    I love the look of a big glossy black sub just as much as anyone but...

    The WAF is very high in my household so it is taking some doing to get a 22"x22"x25" sub approved.

    I think it would help out if I had pictures to show her of subs that were camouflaged in a room as much as possible. (In-wall or in-ceiling mounting is out of the question.) Our room is an off white color and she's into the "shabby sheik" look. So I figured a sandstone or off white finish might help me sell her on the idea.



    thanks,

    It also has my current progress of another speaker I'm working on but you can see what you want on the bottom.

    I was looking into making my sub look more like an end table: downfiring with legs, a false drawer or two on the front, and a table type top on it. You could then paint it or treat it to match any other type of furniture.

    Dave,

    I'll be doing something very similar when the new Adire 15 is available!

    When I primed my 3cft NHT1259 box (bright white) it looked so badass I had to take a picture of it.
    Unfortunatly not with a digital camera. May be able to get my hands on a digicam sometime this weekend, if I do ill take a photo of a photo for you [​IMG]
    People say white makes something look big, but I didnt really notice any difference...
