They look great!

I'm currently trying to paint my 4pis and I'm starting to wish I did veneer. Or picked a simple paint like flat black.

I want to do veneer, but I'm worried it will be ruined when I move the speakers. I usually do not live in an apartment for more than a year or two. So every year I will be loading these into my car and ruining the finish on the veneer. Plus the corners of the MDF are already rounded off sadly!

Am I being too worried?

The paint's finish won't be any tougher. at least that's what I'm finding right now as I try to finish my cabinets.

I ended up using a 1" round over bit on the front sides and a 3/8's round over bit on the top, now the corners you see are all rounded off to begin with, it looks pretty cool too. Might be something to consider if you have access to a router.

If you really want to protect them you could check out the corner protectors for pro audio stuff on Parts express.

If they are going to get some abuse, I'd round off all the corners as BobTahoe mentioned and then Duratex them.
