Wrapping does seem like a great alternative to painting! I'm interested in wrapping the sides of my Reactor (not the driver). Seems like I would need to remove the side panels to tuck the wrap behind for clean edges. 

Does anyone know of any videos or threads about removing the side panels of a Reactor?

The silver/gold side panels? At least the silvery ones come off really easily if one pushes gently on the pointed parts closest to the woofers.

Thanks for the tip! I have the new mini Phantom called the Reactor so the side panels are white and circle around the driver in a way. Hesitant to try to pry them off without knowing if that’s the correct way to remove them haha

Given what Devialet is saying about the phantoms that there is no way to open them and reassemble them together, I would advise you against trying to open them.

That would be a one way operation in my humble opinion.

That is good advice for sure! Although, it would make sense for them to at least somewhat come apart in order for Devialet to repairs.

Well on the regular Phantom the side panels look like they pop off pretty easily! I'm hoping there's an easy damage-free way to only remove the side panels on the Reactor too but I don't think I have the juevos to make one of my Reactors the guinea pig haha

Update: both panels come off and go back on very easily! Smile

Now, what color to vinyl wrap the panels? Gold like the big daddy Phantom? Slightly dark blue? Carbon fiber? Hmm...
