Default Fake parcel shelf speaker grill on S40

I was installing the new sound system into my S40 today when I noticed that the parcel shelf speaker grills are not actually grills, they are moulded plastic in the shape of a grill!

Is this standard? They had the original volvo 5" speakers underneath them so it's not like they were blanking off a void.

I replaced them over my new speakers, but if it they are available I'd like to replace them with genuine grills as it can't do the sound any good...

Interesting. I'll have to try the sound with and without them to see the difference it makes.

Strange to have grills with no actual holes in them for the sound to propagate through.

I discovered the same thing today when I installed speakers in the back.
Beside the fact that they don't have holes to let the sound through they rattle on top of the speakers.
But I like how they look..
