@wasser , I clamped the laminate to a scrap piece of baseboard after making sure it was straight, then flush trimmed. Installing it was easy because the Volt 6 baffles (at least the slanted ones I have) are a little oversized.

That's what I was thinking. Although I didn't do mine that way, that's exactly how I'd planned to do it had I glued the baffles first. I opted to glue them second because I was unsure of being able to align the whole edge laminate on the F-15s, especially with the instant bond of the contact cement. The wood glue was much more forgiving.

I have some DIYSG Marty Cubes to build after this so I will think about lamination of the front before I glue them up if possible....

What do people think about the clear coat after using a Rustoleum Enamel ? Do You need it ? I would think the paint is pretty tough for outdoor use the speakers will be indoors in climate controlled area.

So were the photos showing paint damaged on the fronts?

Wow , after I repainted the front Baffle they look really good. I used about 3 cans of the Rustoleum Enamel Satin black. I decided not to do a clear coat because I read too many people having issues with cracking and yellowing etc. The rustoleum should hold up well as I wont be beating them up.

If I may offer a suggestion with regard to adapting laminate/veneer to precut face plates? Put the laminate on first before the face plate. This will always oversize your cabinet. To correct the transition, mask the edge of the laminate with tape (I use fine line autobody tape, but green tape or regular masking tape will work well enough), and mask another parallel to it, basically like you would a pin stripe. In the case of a baffle with a 3/4" roundover, approximately 5/16" is a good size. Then take 5 minute epoxy, and mix either colloidal silica (cabosil), talcum powder, or even baking flour will work, with it, to about a peanut butter consistency. Then just fill the masked separation. Remove the tape as soon as the epoxy starts to kick.

With 5 minute epoxy, you may have enough time to do two sides per mix so don't make too much. 10 or 15 min (or longer) epoxy would be better



It will leave you with a very neat profile that looks like a professional factory fit.


Mask and paint the faces after.
