Hi permo,

The finish depends so much on where and what.... I've used just about everything from latex and acrylic paint to 1/4" plywood (ash looks-and finishes-nice) with edge trim to burlap. You can always round the corners, and paint it black.

Maybe a grill for the opening:

and, some vinyl speaker covering:

Vinyl Speaker Cabinet Covering Black Bronco Yard 54" Wide 260-760

Regards,

i am just updating the folks who helped me so much with this. I have ordered a grill, 1 50 foot rool of the speaker sealing foam (1/8th X 3/8th) and also the primer, paint and poly sealent to finish the project. I should be done in a month...but I will post pics at every step.

The next step is going to be to pre drill, sand and do a dry run of the removable front and rear panels before we shoot it with primer. We are going to prime, wet sand, prime, wet sand, until we are satisfied...then shoot the hammer finish black and finish it with satin varithane poly. It's nice to have a painting/staining room at your disposal!

The enclosure was fitted with the removable lids yesterday. Also yesterday we applied the woodfiller, chamfered all of the edges to soften them and sanded the entire enclosure so it will take the primer better.

Tomorow we will move it to the paint room for the first coating of primer.

I did just procure an 11 function audio system test generator, but I have no O-scope, so I am working on that piece of the puzzle.

I will be doing the final sanding of the enclosure and panels next week and also shooting the primer. I should have a finished product in around a Month.

The Function Generator that I have is a BK Precision 3010.

Hi permo,

Take a look at the Linkwitz Lab site:

System Test

Linkwitz sells some test CDs, and has some good information on building an inexpensive but good recording microphone. You should also have a simple hand-held SPL meter, they are just handy. Lots of information on that subject on the web.

Regards,
