Aftermarket Speaker fairing Grills for 2018 Road glides?

Any steel speaker grills out that gone more depth? As in more distance from the speaker? And what alternatives are out there?

Only ones Im aware of that are actually available are the metal hog tunes.

There are some designs out there from American hardbagger and XBS customs that are for batwings. Rumor has it they are working on a RG version but not available for purchase yet, just some random pics here and there.

For now its hog tunes or nothing that I know of. Drilling with a hole saw is easiest and then finish with a dremel if needed depending on tweeter size.

When I used some polk speakers the tweeters hit the back of the grill. I heated the grill with a hair dryer and used a tennis ball to reform the grill worked perfectly. The steel grills look like shit. Repaint the originals gloss black.

Im wanting to put the Hertz ML 280.3 tweeter in, thinking centering it to the 6.5 woofer. So either cut hole or take screws out of top of the tweeter and use the screws to hold in to the screen. Or cut hole and do it similar to this.
