The speaker cover, which is also known as the speaker grill, is an auto accessory that is designed to provide protection to the audio system speaker at the front of a motor vehicle on the driver’s side.
A speaker cover is important because car speakers would be vulnerable to damage if they were not properly covered. Because the car speakers work through the reception of amplified electrical signals from the audio amplifier, they contain electrical connections and wiring which, if they are affected by dust, dirt or moisture would be liable to short circuit or otherwise fail.
Furthermore, car speakers are often made of flimsy material such as paper. This is because the speaker must be able to move back and forth when the electrical signals are received, thereby converting those electrical signals to sound. Any damage to the speaker on the virtue of a damaged or missing speaker cover is therefore likely to cause consequential damage to the fabric of the speaker resulting in even higher repair costs.
It is important, therefore, that as soon as there is any damage to the speaker cover it is replaced immediately to avoid damaging the speaker or one or more of its components.
