I bought a pair of XM9's a few weeks ago and decided that I wanted to have them color matched to my boat. I think they came out pretty good. Here are some pictures of the speakers when I received them, broke 'em down, and taped 'em up;

I will be powering them with an Exile Harpoon. The rest of the stereo will consist of an Exile XI800.4 powering 6 Exile SX65 coaxials, and a Kicker ZX1000.1 powering 2 Kicker L7 10" subs. The headunit is a Kenwood KMR-440U, and I have a BlueSea ACR for the dual battery setup.

I actually didn't paint them, I just took them to a local automotive paint guy. He scuffed them down, and used a PPG adhesion promoter and PPG paint. To match the color I took the swim platform to the paint shop and they scanned it. I got the DuPont paint code, unfortunately I could not find a local distributor for DuPont paint. It was like $100 +$30 in paint.

I too am excited to get them on the boat, unfortunately I live in Michigan and have a few weeks yet before the boat will be out of hibernation.
