I'm buying a set of Ology Audio comps, and the tweeters that I'm using (Dayton Neo (http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=275-030&scqty=2)) don't have grills.

Does anyone know where to buy grills that will fit these? Any alternative ideas would be appreciated, also.

Parts Express, maybe?
Or madisound.

depending on how and where you mounted the tweets you can make a grill pretty easy

I was thinking I could buy some wire mesh, and cut it to size, then heat it and press it onto the plastic surround, making it melt to the plastic and secure.

grill cloth grill material and 2 peg feet with peg feet mounts should take care of it

Um... What are peg feet? Could you explain a little more?

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=260-366 cut down the peg mounts and glue them to the grill cloth covered grill (you can color the grill cloth to match as well.

So I have to make a ring to attatch the cloth to, then these pegs hold the ring in place?

So the pegs will mount around the tweeter in the door panel, right?

yup the pegs can make their own rise so just grill cloth and metal grill material would be needed
