Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I plan to experiment with how much metal I want to place on the underside of the grill to change the force needed to hold the grill on.

My duo will be on carpet so I can make up a few solutions to keep it from moving without disturbing the paint.

At least this is my 'plan'...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

Thinking ahead, I need to get my color choice determined. I'm looking at the following options:

Blue Scuro (Lamborghini)

House of Kolor Purple

Ferrari Orange

This is going in a great room (that's the room type name, not that it's an awesome room! haha). Reference post #1 for the floor/wall/curtain combination in that image's background. My floor choices for future homes will either have very light or dark wood flooring.

What do you all think? Any others I should consider?

Nice build so far.

For colors of the enclosures I say Ferrari Orange to compliment the dark red print on the curtains and tan floor. And that color would look really good with the black HST-12's.

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

Making progress with the finish. I put my first layer of filler on last night.





This morning, I spent 30min sanding them both down and will follow it up with a second skin coat to level everything out. I'm getting things as flat as possible so my primer surfacer doesn't need to work so hard. I'm using 80 grit 6" 3M discs at this point.

Areas to address are marked and will apply the second layer...



So far, this is what I've been using for prep:

Second coat applied. Now I wait and sand later. After this, I can apply my polyester primer surfacer.

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I found a few more small flaws that I could take care of with filler, so another small batch was made and applied.

Thinking ahead, I'll need to build two posts that will hold the enclosures in the air so I can shoot them both on all sides [at the same time]. Some leftover lumber I have should be fine for this.

Thinking further ahead for paint, I've learned that single stage is my most favorable option. And I'm liking the low gloss flat paint options too.

Nick (Electrodynamic): If I orient my enclosures so that the driver is facing up, will this introduce any negative long term effects to the suspension?
