Question Where to buy 80 PPI reticulated foam?

As Im in the starting stages of building WD25a (almost everything on the way or on order) I also need 12 mm thick 80 PPI reticulated foam. I have yet to find a good source for this, so Im hoping to find some advice here.

Any info would be highly appreciated.

Have you asked World Designs if they have a piece left over?

Failing that.

Doesn't say what density it is, but might be worth asking.

Also this stuff is sometimes sold for use as fishpond filters.
I'm sure you'll find it somewhere, but a small quantity might be difficult.

Grille foam is about 30 PPI, so that wont do any good. And from what I have found so far about pond filters, they vary between 10 and 45 PPI.

The ones Ive found so far have been either the wrong size (too small) or the wrong PPI.

Thanks for the tips, hope youve got some more for me

Hi , if this foam is for grille material then I'm not sure why you want a hi PPI
Herehttp://steplaw.com/reticulatedfoam.html

If Wilmslow audio use a particular PPI then it will be fairly transparent which is what you need.
A high PPI is an absorber, are the speakers that bad that they need to absorb the waves
