gold speakers?

So I really like the look of Klipsch but I'm curious, are there any other manufacturers that use gold speakers? Looking for black wood veneer with gold drivers. They're going in a solid black room with gold highlights and I'm stuck on this look.

I think the Klipsch "gold" you refer to is really more of a "copper" look. I'm not sure if that makes a difference for you or not. Have you seen them in person to know that they match what you want?

No I haven't seen any in person. It would probably be fine though, I don't know what else would look good other than solid black. Really the only highlights I have is more of a brown than shiny gold, have a framed poster very similar to the one below with the same frame:

Also have the Palliser seats with the antique bronze cup holders, have sconce lights that are antique black with brown/gold highlights, and will eventually have an American Security safe with gold writing. If you have a better idea as to something that isn't modern that would look good I'd be interested but I've been assuming that Klipsch Reference is the best I can get in terms of looks.

Klipsch is the only mfgr. that I'm aware of with the metallic copper drivers in their speakers. B&W 600 series has yellow Kevlar drivers if you're looking for something other than black. Most people buy for sound, rather than looks. Keep the grills on and it won't matter.

BIC Acoustech used to use gold-ish drivers, but Klipsch warned them to stop that as they looked too much like Klipsch's own brand. Klipsch is probably the only speaker manufacturer to use that hue on their drivers.

Can you say Bose and B&O? I think it's on the contrary - most people buy for 1)looks, 2) features and then 3) sound - outside of people like us on forums, of course.
