    Check out paints in your local B&Q -- you can even get silver, aluminium and chrome these days in brush paint and aerosol cans.

    Prime first, paint after. If you can, I would take the speakers apart; if not, some very serious masking is in order.

    Hrm... chrome speakers.

    I'd wait until they're out of warrantee before you do anything....

    The Plastikote sprays have some fairly funky finishes, but would cost a fair whack, as a can doesn't go that far.

    You could veneer them with a real wood, then stain.
