Well Im about to get a psi recone for my 12" rf hx2 gettin the f it cap. Wondering if I should change the basket color or leave it black the motor and motor cover are black. I will be powder coating it if I do so. So any ideas about color or leave it alone?

I'd keep it black, but thats my opinion. A blue or red could look cool.

invert the sub so it glows at night? or have a plexi window with some uv lights shining on it?

Wow lack of thought huh. Yes they do make it but hella expensive and never messed with it.

you could just paint the basket with glow in the dark, not where the surround or spider landing goes. it's like $20 per quart of glow in the dark paint at Home Depot but it comes in green.

i say do the glow in the dark as a splash on the basket and the motor and paint the basket in orange.

Dunno if i will invert or not. I just figured I'd do it cuz I have the equip and exp to do so. And just why not lolz. I am leaning to white though prolly high gloss. Not really a waste of money as i get powder cheap

Well went and bought some powder today. Bought high gloss white, high gloss fire red, and high gloss slime lime green. Now just gotta figure out which color to do. Also I have decided to make the sub into a 18". Should be a monster. Pics to come when I decide the color. Now leaning heavy to green or red. As the white is very hard to get to cover.

I'd respray the basket glossy black.

Magnet cover thing all white.

Tape off the white.

Do a splash effect with the red and green on the basket.

:crap:

black is not a option. Red green or white only. I am powder coating not painting.

I'm reconing my 12"s to 15"s & i'll be doing them white and inverting them in the truck. I like the nice clean look of white.

One side of the basket post, green
Other side of the post, red
Very outside of the post in white all the way down. Like the edge or tip of it.

Or all white with the tip of the post red.
