I'd rather not, since the screws are just going into the raw MDF and I don't want to keep pulling them in and our. I was thinking of just masking the magnet and painting the front-facing silver metal so that it doesn't show through the grill as much. It's not a showstopper, just something I was thinking about.

In addition to taping, you can stuff some newspaper in the opening. That will keep any over-spray off the NoRez as well.

Thats exactly what I did, masked around the magnet then used newspaper to cover all the rest.

I used Tremclad rattle can, gave it 3 light coats.....after I stripped the sticker.

Its darker than shown here....looked very good when it was completed.

Tremclad is  great stuff, it will stick to anything and you can actually get a pretty decent finish with it

These Super Vs really are amazing. For sure the best speakers I've had in my room and I'd say performs as well as speakers I've auditioned that cost many times more than these. And this is with the woofers still not broken in. Pretty amazing what Danny has been able to do here. I'm quite impressed. These sound every bit as good as the LX521 (which I had considered as an alternative to the Super Vs) and have the distinct positive of being able to use any low-powered amp you'd like for the mains and no DSP, which is a + in my book.

I'm seriously in awe here of just how good these sound.

Instead of painting, you can just attach some black felt with double-sided tape, cutting a little hole in the middle for the vent. With the grille in place the felt will be invisible.

I am in total agreement. I have owned speakers up to around the 15K mark including Wilsons, Piegas, Green Mountain Audio, Von Schweikert....the list goes on and on. None have been any better and many fall far short of the mark. These are very impressive.

Worked on building my new speaker cables last night. Some Teflon Mil-Spec Wire, Silver Plated PTFE 5 conductor 16 AWG per conductor. Twisted together they should be able 9 AWG. Everything is wrapped in tech flex and terminated with BFA connectors.
