Tswhitsel, I entirely agree that this website is good but in reality I posted this post in responce to the best colour finish that was posted previousely that I believe also banal. As if you can find out most of the mass posts are banal that state best of something or worst of something. Don't take it so hard buddy!;)
I recall some home-made speakers boxes a friend did in college that used very "large particle" particle board. Enough to make one hurl. Especially after his cat rubbed up againt the unfinished edges with the resulting tufts of fur sticking out all over the place!
The loud colors of the AG horns are not at all my cup-o-tea.
Actually, part of the reason for the black stain is to cover up a botched attempt at another stain!! I was told this once when asking about B-stock Dunlavys, that there were fewer of them since the black ash finish came into being! As for my feelings on speakers, since mine are black ash I like 'em just fine (actually they work better in my room and on these speakers than a nicer woodgrain), but there are some automobile finishes from Wilson (I'm talking the Ferrari yellow and red, not the titanium or black gloss) that I'm not too crazy about. And sometimes even the nicest of veneers might not work on a speaker because the speaker is too small to show the full grain pattern of the wood (think of an Infinity IRS's Santos Rosewood finish on a mini-monitor).
That HotRod version of a Meadowlark--didn't they have flames or something on it? I thought it was tacky as hell (no pun intended: I didn't catch it 'til I finished the next paragraph).
Regarding the "banalness"--I do find these threads more interesting though than ones asking which cables to get, or any other pseudo-scientific product that has insignificant increase in sound performance. And with these threads opinions are ok.
