I've posted these before, but I'm going home in two weeks so I'm going to need to make a decision pretty soon. Here they are: http://www.epalla.com/speakers/16.jpg Big fellas aren't they. Before anyone pokes fun, I didn't just "cut holes" for the ports - the specs called for two 3/4" dia. ports, which is the width of the MDF. So many people have called me on that Anyway, I obviously need to finish them somehow, but I really can't think of what I want to do. They're going to be in a college house and I want to keep them, so obviously I care a lot more about durability and cost effectiveness than anything else. That said, there are a bunch of things I could do.. 1. Primer/High Gloss black paint/Poly coat - would look really shiny, could be really cool if I do it right. 2. Textured spraypaint - the idea would be to get it more like an industrial speaker - something like a roll on truck bedliner would work well for this too. It'd be durable as hell, kinda pricey to do bed liner though. 3. Carpet - pretty standard I guess.. 4. Veneer - expensive, I don't think it would look that great just because of the size and.. squareness of the speakers. I'm really not even considering veneer at the moment. There's probably other stuff too, I just can't think of it at the moment. Anyway, once I decide on a finish I still have to combine it with a grill and I'm kind of wondering if I want to do metal corner pieces. They might be moved around a bunch in their lifetime and it's just MDF on the corners which we all know dents pretty easily. Anyone have any input on this? Am I going to want metal corners for sure? As for grills - it's cheapest and easiest to just get a metal grill to cover the driver obviously. I could make a grill with a simple wood frame and grill cloth, it would be a different look though. I want something that will protect the drivers but still look good, and I really haven't found much yet. These things are simple: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=260-375 But I think we can all agree they're not the best looking grills. The ones with straight bars across look a little better, but definitely don't provide all that much protection for the driver. So yeah, I want to know: What should I do to finish them? Do I need metal feet on a MDF box if I plan to move them around a bunch? What should I do about a grill?
