Our take on the JL Audio SGR-8W3v3/W1v2

by Dominic Devito
JL Audio

The quality engineering job by JL Audio doesn't stop with their legendary subwoofers and enclosures. This steel-mesh grille fits over 8" W3v3 and W1v2 subs, adding a clean, refined look. It protects the subs from accidental damage, yet gives the surrounds proper clearance for pumping out great-sounding bass. Warranty: 1 year.

JL Audio bliss!

This is the perfect speaker for the factory enclosure in a JK Wrangler. It fits perfect, and sounds amazing! If you want some serious bass, you have to get this sub! You will need a good amp to drive it though.
tremendous bass if given the right power, shallow mount

installation must

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Three stars because they'll dent too easily imo. When installing these you must remove the mounting ring from speaker, place grill over speaker, then slide the mounting ring over grill and screw it down. Don't try to force it in with ring still screwed down....
Not a terrible price
Seat backs, bottoms...etc will dent these easily. Be careful

An attractive, inexpensive solution to protect the JL Audio sub in my Jeep from getting poked or bumped by anything rolling around in my cargo area. What makes it even better was the simple installation- I had already installed the sub so I was afraid I would have to take it out and drill new holes to remount the sub with the grille attached, but the grille's lip simply presses in between the plastic trim and the outer edge of the speaker. No tools needed, and with a good solid push of your palm around the edges, it's on there super tight.

does not stay on

Written By Juan D, Overseas on Tuesday, November 30, 2010
I have this grille on a JL Audio sub. I have the sub mounted against my car and it never
on. The base alone will knock this thing off everytime. It is made of strong material and
the only way it would work is if the sub was placed in a box on its back. i dont recomend

Another great product from JL.A. Perfect fit, maximum protection. I'm more relaxed because my 2 yr old daughter cannot damage the speakers anymore. Thanks Eddie, thanks Crutchfield. Only the best!!
