    BeoLab 1 - All White

    Those who know me know i love to experiment with colours.

    So, i present to you..  the Limited Edition (No.1 of a run of.. errr.. 1) - the 'all-white' BeoLab 1.

    Finished in Ferrari 'Bianco Avus' which is quite a soft white and matches the frets very nicely.

    What do you think? Big Smile

    They will need a white BL2 to go with them though!

    I had to get them laser cut in dark grey pearlescent vinyl. Best i could do.

    Re: BeoLab 1 - All White

    Congratulations, Lee! Fantastic work!

    How long did it take to modify the speakers? Did you completely disassembled them? Please give us more details of your white beauties :-) 

    On the photo your frets seem to look far better than the white frets of the Beolab 8000 or 9 because I can't see the speakerholes on yours! The white frets on Beolab 8000 and 9 look... ugly and cheap.

    Re: BeoLab 1 - All White

    Yes - they were totally disassembled. The casings went to a specialist automotive refinishers and were sprayed in genuine Ferrari paint after being etch primed.  The frets were professionally re-covered.

    My next project is a pair in Ferrari Rosso Corsa with Black frets and the Ferrari Scuderia badge on the rear.  Not to everyones taste, but if you're into F1 or indeed Ferrari's then these will really float your boat !!
