Monitor 7 Refresh

So I bought a pair of Monitor 7’s in an alley for $20 the other day. One cabinet had blown drivers. Have been wanting to do a rework project, so I dove in. Ordered a pair of 6502’s on eBay that had already been powergrabbed and dynamatted. Picked up a pair of RD0-194’s from Polk and went to town. Stripped the old damaged vinyl with a heat gun. Veneered the cabinets with Ash. Stained with Old Masters Spanish Oak, topped with 4 coats of polyurethane. Built some stands out of scrap. Really fun project. They sound and look great now! Maybe do the crossovers next...

    Nice. Those are worth bragging up. I love it when the monitors get a facelift. They deserve to look like they sound.
