Default fostex cone treatment

I would like to color the cones on my new fe127's to match the bass drivers they will be mated with(black)

I'm not a big fan of white but I don't want to wreck them. Is there a safe way to do this??

Thanks

I've never done that but I would try a light paint such as aquarel-paint in order not to alter the characteristics of the cone. Will probably remain a light back, but could be a start...
What about painting the bass driver in white?? The extra weight of the paint could have a positive impact in terms of slightly greater moving mass (Mms) and lower Fs, and hence possibly a bit more bass (if needed)...
