    I just got a Warwick 410 cab and I liked the sound a lot more than the Genz Benz cabs, but I love the look of the GB's. The White backwall just looks so amazing. So, my question is, Has anyone ever tried painting the backwall of their cabinet? I was thinking white, yellow, or red would look pretty killer. I won't do it unless you guys recommend it, though.
     
  2. Are you talking about the baffle board where the speakers are mounted? I used a 1/8" sheet of finish quality plywood to reface my cabs. Just cut out the holes, paint it and use the speakers to attach it. If you don't like it take it out and throw it away. Your cab will still be original.
