Adding some splash to SK-550 speakers.
Posted 06 December 2009 - 09:55 PM
The speakers surrounds on this model (like many others) are simply made of tar impregnated paper. Gets crispy as a dorito chip over time. Well they needed replacement and true foam dampening will allow the speakers to move more freely. But while it's easy enough to settle for factory looking surrounds, I thought I would take this opportunity to dress up the speakers a bit.
HERE IT IS: CLEARLY NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR REINSTALLATION.
FIRST SPEAKER DONE.
SECOND SPEAKER DONE. New, fresh look without introducing any efficiency robbing paint or dye. Also, should perform better than new since the foam surround should provide better performance than the tar paper surround.
Once new speaker gaskets are installed (none were installed at the factory which contributed to the surround tear), it will be ready for reinstallation. However, the boombox still has a lot of work ahead of it so I'll post the completed boombox when it's done. However, you should know that I REALLY TAKE MY TIME so don't hold your breath -- I've got many projects going concurrently. Whenever one gets frustrating, I move on to another to take the edge off.

As for kindred spirit -- you know what they say -- birds of a feather flock together. I figure there is a reason why we are all gathered here?
