Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was concerned that the sub could make contact with grill on heavy listening levels, those concerns are no more the grill attaches simply and secure does not shake loose. Very happy with install and material quality now if anything were to fall towards sub it will not cause damage when playing and not realize something is pressed against sub.

Very nice look no complaints to be mentioned all positive this is my first grill since the sub is in a cargo area with who knows what else.

Pros: Does Not shake loose even under heavy listening Grill material will not allow small objects to get caught near moving cone

Cons: Can't find any yet

Well made and good value

Was originally gonna go with a universal grille for my Type S sub. Decided to bite the bullet and get one that would fit correctly, and this one is great! Easy install, does not rattle at all, and is a full coverage grille so no chance of anything tearing my cone.

Pros: Full coverage No rattling

Cons: Price People with Type S subs will probably put the Type R badge on lol

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Do not like at all. the flimsy cheap plastic brackets wont alow you to clamp down enough force on the sub

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: The brackets should have been made out of metal

Crutchfield response on Wednesday, February 04, 2015 We want to clarify that the brackets referred to in this review are the "grille locks" that are used to secure the metal mesh grille to the subwoofer's frame. They are made of a heavy-duty plastic and normally work fine.

Super easy to install and look great!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these for my SWR1042D Alpine Type R's. The grill's fit like a glove and look absolutely incredible. It was very easy to install and comes with all necessary hardware for the install. Each speaker took about 10 minutes with a regular screw driver. If you have a drill, cut that time in half.

Pros: Easy to install Look great Clear and complete directions

Cons: None.

Although it's not labeled, this actually fits E-Type subwoofers. it just doesn't come with a sticker. it only comes with a S & R-Type stickers.

Crutchfield response on Monday, June 16, 2014 That sounds reasonable. Alpine only lists Type R and Type S as being compatible because they no longer make Type E. And we don't have any Type E subs lying around, so we can't test the fit to be sure.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This grille is beautiful and fits my Alpine SWR-1043D like a glove. 5/5 for craftsmanship and 3/5 for price, though that's Alpine's fault and not Crutchfield's.

Pros: It protects my sub from groceries and such rolling around in the trunk. This looks better than the cheap waffle grilles and I know the high excursion depth of the sub won't hit the grille because it's from the manufacturer.

Cons: High price, and the stickers are silly. It's just a 10" and I don't want it getting stolen.
