    I'm going to be building custom amplifier and woofer enclsures for my car, and need about 8 yards of black carpet for the entire project.

    thanks for the help

    If someone wants to sell directly to me, I have a paypal account that I can use to pay you with

    That's a good suggestion - if that's not what you're looking for, there are carpet remnant stores in almost any city, where they sell what are essentially the scraps from larger jobs at pretty low prices. Of course there's not a ton of black carpeting used on big jobs...

    Just a side note - a lot of box upholstering is not done with carpet, but with felt. You can get black or various shades of grey felt really cheap at any fabric store. It's a hell of a lot easier to work with than actual carpet too.
