    Re: Enclosure looks

    I usually just look at MDF even though I have rolls of gray carpet in the shed. My latest creation I resined inside and out, put a light sanding on the outside, and hit it with a rattle can of flat black:

    --Wife's car: 2013 Chevrolet Impala LTZ, Kenwood DNX470, GermanMAESTRO components on CT125.2, 2x AT10"s on an AT800.1, RF Deadskin deadening.

    --Work truck: 2014 GMC 2500 crew cab, Kenwood DNX470, Kenwood front stage, DD M1A on a pair of American Bass XD10s.

    Re: Enclosure looks

    That's correct. Flat black on resin...

    Re: Enclosure looks

    I like vinyl. I also like a combination of carpet and stain. Not just stained birch ply either, but something a little more high end.

    My next enclsoure will be wrapped in black carpet with a stained oak front baffle. I'll most likely make my own stain by boiling down a few pouches of Red man chewing tobacco and combining the results with some ammonia...
