    A vinyl wrap may be an easier option.

    The thing you need to remember is that the outer finish is not likely wood on an inexpensive speaker like this. Likely it is some type of vinyl. You could potentially darken the finish, but you need to make sure what ever finish you use is compatible with plastic. That's not that hard to do, but it is relatively important.

    Is swapping speakers an option? I would think the detriment to the value of your speakers and the cost of the wrap itself would probably outweigh any financial cost of swapping. Presuming you can actually find speakers in the colour you like of course
