Jl audio 13W3V3-4 40 liter closed box: The best of one world

This topic is the other half of the Best of both world,s.
Because i opened a build of the bandpass,http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...one-world.html
But i took no picture,s of this closed build.

I took one when it was ready,this is one of the 3.
1 stand,s in the HT next to the bandpass.

The other 2 are playing in the living,both in a 40 liter closed box.
But i miss a vented sub in the living,so another new build will come soon

Cant tell from the pics if it is smooth or not. To get a great finish I have used car audio paints before with clear finish. I also like using 2pac paint for piano finishes.

Either way looks nice.

If you can get your hands on it there is a product out there called feather fill made by evercoat. It is a polyester based primer that has VERY high build and filling qualities. You would need a large tip primer gun to spray it through but would be great for letting mdf suck it up. Out 3-4 coats on the box. Block sand the whole thing out and it would be smooth and straight.

Thanks for the tip,i am gonna look or i can buy it over here.
Mdf suck,s up the regular primer,even if it is special for mdf.
So i am looking for the way,carpaint and primer i read about and seen it,very good .
But i have no spray set for paint,so i have to shop first.

This finish is done after about 5 coats of automotive primer then block sanded. The black is gloss spray paint from a can. Live by these words. " it's all about the prep job "

Thanks. That's sub a pile of parts that are stuffed in the corners of my garage. Nothing to call home about. Finishing cabs is the easy part for me. The scientific part is where I have much to learn.
