Where can I get some black speakers?

I want to install a sound system in my boat, and am looking to do it as cheaply as possible! Does anyone know of a good place to get some black waterproof speakers that are any good? Im hoping someone can speak from experiance and tell me that the sound quality is OK.

When I was building my system the Marine Superstore at PS had some in Black for around 45.

I think, from memory, they were made by Sony and @150W.

Obviously I can't comment on their sound quality as I went with some two part speakers from Ebay in light Grey for around 25.

Worth a look if you are down that way.

White speakers and a tin of black car paint?

Celulose paint sticks well to plastic. I think the solvent softens it and gives a good bond.
Just make sure you can take the the grilles come off before you buy the speakers.
