Speaker Bracket

Written By S, Greer, SC on Sunday, February 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Relatively good bracket, but it is not a perfect fit. Also it need to come with instructions and an installation diagram.
Pros:
Good fit
Cons:
No instructions

Not the fit you're looking for

Written By ArvM, Los Angeles, CA on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Wouldn't fit in the factory bracket, not would it accommodate the speaker. Needed to hack into the ring to get the right fit- counter intuitive for an 'adaptor'.
Pros:
Solid construction, Crutchfield service
Cons:
Doesn't fit...

Not even close

Written By Ryan, Sasebo, Japan on Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I ordered these to the understanding that it would fit my 316ti. Not only was it not a direct fit, but it was able to be fabricated in any way shape or form. Bolt pattern, size, and depth all were wrong. Not to bummed though bc I only paid $ for the pair. Still love Crutchfield. Im active duty overseas and their free fast shipping beats this one bad experience.
Pros:
none
Cons:
all

Works Great (rear deck)

Written By Ray, Akron, OH on Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used these in the rear deck of my 2000 BMW 323Ci coupled to MTX TNS65 6.5in speakers in the rear deck (OEM ones fell apart). There weren't pre-drilled holes, so I called Crutchfield. Got an immediate answer. Simply drill into the bracket and put some pan head screws in and you're good to go. The stock grill even sort of fit over the speakers, so no need to use the aftermarket grill.
Pros:
Fit, sturdy, easy to use (once I found out you had to drill into them)
Cons:
No pre-drilled holes for 6.5in speakers (maybe a small piece of paper that notes this would be good)

It's plastic

Written By MattN, Cameron, NC on Saturday, January 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm keeping my expectations low for this one and expecting it to break in the near future. I used it to secure Polk DB-651s speakers in my 2003 BMW E46. The bracket does NOT attach to the speaker, and the speakers are NOT attached to the door panel. So, pretty much my speakers are just behind held in there by a piece of plastic pushing down on it. There were no instructions on how to put them on there either. The three bolts only fit in there with barely one full turn before the bracket started bending. The tabs on the brackets are bending down about 1/4" from their original position, and that was just so the speaker wouldn't slide around. With that much tension on the tabs, it's only a matter of time before something breaks and my speakers slide into my door.
Pros:
Speakers are mounted.
Cons:
No instructions. Plastic.

Blah....

Written By Nathan H, Leawood on Friday, June 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product is well made but it would not work for my 6.5" Polk Audio speakers. Tried multiple times to get them to fit properly, ended up buying wood and making my own custom speaker adapters. Money down the drain.

Aftermarket speakers in E46 = Buy this!

Written By Jamie, CO on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great little adaptors. OEM BMW speakers have three offest tabs which won't work with aftermarket speakers. These adaptors are a perfect interface between aftermarket speakers and the OEM door panels.
Pros:
Cheap product vs making your own spacers. Different mounting tabs for various aftermarket speakers.
Cons:
None for this price. Make sure your aftermarket speakers come with screws that will work with this plastic adaptor plate.

MUST HAVE for e46 owners

Written By kenner, SC on Monday, January 31, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A must for all e46 BMW owners - these brackets worked like a champ in front doors
allowing a 6.5 inch speaker with low profile teater to fit with only minor mods of
aftermarket screws and additional foam spacers, to kill rattles. These even allowed me
to install 6.5 inch, low profiles in back deck, with same mods, however, I had to use the
factory grills -- the BMW grills wouldn't allow enough clearance for the tweeter cones --
note that asthetics of back deck application described will not satisfy those who want to
keep factory appearance.

It works, but not out of the box

Written By Bernard, Princeton,NJ on Monday, May 03, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
You can make this work, but it's not a trivial bolt in.
-Pay attention to the picture. It may look like the mounting holes are evenly spaced but they're not; there is a definite orientation. This also affects wiring.
-Note the ridges on the mounting holes; they really must go toward the speakers, which means for mine (Polk DB 521's), the Scosche frame gets bent, unless you file down three of them that are unused. If your speakers can mount on the front and stick through without interference, this might not be needed. Mine could not.
-The supplied 4 mm screws are 3-4 mm too long for the mounting holes (I have a 2003 325xi); you could use washers to space, I used shorter screws.
-Speaker mounting screws supplied were flimsy sheet metal; also replaced these.
-No info on which BMW wire is + or -; found on another site. (Left +: Blue w/ white stripe, Right+, Blue w/ red stripe)
-Would have been good if they supplied terminals to plug into the existing connector; again made some. Alternative is to solder your speakers in directly (bad idea for future maintenance) or cobble up another connector (get insulated pairs)

Overall the need is for proper parts and an instruction sheet. A Scosche instruction sheet would have saved me a lot of time. Generic one from Crutchfield isn't too useful.

Two other hints: if your car has the foam gasket around the speaker, reuse it. Also, be smart to have a few of the door male plastic clips; several of mine were pre-broken.
