I have these black speakers and the subwoofer that came with my RCA home theatre. They stand out like a sore thumb in my living room. Can you paint them without affecting the sound? What kind of paint do you use. The boxes are wood, of course.

The black fabric faces are creeping me out too. Any suggestions on fabric to cover them?

before you paint them please understand that the warranty will be voided.

yes you can paint them without affecting the sound, but be aware of what Karl_C said. Find an acoustically transparent fabric to re-cover the faces. You can buy the black speaker grille cloth at Joann Fabrics or Radio Shack.Or you can go with other brands with hundreds of colors to choose - Guilford of Maine www.guilfordofmaine.com , Or Mellowtone www.wendellfabrics.com
There are others, but these are the ones I know off the bat.
