I am basically resizing an Altec Magnificent cabinet down to 9 cu ft for my Altec 604s. That is all vintage 3/4 ply, with walnut veneer, in good condition. I am adding the baffle (dado in) and a center support (dado in) from 3/4 ply (also quite vintage). So at the end of the day this is a 'standard' Altec cabinet with a baffle. Question is - after I blacken it with india ink, is there acoustic merit in lacquering the face of the baffle, or best to leave it 'raw' plywood?
I imagine the baffle people do a lot of experimentation, and if a concensus has been reached on 'finish or not finish baffle' - I would be interested in the merits / drawbacks...
