LED Rings on ZFT5 Tower Cans?

Is it possible to add light rings to these tower cans? I know the rings are installed behind the speaker grills, but these look to be inset into the cans, so the light output might be blocked? Anybody done or tried this? If so how do you power the rings? This tower looks like itd be a pain to fish wires through lol

I thought all LED rings installed behind the grill... am I wrong? I was under the impression that the 6 screws come out, place the light ring in and them replace the grill using 6 longer screws... thus pushing the grills out 1/4 or so.. not right?

Are these not mounted behind the grills?

This go behind speaker basket, which is the typical arrangement. Not saying you could not mount a ring between the grill and basket, but one intended to go behind the speaker would likely not look good or fit good.

In your setup with speaker recessed deep on the pod, it might show better light to be behind the grill, rather then behind the speaker. However, they are going to have to be machined with that application specifically in mind.
