Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got these to install Kicker's in rear door of Xterra. Only needed to drill one hole and the speakers went in nicely. Fits perfectly behind the factory door panel.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Required to install Infinity Primus PR5002is rear panel speakers into a 2000 Chevy Camaro Convertible. They worked as designed placing the speaker at the desired location (depth). Could not install the speakers with out bracket.

Pros: Worked as designed

Cons: Instructions could be better.

didn't give enough depth

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to trim the piece to fit and find that the depth was inadequate for the location of the speakers. After some adjustments to placement, I settled with something less desired but I was able to use these to get the speakers in place.

Works, but not a direct replacement

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the Nissan Xterra rear speakers, this bracket does not quite fit exactly. With some effort, you can get a decent fit for the speaker in the hole lining up 2 of the existing holes and drilling one new. Use care when routing the wire, as the factory speaker wires plug in outside of the door panel, while the replacements will need to be fed into the door panel. Overall, still not a difficult installation.

Pros: Works.

Cons: Correct fit would be much better.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Let's not kid ourselves. These aren't some crazy difficult product to make and use. They're speaker brackets, and they excel at being speaker brackets. Took about 10 minutes to install the pair and they seem to be holding up very well since the install. So far no distortion noises from my speakers. Definitely a must have for xterra owners looking to replace their speaker system.

Pros: Easy install. Sturdy construction.

Cons: None so far.

Performed to expectations

These brackets did what they were supposed to do, just as expected.

Pros: Easily adapted to the installation requirements of my doors.

Cons: None

Didn't quite fit the speakers they were intended for

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield sent these to accompany the Sony XS-GT1638F, but when I tried to put the speakers into these, they didn't quite fit. A little heavy pushing and one of the mounting tabs on those particular speakers would bend up enough to sit solidly into these mounting brackets. Not a problem for me, just thought I'd point that out.

Life made simple!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These mounting brackets made the task of replacing the old factory speakers with the new 6 1/2's supplied by Crutchfield a snap. I spent more time placing back the factory panels than the time spent installing the new speakers. Thanks so much for supplying these FREE brackets, you guys are awesome!!

Pros: a win win situation!!

Cons: none

as stated in the other reviews these do not fit without some alterations. (2nd gen xterra, non rockford fosgate) kept them only bc they came "free" with the speakers i ordered.

Drill, Drill, Drill............

Written By Tanker, NY on Saturday, June 04, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits but after much drilling. Does not mount in factory holes and does not come with a template. You need to center the bracket and make sure that the holes have metal underneath to drill into. Speakers need 4 holes too for the not so self tapping screws. They should make one that fits better or warn that it's not a direct fit.

fits, but not so good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

these came with my order of speakers for a 2011 nissan xterra, and at first i was very pleased, however when i went to screw the assembly to the door panel, i found that the tabs with the screw holes did not line up very well. i was able to get them screwed in, but it came at the cost of having to put the screws in at an angle and was not very sturdy :( i decided to return them because i am concerned my speakers may eventually fall out of the door panel after hitting miles and miles of bumps and potholes. these are listed as being intended for a different vehicle, and it seems pretty obvious why. i think a vehicle specific one should be molded to mate up to the holes better in the xterra.

Product Research


Overview: The SAC653 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 or 4-hole bolt pattern can be mounted using the multiple openings around the perimeter 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 bracket's cutout; in these cases a speaker baffle should be used to seal the rear of the speaker.


  • Cutout Diameter: 5.093"
  • Height: 0.56"
  • Three-Hole Spacing (6-1/2): 4.625"-4.82"
  • Four-Hole Spacing (6-1/2 or 5-1/4):
    • Perimeter: 3.78"-3.95"
    • Diagonal: 5.325"-5.565"
