I need the fiberglass for the interior of a set of Altec 9846 speakers circa 1975.
I am located in Atlanta.
Any suggestions of where may carry a similar product nowadays?

check with the big box home improvement stores...
just as an FYI, some folks seem to use hairspray or paint to secure the fibres
so that they don't become a bother later (inhalation, itchy-ness, etc)

also consider using an alternative material:
some folks seem to like the recycled denim, others soundproofing foam,
still others brushed lambs wool ssems good...

I am personally unsure of the different effects that different absorbtion materials present.

I have also used polyfill from craft stores - it doesn't shed like fiberglass and it doesn't make you itch ;)
