Alright, so I'm pretty sure I'm about to get these killer little 6.5"s for midbass. Problem is, they will be exposed and I need a grill to protect them from rouge kicks to the cone. with such a high surround and 12mm of throw I highly doubt any normal grill will fit. So I'm looking for ideas on what I can make, or buy.

And here is a pic of the pod I'm making for them so you see what I have to work with. the pods will be wrapped in vinyl.

hmm... that does give me an idea. Thanks. I didn't come across a bare grill like that while I was shopping.

open to other options if anyone has more.

I was thinking of something where the metal grill is removable to access the speaker's screws. like most grills are designed. but now im thinking about how to do a whole removable panel like on a speaker cabinet.

I have two Rainbow grills for the CSX line. Mount the speaker to the bottom/mounting plate. Then the grill connects to that plate.

yes, thats how they are usually made. I doubt any of those will be large enough to accommodate this speaker. I think I still have my rainbow grills to try too, though.

If I make removable panels then I guess I have to pick between magnets and pressure clips...

Mesh aluminum? I always thought it would be cool to make a grill with it and get the brand's logo stamped in the mesh... Like the logo slightly raised or depressed.

And the fact more than one person agrees does not make it a circle jerk, it makes it a bukkake scene and you're in the middle ;)

This might help.

Speaker grills.

And cloth/fabric in case you don't like the look of the grills. Simply buy the grills and change how they look.

You want this to happen to you? Give decent handshakes people.
