    Icon8 FRUSTRATED! I can't find a subwoofer grille for my Pioneer TS-W309D4. Box mount?

    I just bought a couple Pioneer UD-G308 subwoofer grilles from Crutchfield, but the screw holes don't line up with my TS-W309D4s, which has slightly bigger circumference.

    My subs have a large plastic lip, and it seems that it will get in the way if I try to mount any kind of cover.

    I called Crutchfield and they recommended their generic waffle style grille, but reading the reviews I learned that it sits on top of the sub and its actually about 1/16" small, and about 1/3 of the reviews reported that it didn't fit at all.

    I am tempted to get a 15" grille and just mount to my box, but it will be a tight fit.. any suggestions?

    I have been literally looking all day for something I know will fit and I can't find anything, I even called various stores and manufacturers, but they all just wanted me to buy it and find out...

    Oh yeah, are there any grilles that mount directly to the box? That way I don't have to worry about the screws lining up, as I can just drill them wherever.. thanks!

    I'm in a similar situation.

    There are few generic grills made for fat surround subs, so I'm thinking about using a 12" Kicker square L7 grill over my round 10" Kappa sub.

    You could get one that mounts to the box. Then if you are worried about the sub hitting it, just space it out with a few washers.

    I can't find any box-mounting grilles, although I suppose I could just mount a 15" cover to the box, but my sub box is not much bigger than 15" wide in the smallest parts, as the boxes are custom cut for my trunk.

    Any suggestions over the cd312s?

    Re: FRUSTRATED! I can't find a subwoofer grille for my Pioneer TS-W309D4. Box mount?

    Well Amazon will hold them until tomorrow, morning.. I'll just have to see how it goes.. ugh.

    Anyway, if anyone in my position ends up reading this, there is something on Amazon called a Bar Grill that mounts to the box. If you had a 12" sub, you would search "12 bar grill". Problem with this is all it is is just 4 bars running over the sub, which would work for most people i suppose. Someone recommended overlapping 2 of them in an X shape for more coverage, and I have to admit, it looks a lot better, but I have to wonder if if it would vibrate and rattle.

    I'm not sure if I should cancel my Audiobahn cd312 order and go with the bar grills or not.. any tips? what are the chances of the cd312s actually fitting my Pioneers?
