Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

Baffle finish ??


Is there a preferred finish for the baffle (in a ported enclosure)? I am planning on tinting the baffle black with india ink so it will not be so visible behind the speaker cloth (or maybe it will look so nice that my wife will not require coverage).

After that comes the question - from an audio performance perspective should it be left natural wood, or is it better to put on a coat or two of lacquer to make the surface more sound 'reflective'/less sound absorbant. Since I am spending a fair amount of time trying to do these right, maybe there is an optimal approach for this fairly large surface (approx 42 x 24 inches). Of maybe it just indicated the operation of an obsessive mind........
