heres your original:

I had a Silvertone 4587A that luckily had good cloth in it...

In some pics this looks more brown:

Get a sample first, Brett actually sells a book of samples, some cloth is too thick.

Thanks for the suggestion from South Dakota. I've ordered a piece and will see how I like the look.

Best regards,

Look at Richmond Designs Soldier brown if you don't like the piece you ordered.
