I will use only one big tile per side Salas so I do not think it will look like a bathroom lol.
Using whole wood like Sonus Faber would work but too much work for me. I think I will start with a test panel and see if I like it.

I would take the speakers and wiring out of the box and of to the carpenter.

I don't think that i would be able to do it nicely by myself also.

Zvuchniak, I also need something on the back of the speakers so it would involve wood there too. I will report my findings after testing the ceramic tile on MDF.

It would be quite cool with speakers covered in ceramic tiles, but I have never seen it before. Perhaps something to try one day .

Test panel glued, a bit harder than expected to get an even layer of glue, have to work fast. Need to dry at least 24 hours .
Glue is based on synthetic rubber.

It might work, seems more stable. But I listened some last night and all of the back panel is making noise more or less so I should cover it up entirely. The side panels are good so it needs nothing. It also did not look good with tiles on the sides so I skip that.

If it will do work for the back panel quieting it will be something, and outta sight non the less.

Yes Salas, that is my plan. But after trying out the ceramic tiles (clay really) it is obvious it is not good enough. So now I will do it the Swedish way , go "all in" and go for Swedish granite. That is really heavy stuff! My plan is to get hold of floor tiles of granite and get it cut to fit. They can be found in 30x30cm so it needs some cutting. 2 of these at the back going from top down to terminals and then leave the little part below without stone to save some cost. What do you think of it, Salas?

P.S. See the balance on stands not to go back tipping with some light touch.
