I have two paint stores in town that I go to for supplies. Both can scan for color, but I think you still need to know if it's matt, eggshell, semi or gloss.
My preference is to just pick up paint from the jobsite when it's available and then you know it's the right stuff.
For those of you thinking about painting speakers but intimidated by the cost or complexity of a spray system, most paint stores can custom match paint and then put it in a spray can for you. This is a good way to good started.
Cost varies, but you'll usually have to purchase a quart of paint and then pay the fee to have it put in the can (around $15 here). The end result is a $30-$40 can of paint that matches. If you can get paint from the client, the paint stores will put this in a can for you too.
I agree- if paint can be gotten from the site and it hasn't been altered,
that's best because it's already being used.
Ever used an HVLP conversion gun with a compressor? I have a Harbor Freight gun and shot my kitchen cabinets with it, using Minwax Poly- that turned out great but I haven't tried it with interior latex, enamel, lacquer or alkyd.
