Awesome product. Looks great and built strong
This is a great addition to my Kicker 8" subwoofer. It's sturdy enough to protect it from damage in its under seat location. I'm very pleased with it.
Pros: Sturdy, great fit and look.
Its a speaker grill
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
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
Seemed kinda cheesy at first, but when you secure it it's a pretty nice grill, seems sturdy enough
They fit perfect and match up to kickers subs nicely.
Pros: Protects your speakers.
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
Overview: The GR80 is a round grille, specifically designed for the 8" Kicker Comp, CompVR, CompVT, CompVX, and Solo Classic subwoofers.
Construction: This 8-spoke grille is made of gray plastic. It should be mounted with eight pan-head screws (not flat-head).

Protect the new subwoofer and put finishing touch on the install [ Chad Mar 03, 2016 ]
to protect subwoofer [ Dennis Dec 17, 2015 ]
Use the mounting screws you received with your kicker 10in sub. The mounting bracket are in the same locating as the holes for the sub. [ PAUL A Sep 17, 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 ]
