    Default Unusual speakers (paint over) how to plasterboard?


    Hi people.

    I need some help.

    I am building a house and am going to install Stealth Acoustics speakers.
    http://stealthacoustics.com/products...ow-to-install/

    These are designed for the american market where they do not skim over their walls and just fill the joints with "mud" I am worried this will give me a poor quality finish.

    So these are the ideas I have had
    1 - fermacell boards and then just apply a fermacell fine surface finish to the whole lot
    http://www.fermacell-drylining.co.uk/the-product-range
    2 - Just normal plasterboard and just joint and tape it
    3 - normal plasterboard and apply fermacell Fin surface finish (which is supposed to give it a paster like finish)

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    This is a tape and jointing forum and as with most systems, tape & joint, skim, render etc the finnish you get depends on how good your tradesman is. IF your going to have a go at this your self then yes you will end up with a poor quality finnish.

    100% will not do it my self, the speakers are worth over 5k so will not be messing around with them.

    I like these. Unfortunately for me my wife just said "No, you cant have them!"
