Default Protect speaker in anchor hole.

I have a JL 7.7 speaker installed in the front of my boat with the rear exposed to the anchor, chain, rope, etc....

What would be the best way to protect it?

I was thinking of getting big PVC Cap and cut off part of it (make it look like a helmet) and use it to shield the speaker. But then I started thinking about a misspent youth with my bazooka speakers. Is ti a crazy idea to use PVC to completely seal the speaker with 5200 or something? Figured I would sized it right about the same as the tubes JL puts them in

Or is there a better option that I am missing

The baffles they make for cars won't hold up to an anchor dropping on it, so you'll likely have to make something custom...Worse that could happen would be a change in bass response...

Most every one I know has a pair in the anchor locker including myself , I don't see a need for a shield , just be careful putting your anchor away
