They actuall have this stuff to paint on speaker cones that gives a "wet look" finish and helps protect them from the environment.
Sub cones are usually heavy (not all tho') anyway so a few extra grams of paint shouldn't change much. Be warned, once you do it, there's no turning back.
The thing is, just spraying on a coat of your favorite color will probably not give you the effect you want. But hey, who knows? If they're inexpensive woofers, give it a go, you might get lucky. If they're expensive woofers, do you wanna risk it?
LOL. why would you want your subs to look wet?
sub cones may be "heavy", as you say... but think about this... suspension system "A", combined with mass A provides result "A". suspension system A with mass A plus .05 grams changes everything. so even if they are heavy, a slight change is going to change all the other characterisits...
like i said before, it might not be noticable to all, but it WILL change... all the specs i listed before are going to change DRAMATICALLY... but, can the normal person discern that... most likely not
and zepto--"natural resonance = Fs... you meant the same thing, but the technical is FS(the frequency it is most natural at)
edit- i have had a few drinks by this point... sorry if i let you down brad
