Dunno if this should go here, or in Underwear, Clothing and Appearance Issues. Toss-up. See, I got these speakers. Mission 770s. Old but good ... damn phyne, I say. But I've painted a lot of my wooden furniture with black melanine paint and I'd like to do the same with the Missions. They're not looking all that pristine these days. But I'd also like a nice visual match with the painted furniture ... basically, everything else in the room that's wooden. The question: Does painting speakers change their sound in any important way? Anyone have experience here? Anyone know any of the theory that might give an answer?
