The shine is pretty deep. I was very surprised how good it looked. You are right, i am a rookie when it comes to paint jobs. But we have youtube for all that.
I will finish it during the christmas holidays. It takes me a little bit longer then expected. I sanded on one speaker box 2 days and i still have the second one to do. And then of course the polishing part. I only buffed the teardrop to make sure that i am on the right track!

I was a little worried at first but if you know what to do then its not so difficult. You just have to be very careful not to miss anything. Your surfaces have to be perfect otherwise it will show. Piano black will show anything!

I could not resist. I had to put the teardrop in place to see how it looks.

Thanks guys,
the pictures don't do it justice. I am taking the pictures with my old shop camera.
Anyway, everything is now polished!
Tomorrow, i have to make several trips to get everything home. My Christmas starts tomorrow!

Was wondering that myself, The B&W 800D are stated to be 225 each. Will be interesting to have a comparison of the two.

I can hardly move the speaker box by myself without the teardrop. Fully assembled, it will be a 2 man job. I could weigh them but it is just to much trouble. The whole speaker box has a 32mm (1 1/2") wall. All the slots are filled with resin and the whole speaker is wrapped with a fiberglass cloth which is also covered with 4 layers of epoxy resin. I think that one speaker will weigh more then 225lb fully assembled.

The plinth's are now totally done. The crossovers are installed and the studs are mounted again. I think it looks pretty good. Time to wrap things up and bring the stuff home!

OK ~ First off this is an incredible picture of the finish on that speaker. It looks like you are looking thru a mirror at the tree & wall Amazingly done IMO & would have to say you couldn't get something so well done from B&W!



The plinth's Are most impressive & I personally can't wait to see the speaker all put together having the Black / Red / Blue showing

Incredible job on these speakers Reference
Brent

Changing to 4K ~ Got the 60" TV. Next the player, movies. Then the sound system ~ Again LOL........
