all of the other sub boxes i've had have been carpeted. thinking about painting my new box instead. anyone else gone with paint instead of carpet? if so, how did it turn out for you?
do i sand the box down first, primer it, then paint it?

Yeah, but I'd recommend carpet if you plan on moving the box around. Them suckers are heavy and its pretty easy to chip a corner if painted.

I dunno, I painted a couple boxes with that Formby's Granite Textured Stone Finish after priming with some Killz. That stuff looked cool but didn't hold up to well.

See what Jonathan or one of the other guys who've built mega amounts of boxes has to say. A better paint my hold up just fine.
