what to surround my box with?

Recommended Posts

well i was started thinking today at school, what should i do to make my box look good, i mean the look of MDF just doesnt cut it for me, so i was thinking if i should carpet it, but then,BOOM :idea: i had an idea, i was thinking if i could put linoleum around the box like 2 layers worth and spray paint it red or another color, will this work or are my ideas just stupid, i kinda dont want to carpet for my box because it is to original, what else could i do besides carpet and fiberglass

 

thanks


lets see..........

If you use linolium and try to bend it on the corners it will rip and tear a lot. linolium is meant for a pretty straight surface I beleive.

Linoleum was invented in England in 1863 by Frederick Walton who coined the name linoleum from the Latin name, linum, which means flax, and oleum, which means oil. Later in the century, Michael Nairn, a flooring manufacturer in Kirkcaldy, Scotland perfected the flooring, introducing qualities such as inlaid patterning — a feature seen today.

 

Linoleum is a flooring that is manufactured by oxidizing linseed oil to form a thick mixture called linoleum cement. The cement is cooled and mixed with pine resin, and wood flour to form sheets on a jute backing. The term, linoleum is often used incorrectly to describe any sheet flooring, when in fact flooring can be made from other materials such as polyvinyl chloride.

If ur gonna put linoleum, only to spray paint it, what's the use?

 

just SPRAY PAINT the box, 4get the linoleum!

 

I never seen sexy linoleum anyway, why would u want it on ur box? I think MDF would look bettter.

I would suggest primer. I just painted the face of my box and it sucked up a lot of paint. It would have been cheaper for me to use primer.

I decided to cover my box with black tweed instead of regular carpet. I have an eD 15a with the flat cone. The weave on the flat cone of the sub kind of matches the weave of the tweed on the box. I think that is looks real good. I like the look alot better than just regular gray carpet. Now I just need to finish the rest of my trunk.

Food for thought.... whatever extra u put on the box(ex: carpet, bed liner, vinyl, tweed, etc) whatever u put on there is going to take a db or 2 away. If u are going to compete spray paint that bish and u wont lose a db.
