It works fine to protect your sub as long as small things don't go between the bars. Easy to mount.

These grills look very cool. They make your subs look mean. The only downside is that I've owned them for bout 8 months now but they're spotted up with rust now. I thought they were stainless steel but guess not. Also the screws that actually hold the grills together kept coming loose so I had to use some krazy glue to fix it. Don't think i'll be buying these again.

These are some strong and great grills. My car-club fam asked me where did i get them from but i forgot at the time. Thanx for reminding me SONIC. my best friend did know that they were universal because I have them covering my MTX 9500 subs. THEY ARE WHAT THEY SAY! I would buy a whole cratwe if I had a host of subs. For the price is AWSOME and to have them would be a shock and awe!!!

I have two of these over a pair of Alpine Type R's and all I can say is that if you want to protect your hard earned money then buy these.
They are well made and fit very nicely. They are not to bulky

this product is great, it fixed the issue with carrying things in my trunk without having to worry about things breaking through my subwoofer. The clearance is perfect and does not effect the sound at all. I recommend it to everybody that has the issue like when you go grocery shopping when you buy something. and you just can't risk putting anything in the trunk, or even near the subwoofer wherever it is. I used to have a problem that when I went grocery shopping I had to put everything in my backseat. That sucked! now I can do it no problem. highly recommended. and remember it beats buying new subwoofers.

Like I said looks good but didn't fit over my Rockford Fosgate P1 12in sub. I cut it half and it still looks good hoping the ends wont rust but even if it does it will still protect my sub so with a little work it will do. I'd give it a 3.5 but I feel a 4 is to much.

Make sure this fits the subwoofer you are buying it for, before ordering. I had to return mine because it wouldn't cover my sub when it had the decorative lip on it.

Otherwise, it was a strong, good-looking accessory.

I'm very pleased with the grill. The finish is decent, and it's sturdy enough. It did not come with mounting hardware to mount the grill to your enclosure, but four simple wood or drywall screws are easy enough to find. The only other thing that I suggest is apply some thread lock to the screws that attach each bar to the end plates. This should ensure they don't vibrate loose.

Overall, it's a fantastic value and better looking than any other grill I've found, especially the dated old waffle grills!

February 21, 2012 Works well with a bit of tweaking
Review by
V from Rio Rancho, NM
Overall

Bought this to help protect a 12" sub in a custom glass enclosure I have in the trunk. I sometimes carry a cooler back there and was concerned about it sliding and hitting the woofer. This grille is very heavy duty and protects it well while looking good. The only down side to the grille is that it does not appear to be precisely made. After buying I found others who mentioned the same thing. The arch of the mounting rails is not uniform. In other words, it is not straight so does not perfectly align with the outside circle of the speaker. I hope that makes sense. I tweaked it all I could, but still not even so I mounted it in such a way that it provided protection and was not obvious that the arch of the mount rails was crooked compared to the arch of the outside of the speaker circle. Maybe picky on my part as all that have seen the install are impressed with it so just mention while you are looking for options so you are aware of the possible issue. Overall I'd still purchase as I do not like the look of those weave type generic grilles on a sub and worried about their denting in if hit with something. This rail type grille has thick rails across and I don't have that same concern. Only rated design and ease of use lower due to this alignment issue and having to try and fiddle with it to get it closer.

Here is the thing. I don't see how these could "fall apart" on you like the previous review stated. They are rock solid. When you get them they may be loose. Mine where. Take a phillips head screwdriver and tighten it and make sure it is squared up then screw to your box over the sub. TaDa your done and they will last forever! I have mine behind the rear seat in my 99 Ford crewcab. The seat smashes the crap out of them to be able to lock back. Every time I pull the seat forward to get something they look brand new and no bending or anything. JUST BUY EM' ALREADY! :)

This product is extremely solid, and I feel safe putting my backpack/tripod/jackets into my trunk with this guarding my sub. Only thing is that when it arrives, the screws holding the individual bars together are loose, allowing the bars to swivel.

To fix this, I just put the bottom bar on a table, with the bracket side facing me. I then made the bars as parallel as a could, and hand tightened them to a "fairly tight-loose," so that I could do some final adjustments. Lined them up one last time, tightened everything down, and i've got a rockin' sub that will still slam, even if it gets slammed.

Very heavy, sturdy speaker grill. Quality construction, great chrome finish! Easy assembly, you would have to kick this thing or try very hard to bend or break this grill! No way you could bend it or hit your speaker by sliding groceries, shopping bags or anything else around in your trunk! Great product, easy install with cordless drill.

This works great and protects my sub. However, I needed to buy some metal spacers in order to mount it about 1/2" higher than normal in order to clear the sides of my sub's circular frame. But it still looks great! And I'm not so worried now about puncturing or damaging my sub in any way.
