Was just loading up for my gig tomorrow and noticed some chipping on the bottom front of my sub... do u guys recommend any particular paint or....idealy some sort of flat rubber wrap around trim to pretty it back up and make it a tad more durable?

Thanks steve... that might be the ticket... id definitely prefer some sort of rubberized plate or something...instead of painting it every few gigs....such a pain...

its down on the very bottom so even if the paint wasnt an exact match it will be hidden in the shadows id hope

I used truck bed liner on my old speakers.
It does have a little more "stretch" than regular paint.
It's less than $10 a can (spray can) and I used one can per speaker.
As for a paint match, I did tape off the important parts and sprayed the ENTIRE speaker.
oh dear...that prospect scares me...lol... i do love the idea of the truck liner paint tho!

Really was not difficult....even for ME!!!
The speaker I had used a metal grill to cover the entire front face
so I covered that with one sheet of newspaper.
I removed the handles (6 screws each)
and taped a small piece of paper over the speaker connections.
Since the speakers were "textured"...and the truck bed liner is fairly thick...
I didn't have to be real neat with the paint.
