Thanks for the input guys.. I guess I will be going with the usual all black subwoofer:( This is for a home gym remodel I am just finishing up.
As far as speakers, I was torn between the Axiom in-walls vs a pair of Songbirds mounted on-wall. The Axioms don't even compare but they offer a much cleaner look, which is what I prefer in this room. Even though the Axiom's are not the greatest thing, they will certainly out perform the Onkyo HTIB speakers I have been using for years. I had the Axioms custom painted with a white to match the color of my trim, doors, and window coverings.
It would be nice to have a similar sub but the audio rack and my gym equipment is black so it will fit in. I do have a thing for custom finishes though. The last I knew, I was the only person to own multiple high gloss piano black SubmersiveHPs. I don't mind spending money, I just don't se a point in this small of an application.
