Stout and Stylish Protection

June 6, 2011

This woofer grille uses heavy gauge steel in it's construction. Gloss black, chip/scratch resistant paint. It's mounting scheme uses the speakers mounting screws to hold it in place. The screws are concealed using a rubber trim ring unique to the grille, but looks like the one that comes with the Alpine speaker. A design that gives it a very professional look, while protecting your speaker against very tough abuse. I would never put a speaker in my car without one.

AMAZING PRODUCT!!!

December 31, 2010

I bought two of these grills for my brand new Type R subs. They come with everything you need to install your sub including self tapping screws and special clamps to keep the grill in place which makes it fit perfectly like a custom made glove, and a neat rubber surround to hide the screws (similar to the one that comes with Alpine Subs). They fit this way because they were made by Alpine specificly for the Apline "Type R" and "Type S" subs which is why they are a little pricey so don't go complaining about the way they fit or the price if you are going to use it for some other brand subwoofer other than Alpine. Build quality is great and you get what you pay for. In conclusion, its one great Apline procuct that works seamlessly with the other great Alpine products that it was made for.

Well Worth the Protection!

December 10, 2010

I bought this product to protect my 12" Alpine Type-R. I frequently have heavy things in my trunk and I wanted to make sure that the subwoofer wouldn't be damaged if something were to hit it. The grill is made out of thick metal and everything is pre-cut. I've had a few bowling balls hit the grill and it didn't even dent! My only gripe about this product is the price. $20 for a piece of precut metal is rather expensive. Some may argue that it's because of the name brand, but nowhere on the product itself does it say "Alpine".

Fits and looks great - a must have!

November 2, 2010

The "grill" that comes with the the Alpine sub is a piece of crap. It's only for show and has no function to it whatsoever. Mine had also cracked when a gallon of milk rolled over it while I was driving. This replacement grill is awesome. it actually protects the sub from stuff in your trunk; it fits perfectly; it looks cool; it doesn't obstruct the sound and this was the cheapest price on the internet.

Works Perfect With Alpine SWR-1243D

October 28, 2010

Got this for my 12" Type-R sub and it works/fits perfectly. The grill is extremely strong, ...now I'm not afraid to have things like jack stands tumbling around in my trunk next to my sub during spirited runs through the twisties. Okay, maybe not that extreme, but I'm sure it'll handle my jack stands being tossed into the grill. As strong and completely covered up my sub is with this, you can still clearly see the sub. I can see how if you're using this for other than an Alpine subwoofer, the outer ring may not stay on well, ...but for use with an Alpine sub, this ring is gonna stay on super snug and it isn't going anywhere. Oh and as always, Sonic Electronix has the best and fastest shipping.

My Sub Is Safe

September 19, 2010

Searched high and low for a grille that didn't look like something out of a bad robot movie and would stand up to (God forbid) something breaking loose in my trunk. Found it and then some. The rubber surround doesn't stay on (needs glue or something) but I could really care less.

Alpine quality

July 29, 2009

Bought covers for 2 R-series 12" Alpine subs of different generations. Bought 1st sub about 5 years ago and just recently added the 2nd. Covers fit BOTH subs nicely,even though dimensions were slightly different on sub depth and construction. As always, Sonic had what I wanted and delivered promptly and without problems.

Good Protection

May 4, 2009

This grill will definitely protect your subs from harm. Plus, it still allows you to admire them as well. Only downside is that it is a little pricey but well worth it and IS NECESSARY for anyone without grills.

Does it's job

August 11, 2008

I actually used this grill on a Cerwin-Vega subwoofer so I realize it's not perfectly designed for it but the rubber surround that covers the mounting screws keeps falling off. Other than that it's a nice grill cover that has saved my subwoofer at least 4-5 times already. Great product!!

It's probably great for Alpine speakers but not the best for Kicker.

July 12, 2007

This grill is probably great for Alpine speakers since it is Alpine. I bought one for my Kicker sub and the rubber cover gasket that covers the screws doesn't stay attached very well at all. It looks great when it's on there though. The actual metal grill however is extremely secure. The grill is better that I expected. I thought that you wouldn't be able to see the sub at all but you can still see the good looking sub fairly well. And it provides the ultimate protection for your sub. I can through junk in the back of my car without worrying about puncturing or scratching the speaker which is exactly what I was looking for.
