    You can't buy grilles separately from anybody, anywhere, for any amount of money, except for stupid metal discs intended for PA systems. I saw "one size fits all" plastic grilles at PepBoys once but they were like 7" diameter which is way to big for 5.25's.

    This is one of my pet peeves about car audio vendors. I will NOT buy speakers that don't come with grilles. The companies I've written to (like Focal) say "Use the factory grilles".... assholes... there AREN'T any in a custom kickpanel install.

    Grrrr.

    Not true, I had the 1st gen polk/momo components and didn't think I wanted the grills. A few months later, when I couldn't find them and wanted them back (they do look sweet, dont they ) I called polkaudio and told them my situation, I gave them a CC # and I had a pair in my hands 4 days later...

    Perhaps you should call Polk and pretend you own a set and ask to order new grills for them?

    Re: help me find grills for my components

    Another problem I've found is that the speakers that do come with grilles often have mounting flanges that are unique, and won't work with anyone elses grilles. That's why I've been searching for some universal type.

    I hope it works out for you.
