    subwoofer grille for high excursion subs?

    does anyone make these? or am i gonna have to fab something up myself? im not sure exactly what sub im getting yet but something along the lines of a DC XL or Fi BTL, sub will be a 12" regardless, i know i wont be able to use a normal grille because the surround would get fucked up.. only thing i can think of is to use the w7 grille

    http://mediacdn.shopatron.com/media/...da332c31cd.jpg

    but i want more coverage than that.. the sub is going in a center console sub box. thats why i ask. dont want any hands or anything touching it.

    any suggestions?

    you can use a grill,and place several washers under it (waffell) grill,to get it a few inches off the sub.ive done before,for a pair of high excursion subs under a truck seat,never had an issue

    And you think that grill pictured above with chicken wire would look pimp?

    Seriously.....if you make a ring, bevel the edge and wrap it....it can look like part of the box and look good. Just have to get creative.

    I wouldnt use chicken wire lol something similar but way more aesthically pleasing. But I like your idea too. Just don't want it to be muffled

    But I see what your saying. How would I secure it though for a quick release? Anything besides Velcro?
