    Take the long piece of vinyl and apply it on the lower side of the right side and start running it upwards. Take it to the top part of the cabinet, followed by sticking it to the left side, working it downwards. In order to wrap the vinyl under the speaker cabinet, you can flip it over and expose the bottom area. Spray the adhesive and press the remaining vinyl against it. Make sure you do not leave any bubbles in the vinyl when applying.

    If you find any wrinkles in the vinyl, remove them as much as you can.  Allow the glue to dry up overnight, before you touch your speaker. Remove the newspaper which you applied at the front panel of your speaker. Repeat the process for every speaker you have.
