What subs are those? It looks like you have a mishmash of drivers being thrown in there. While a lot of pro sound drivers are designed to have similar electromechanical parameters, you might not be getting all the performance you could be getting. And if those are DIY subwoofers, where did you get that perforated metal grille material?

The bottom subs are four Peavy HDH-3 subs.The inner speaker on both towers is a carvin 1588 main. and the top is a Yourkville Maxim 1000. We put the carvin main on bottom because it was to heavy for me to put on top at most shows. And my help is not always help. Is this bad that I put the carvin here?

I checked out the Duratex , and yep that's the stuff I think im gonna use. Cool

I would not suggest fine sanding the cabs. Strip them, fill the cracks, dents, scratches and holes if any. Then  sand with 60 or 80 gritt. Most of these heavy coatings will bond better to a coarse surface.

I second the Duratex. I just gone done applying it to two sample boxes a few days ago and it is really great stuff. Virtually no odor, simple water clean up, no thinning down, rolls on with ease! Exactly what I was looking for.

Hi,

Do you happen to have a link or more info on Duratex? I googled and it came back with hundreds of links but couldn't find the paint or a US supplier.

Thanks,

Mike

Robbie
would you be able to take some good pictures of your finished product, and tell us how you applied it to the cabnet( roller, spray ) that would be great.

Mike here is the link I found http://www.acrytech.com/DuraTex.htm

and for all the other speaker builders out there. Im finally ripping all the old carpet off of my subs and getting started on this prodject. On the front corners of the subs there is a nice bit of damage that will need to be filled. Now if I fill this with bondo then apply the DuraTex do you guys think that it will break off real easy or will it take a few beatings before it needs repaired again. I dont know how strong the DuraTex is yet or for that matter how strong the bondo is. Should I use another filler for the corners?

Thanks

Robbie,

I tried to send you a PM.  Did you get it?

Seems the makers of Duratex are down since the last hurricane and will be a while before they are able to ship any product.  Sad  I was hoping to paint some of my cabs as well. Anyone have a supplier that I can buy some from in the meantime??

Sorry for the delay. I will be completing a small project this week that will use the duratex. I'l show pictures of the process and finished result. I might even just make another thread out of it.

Thanks
