    The grille protecting my 18" is what I would call light duty. It frequently gets dented in the back of the truck and I have to take it off and rebend it so the speaker won't rub against it. I would just get a rectangular grille for the whole face because I think they look better but on this cab the speaker is front mounted and the baffle isn't set in very deep from the edge so a rectangle wouldn't give enough clearance. Does anyone know where I can buy a thick heavy duty 18" round grille?

    Thanks. I don't have a micrometer, but I'm assuming mine is the .7 mm thickness. Is 1.1 mm really that much tougher?
     
  3. Yep, there would be a noticeable difference.
