Painted yet, or waiting to hear how they sound, first?

Panels all done and ready to put this project to bed. Woofers are GRS 15 PF-8 mid is a 6 1/2" buyout from P.E. and tweeters are Goldwood GT-520 soft dome horns. The woofers will be powered by their own 300 w amps and the mids are powered by the L & R channels of the receiver.

Paint is from Parts Express! It's simple comes with it's own roller and works as advertised! Great finish!

I thought that paint might be what you used. Plan to try it myself as MDF is not the easiest to paint.

I used either oil or water based paint. The trick is the roller, that's the one that gives the texture. Play with thinning more or less the paint until you get the right texture.
