Replacement Grill for Dayton Audio US620W 6-1/2" In-Wall Speaker
What are the outside dimensions and do these have a rigid frame?
I'm hoping to velcro these to a wall cavity and put some small surrounds in them. Do these seem like they might work for that purpose?
These US620W replacement grills have outside dimensions that are 7-3/8"W x 11-1/8"H. The edge of the perforated material is bent back at 90 degrees to form a lip that inserts into the Dayton US620W and IF-711 frame, (sold elsewhere on PE's site). The lip is 1/2" deep.The lip can be easily cut off with tin sheers and you may leave just enough of the lip so that there is no gap left between the grill and the wall due to the stack height of the Velcro.Alternatively you may completely bend the lip back at 180 degrees behind the grille. I'd place a piece of beveled wood behind the grill with another on the front side and then press the lip against a flat surface, bending the lip around the beveled wood. When sufficiently bent then you can remove the beveled wood and press it the remainder of the way flat.You might also try Vise Grip locking sheet metal pliers for this task and work around the grille bending a little at a time. Bending the grill leaves a cleaner edge than tin shears but the grille may require painting since the paint does not have enough flexibility to take on a new shape.However you do it you will probably want to begin working the corners in first using small pliers and trimming the lip as necessary to get a clean bend.NOTE: I'm pretty certain that PE has the incorrect dimensions listed for the US620W and the IF-711. They should both be listed as 9-1/16"W x 12-7/8"H overall and to have a cut-out size of 11-5/8" x 7-7/8". They should take some time to review this and update their website after they approve this response for posting.
