Here it is after some Bondo and some sanding.



Where I filled in was not flush and looked bad. I think this will be an improvement.

I still have a little ways to go before I repaint.

I started this mod a good while back but I've been off and on with it. I want to finish up soon so I plan to spend more time on it. Hopfully.......

I've bought some select pine for the speaker enclosures. This weekend I plan to build them. I'll be posting pics when I get then assembled.

Sand it down and start again. The best way to do it.

I also like the idea of this body filler! Very cool!

Thanks! Yea, I'm going to sand the sub down after it's all smooth. Also I've been looking at some other mods using Acrylic and it's given me some ideas. I've not been so sure on how I was going to incorporate the cold cathodes to the bottom of the sub or what kind of feet I was going to use. Now I want to use Acrylic somehow. Clear, colored layers? Maybe a few layers with standoffs between them? I'm kicking ideas around but I'm sure I want to use Acrylic for sure.
Oh, I think I should use Acrylic for the satellite speaker boxes too...with LED's !!

Hmm... I'd be a bit wary about the resonance of acrylic for a speaker box. I think you'd have to use multiple layers, probably with something like a clear epoxy sandwiched in between.

I've given some thought to this too. I'm thinking about 3/8" acrylic and not making it a box. Tell me if this makes sense or not. What if I make the sides flat and a half oval. This would make where the top and back, bottom and back meet not at a 90 deg. angle but instead rounded. I'll have to heat the acrylic with my heat gun on a curved surface to do this. This should help the acoustics. I've never used anything but wood before in speaker building and I have no idea on how acrylic will effect the sound quality. Possibly I should seek advice from a professional before I go further. But just think, clear or smoke colored acrylic speakers with LED's! That would rock !

I hope it will look as good as the image I have of it in my head!

I've not done a thing with the mod since my last post. I'm reminded every time I enter my garage that I need to finish. My work bench is cluttered with various computer parts. Then I have paint cans, sand paper, rags and stuff added in to boot. It's a huge mess. It's easy to start a mod but oh so hard to finish.

I had elaborate plans for this mod but my enthusiasm has tapered off. Now I just want to finish it while still doing a nice job.

The sub will be finished in black with red around the speaker grill. I'll add pyramid shaped feet so to get the sub off the floor a couple inches. I may or may not add cold cathode lights to the bottom. I've already bought lights a good while back but they are blue. If I use lights I'll get red.

The desktop speakers I'll be building myself. I'll construct out of wood and paint black. The ring around the speaker I'll paint red as to match the sub. I'll also add feet as to match sub. I also may or may not add lighting to the bottom of the desk tops. If I do it will be red. The controller will be black with red for the volume and bass dials.

This speaker mod will match my Soprano mod so to be used together in my son's room.
