Need a grill

I have a kicker l5 and would like to get a grill for it to protect it from touching my seat and getting hit. I have looked for one but only find 2 and I dont like either of them at all. Do you guys know of any others or and any other ideas of what I could use.

here is the only grills I could find.

Square subs arent exactly the norm. Other than kicker there is only a few companies that make square subs so your options are pretty limited. The only ones I've seen are the ones you've already found.

Yea I know, kinda sucks but I love the sub so I think I will just make something to keep my seat off of it and call it good.

It ain't that bad imo....it does it's job....protect the sub from seats. It's metal construction...so it's beefy. My setup came with the cover(used off craigslist). You can paint it to "hide" it somewhat. You can probably make a grille using like 1/4" steel round stock...or shoot......long shower handles or long truck grab handles...but imo, tacky.

Just make sure your seat isnt touching it and you'll be fine. I'd rather have the sub hitting the back of the seat than getting torn up in the grill
