Iím painting my Subwoofers white
« on: May 02, 2021, 02:51:57 pm »

Iíve got some old ugly YorkvilleĎs that I got used and I need repaint them for an upcoming installation. I want them wait, what kind of paint do you guys recommend? I know thereís that truck bed liner stuff that everyone loves for black, but thatís no good for this.

If you're installing them and not hauling them around, Rustoleum will work just fine.  Allow to dry a week or so and put on moving blankets to haul.

I think I'd try Duratex white. 
Duratex is good paint.  The black can slightly grey over time, and kinda sticks boxes together when stacked and stored. But short of commercial grade stuff, good epoxy, Line-X etc, it's a good budget type choice (in my limited experience).
All that said, I've never used white.

If they are black now is it best to strip them down to bare wood first?

Or could I just use like 3 layers of primer?

More than the type of paint, surface prep is key!

Do you have an electric or pneumatic powered sander?  A DA or dual-action, that oscillates & rotates with a round pad/disc is probably the best - what I would use.  Depending upon what the surface looks like, #60 grit sanding discs to prep it and remove material.

Depending upon how beat up they are, and how nice you want them to look - get some bondo and plastic squeegees to apply it.  Hand sanding block as well.

I wouldn't strip to bare wood as it's not a furniture refinishing project.  Especially if using a textured coating that is applied with a roller.
