Fltguy,
The top lip where the cover goes was edge banded with White Oak veneer. Prior to the placement of the veneer the whole case was sealed with sanding sealer as recommended by others. The bottom of the top baffle (if that's the right term) will be lined with Norez and the sides will be lined with felt as recommended by Danny.
The bottom is still off and will not be veneered since it has the same footprint as the top of the speaker stand. I'm toying with the idea of just screwing the bottom in since the fit is so tight and the Norez will seal the perimeter. Also, the speaker case will be bolted to the speaker stand. That way I have another way of access the crossover if needed. I don't think that will be a problem, but others would know.

They are looking good  man  :thumb:

You could probably get away with screwing in the base, especially being it sits  in a rabbet that  goes around the entire perimeter so it will be pressed up against  a surface.   
The original X-Stadik's  had  a removable   bottom plate  as well and they  were a  sealed  speaker for the   2  M165's,  it was done in a  very similar  way

John,
Since the bottom and sides will be lined with Norez and felt there is no need to veneer the inside. I believe this is what you were asking about.

And the transition from the veneer (1/64" thick plus three coats of top coat) to the future painted surface. A straight edge was clamped between the front baffle joint and the side for a clean straight line when installing the veneer.

The face of the monitors painted with satin black lacquer.



Tweeter installed. What worked for me was taping the predrilled holes and slightly countersinking the holes. Because the provided screws are such a  tight fit in the tweeter slot they tend to thread in random directions. The counter sunk holes helped walk the screws into the predrilled holes. A right angle screw driver is a must.

I like the lacquered satin finish. I am going to copy your idea! :thumb:

Crossovers installed. I need to finish the top cover and waiting on the woofers.







Servo Sub veneered with quarter sawn white oak. Finishing time again.

Those speakers look great on those stands. Waiting on the woofers must be torture! Trust me, once you hear them, it will be worth the wait.
