Morning all -
As promised I finally have some (well a lot really
) pics of my custom, pimped out, totally sick, newly painted Revel Studio2's and matching Voice2.
But first, here's a reminder of what they used to look like:
And now, IMO, here's what Revel should have offered as an option to begin with:
(That's one of my cute pugs, Roxy, wondering what the hell is making that bright flash of light.
I'd like to point out a couple of details that aren't totally obvious. First, while the face is still black, like the original, it is now a satin finish instead of the high-gloss. I wanted some contrast in the texture/finish between the face of the speaker and the rest of the new high-gloss deep metallic blue. The other detail is that the posts that separate the speaker cabinet from the base are now a contrasting silver with a warmish tone picked specifically to match the tone of the titanium drivers. I did this to bring out this detail of the speaker and to break-up the sameness of the previous all-black finish. And I'm still very proud of how the terminal door turned out. It transformed what was a rather unremarkable plastic door into a nice finishing touch. And yes, even though it is on the back of the speaker, in my set-up you see the back of the left speaker each time you walk into the room.
More pics to follow. . . I am such a show-off!
