    Two questions

    The studio grey, texture paint is a technique, of applying a finish vs, an actual textured paint?

    2. How com you did not use a mouse or hand sander to remove the older few coats of finish.

    Yeah it's a technique. I experimented with a paint gun to get the effect, jamming a screw in the spray jet path to disperse it into the right kind of splatter. I had the original finish left on the back as a guide. I just used normal household oil based paint that I got colour matched. I would recommend a clear coat of some sort to protect it.

    Mine had several layers of paint applied with a brush messily (by the previous owner). I wantwd to get back to bare particle board so I could prime the surface properly. The paint stripping was a big job to get it all off. Prob best to paint strip once and scrape of majority and sand the rest. You might be fine to just sand yours, could be easier.

In my own experience, I think the new crossovers bring the monitors to a level of performance that they truly deserve. If you want to try it on the cheap, pick up a pair of L110, L-50, or 4313b crossovers on eBay (less than $75.00) and give it a listen. Either way, enjoy those monitors, they look super! Paul
    Paul, I know this thread is over a year old, but I just wanted to say your Wave license plate grabbed my attention as I have the same style plate (I'm in Garden City). Howdy neighbor!
