Techy Biohazard 6.5&quot; Speaker Grille v2.0 Miata 3d printed RENDERED EXAMPLE over the intended Miata speaker cover. Here, one can see why standard speaker grilles wouldn't work with manual windows. The crank has about ~9mm of clearance, so 2~3mm thickness is fine.

Product Description

This is a decorative speaker cover "grille" which is designed to cover 6.5" standard round speakers, particularly designed to fit over early Mazda Miata factory front speaker covers with modification. Sold in singles, so a quantity of 2x should be needed. ____________________________________________________________________________ It is in the second design iteration, and has not yet been tested, and will be subject to refinements going forward. This is the revised, second version, v2.0, and may not be suitable as a finial finished product yet. It may not be a "generic fit" for any and all 6.5" speakers, as it was measured to go over the factory cutouts for the Mazda Miata, and not directly onto the speaker itself. I do plan to release another version which would be better measured for general use. ____________________________________________________________________________ Design Story: For my Mazda Miata (1993, "NA" model), like many others, I have upgraded the speakers. This required some mild cutting away of the factory speaker cover so as not to rub on the new larger speakers. ____________________________________________________________________________ Unfortunately this results in loss of protection for the speaker face. Speaker upgrades usually come with some nice grille covers, but none can be used in a Miata with manual windows, as the window crank hits any and all aftermarket grilles. ____________________________________________________________________________ So I set out thinking about some type of piece that would provide some fundamental protection while looking really cool or unique at the same time. As a computer modder, I quickly thought of fan grilles, which come in a variety of designs, and are typically thin enough that they don't have any clearance issues. Thus I thought, something like that but bigger for a speaker! ____________________________________________________________________________ One design I particularly liked for its techy and futuristic appearance is the "jdm malware" version of the Biohazard symbol, found available as a decal in the auction sites. After a many hours tweaking the original design, scaling, making the outer bezel, and holes, here we now have the working concept. ____________________________________________________________________________ Several factors will need to be tweaked along the way forward: overall thickness to be sure it doesn't interfere with the window crank [should be fine now in v2.0+], overall width to ensure just enough coverage [should also be fine now in v2.0+ but it may clash without cutting a larger hole in the OEM speaker panel cover], and screw hole placement [shouldn't interfere with anything in a Mazda Miata when applied to the front/top of the OEM speaker panel cover, as long as very short screws/bolts are used to mount it to the panel].
