In addition to the sound, the optics are also decisive when choosing the loudspeaker. The speaker also is used in some movie theater rooms or home theater rooms. The choice of colors for speakers is unfortunately very limited. White and black are usually available and mostly some wood veneers, but special colors are not available. So what speaks against having the speakers painted in the color of your choice? The costs depend on the size. To what extent this makes sense everyone has to decide for themselves, but speakers with a beautiful real wood veneer are less suitable than simple speakers that are used in color-coordinated rooms. For example in a conference room.
Disassemble the loudspeaker for repainting
First, the loudspeaker must be prepared so that only the surfaces that are to be painted are visible. The easiest way is to dismantle all disturbing parts. The speaker driver is usually quite easy to remove by loosening the screws on the basket. Be careful of the screws so you can not lose them.
Mask the loudspeaker for repainting
After dismantling the components, all other surfaces that are not to be painted are taped off. For smaller areas you can only use masking tape, if the surfaces are larger they can be protected with a piece of paper and masking tape. You can also get high-quality brushes here at Sand the speaker surface
The surface must be sanded so that the paint application is even and adheres. Very fine grain is sufficient for this. Under no circumstances should the paint be removed completely. If you look at the surface against the light, it should appear matt. Very fine sanding marks.
Prepare the paint spray system for the perfect painting of the loudspeaker
We use a professional painting device for painting. The paint spray system is cleaned before painting. The nozzle and paint container was carefully processed with thinner after the last use. For these loudspeakers, we use a 2 component paint (paint and hardener) this is applied and filled into the paint container. This one is a one-time assignment.
Apply paint to the speakers
The paint is applied in our painting booth. First, the spray gun is used to remove dust from the speakers. Afterward, the paint is applied with a protective mask. Thanks to the professional system and good preparation, the paint layer is absolutely even.
Assemble the speakers
After the paint on the speakers has dried for a day, they can be reassembled without any problems. If you have applied the masking tape carefully beforehand, you will get clean edges. In the case of the speakers in the picture, we also painted the speaker fabric, as this is a low-pass speaker and the sound is not affected.
