The texture is a real grabber if using the supplied roller for a one coat wonder
I've always used a flat black acrylic , $20 / gallon, for maybe even 2 primer coats, looking for a nominally nicely finished and well sealed surface/ box before even the flaw hiding duratex
Not only will a primer coat or 2 make the duratex , $70+ /gallon, go a heck of a lot farther but
having a smoother, better prepped out surface will "let" you use a smoother roller for a finer grained texture that may not need to be hiding "imperfections" you should or could have taken time to buff up a tad
I did make it to Senior Painter for the City of LA before switching to "Field Operations Engineer for "Sanitation""
and i have the pictures to prove it
and then after all that, wrt light reflection, I use a rattlecan matte spray acrylic , 2 moderate coats, over the well cured duratex,
dusting / cleaning speakers is something we all look forward to , on a regular basis, no doubt
and yes, that pic is
a 110 tall 2.5 million gallon digester tank that "decided" something had to "go"
