That looks like the way to go bud  :thumbs:

just thinking... I have the original tops to my speakers I stopped using... they cold save you some work & give me some space.. you would need to make a new baffle but it`s removable. They have many angles which could make you happy can fit from 6" downwards.

I would be very happy Sean. Would love to see what they look like though. Them "angles" got me all gaga

If you look in my build thread for the rosewood ones, I initially had a smaller top with an angled front & back baffle... sides parallel.. those ones.

That is actually the best option.

Jip. You can yes. Just get a good quality one. After that use a good primer, after that you spray fin layer of black spray and flat it down then, you will then see where you need to fill up whene there stil small black spots showing. Take your time because prepping is really important

You might try painting, especially MFD edges, with a mixture of woodglue/water, then sand etc

Ek sal n bietjie versigtig wees met water naby mdf. Mdf swell baie vinnig op as jy water op dit sit.
