Needs a rounded or contoured top to give it that headstone affect.

Those are screaming to be clad in stone!

Sandblasted black marble for a totally mat finish.

There's something called Angola Blue, which is pitch black with tiny specks of blue dust in it.

What a cool concept.

Funnily enough I'm been reading this thread recently about another Hawking inspired speaker.

Hello

This is beautiful idea. Could you also make version for other popular drivers? For example Mark Audio Alpair 7. I have a pair of ver 1 Alpair 7 waiting for inspiration.
