Keep factory JK sub grille with aftermarket sub?

Can the factory JK subwoofer grille (from the Alpine "upgrade") be mounted to an aftermarket sub? I'm ordering an Alpine SWR-8D4 and I'd like it to be as stealth as possible. I'll use a spacer to ensure adequate room to mount the Alpine in the factory sub box. Yes, I know I need a new amp to power this sub -- got that part covered.

I think it would depend on whether the holes that mount the grill are cover by subwoofer. If not, I don't see that mounting the grill would be a problem.

Did the factory grill end up working? This sub is on my short list and I'm curious about this as well.

From doing several of these.. The best subwoofer with the cleanest look (and not using the factory grill... is the JL audio 8w3 subwoofer with their own grill.. We have another wrangler coming in this week to do.. I will probably do a build log on this one, so will post a pic when done..
