This black steel mesh grille fits the subwoofer perfectly and mounts using the screw holes already in place on the subwoofer. The included Alpine Type-R and Type-S logos are an excellent finishing touch for your installation. Warranty: 1 year.

E-Series

Written By Auto, Fayetteville, NC on Tuesday, June 10, 2014
 
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.

Does what it says.

Written By Mike D, Washington, DC on Monday, April 02, 2012
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.

1 question already asked

What is the overall diameter of the sub grille and the length of the edges if any? Also is the grille a press fit or mounted with screws? [ David  Apr 13, 2014 ]
4 answers
  • The outer diameter of the grill ring is 10 13/16". The inner diameter is 8 3/4". It is a black, rubber piece which replaces the rubber ring on the sub. This ring pushes onto adapter hooks which come with the kit and is what holds the grille in place so you could consider the grille as press fit. Hope this helps. [ EDWARD G   Apr 15, 2014 ]
  • The grill gets screwed down with when you mount the subwoofer. The grill fits within the the subwoofers diameter. [ ERIC   Apr 14, 2014 ]

  • the grill screws on and then the rubber ring is press fit into it, the rubber is a perfect fit with the OD of the speakers rubber lip [ MATHEW   Apr 14, 2014 ]
