Where can I buy carpet for my sub enclosure? I can find the standard black that most sub boxes are covered with, but I've seen some on here find a grey that more closely matches their boats carpet. Any ideas where I can look?

When I did carpet I was able to find a few different grays at local car audio shops. I switched to vinyl, and was able to get marine grade gray at JoAnne Fabrics.

That's a good idea. Grey vinyl will look great.

Factory carpet can be drop-shipped to you from any SC dealer. Just give them the HIN# of your boat for colormatch and how much you want and your off and running.

I picked up some grey auto carpet at Fleet Farm. It was around $8 for a small roll. Its not a perfect match to the interior but close enough for me.

I got some off eBay - Seller was called "BOATCARPETSALES"

Color was an extremely close match for mine and since it is on an enclosure tucked up under by your feet, a slight variance isn't noticeable much unless I pointed it out. 6ft wide, and it was $2.50 a foot. $14 for shipping so I got a nice big chunk shipped for $24. It is thinner than factory carpeting but that actually made it easier to cut and form around the sub enclosure.

Nice thing is I've got a bunch left after building my box!

Bought a 3'x3' piece from my SC dealer today (Active Watersports) and they charged me $18. It's the exact same carpet as what's in my boat.
