... 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

Bondo has very low mechanical strength. I would use it to fill holes, dents and other low spots, but not corners. Marine-tex or other high-strength epoxies are better suited. Let's face it, corners have a tough time with impacts. Better yet, protect the corners with hardware.

Great to hear of the acceptance of DuraTex Texture Coating out there. If anyone has pictures of a completed project using the DuraTex and would allow me, I'd like to put them on our website to show other Pro Audio guys how it looks. Also, I'd like to quote you on the website if you will agree to allow me to do it. Thanks for allowing us to help you with this great product.

  well , I tried to order duratex and it was really hard to get it , I guess because of the hurricane , so after one and half month waiting I decided to cancel the order and start looking on the web for a different product , I found this product called duplicolor truck bed coating , it is a really good product , you can buy it in any autoparts store (pep boys , Kragen , napa autoparts , etc) and it is really easy to apply , you can use a roller and it gives you a nice textured look , like most of proffessional speakers have rigth now , you can also find it in a spray  , I bought both kinds to give it a try , and I ended up using the spray can, it covers the surface really fast and gives an even textured look , I will post some pictures later and see what you guys think about it.

   here is the website :  www.duplicolor.com

Jorge, I tried the Duplicolor and didn't have a lot of luck with it. It became brittle after a while and with my boxes packed together in the trailer it began to rub off in the form of a fine dust that got all over my hands every time I touched one. I ended up using Herculiner and had much better results although the texture is a little rougher. Wish I could post a picture, but I haven't gone digital yet!

Good Luck
Scott

 hi Scott , I had the same problem the first time I used it , I used my spray gun and compressor and I think I didn't use the right pressure and volume of paint , so after a few days  I start having the same problem you had , the paint will come off easyly with my hand , that's when I tried their spray can , and since then the coating has adhere to the wood really good , I have use my speakers a few times and the coating seems be working pretty good right now , I will upload some pictures later .

i used to use this stuff back in my car audio competition days to paint my sub box with.  it looks GREAT, is very tough, and is available in multiple colors, just let your imagination be your guide.  i painted mine semi-gloss black with a grey fleck for effect; like i said, it looks great!  i highly recommend it.

BS-212 Duratex Photos
« Reply #29 on: December 16, 2005, 12:32:41 am »

     I just painted my BS-212's with Acrytech Duratex.
I used a hand roller for the first coat, and a textrured foam roller for the second coat.

    The stuff has the consistancy of Jello Pudding, and smells just like art Acrylic Paints for Painters or, siliconized acrylic caulking.
