Our take on the JL Audio SGR-12TW3

JL Audio's acclaimed engineering doesn't stop with their legendary subwoofers and enclosures. This steel-mesh grille fits over a 12" TW3 sub, adding a clean, refined look. It protects your sub from accidental damage, yet gives its surround proper clearance for pumping out great-sounding bass. Warranty: 1 year.

Installation was a bit of a PITA on my 12TW-3 but I eventually got it on. Once it was on its very secure. Thin gauge metal should hold up to most normal bumps from loose items in the trunk. After spending $300 on a sub whats a little bit more money?

Sleek and clean grill provide great protection.

Gregory from San Francisco, CA on 5/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sleek and clean grill to protect your subwoofers. The perforations are just bug enough to still be able to see the big JL logo on these woofers. They were a tight fit on mine which means there is no change of them sliding off, but getting them off if i wanted to will be a challenge. No tools needed and installation can be done without removing the woofers or any screws!

Pros: Sleek and pleasant design. Tight tool-less fit. Perforations small enough to protect and large enough to see logo.

Cons: Removal is very difficult (easy to damage). Wish they came with badges.

necessary to protect your investment

Pros: protects sub

Cons: was a little finicky to install

Does its job

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does its job. Protects the speaker. Loses a star because one of the two I got do not like to stay on. When the sub hits, the grille vibrates off. I asked a tech about it and was told to wrap some electrical tape around the outside of it to be a tighter fit. The other one stays on just fine though so may just be a fluke from the manufacture. Wish it would stay in place like it should but no big deal to use some tape since its behind a seat.

Pros: Protects as desinged

Cons: Some vibrate off

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plan for this to add about 1" of depth for your installation. Quality product and does what it's intended to do, which is protect the sub cone. It simply push/press fits. It is a light-gauge metal and will not stand up to any significant weight or pressure. In my case, the install is behind my rear seat in a crew cab truck and seat contact has deformed it a bit. That's just fine with me - I bought it to prevent the woofer body from contacting the seat when the woofer was flexing. If appearance is important to you - your woofer is in a visible install location - be sure you have some room for the screen because it will dent. This item also would be easily paintable to match your scheme, if you preferred to go that route.

2 questions already asked

Once it's installed properly it's not coming off. You have to gently bend it to fit on the speaker as the fit is tight. Go slow and be patient. I recommend looking for a you tube video so you can see. Overall I like the product. Typical JL quality. [ JONATHAN E  Apr 26, 2017 ]
Once it is on, it is hard to get off. It's not going anywhere without help. The grill slides into a channel around the outside of the subwoofer surround. [ JASON  Apr 26, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. The dimensions of the grill are 11.71" across and 1.71" high. Hope that helps. [ Kenny  Sep 10, 2016 ]  Staff
