Yamaha HS80M Dust Cap Replacement

Alright, so a couple of months ago, somebody broke the dust cap on one of my trusty Yamaha HS80M studio monitors. That resulted in the speaker making a very terrible noise when playing certain frequencies. So, I decided to just 3D print a new dust cap and it was easier that I thought it would be. All necessary files can be downloaded below or on my Thingiverse page. If you decide to use my 3D model, please drop me a line! :)
