i'd pull it off, its not that hard.
i used $3 paint from bunnings, matt black.
came up fantastic.

I simply cleaned everything properly, gave it 2 coats and let it dry.
reinstalled and its been fine, no clear coat.

For hard plastics like surrounds: Clean the parts very well with warm soapy water, rinse and dry, then apply a couple of thin coats of plastic primer. The finishing paint is up to you but the Holts Dupli-Color range of spray cans (which includes Plastic Trim Primer) can be found at most auto stores and will do the job well. If you wish you can overcoat with clear.
My opinion only, but gloss finishes on parts that shouldn't be shiny looks tacky. So if you can, go for a satin finish.
