Default new sub, built to fit

Just about completed the sub to go with the Jays http://members.optusnet.com.au/~gradds55/ARGOS/Jay's.html

the bottom part is the sub, the top part is a cupboard.
The whole sits on a 2.5ft tall concrete shelf.

Sub driver is Peerless 850845, with 200w SSS amp from WES.
box is 50 litres sealed

But, but Andy, it's... it's kinda square.

Nice job as usual.

Andy,

Those look great.

Regarding the covering, is that some rare wood veneer of some sort of lizard skin?

Thanks guys. The fire did get a tad warm !!

but seriously, this finish is pretty easy to do, its a proprietory spray can.
http://www.plastikote.com/plastikote...oduct=Cracklin

procedure:
undercoat first.

try to work with the surface horizontal

use a spray can for the undercolour (some cheaper cans don't work, but any of the Automotive type can sprays will. something to do with the solvents used I guess.)

then use the spray in the link, thick and even will give a good wide crackle effect. this is the tricky part, getting it thick and even

then spray coat 2 or 3 of spray clears

never use brush on enamel undercolour or clears, only sprays !!!
