I am finally doing something about the bare MDF on my Abbeys. Nothing fancy as I am not a particularly good wood worker. I'm going to wrap them in glorious vinyl that looks sort of like oak and paint the front panel and compound corners with black satin. I have filled and sanded the holes and they seem pretty smooth. I've put a couple of coats of primer on the front and when sanded to 400 grit they feel smooth, I think one more coat and sanding and I'll try and hit them with some paint. They likely won't win any awards but they should look a lot better than they have for the last 8 months. I'm trying to get this done before winter and since I spent most of the summer unable to walk from foot surgery I'm trying to cram some projects in the next few weeks, at least anything that requires warmth and fresh air.
Yeah it is a AE (Lambda) TD15X. I have passive radiators ordered but still haven't heard word that they are shipping. I'll probably try the boxes sealed and then with PRs. They should move some air alright.
Finally put a finish on my Abbeys, not going to win any awards but it's much better than raw MDF. I painted the front satin black and clear coated that. The rest of the cabinet is wrapped in state of the art vinyl from Parts Express. They look better than I expected and pretty good when the lights are off. While I had them apart I lined the inside of the cabinet with No-Rez from GR Research and also changed out one crosssover cap as Earl had revised the crossover slightly from when I first built them. I have to say the results are more than I expected. The addition of the No-Rez seems to have freed the music from the speakers a bit, likely the cabinets are quieter. I'll try and snap a photo or two tomorrow, too tired tonight to do anything but listen to music and check out AC. mike
Hi MikeI was looking at getting Dr Earl's speaker kit ,but the Oz dollars went south really quick and put a stop to it ,maybe next year a Summa kit would be cool .He's a pick of the striplam's stack with the baffle CheersMal
