Removing the powder coating from 8030s

Removing the powder coating from 8030s

Hey dear community,


I recently bought two used 8030A speakers which have some pretty ugly blemishes in the powder coating. Having seen the new "RAW" colourway, I was wondering if I could just get rid of the paint on mine altogether? It would be just a matter of getting the electronics and drivers out, a thing that is quite easy according to my research. However I'm still wondering what would be the best technique to remove the coating and I'm worried about getting the front power switch into the cabinet after I remove it.


Has anyone here re-painted their monitors or attempted something similar? I'm looking forward to your replies so I can start my little project soon, it has been on my mind for some time now.


All the best!
