These black plastic clamps secure grilles to speakers that are front-mounted.
Average Customer Review(s):
Worked well with my 12" grille cover
Good strong clamps
Pros: Good Fit
Quality parts at a cheap price!
Work good. They should come with spacers that you could use if your Speakers outside ring is thicker than these give clearance for. That happened with my nvx 12"'s! But they look nice and match the speaker grilles Crutchfield sells! I think these should Be included with speaker grilles though!
Pros: Look good easy to install match speaker Grilles nicely
Cons: Should have spacers for different clearances.
Nice clamps, but they should have come with some spacers. I had to custom make my own so I could use to mount grille over my sub. I needed 1/4" spacer in my case.
Pros: Look nice and fit grille well.
Cons: Should have come with spacers to use on different styles and brands of speakers.
They do their job like they should. Grill is still where I mounted it.
Pros: They work.
Cons: Added plastic spacers and longer screws would be a nice compliment to them.
just right, perfect for the job and price
While they do hold the speaker grill down, you may have to use some shims to depending on your application. not a deal breaker, just something to be aware of.
Pros: Worked as advertised.
Cons: Screw heads are a bit small. I added some washers from my parts bin for a more secure fit.
Good product, designed for corresponding grille
Pros: As described, works exactly with grille
Cons: None found
These worked great for me to add a grille on the JBL 12: sub cabinet.
Pros: Plastic allowed me to modify them slightly to work in my environment and they look nice.
Got what I paid for.
Pros: They are made of quality construction and are a universal fit.
Cons: Had to use spacers to mount on speakers.
These clamps are exactly what they are intended for. I used them in the rear deck of my 2013 Dodge Dart Limited. I installed an 8" sub and then cut a hole in the fabric of the rear deck cover. Then I placed the universal 8" sub grill that Crutchfield has and used these clamps to drill into the rear deck cover. They hold the grill in place just as they are intended.
Pros: Does what it is intended to do, holds down a speaker grill.
Cons: The clamps are a little on the big side and could be a little smaller but still gets the job done.
Had to replace some broken one's and these were far better made than the ones that were on them , satisfied with my purchase thanks
Pros: easy to install
They're clamps, what more is there to say? Really, though if you want to protect your speakers, grilles and clamps are the way to go. What else are you going to use?
Pros: They worked.
Cons: They mention might needing spacers, why don't they just include them? I have no clue what use or where to find 8 spacers that would have fit nicely under the clamps. Lucky for me they just reached, but really needed some spacers for a better fit.
Grill Clamps! Pretty much says it all. They look good and they do a good job of holding the grills in place.
Pros: Just as they appear on the web site. Look good and are flexible enough to be a little forgiving if the application is not spot on.
Cons: Slots are almost as wide as the screw heads. I had to add washers and of course I had to paint the washers to match the rest of the installation. Some black anodized washers to match the screws would be nice.
Perfect product, excellent quality
clamps worked great easy to install
Pros: easy install
Cons: should have came with grills
Pros: Works great
Exactly as ordered. There's not a whole lot of things to say about speaker clamps.
Pros: perfect fit, correct size, correct color. What else can I say? "Use Crutchfield!"
Clamps are plastic and not as heavy duty as I would have liked. Screws that came with them are barely wide enough to hold the clamps. Disappointed with their quality
Pros: Look good from a distance
Cons: Plastic, screw heads too small for slot, poor quality
easy to install, great choice for grilles
these are great
Great clamps, great price. Order arrived earlier than expected.
Clamps are polymer, screw heads are beveled. This means it's pretty easy to spread the clamp as you tighten the screw. A washer of the proper size should be incl. for each screw. Lucky for me I have plenty of washers. I even found 8 washers that were black.
Pros: Do the job after adding washers.
Cons: Maker should incl. 8 black washers of the appropriate size.
The clamps do a fine job of holding the grill in place. I did end up replacing the supplied wood screws with some different black pan head screws. Otherwise, the clams are great, although, I do think they should've come with the grills.
Excellent clips, but some people may need to make shims. In my case, I mounted grilles on top of my top-mount speakers. This raised the flange higher than recommended for the clips. As per the instructions, however, I was able to easily make myself some shims out of spare nuts. No issue, in my case.
Pros: Decent quality construction. Simple design. Very easy to install.
Cons: Plastic, could be over-torqued easily if not installed carefully. Shims may be necessary in some applications.
not the best clamp but they work, did not fit my JL w0v3 sub correctly not the clamps, its the sub
Pros: 4 clamps 4 screws
The brackets are good. But who chose these screws? The screws are for countersinking, so they spread the slot in the bracket. Stupid. They should be pan head or something with a flat underside. Why would a company as smart as Crutchfield make such a bad selection?
Pros: very good quality bracket for waffle speaker
Cons: ignorant choice of screw
When i got the clamps, they were to shallow for the sub and speaker. You would have to put spacers between the box and clamps and use longer screws. oh well, everything else was all good
These are OK clips I guess, I returned them because I didn't use the covers I ordered, the only thing about them that is difficult to tell by the picture is that they are pretty huge, I was expecting smaller metal clips or something. If you want the heavy built tough look these are for you.
When I was putting the hardware on the boxes I made I used silicone under the clamps that held the grilles in place. This way there would be no rattles. The clamps are plastic and after reading a review on the Crutchfield website, I took notice. One of the reviews I read said that they were kind of cheap and may break if you cranked them down too much. I have to agree. The holes in them to put your bolt/screw through is slotted. When you crank down on the fastener, (I used screws), the clamps wanted to open up a bit and "walk" away from the screw head. It wasn't really a problem for me but I just wanted to let you know before you bought them what you were getting. They would be better if they had a single round hole instead of a slotted hole for adjustment.
These clamps do the job by securing the grill down. I recommend using hand tools to tighten the clamps down. If you are used a power drill, set it to the lowest (weakest)setting. The clamps are made of soft plastic and you can easily over tighten the clamps and break them. Also, be careful of over tightening the screws, you can strip the holes in the wooden speaker box.
