Universal 6"x8" to 5-1/4" Bracket

Written By Glenn W, SE WI on Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works great and the price can't be beat compared to cutting one from sheetstock.
Pros:
Real time-saver and allows you to re-use expensive 5¼" units in the less populated 6" x 8" locations.
Cons:
Since you'll need 8 screws at each speaker and the vehicle only has 4, you'll need to make a run for some screw/washer/locknut sets but you'd need that even if you made your own adapters.

universal bracket

Written By Leonardo aguirre, El Paso, TX on Friday, April 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It worked very well even though I had to get some other screws and nuts to secure the new speackers to the bracket it self because the screws it came with did not have a nuts to secure it correctly, they would just hold the speaker in place and as for screwing the backet to the door I just used the screws that held the stock speakers in place.
Pros:
My speakers wouldn't have been able to be installed to my door with out Them, sense my new speakers were smaller than the stock speakers.
Cons:
You may have to get some other screws and nuts to secure you speakers to them.

Universal Bracket

Written By Lon, Lancaster, SC on Sunday, January 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used to adapt 6 1/2" Blaupunkts to factory 6x8 openings. I had to drill some holes to match up with the speakers and the girth of the speakers caused an uneven fit and seal around the speaker which required me to "adapt" the bracket.
Pros:
Easy to alter and adapt for different fitment issues.
Cons:
Did not easily fit around 6 1/2" speakers for a tight seal.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted adapters that had the single woofer in the center (not off-set, with the tweeter). The material seems sturdy, and matches the housing material to which the speaker is mounted within my door anyways. These should do nicely for my upgrades. Thanks.
Pros:
Woofer hole is centered; sturdy material; good fit.
Cons:
None that I foresee.

These brackets fit perfectly in the stock locations when mounting the new Kicker 5.25" speakers. I would definitely recommend these for anyone installing 5.25" speakers in a 6x8 stock hole. I do wish they offered the ability to mount a 5.25" component set instead of just a 2-way speaker...
Pros:
Perfect Fit
Cons:
No Component Set Support

i bought Pioneer 5 1/4 components so i needed some of these. so i bought them. the hole was large enough to fit 5 1/2 in them. regardless they fit i just had to seal it with some Butyl rubber sealant 1/16 to 1/8 inch space between the edge of the speaker and the hole edge of the adapter then they worked fine.. buying these be prepared to do a lil extra. No idea how my mb quart rear 5 1/4s will fit with these.. ill update when i go to install. they however fit the 6x8 hole perfectly
Pros:
cheap durable
Cons:
dont quite fit 5 1/4 speakers. hole could be smaller.

Fit in stock location with Boston Acoustic Speakers there is a substantial void when you insert the speaker so there it is not air tight. I would recommend using a cut out made from MDF or HDF to ensure your speaker fits properly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I took off a star only because the instructions that came with the brackets were
a bit vague. Wasn't specific on weather to mount the bracket first then install
the speaker or vise versa. I just installed the bracket first then the speaker
and worked out fine. This bracket does provide more speaker size/shape options
without drilling or cutting into your doors. My stock speakers were 6X8s (oval)
and I chose to install 5.25" (round). Once again Crutchfield provided these
brackets free of charge with the purchase of speakers! Thanks Crutchfield!!!

These adapter plates are a super easy and convenient way to get round
speakers into an oval opening. I cut off and discarded the cup of a foam
speaker baffle and used the remaining ring between the woofer and this
plate. I also put a piece of Dynamat on the door behind and around the
speaker opening. The result is a phenomenol sounding pair of component
speakers. Neat, clean and noise-free install. Thank you Crutchfiled for
coming through once again.

Not worth paying for these.

Written By MGDboy111, Kankakee, IL on Friday, February 06, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ya they are great if they come free. But they come with no hardware to install. I used brand new Kenwood KFC1361S with these, the screws that same with the speakers were too small to catch on the plastic. So I had to go spend $4 more for 8 screws.

Good thick plastic is about the only plus right now.

Since it just comes with 2 pieces of plastic and no screws I would say this is not worth the price!

these adapter brackets make speaker install very easy and they went into my car with no problems. however, they are a bit flimsy and you are not able to tighten the speaker mounting screws very much at all. you can see the slots in the pictures. those slots are where the speaker mounting screws get screwed. it's thin plastic so the strip out very easily. they seem to have done the job so far but you should be careful when using them.

Good product for undersized speakers into existing locations. If you get them for free you can't beat it. I don't know if the price is a good value if you buy them seperate. But, if you have smaller speakers you need to fit into a current application, I guess they would be just what you're looking for.

Glad they're free

Written By Bobby, Fort Worth, TX on Monday, September 03, 2007
 
I bought these to go in the front doors of a 2004 Ford Lightning. They seem to be pretty sturdy, but my only complaint woulg be that with a set of 5 1/4" Infinity Reference components there are gaps in a couple places between the mid and the adapter. I used a layer of dynamat on top of the adapter to fill in the cracks. They sound great, and I guess I can't complain too much because they were included for free, but I wouldn't pay $15 for something I have to modify to get it to work right.
