Hi. My Genelec 8040A have a lot of scratches because of traveling. I really would like them to look like new again. Does genelec offers service like that or is possibility to get original paint ?

Hi,

We don't offer paint services, we will replace the whole cabinet if it's required. The original finishing is made with a process called powder coating which is a complex process.

Hi Tommy,

Maybe I was unclear with my previous message. We don't provide any custom colours, we can just replace the cabinet with its original finish/colour.

Take your monitors in to an automotive or custom paint shop that does powder coating. Its about $100 for both of them here in the US for custom pain jobs this size.

Hi Ilkka.

I am also interested -how much is a replacement cabinet set for 8040B?

Is there a difference in price for Dark Grey, White, and Raw?

Thanks.
