Alternative to Parts Express foam?
01/23/08 at 10:23:47
 
Hi Guys,

Do you think this foam I've found on ebay would be ok to substitute for the Parts Express egg-crate foam:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=120210625908&ssPageNam...

The Parts Express foam is nice and cheap...only $20 for 4 sheets. But it's $116 to ship to the UK!

So, I need to find an alternative. Does it need to be a special kind of foam (i.e. material / density) or is it just the egg-crate shape which is required?

Thanks,

John

PS Actually I just found this shop too..this stuff looks ok: http://www.foamworld.eu/php/produkte_04.php?lang=en

John,

  As much as I hate to say "Yeah that will work" with out having it in my hands, the E-bay item looks like the best for your HDT's. It should work just fine.

Thanks, Bob!

They confirmed that it is acoustic foam suitable for speakers so fingers crossed it will  be the right stuff.
