Default Full Range speakers in colors???

Curious to know if there are any speakers offered in different colors that do not cost an arm and a leg. Why are most speakers black?

Very curious

Funny ...well that big boxes are called coffins
In italian, a box is cassa and a coffin is cassa da morto
Guess what's the appropiate colour ...

By speakers you mean the cabinets or the drivers?

If you look at the FR gallery you'll see a wide variety of finishes and colors folks have done for their boxes. Lot of nice ones there.

If you mean full-range drivers, they are not all black either though black drivers do have a "pro" look...

Some Fostex drivers are ivory/white; some models are charcoal grey
Lowther and Feastrex (seen pictures only) are white
Mark Audio has a wide range:
- Metal cones: Copper, gold, titanium grey, white (MAOP cones)
- Paper cones: Light blue, beige, and black

I was asking about the drivers. Specificly the cone and surround.

Too bad the surround and dust cap are black.
