I have had some cabinets sprayed with Line-X and am very happy with the results. It's a lot less work than doing it yourself and cost was reasonable. I saw John Haliburton suggest it in a post awhile ago and am sold on the process.

I took the Line-X approach a few years ago after getting tired of sanding, filling and repainting.  The prep is greater but I haven't had a chip or a dent since.  IMHO it's worth the extra expense.

hello, guys,

need advice for repaint speaker cabs. I have two speaker, which need to repaint. I found, that there are two main paints for speakers - warnex in europe, and duratex in usa. These are most used speaker cabs paint with matereal. Now, i found in this forum, that mostly everyone which is repainting speakers, chosing these paints. My question is - if speaker has allready some matterial, coating, from manufacture? Why do this one more time and take second layers for this same matterial? Isnt not enough to repaint with simple water resistan black paint for wood?
Matterial still will be the same?

Glad this got re-bumped.  We are getting ready to do 6 dual 12" x 2" horn EV cabs.  Great tips in this post.

Thanks guys.
