How would I go about turning my silver speakers to black ?

Try a trade on the classifieds.

You could get them powder coated...if they would withstand the process (I have no idea if they would)

I don't think they would withstand powder coating as that involves the items being placed in an oven.

There is the obvious - spray paint or you could try taking them to a sign maker and having them wrapped in a matt vinyl.

I think because the grill and the area behind the grill is silver, you would need to take them apart and then get them sprayed.

Just had a look at my CD50s and they have screws on the back and plastic end-caps that look removeable.

So if they come are easy and you can remove the divers and front grill then spray painting should be quite straight forward.

Grab a 12 inch stick. Widdle it down and sand it. Enchant it. Then point the pointy end at your speakers and say "Coloress Blackess" and they will turn black.
