Default 6.5 speaker bag lids

Hey guys im looking to add speaker lids to my XC. Im looking @ Vtwin and Rusty Jones lids. Who has these and how was your experience with them? How is the quality? How well did they fit? Did you have to do any mods to make them work? Anyone suggest any other lids?(I dont like the magnum lids) Build pics would be cool. Thks

Saw these when I been looking. Look similar to the Rusty Jones lids but keep more the original stock look of the bag lids

Go with Rusty's. 600 paint marched to your door. Bolt right in. VTins use and internal baffle/box to mount the speakers and steals way too much bag space. Drops the speakers down into your bags.

+1 on what Dan is saying... I seen the Vtwin lids in person and they are bulky on the underside. I don't think those boxes are necessary in a sealed bag.

$600 paint matched to the door? Nice!!! That's not bad compared to what some of the other places want.

I see they are $399 but that's bare finished not painted to match...if they will paint them to match for $600 total (lids+paint) that's a pretty good deal👍 I like the way these look compared to the Victory speaker lids being offered by Victory

Yeah I dont like the goofy shape of the grills on the Vic lids. If they would have made the oval, circular or even square I would have went with them but I just cant get past those grills
