Would it be possible to put a grill where the red line is? To prevent things from getting inside the horn? I really like the look of an open horn, and don't want to put a full grill in. Would this affect the sound quality?

Wire mesh would work well and stop alot of the usual fodder getting up there (cans, plastic cups, flyers)

What would be the best way to attach the mesh? To avoid rattling and/or it coning loose?

If you are in the process of building these then you could put a shallow saw cut in the top and bottom panels. Then cut the grill oversize (height wise), and spring it  into the saw cuts so that the grill is slightly convex.

The only problem is that unless you have full face grills people will still use the hornmouth as a cloakroom/drinks store.

I have no problem with people using them to put stuff on, but I want to prevent any possible damage. Would I have to glue it in place? I feel like it would come loose because of the vibrations...

No chance will come loose ect, if you use a rubberized adhesvise , some out there are silly strong, no bass out there can knock that off..imho

dont forget its not under pressure as such, only air blowing thu the grill

A generous amount of small L brackets evenly spaced around the perimeter holding the mesh should do a pretty good job and be easy to retrofit with a small or right angle screwdriver

If you want people to feel the bass then a reflex design is probably best as you get the most air movement per decibel from those.      errrrr yes wtf?
