Metra's 82-8145C brackets will allow you to install select 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in the factory speaker openings of select 1996-2000 Toyota and 2013-up Mazda models. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to confirm that these adapters are compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 60 days.
Important Note: Some 6-1/2" speakers use a larger frame and require a larger cutout. We call these 6-3/4" speakers, and they won't fit in this bracket. This bracket will only work with speakers that require a cutout diameter of 5-1/8" or less.
I had high hopes for the mounting brackets that were included with my jbl speaker purchase. I figured that Crutchfield had me right with a bracket that went with my car and my new speakers. Nope.
Pros: Nice but just a placebo.
Cons: Wouldn't fit my car or the speakers I purchased. They said that they fit a Toyota. My car a Mazda.Crutchfield response on September 15, 2015 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get his new speakers installed, or help him return them for an exchange or refund.
I was disappointed with the free mounting bracket set that was included in the shipment along with the JBL mounting brackets already inside of the speaker packaging. I expected to just simply swap out these brackets for the ones that were factory installed on the car. Not so: new holes would of had to been drilled in the door frame of my 2105 Mazda 3 Sedan to mount this adapter bracket on the door. So... like another reviewer I modified the existing factory installed bracket holding the old stock speaker to accept the new JBL speaker. It came out quite nice actually.
Tech support's input on this is "these brackets are indeed designed to work in many Mazda vehicles, but on some models you have to drill new screw holes in the door. We're glad to hear you were able to install your new speakers by modifying the OEM brackets. And as a Crutchfield customer, whenever you have questions about a product or run into trouble, you can call our Tech Support team for free help."
Good to hear tech support folks, but... how about mentioning this up front about the speaker bracket install not being the same for all Mazda models. I specifically searched for my make/model/year so I expected the install to work for this year unless warned otherwise... So... these free mounts are in the trash and it took me an extra hour to modify the existing brackets to avoid having to drill any holes in my door panels.
Pros: Two sets of free mounting brackets included with the speakers
Cons: Neither of them are a direct swap replacement for the factory adapters, new holes need to be drilled....Crutchfield response on June 30, 2015 We often recommend reusing a vehicle's factory bracket when the difficulty level of removing the factory speaker is low. Otherwise, we try to help by providing the speaker brackets we offer for a specific vehicle.
Required drilling of the adaptors themselves that I had not anticipated. They got the job done and when paired with Dynamat it beat having to come up with something custom or having to try to reuse the stock adaptors with my new speakers.
Pros: Pretty good, good enough, fit.
Cons: Not a perfect fit for my application.
Although it was listed as fitting a Mazda CX-5 it does not (at least without extensive modifications). I reused the original speaker mounts after removing the OEM speakers and cutting out portions of the mount. The instructions with the brackets were for a Toyota.
Pros: Appears well made.
Cons: Did not fit a Mazda CX-5Crutchfield response on April 28, 2015 These brackets are indeed designed to work in many Mazda vehicles. In the case of your CX-5, you have to drill new screw holes in the door. We're glad to hear you were able to install your new speakers by modifying the OEM brackets. And as a Crutchfield customer, whenever you have questions about a product or run into trouble, you can call our Tech Support team for free help.
Was told by the Crutchfield team that all 6 1/2 speakers and some 6 3/4 speakers would fit my 1996 Toyota Rav doors. Nowhere on the Crutchfield web site does it says nything about 4 1/2 in speakers. I understood that the speakers I bought would require a little modification. I was horrified to find out that my vehicle had 4 1/2 inch speakers once I took the door panels off. If you put in your vehicle into the website, it will tell you that all 4 in speakers will not fit. If I would of bought those size speakers in the first place, I wouldn't have had a problem. Very dissappointed customer.
The speaker brackets fit perfectly in my RAV 4 and were easy ti install.
Pros: Perfect fit, easy to install
They fit excellent in my Rav4.
Pros: It fits
Cons: The screws provided are a little too short to be able to fit a foam gasket between it and the speaker. And, there is no as I like to call a shower cap to prevent water from getting to the speaker.
Overview: As of 11/18/14, the 82-8145 is compatible with select 1996-2000 Toyotas and 2013-2015 Mazdas. The bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of the factory speakers with select aftermarket 6-1/2 and 5-1/4 speakers. (Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.)
6-1/2 Speakers: 6-1/2 speakers with the 3-hole bolt pattern or the symmetrical 4-hole bolt pattern can be mounted using the tabs around the inner speaker opening of this bracket (if the hole spacing matches).
5-1/4 Speakers: The frame diameter of a some 5-1/4s is smaller than the brackets' cutout; in these cases a speaker baffle should be used to seal the rear of the speaker.

Recommendation by an advisor [ Michael Dec 28, 2015 ]
We don't actually show a bracket listed for that location in your vehicle. Here is the note from our database on it: The factory speaker in this location is an odd size with an odd mounting hole pattern. You will have to drill new holes for speaker mounting. Panels must be removed to access speaker mounting locations. [ Jeff Jun 23, 2014 ] Staff
