Arrow Design Feedback _ Please

I need your expertise, i believe there is a need for billet speaker grills in boats becuase of the flash and beauty of aluminum, there also is a need for certain customization.

We are working on a product that we feel just might fit that niche of people who like flash but want simplicity to install and offer a serious level of protection to the speaker.

The cover in the picture will fit a standard 6.5 grill without needing additional hardware as required from our other offerings.

The ones pictured are prototypes and we plan to start production as soon as we finish field testing.

just wanted to get some opinons of my fellow brothers on OSO.

Jeff, My very first thought was they look like a shower drain cover. But, I like it! Were you thinking of leaving it polished? Maybe you should consider "chrome" powdercoating. Then it would have protection.

Honestly? I think they are sweet!! Personally - I am not a huge fan of the grilles with the flames and all that design stuff. Granted, they are a nice piece and all, but for the grilles, I like 'em all business. Colors would be cool, powder coated would be nice, the polished ones look hot if they match the decor of the boat. So, all-in-all yeah I like em and I'd buy 'em based on the design alone. Nice work!

Thanks for the feed back, that is exactly the feed back we were looking for. Since, the introdcution of this design and approach we were challenged to make em fit the existing most popular Marine speakers MB Quarts and Alpines. With that said we have a new design that uses a inner round cirlce with smaller cuts surrounded by the larger cuts. It basically looks like a standard marine speaker grill but billet.

These are solid as they come and no additional hardware required.

Jeff

We believe that a guy who can afford a class act boat is usually going to be a class act and that style is important, hence a new classy product line that looks rich but with style.

thanks for your feedback.

I would put some curves in the product to make it look "distinctive", I can design someting for you for the right price.
