Bass enclosure finish? (Oris Horns)

by Gasper, Sunday, December 30, 2007, 14:46 (3671 days ago)

Dear Bert!

Please can you tell if there is any special way for painting the Compact Reference bass enclosure made from particle board. I would go with two layers of primer and two layers of paint. Which paint (acrylic, water based,...) is the best?

Thanky you for the answer.
:bey:

Best Regards,

Gasper.

Hallo GC!
There is some special laquer for wooden floors - which can be used as a primer, cause it seals the surface quite well. After sanding, just put the colour You like on that surface, but don´t use acrylic based colours. In case You want a real shiny surface, take several layers of clear gloss laquer. It´s a lot of work, cause You will see any small imperfections in the surface.
Myself, I´m not so happy with water based (acrylic) colours, but they improved during the last years.
Also I don´t like, by purely acoustical reasons, flat surfaces, cause they can reflect sound. With my Oris Reference Cabinets, I took alloy-foam for the outside finish. But I can understand, if the optics are not to everybodys taste!
Best regards
Stephan

Gasper,

Reference bass enclosure made from particle board. I would go with two
layers of primer and two layers of paint. Which paint (acrylic, water
based,...) is the best?

I usually add veneer to the enclosures, much better looking than any paint job if you ask me... :wink:

At the same time this means that I do not have a real good idea how to paint them, this is usually done at the paint shop...

Sorry,

Bert

Thank you Bert!

But I decided to paint them black - it suits to rest of the system. :cool:

My recipe:

First I used fiberglass filler and sanded down:

Then I had an auto paintshop spray them with spray filler:

Sanded down again

Sent them back to the paintshop for the black color
