Just what I needed

Written By Greg P, Rockford, IL on Saturday, June 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was scared to death after having my new sub woofer and amp package installed in the car. The enclosure I'd selected had nothing to protect the speaker. The guys at the shop said that's the way most people do it because they want to show off their equipment. Not me. It's in the trunk of a car that gets used a lot. Without a cover I'd surely stick a fishing pole or rifle barrel through my expensive speaker.

It fit my kicker 12" sub just fine. Just don't forget to order the clips to screw it on!
Pros:
Easy to install
Cons:
None

Written By JohnH, Ashburn, VA on Monday, December 23, 2013
 
Purchased this as the only one they had available for my JBL GTO804. Unfortunately, it was too small so it didn't fit over the sub. And even if it did, the mounting brackets were obnoxiously huge and ugly.

Didn't fit. Big, ugly mounting brackets

Good quality but dosen't fit!

Written By Walter, N. Charleston, SC on Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These grills are of good quality and offer good protection, but be warned!!!! They DO NOT fit on the Pioneer TS-W254R or any of the champion series subs. My problem is they simply sat on top and were almost 1/4 to small in diameter! Don't get me wrong, the grill its self is great, but the universal fit was kinda misleading and a waste of money since its cost half of what i paid to return it.
Pros:
Good Quality Nice finish
Cons:
Didn't fit

More protection than the price implies.

Written By Mark D, Auburn GA on Monday, October 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Don't tell Crutchfield or the maker I said this but these grills are worth more than what I paid for them if you are buying them for protection. They are very strong. Not strong enough to hold up me 6'1" 250#, but plenty strong enough to protect your high priced subs from life's daily hazards. If you want style & protection come up with a cool paint scheme & have at it. If you goof it up, get out the black & start over.
Pros:
Well made, strong & best of all A Bargain!

Should have bought spacers

Written By S. Kusen, Brookhaven, PA on Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As other reviewers suggested and even the product page itself, I should have purchased the spacers. I put this on the Rockford Fosgate Prime R1L-1X10 enclosure, and naturally it was raised up. Instead of waiting for spacers I piled two on the top left of the sub and two on the bottom right to hold it in place, and so far it's holding. Just put it on to naturally protect my sub, so it's getting the job done.
Pros:
Good grill
Cons:
Should just come packaged with spacers, they would be cheap enough to toss in or even charge another $1 on the product to include them.

10" Waffle Style Speaker Grilles

Written By Dan C, Lacey, WA on Monday, May 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Although these grills are quite cheap, they are EXCELLENT quality. I was looking for grilles to protect my subs, not really to look great. They fill that role perfectly. As my subs are mounted under the back seat of my '08 Dodge 2500, I was worried about the seat pressing down onto the speakers when people sat in the seat. The seat still flexes like it always has, but the grilles are rock solid. You could literally sit on the grille by itself and it wouldn't bend. Like I said, great quality, especially for the price. The only issue I can see is if you have a really large rubber surround on your woofer. In that case, you might run into clearance issues, especially with a top-mount setup (for the record, both of mine are top-mount and I had no issues). But with Crutchfield's return policy, you can't go wrong.
Pros:
Super heavy gauge steel. Fits 10" Polk Dxi sub perfectly. Easy to install.
Cons:
May have clearance issues with SOME top-mount setups.

Okay Speaker Grilles

Written By CB, Las Vegas, NV on Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great sturdy Grilles, they will protect your speakers. The only issue I had, was on one of my cars, the speaker stuck out further than the grille clamps would allow. Although I was able to still use them, I got a dowel and cut it to length, about 1/3 inch long for each grille clamp and was able to put a screw through the clamp, then dowel and then into the speaker box.
Pros:
Sturdy and look good
Cons:
had to make a custom mounting surface to use on one speaker box. But still looks and works great.

Fits Infinity 1260W

Written By JakeR, SD on Sunday, April 17, 2011
 
I purchased one of these grilles (12") for my Infinity 1260W 12" subwoofer. It
fits almost perfectly. It is a little small but if you are willing to see 1/16"
of the speaker's mount all the way around then it is perfect for you.

These didn't work out for an Alpine SWR-1243D

Written By Phong, Washington on Sunday, February 27, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unfortunately these Grille didn't work out for an Alpine SWR-1243D. These Grille will sit on top of the subwoofer and if you want them to stay on, you'll probably gonna have to drill holes through the grilles. Because these sit right on the subwoofer, the clamps that came with it definitely will not work because you won't be able to mount the clamps and drill them into your box. I ended up having to buy one that was made by Alpine. Judging by the provided clamps, my guess is that these grille are meant for a much smaller subwoofers where these grille do not make any contact with the subwoofer.

Grill Mount info

Written By Darren, Bedford, IN on Saturday, February 20, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very strong, heavy duty. however watch out for the required mounting brackets, if the grill is
mounted flush on the box, they won't work. I suspect the grills are to mount on top of the
speaker frame but note: I bought 10" to cover an 8" sub that is top mounted. If it was
mounted on top of the sub as I think was intended, they would clamp down but I think it
would interfere with the surround of the driver even though mine is not a "long excursion"
woofer. Measurements would be nice for reference since most apps will be custom made.
I'll be sending the brackets back so no big deal, that's part of customizing isn't it. I designed
a better way to mount them and am glad it worked out that way.

Check fit before purchasing

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this grille for my Infinity Kappa (10") 104.7 sub and it doesn't fit at all. It's not big enough or deep enough for a top mounted installation.
Possibly the manufacturer intended it for an internally mounted sub. Not an option for me. The grille is very sturdy and will definitely to the job so
long as it fits.

Fine Product but Beware of the Fitment

Written By Murphy, San Diego on Wednesday, November 26, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The grille is sturdy and looks fine but was not wide enough or tall enough for the 12" RF Punch Stage 2 Sub. Crutchfield can not possibly know every fitment but are more than happy to take them back postage paid on their side. It's not a lot of money but just make sure you tell the rest of us if they don't fit and what the speaker was.

The grilles are heavier than they look and will protect your subs very well. Once I had my enclosures finished they look professional. By using these grilles they remind me of professional equipment that can cranked up to 11 on a scale of 1 - 10 and then when done, throw in the truck and be off to your next gig.

Always Use Protection

Written By Brahda808, Hawaii on Wednesday, October 19, 2005
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If your subs don't come with grills or they come with plastic grills, get these metal ones. Especially if you use the area where your subs are located like the trunk. These grills are strong and will protect your investment no matter what you throw in the trunk. They are kind of ugly, but well worth the protection.

Want to protect your investment? This is the only way to go. Sure the other grills may look cool, but will they stand the test when little brother tosses something in the direction of your system. Perhaps your boogie board gets recklessly thrown in? Why take the chance? They can be easily removed when you just want to show your system.

1 question already asked

Due to the depth of this grill and the shape of my subwoofer (MTX 12"), the woofer would bang against the grill if i simply mounted the grill and turned on music. I need to space this grill away from the subwoofer cone (actually, away from the rubber ring around the cone). Any suggestions? [ Ryan  Jan 11, 2014 ]
5 answers
  • Thanks for the reply - I ended up resolving this with a similar method. [ Ryan   Jan 24, 2014 ]
  • I purchased a spacer (see Atrend, google it) then modified the spacer with a dremel to fit my grille. This was for a 10 inch sub. You may be able to locate the same from the above company fore a 12" sub. Mine enabled me to use a grille to protect a down firing Infinity sub woofer. [ Mark   Jan 24, 2014 ]
  • There are grills made for subs with a high cone surround such as Polk, Kicker, etc. Either use something like that, or make a spacer. You could either make a MDF trim ring that goes around the outside of the sub and then mount the grill to that. In the past, I have also made a double front on boxes with the sub being mounted to the inner layer and grill cloth, regular grills, or nothing at all. It looks nice recessed like that. [ Bambihunter71   Jan 16, 2014 ]
  • Add to the rubber ring with foam or rubber from lowes and see what happens or mount the box the speaker is in to a location so it doesn't move and leave the grill off. [ BRIAN A   Jan 13, 2014 ]
  • We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 13, 2014 ]
