The quality engineering job by JL Audio doesn't stop with their legendary subwoofers and enclosures. This steel-mesh grille fits over 8" W3v3, W1v2, and W1v3 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.
Average Customer Review(s):
It has performed very well.
Pros: Good consistant sound quality that only JL can produce.
Cons: Should have purchased the 10" instead of the 8"
This is the perfect speaker for the factory enclosure in a JK Wrangler. It fits perfect, and sounds amazing! If you want some serious bass, you have to get this sub! You will need a good amp to drive it though.
Pros: tremendous bass if given the right power, shallow mount
Three stars because they'll dent too easily imo. When installing these you must remove the mounting ring from speaker, place grill over speaker, then slide the mounting ring over grill and screw it down. Don't try to force it in with ring still screwed down....
Pros: Not a terrible price
Cons: Seat backs, bottoms...etc will dent these easily. Be careful
An attractive, inexpensive solution to protect the JL Audio sub in my Jeep from getting poked or bumped by anything rolling around in my cargo area. What makes it even better was the simple installation- I had already installed the sub so I was afraid I would have to take it out and drill new holes to remount the sub with the grille attached, but the grille's lip simply presses in between the plastic trim and the outer edge of the speaker. No tools needed, and with a good solid push of your palm around the edges, it's on there super tight.
I have this grille on a JL Audio sub. I have the sub mounted against my car and it never stays on. The base alone will knock this thing off everytime. It is made of strong material and the only way it would work is if the sub was placed in a box on its back. i dont recomend it.
Another great product from JL.A. Perfect fit, maximum protection. I'm more relaxed because my 2 yr old daughter cannot damage the speakers anymore. Thanks Eddie, thanks Crutchfield. Only the best!!
