Our take on the JL Audio SGRU-12

The quality engineering job by JL Audio doesn't stop with their legendary subwoofers and enclosures. This steel-mesh grille fits over 12" WX, WXv2, W0v2, W0v3, W1v2, W1v3, and W3v3 subs, adding a clean, refined look. It protects the subs from accidental damage, yet gives the surrounds proper clearance for pumping out great-sounding bass. Warranty: 1 year.

Fit as described and very well made. I would recommend this product to anyone who wishes to protect their investment.

Joey from Salt Lake City, UT on 5/29/2017

They look good and they are very tough. I've had one of these on a 13.5" sub in an SUV for over 2 years. The sub was face up and it was always getting stuff tossed on top of it. It has never dented or failed. When it came time to buy more subs I knew they had to be JL Audio subs and grills. I'm building a home theater riser with some subs in it so I knew I'd get this grill for those. I don't want anyone to step through my subwoofers that are sitting on top of it. It shouldn't happen because the home theater seating will being over the top of the subs, but it's more of a just-in-case.

Pros: Rigid and clean looking.

Cons: None

I would defiantly suggest getting these do worth it! I wish it wouldn't have taken getting a whole in my speaker before I decided to get them! Best decision ever they just pop on no tools needed!

Extreme quality, fits like a glove. Protect your investment

Pros: Quality, fitment

Cons: A Little Pricey

Very nice grille

YB from Iowa on 4/9/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I ordered 2 of these I thought they were kind of expensive for subwoofer covers. My sub are in the trunk and rear facing so I reluctantly ordered them. I can say they are worth every penny. They are very solid, fit exact and look great. I have no doubt they protect my investment and most likely outlast the subs they protect.

Pros: Genuine JL Audio Product, Exact fit, Still have access to the screws if you would need to pull a sub out

Cons: none

Needed protection

Necessary protection for your JL Audio subs

Pros: Looks great and protects your subs

Cons: None

Strong tight bass

B Young from Stephens city, VA on 8/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had an older 10" MTX in my single cab GMC and I upgraded to the 2ohm 12" JL. I built a 1.1 cubic foot sealed box. Unbeliveble is all I can say. I am putting about 200 watts to it and it sound good at any volume. Hard hitting tight bass.

Never have to worry about my precious jl sub tumbling to the other side of my trunk and getting punctured when I'm doing donuts in my Grand Marquis. Easy to install and a nice tight fit.



Good Looking Protection

Pros: Well made,look cool! Perfect fit!

Cons: NONE

Cheap Protection

Greg from Glendale, CA on 3/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a great piece to add on to your subwoofer. Unfortunately, I had to purchase a second sub because the first one was punctured by a steering wheel lock that had somehow loosened itself from its location and found it's way to the sub. So for the next subwoofer I purchased, I made sure I also got this grille to protect it. It looks of high quality and it's sturdy. I don't think anything is going to be going through. Ever. The best part is, I don't notice a difference in sound, just sad that the JL logo on my sub is somewhat harder to see. lol

Pros: Cheap Good build quality Attaches to the sub well

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I use my car as a truck some times so this is perfect for my needs but if you don't really use your trunk for anything but your system it's probably overkill.

Pros: Very functional maximum protection

Cons: Diminishes the cool look of the naked subwoofer

bass lover from New Jersey on 5/28/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to protect my JL Audio 12" sub. My sub sits behind the 3rd row of my Armada where we put luggage, a stroller, grocery bags, etc. This grill cover is solid and protective. This is my 2nd JL subwoofer and every time I get the grill covers. Worth every penny to protect your investment. Plust it gives the sub a clean finished look.

Pros: Solid and protective. Clean finished look.

Cons: A little pricy, but its worth it to protect your investment.

Factory custom grill for the JL W3V3

Pros: Sturdy, Looks nice. Can still access screws

Cons: Litle hard to push into place. Which isnt really a bad thing. Since you dont want it falling off.

Must-Have Addition for your Sub

TKD-KING from Vancouver, BC on 8/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This will be a short review because a cover to protect your sub is a no-brainer. I paired this up with the PowerWedge 12" (PWM112-JXWXv2 [See my review]). Like others have said, it fits right in, no tools required, and adds to the clean, sharp look of the PowerWedge's. I knew I wanted a cover, and I'm SO happy JL put this together so I didn't have to screw anything into the face of my box. Very durable, and for $20, I don't see why anyone wouldn't pick one up...

Pros: Affordable, durable and simple to install (5-seconds max)

Cons: None


Accident Prone from HI on 3/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very solid construction, I'm pretty sure I could swing a hammer at it without damaging my sub. Installation took 3 seconds, it clicked right in with no drama. Cheapest insurance you can buy.

Pros: Easy install, super strong build quality, cheap.

Cons: Only works for the one kind of sub!

A must have

Awesome, they look like they are screwed in but all I had to do was push them in...truly awesome!



Must have item for your 12W3

Jonathan from Wailuku, HI on 11/10/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a must have item if you have a 12W3 in your trunk and you throw stuff in there. Quality construction, press fit, professional look and above all; protects the sub from damage from strollers, boxes, and the bi-monthly Costco trip. Worth the $$$.

Thanks for your question. Yes this is the optional grille that is for that unit, so yes it will fit. Hope that helps. [ Kenny  Mar 11, 2017 ]  Staff
Per the product description: "This steel-mesh grille fits over 12" WX, WXv2, W0v2, W0v3, W1v2, W1v3, and W3v3 subs..." This grill is NOT a universal product for any 12" sub. Its nominal 12" and extends out about 1" from the mounting bezel above the center of the sub. It seats directly into the subwoofer mounting bezel. [ John  Sep 17, 2016 ]

it it sold each. [ THOMAS  Oct 20, 2014 ]
It is just one grill [ Ricky  Oct 20, 2014 ]
I only needed 1 cover so that's all I received. [ Glenard  Oct 20, 2014 ]
They are single sub covers [ SAVINA  Oct 20, 2014 ]
I don't own any mtx nor does anyone else I know so i haven't been able to double check that for you. Good luck. [ Jason  Feb 12, 2014 ]
No This grill fits exactly into the jl sub, It was manufactured as a JL only. Sorry [ daniel  Jan 19, 2014 ]
Samuel, I recommend you talk to one of the experts at Crutchfield. Those guys are awesome. I would not buy any car audio equipment without talking to them first. Also, Crutchfield prices are unbeatable. I purchased this item recently and it fit perfect. [ WILLIAM  Jan 19, 2014 ]
No, these fit in a groove that JL made on the woofer rim. Will not fit other brands. [ RAYMOND  Jan 19, 2014 ]
Probably not. The speaker is designed with a thin channel around the outer diameter and the grill has a formed flange that fits snugly into the channel with no fasteners. The fit is very precise and the end result is a very clean look, but without the special channel there is no way to attach the grill. [ Alex  Jan 19, 2014 ]
I'm not exactly sure. I know that a jl grill will fit on a jbl sub so I'm thinking that they do. I think if it's similar it should but not 100% sure u can always call crutchfield and they are very helpful with everything. They are awesome if ur a customer they automatically know who they are talking to by ur phone. Their customer service is #1 hands down [ SAVINA  Jan 19, 2014 ]
It's made to fit in the groove between the removable screw ring and the cone of sub. Unless that sub has same dimensions as the JL and has the removable ring. I'd say no. [ CHRIS  Jan 19, 2014 ]
i wouldn't think so. The fit is perfect for the JL's that I have, but they are a very tight fit. I doubt that they will fit anything else. [ SEAN  Jan 19, 2014 ]
