Use these low-profile metal waffle-style grilles to protect your subwoofer. Important Note: Each grille requires one pack of clamps (not included, see "Accessories").
Way undersized for the 8" sub I purchased. I have to return these and get a 10".
Cons: too small
Good price for a decent product
Pros: Price, material
Seems well built for a grille but measure your woofer first because it did not fit over my old school Kicker Round Solobaric 15"
Pros: Solid build, decent price
Cons: Won't fit all 15" subs
I bought these inexpensive grilles primarily to protect my speakers from puncture although they will not be seen they will protect the Real product that which they were purchased to protect .
Pros: setup easy
Cons: need to purchase spacers separately
Good sturdy speaker grilles. Exactly as they are portrayed. Rubber ring does a good job of acting as a dampener and can be removed if needed.
Pros: Look good. Are a whole lot better than plastic!
Cons: Could stand to be deeper. I bought 12" hoping I could reduce the head height on the 10" speakers in my cabinet. These grills would not give the 10" enough room for full travel when mounted directly to the enclosure. I had to raise them anyway. Might as well have bought the same size as the speakers and mounted them on top.
Perfect product, excellent quality
It does what it's supposed to do -universal grill.
Pros: Can easily be modified for fitment.
Cons: Cheap metal, easily bent.
Pros: works great
Looks Great and Works Universally as Good as It Looka!
Pros: Mounts For A Perfect Front Mount Finish.
Purchased these for a specific application. I had to modify the whole installation because I'm too impatient to send them back and wait on something that would work more easily...
Cons: Not deep enough for most subs today.
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
Heavy duty grill. Allows me to still throw my riding gear and other stuff on top of speaker box (floor mounted).
Pros: Heavy duty
Perfect fit. I was initially concerned about the fit of these grills. I purchased them to fit over my pair of 12" Memphis Audio subs encased in a previously purchased box. The product was exactly as ordered.
Pros: Friendly service, quick delivery (free too), decent price.
Nice sturdy grills for use in a sub enclosure. Well made and look great mounted in the Focus.
Pros: Sturdy, nice looking
good product for price, looks great. itdoes havesomebendto it
Perfect to keep your subs safe.
Pros: Fits perfect
love these grills but they will not work on kenwood 12's.woofers have changed so much since these were made,they need to be about 1 1/2 inch deeper and would work on almost any woofer.
sweet!!! protection where you need it.With all the in and outs, good speaker saver.
Pros: Easy install.. All around protection.
Cons: does not include hardware...
This grille and hold downs made it supper easy to cover my 12inch subwoffer in my custom box.
Pros: They are metal faces so they will protect and last.
Cons: No cons
satisfied with the grills
Pros: everything that is advertised
Very thick and sturdy
Pros: Great protection
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.
Pros: Don't know
Cons: Didn't fit. Big, ugly mounting brackets
This grille is a good value, but I wish the price included the mounting hardware, so that was an unexpected cost. Other than that though it serves its purpose and I plan to get another.
Pros: Cheap, functional
Cons: Does not include hardware
Easy to install, very sturdy, and cane with a rubber surround. Installed in minutes and no longer needed to worry about passengers kicking a hole in my new sub.
Pros: Very sturdy, it's black, it's cheap (price)
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
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!
Sturdy and attractive protection for your subwoofer. Really gives your enclosure a nice finished look. Excellent price and rapid shipping.
Very fast shipment, well packaged. exactly what I expected.
Pros: A simple grill cover that gets done what it was intended to do.
Cons: you must figure a way to mount if you do not want the clips to show.
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.
Pros: thanks for your info....
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.
Product is well made and serves it's intended purpose well.
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.
regular grill works great, should of came with mounting clamps instead of buying separate
Pros: construction is good
Cons: should of come with clips
Not a bad grille, but not deep enough to fit over a high power sub.
I used this grill to protect a 15 in. bass guitar speaker in a home-made cabinet. Fit perfectly and looks good too.
Cons: Would rather have the speaker screws hold in place, but the brackets do the job.
I PURCHASED A JBL GTO804 8" SUB WOOFER FOR MY BOAT AND ALSO PURCHASED A 125G08 8" SPEAKER GRILL AFTER CONSTRUCTING THE PANEL TO INSTALL INTO THE BOAT I OPENED THE PACKAGE OF THE GRILL AND FOUND IT SITS ON TOP OF THE SPEAKER. I KNOW THIS ISN'T THE WAY IT WAS INTENDED TO BE USED SO I GUESS I HAVE TO SEND IT BACK, CAUSE IT DOESN'T FIT. THE ONLY THING I'M UPSET ABOUT IS IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY AN ADVISOR, ALOT HE KNOWS
As advertised. They are not for looks, they for protecting your investment.
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.
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.
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.
I purchased these grilles for my Intinity 1052Ws and they fit like a charm. The material is crazy strong and I never have to worry about my wife throwing junk in the trunk busting my speakers any more.
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.
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.
These are nice grills but are exactly the same size as the Polk Audio DB840, I thought they would fit over the speaker. I purchased the clips sold here and they are pretty huge, did not like them either. Do not recommend this product for an 8" sub
I callled to confirm that these grilles would fit my Infinity 1250w subwoofer. It doesn't. The customer service guy assured me it would. Yeah it's sturdy and all, but if it don't fit, what's the use.
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.
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.
Mounting: The grille sits on top of the subwoofer's frame and is held in place with the 125G727KIT top mount clamps (required and sold separately).

picked this to protect the front of my polk speaker [ Tim May 08, 2016 ]
I ordered this item to go over my subwoofer and protect it from damage as it will be in the trunk of my car. [ Jacob Apr 30, 2016 ]
Needed to protect the subwoofer from items in trunk. [ Johnathan Jan 24, 2016 ]
Because, as careful as you want to be, stuff in the trunk goes through speaker cones rather easily. And subs with holes in them don't sound as good. [ Rhett Dec 14, 2015 ]
I put mine on polk sub it fit great. I dont know about kicker. [ ROGER Mar 07, 2015 ]
I'm not sure, but the grilles fit over my 10" Alpines. [ CLINTON Mar 07, 2015 ]
Yea as long as its a 10" subwoofer. ..ask ur saleman if thats a good choice they r great at what they do [ CHAD E Mar 06, 2015 ]
The frame on the grill is too small. It may pass on it it the hanger will be sticking up and look like a mess. Hope this help [ TERRY Mar 06, 2015 ]
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 ]
