Sounds good, actually really good on the he400.
Yes, you noticed it quickly. It really appears we have a lot of parallel tastes with music. I love Tom. Excellent gravelly voice (soaked in cigarette butts and bourbon for over 40 years) and the guy dresses like he buys his pants, sport coats and hats at the Salvation Army. Not that I have anything against his appraoch, but it is his character and how he is able to be original with his music. Here certainly seems like he bucks the trend where most popular music artists try to be one thing or another. Tom Waits, meanwhile, is just who he is and doesn't really to be one who cares what people think of him. His originality is tops in my book.

I believe the actual spray would be presented in a glossy finish. However, once you were able to have applied sufficient coats for the color and hammered appearance, a couple of coats of clear matte could easily be achieved to finish them off as you've pointed out.
I think I'm ready for some change on the HE-400s, which prompted me to pull out the colors of my old speakers. Finding time to be able to do it, and correctly, would be next item, which is in short supply at the moment.
