Just humoring. But we can't beat the communal mind, members can comment very wisely. But you decide.

I'm fond of dark reds, black, silver and white myself Darker colors usually seem to blend into the room better when I put a movie on.

Ouch this will make my head spinn lol, but I will read and consider all suggestions. After the baffle is glued in place with braces and the polyester filling glued into place (I am not sure I need to change anything but probably it can be better) I will putty it and sand it smooth. Then a primer layer and then color + maybe some laquer on top. I will also round the braces, maybe it has a little positiv effect. When ready I will post some pictures of the inside to get it right. For example, should the insides be covered with filling all the way to the front, or do you leave a little space to be sure it is not too close to the actual membrane of the woofer?

Yeah Dufus, that is quite some asking price! Have not listened to it and maybe it is worth the money, who knows.
Salas: so it has some influence after all, good to know it seems ok to you as it is. It actually has a little thinker layer in the middle section than you specified I think.
First there is a layer going from bottom all the way up to top. Then in the middle a layer from side to side overlapping the bottom-to-top layer. And a little more than 6 cm as specified in the bottom but at the top above the bracing it is full. Se picture for detail:

Matters a lot especially in a reflex. Should work without hindrance. Else you lose much output.

As for high-end speakers etc. there is no VFM at all in that sector. Its either you appreciate an object of desire and you got no time and much money, or you just stare IMHO. Only 3rd way to nirvana (3rd way is a Scandinavian TM mindset after all) is DIY.

Is that stuffing attached? I'd probably hit it with a stapler and fasten it down so it doesn't move around over time.

It is loose but will be fastened with spray glue when I finally glue the baffle.
