    Go to a carpet store, ask for a book of samples, leave store with book of samples.
    You now have tons of 1x1 feet of carpeting.

    If you use the proper carpet designed for speakers, as it's really easy to work with. You can cut it with sissors and bends round corners really easilly. Also you can just stick it down with aerosol glue (made for this purpose). Be warned with the glue use a well ventalated space, after a carpeted the back of the mini, I was on the way out. I got a load of carpet and glue, from a highstreeet car shop, but that's in the UK.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    I bought carpet from PepBoys. Advance Auto Parts also has carpet that is the same color/texture as floor carpet. I'm sure that if you go into a car accessory store you'll be able to find what you need.
