This kit comes with everything you need! It may seem a little complex when you open the box but if you have an Alpine Type-R and need a grill this is the only way to go!

Great value and build quality

This grill is awesome. Compliments my type "R" subs. Very sturdy and well built. I love the trim piece that covers the screws and mounting brackets. Gives the grill and overall sub install a very clean look.

Grill does it job with no rattle

July 3, 2013

Grill does it job with no rattle. Only problem is apline gives plastic spacers. I own the type-S sub. I Snaped the type-s plastic spacer when fasten the screws. Wanted to get a nice face seal with the speake, so you can to torque it down. I had to take it apart and used the type-R spacers. Lucky they give you both spacers. The type-R will also work. Only difference the typeR is longer spacers because of more speaker cone movement.

Very satisfied!

May 11, 2014

I installed this product on the face of a custom fiberglass sealed box that I installed in the corner of my trunk. I was concerned that this may only be installed onto a traditional mdf or plywood box. Now that I see the engineering and design put into this speaker grill I can assure you that this will install onto any box or enclosure. If you have screws or bolt holding your sub onto your enclosure than this grill will mount right up.
Some reviewers state that the sub must be uninstalled before this can be mounted but I didn't find this to be true. You can unscrew one screw at a time and mount the grill clips.

Great product overall and looks VERY sharp!

The price was the best on Sonic Electronix.

My previous SWR-12D2 was punctured and has had inferior bass. I want to protect my investment.
CHRISTOPHER M on Apr 18, 2015
It was a gift.
Jason R on Dec 19, 2014
which one of the clear or black brackets for my grill do I install for the SWS-12D4 Alpine subwoofer?
Bryan M on Jul 8, 2015
Best Answer: I assume you are talking about the plastic brackets that hold the grill to your sub. I poked around on the internet a bit and found this: Grille Lock: Type-R (Black): x8 ||| Grille Lock, Type-S (Clear): x8 .

I also read in another review that:
"... Only problem is apline gives plastic spacers. I own the type-S sub. I Snaped the type-s plastic spacer [clear] when fasten the screws. Wanted to get a nice face seal with the speaker, so you can to torque it down. I had to take it apart and used the type-R spacers [black]. Lucky they give you both spacers. The type-R will also work. Only difference the typeR is longer spacers because of more speaker cone movement."

Hope this helps.
