3 out of 4 of the grill pins on my A5-350 were damaged in transit and I need to buy some more. If I can find something stronger I will go ahead and upgrade the pins on each sub.

I remember reading about the breaking all the time. Does anyone know something I can buy that will fit in the existing holes and lock the grills in place?

Based on the dimensions I took with my calipers I think these will work.

Can anyone confirm?

One thing I have found out is that ED used all kinds of pe stuff. From feet to ports to griil pins to even the drivers. I'm sure those are the same ones. ED did a great job of pulling the wool over everyone's eyes. rolleyes.gif

Possibly, but it's not like PE makes it. They source everything. If ED was smart they got their parts from the same sources that PE does. Where high grade hardware is concerned that would be Penn-Elcom.

I ended up buying these.

This was the cheapest place I could find them with the lowest total shipping cost. From the dimensions I believe they are the same as what is on there now. I will update this thread once they arrive.
