Kicker GR80

Written By Steve, Belleview, FL on Monday, January 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very well built grille. Looks silly and flimsy at first but if you are using it with a Kicker sub that it is intended for, it's really great. Really brings a good look if you're sub(s) are visible, and once it is attachedsit's like a rock. It simply slides into the speaker's existing mounting holes and then you mount the speaker as you normally would. As for how tough are they, I have two speakers in a compact box behind my folding rear seat, pinned up against the cab wall, and the middle support for the seat slams into these grilles on a regular basis, they are what protects my cones from damage, and even with people in the seat against them, these grilles hold up.
Pros:
Strong, have a unique look
Cons:
If you're pressed for space they do add about two inches to your face depth

Kicker 8 inch Grill

Written By Chris, AR on Friday, October 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I expected these grills to be metal like most of kickers 10, 12 and 15 inch subwoofer grills. These are plastic and they have metal sleeves in each end for the screws to bolt thru and hold the subwoofer. They seemed flimsy to the touch and I was concerned but after I installed them they seem very sturdy and solid. The screws required have to be a pan head type of wood screw with a small head size #6 is what worked in mine and I had to buy some that were 2 inch long to properly mount my subs. I originally bought some #8 that were 1 1/4 long and it fit in the grill but wasn't long enough to go thru a piece of 3/4" MDF with the added depth of the grill probably about 1/2 inch it wouldn't tighten down in the box.
Pros:
Protection, looks, strength and price
Cons:
Made of plastic unlike other kicker grills. Screws should be included

Nice grille

Written By Gene, Denver on Thursday, July 19, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I thought these were going to be cheesy because they seemed flexible and plastic when I opened the box. After I screwed them in they are very durable and because they are plastic they will work great in the boat.
Pros:
Plastic so no rust, have an opening in the center to display the Kicker Logo. Perfect fit.
Cons:
Maybe just a tad expensive

What size screws do I need to mount this item? Where can I get them? [ Nesper  Sep 11, 2014 ]

  • Thank you!! [ Nesper   Sep 14, 2014 ]
  • I just used inch and a quarter black sheet rock screws...you can get them at any hardware store...Home Depot, lowes [ ERIC   Sep 12, 2014 ]
  • I used the same screws I used to hold down the sub. They where just normal black wood screws. I have a Image Dynamic sub and this lined up perfect. To really make it work correctly tho, it needs a button head screw. [ Marcus   Sep 12, 2014 ]
