Not just they need repainting, but there is dents in the birch plywood, and a few pin sized holes.
I guess normally wood filler would work for that, but dents in birch ply, and even a few small places where the birch ply has splintered from the abuse the cabs look like they have been through.
What can be done about splintered birch ply? It's only the 1st layer that's damaged, not right the way through it.
Would wood filler work on that almost, or would I need someone alse like putty? And should I remove the splintered layer in the wood or leave it and fill it in with putty or wood filler?
I got the enclosures for free if I bought the 10 inch drivers and hf horns with it.
Now moving onto the damaged pair of Eminence ME10-2008. The problem is the solder tag cardboard terminals are hanging loose as both the rivets have snapped on each.
It would be easy if the other half of the broken rivet wasn't jammed solid in the metal frame.
So how am I going to get that out, with risking damaging the cone or spider if I say drilled out the old piece of the broken rivets?
I'm too much of a clumsy person that I'd probably drill right through the cone or spider or make the hole too big in the frame.
Last but not least, where can I get suitable uk based black paint for pa speakers?
I thought that was ideal but I read this:"Please Note: Tuff Cab is designed primarily for use as a covering for new speaker cabinets and flight cases; due to the potential for reaction between Tuff Cab coating and existing finishes, it is not recommended for re-finishing or touch-up work unless the original paint used is Tuff Cab."
So either I would have to strip all the paint off the enclosures(which would probably be very hard work) and start from scratch or look for a different paint.
