This probably isn't the right place for this, but...

Doses acoustically transparent material as is used for speaker grills also let IR remote signals thru? I was thinking of using it to hide my electronics.

Thanks

Hmm, interesting question. It should work... but i suggest trying it with a small piece of the exact grill cloth material you want to use before you make any major investments.

It generally depends on the strength of the IR signal..
Most remotes will work ok that way, but occasionally you'll find the odd one that won't..

If it doesn't work, and it's really important, you could switch to an RF remote.

Yes it works. No problem whatsoever.
Went to Walmart and bought 60" x 10 yards of some cheap black thin cloth for testing. I can only assume that actual grill cloth is even thinner so it will also work. I may have cut my highs slightly since it is covering the center channel also. I am going to rerun Audyssey, but I could hardly tell the difference from before and after.

Thanks for your help
