I have a pair of black oak finish M22's that I am using as part of an outdoor theater. Unfortunately, I dropped one of them on my flagstone patio. The integrity of the cabinet looks ok but the finish is quite scuffed on one side.

Can I sand and refinish the cabinet? Any recommendations or pointers on how to do so?

Thanks for any advice.

The Axiom speakers are a vinyl wrap, not wood finish, unless you paid extra for the wood veneeer?

No, I didn't pay extra for the veneer. Are there any DIY repairs for the vinyl wrapped cabinet?

Hello Mike,

It is possible to paint vinyl-wrap cabinets. There was a thread some years ago about this subject, and others on the forums may recall what steps are necessary to ensure the paint adheres to the vinyl wrap.

Email my Axiom colleague Jean-Claude ( ) who knows what's involved in painting an Axiom vinyl-wrap finish.

You could always veneer over the vinyl. One member here has done that.

There are several spray paints designed to be applied to plastic. Krylon, for example. As a test, maybe you could get a sample board from Axiom to make sure nothing odd happens.
