I just swapped out the dead speaker in my sub housing for the Tang Band Sub. I've got to say, it sounds pretty good. You won't set off any car alarms with the bass, but it fills in the bottom end nicely.
It did not come with a grill of any kind, and the factory grill is too small. I don't see any way to adapt it without major surgery. What did the rest of you use for a grill over it? Looks like the mounting holes are spaced 6" apart. I had a couple sets of 6.5" grills that came with speakers I used in my pickups, but I didn't need them and pitched them. Would those have worked?
Anyone got a stray that will work on this that they will sell me?
no problems with it getting kicked as I inform riders that like to kick their feet all over that they better not kick the speaker. But then I also require the passenger seat to be all the way back so nobody but a basketball player can kick it.
I didn't want to take the chance the someone might kick the sub, so I ended up using a grill from an old set of pioneer speaks that I had in my parts bin. Sorry don't remember the size of the grill.
Sometimes I stop by my Mom's place and take her to breakfast, and I might be in the Fiero some day. She's 77 years old. I personally guarantee the first thing she will do is put her foot through the sub. I would bet my life on it. I'll figure something out.

I couldn't find anything easy to work, so I made one. Took a piece of black delrin, turned a cup from it, and milled some slots in it for the grill part. Sounds good to me, although there is probably only a 50% openess ratio, but it did protect the speaker - my wife usually has her camera bag in the front with her, and it takes precedence over the feet - feet use the left over space. I hd the delrin already - it was a cutoff, took about an hour and a half to make.
