Quoted from herg:
You could probably trim it down to just smaller than the grill, then sandwich it between the grill and speaker panel. I feel like it might take away from the look, though.
Keep in mind I don't have any hands on (or eyes on) experience with the detailed workings of a Spooky speaker panels....but from the install pictures, could you just leave the mesh where it is, pull the speaker and put the new light "spacer ring" between the mesh and the speaker?
It seems that would be easier than trying to trim it to go on the front, directly behind the new grill design.
If that is possible....I don't think it would detract from the new grill design at all (since the design is not made to have light shine through the actual design). The mesh being there would probably defuse the light a little bit as it would put the mesh between the lights and yo eyes.
Having said that...I think it would possibly look better between the light ring and the speaker (as they recommend if you want to use the mesh) as that should light the mesh up in the back of the lit area instead of the speaker...giving the whole design / lit speaker area a cleaner and less cluttered look.
Another thing I was wondering about...someone mentioned the speakers tweeters being extended past the speakers mounting points??? If that is the case....how is it mounting flat against the mesh in the first install picture?
In any case...maybe I'm not understanding something or even what this "mesh" is, but it seems it should be easy enough to try it without the mesh, with the mesh directly in front of the light ring or with the mesh between the back of the light ring and the speaker. Let's have one hardworking, brave soul post a picture of it done each way if possible to see how each way looks.
