dust cover on the speakers yes or no

So I'm getting ready to install a hawg wired cs300 amp and zx speakers. I also have some Covington contrast grills for it. My question is do I have to use the stock dust covers ? The reason I ask is the speakers are red and I think would look really cool if it could be seen under the Covington grills. Anyone have any experiences good or bad with not using the dust covers ?

That's the look I'm talking about.

I removed the dust covers and have never had a problem, if you have a good looking speaker it lets them show, and if you play the music they shouldn't collect too much dust anyway...

aaaaaaaaaaaaa, just an opinion, no, the dust cover is more than a "dust cover", it also acts as a water barrier, ..... each to his own as far as removing them

How is a cloth like material I can see right through a water barrier ?

It can't. I don't spray water directly at the speaker when I wash my bike I cover the grill with a folded up micro fibre cloth. I'm also NOT a fair weater rider cause I wouldn't get much riding in if I was. I've been in some downpours and never had an issue with my Hawg Wired speakers even the ones in the TP Pods.

P.S. After a while those plastic grills that come stock get brittle and break easy. The grill cloth may be the only thing that keeps them together.

fine then uncover them, but that is part of the DUST covers duty.
