Scosche's multipurpose SAC-656 brackets will allow you to install select 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in the factory speaker openings of select 1980-up vehicles. 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.
Fit new speakers in old hole perfectly.
these in no way work for the rear doors of a 2016 Subaru Forester. Luckily the ones that came with the speakers did.
Cons: do not fit.
Does not allow for direct mounting to existing speaker housing. It would mount to the door if I wished to do a shoddy installation and not use the crossover.
Pros: I was able to modify the existing housing and finally mount the adapter to it. 7 hours later...
Cons: Took 7 hours to convert to a clean install.
Estas bases para las bocinas del dash de mi jeep no funcionaron porque no cuadraron con los rotos de los tornillos. These brackets for my Jeep's dash speakers didn't work because they didn't match up with the screw holes.
Cons:Crutchfield response on July 24, 2016 Translation provided by Crutchfield's International Sales & Support team.
second time i've used these free adapter plates for an install knew to buy some self tappers to finish the job
Pros: necessary to install
Cons: don't match factory holes at all
Even though it's specified for Dakota installations, it won't fit without modification. The ears on it are about 5 mm too long. Also, when installed as instructed it flexes. That issue evens out once you've mounted it in place, but it feels cheap. Also, there is no gasket provided, so small gaps are inevitable.
Pros: You can easily saw it.
Cons: A few mm from fitting anything.
a little modifications and this worked like a charm. I come to the full understanding that universal means you might have to finagle a bit which in this case is absolutely true, but no worries because its easy and leaves you with more than enough options.
Pros: soft but durable plastic making modifications a cinch, many usable options, lots of included hardware, better than old school wood or abs fabrication.
Cons: not truly universal, but pretty close
Cant beat free brackets that make installing new speakers that much easier.
Pros: Free and easy
These get the job done, no modifications requires
Had to modify a bit to fit but was very easy to modify.
Pros: Easy to modify Fit perfectly
I couldn't get them to work right, so I just broke the small tabs on the stock mounting bracket and lined the holes up. This was a waste of money
Cons: Didn't fit, so I didn't use it.
As expected, the adapter was a perfect fit for the 6.5" JVC speakers I ordered. However, it did not fit the speaker mount in my JBL-equipped 2006 Toyota Sequoia. Had to cut off the original speaker rims and attach the adapter to them, then install the whole shebang in the mounting space. Works, but took a lot of elbow grease (and I'm not sure I managed to seal the edges properly for good bass response...).
Used these to adapt 6.5 in kickers into 6.75 in holes in a Wrangler. Work perfectly.
Pros: Great fit.
I had to modify these because they interfered with the door panel (rear door 2009 HHR), this meant just rotating the bracket and removing extra plastic where I could. And because I had to slightly rotate thr bracket, I could not use the speed clips at all.
Pros: Worked with my vehicle, easy to modify if needed
I've hooked up car audio for myself and friends over 20 years this product didn't fit my car at all I ended up fabricating a plate out of pieces of it an spare parts to make it work......nice try but some parts don't fit all vehicles
Cons: Wouldn't even trim to fit and work
easy to install speakers with tis kit , thanks
Pros: makes install very easy
Easy options for upgrades to your vehicle. No more creating brackets taking hours to build.
Pros: Work is done, free, whats not to love
Cons: May not fit all applications....but worth a try.
Seems like a great product, but does not work for Audi Cabriolet.
These are a good idea, but they really don't work well. I ended up not following the instructions and mounting a different way. Only 1 screw hole lines up and I ended up making metal clips to hold them to the door frame.
I realize these are a universal type item, but they really don't fit the 2015 Forester. There was no way to line them up with the existing mounting holes, so I took the factory inserts out of the holes so they wouldn't interfere with the plate and drilled new holes to mount the adapter plate to.
Cons: Don't fit my application really
You need these. They are great and provide easy options. Very nice.
Pros: bracket has install options
First of all let me say I am not a car audio guy at all and this was my first big project. I thought these mounting brackets were incredibly easy to use and really made things go quickly for me replacing my front door speakers.
Pros: Easy to Install and easy to follow instructions
Got he kit of the Scosche SAC-656 Mounting Brackets and it made my life so easy that it took me 10 minutes to mount all 4 speakers in place with no issues
Pros: easy to use
Cons: try not to lose the tiny log nuts
These were included for free since the site said the Infinity Reference X REF-6502ix speakers wouldn't fit my 2005 Altima. The speakers themselves came with mounting brackets that actually worked better, so I didn't have to use these. They wouldn't have worked if I had needed them to either because the screw holes didn't line up.
Pros: It was free.
Cons: The screw holes didn't line up with the speakers and the door.
Simply doesn't fit my 01' Toyota Camry. I had to mess with this mount for about an hour and drill new holes to get any semblance of a fit. I mounted this over 2 years ago, but I just went back in to check something while doing some research for an amp, and I was frustrated all over again with the terrible fit because it's a pain to take down and put up.
Cons: Doesn't fit.
They made installing these upgraded speakers an easy issue, anyone can follow your instructions to install
Pros: Made installing the speakers easier then I thought, which wasn't that big of a deal .... Maybe I should go to business installing systems if there all as easy as yours !!
Brackets worked as described and made aftermarket speakers for in factory hole.
Great Product and service
The 6" speakers I bought were listed as "fit without modification" but the speaker mounting holes were about 1/16" too wide. Enough that I could not mount the speakers without drilling the speaker frame or the OEM mounting plate. After about an hour of fiddling with the SAC-656 brackets, I was finally able to attach them to the door and the speakers to the SAC-656 brackets. I had to use the extra plastic pieces as spacers so the speakers wouldn't hit the screws holding the SAC-656 brackets.
Pros: were useful
Cons: because the speakers were so close to the OEM mounting plate size, the SAC-656 bracket screws were in the way when I tried to attach the speakers.
Grea idea. Great product.
Pros: well thought out, I love these brackets
They were free and worth every penny. Ended up tossing them and getting the drill. Speakers :great. Mounting brackets : junk
Pros: Easy to install
Works as advertised and easy to install.
Made installation a breeze a great product.
didnt work. supposed to fit 6.5" speakers not happening. the factory speakers are under size more like a 6 1/4" though everything says 6 1/2". also smaller in size than the factory bracket and bolt holes did not line up. really not useable for the rear doors
Pros: nothing good to say about them
Cons: poor instructions did'nt fit spot they are designed forCrutchfield response on April 19, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get these installed correctly, or help him return them for a refund.
Nice that they are included with the speaker. Straight forward installation
Pros: Has everything you need for any car
easy installation to factory location perfect fit
Pros: see above
Simple product that does exactly what it needs to do. Installed with new speakers in the sound bar of my 2016 Wrangler without any issues.
Pros: Multiple tabs for use in different mounting settings.
Cons: Adds top depth. If your speakers are a tight fit this is extra space you lose. Not much but still...
Easy installation and all parts included!!
Pros: It was a quick and simple install. Had to trim the bracket a bit for it to fit, but the parts that were trimmed were factory made pieces to be broken off depending on your vehicle fit.
Pros: Nice that they are included with the speaker. Straight forward installation
thought I would have a problem with the different size of the old speakers vs the little larger new speakers. IT was very easy to trim speaker opening to fit new speakers
Pros: easy to install
Everything works great all other products I've bought also fit & sound amazing
I've had better luck in the past with these adapters, however this time was different. I used these to replace the rear door speakers in my Silverado. The holes didn't line up at all. Drilling into the plastic mounting surface on the door was easy enough though and these provided the spacing I needed.
Pros: Provided the spacing I needed.
Cons: Holes didn't line up with those on the truck.
These adapters made life easy once I called tech support and was told to disregard the instructions and follow his verbal instructions.
Pros: Easy and cheap
Cons: Incorrect instructions
Couldn't be easier, really thrilled with the ease of install here. Highly recommended.
Pros: Simple, fast install.
Product does what it needoes to, but seems overly complicated. For my HHR, I wish I had just gone with a 6.75 speaker instead of the 6.5. Then, I could have just redrilled the holes I need the door and never used these.
Maybe not a bad product but did not fit the door screw holes in my back doors. In the I was able to unscrew the old speakers from their mounting brackets and screw the new speakers to them which made a more solid fit.
Cons: Didn't fit my door.
This does not work with full size Chevys. Check the review, Tahoes and Suburban owners all agree this does not work, yet Crutchfield still sells them.
Cons: Doesn't work.
Didn't fit the Speaker I was using had to cut out some of the inside of bracket would have been good for a 5.5 Speaker
Pros: Great for fitting Speakers in my dakota
Cons: Wrong size for my application
Was very happy to have these come with the speakers at no additional cost, and without me having to guess what ones to get with my speakers. They make it very easy by making it a package deal.
Pros: They fit the speakers very well and have the harder at to come with it
Cons: The holes didn't line up with my vegi cal very well but was easy enough to just drill new holes that worked.
These adapters are the perfect solution to the awkward sizing of the stock Jeep Liberty speakers. The holes are off by a small amount but will fit without modification
Pros: Work as they should
Cons: Tiny little bolts
This product is useless in my vehicle. Did not work.
Cons: This is not a universal fit produc and shouldn't be advertised as one.Crutchfield response on March 8, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Good quality product.
Pros: Fits perfectly
These brackets fit my truck fine, but the screw holes for mounting the speaker didn't. It required that I drill new holes to mate up with the holes in the speakers.
Pros: Fit my truck and at least these brackets came with some hardware.
Cons: Didn't fit my speakers
I love that Crutchfield includes the brackets and wiring harness when you purchase speakers these are things that you definitely need and would of been additional costs anywhere else, made installation super easy and quick and fit perfectly to my vehicle.
Pros: fit my vehicle perfectly using these brackets, love that they came free with the purchase of my speakers
These were a perfect fit. All the holes lined up perfectly and install couldn't have been any easier.
Pros: Easy to install, fit and installed with no problems.
Fit, but only with very small amount of modification, to meet with existing holes
Pros: Was furnished with speaker purchase. Did fit with only MINOR mod.
Cons: Required only slight modification to fit
These came free with my order so I should not have been expecting much. I put them in the front door kick panel of my 2001 Toyota Camry. The directions for install made very little sense. The screws that are used to attach the speaker to the bracket do not fit well and rattle constantly because you can not get the screws tight. the bracket also does not connect to the door well and has the same problem with rattling.
Pros: The speakers are in. There are about 1 million holes to make the bracket fit anywhere.
Cons: Rattles constantly Directions make zero sense Very Flimsy
I had no problems with these mounts. Understand that they are universal, not application specific. They work fine if you have the right hardware. The hardware that come with them is okay, but didn't work for me.
Pros: They work fine if you have the right hardware.
Cons: Universal, not application specific
So easy to match up and use in the place of the factory speakers for my 2006 PT Cruiser. Replaced the front speakers with ease. The brackets lined up perfect to the factory holes and the speaker was easy to mount in the bracket. It took more time to get the door panel off than it did to install the speaker.
Said would work with 2002 trailblazer but didn't. Ended up throwing them out after trying to modify as directions said.
Cons: Did not work
These came free with the purchase of my speakers to install them in my wifes 2006 GMC Yukon. They worked pretty good but the instructions weren't very helpful. I know I could have easily called Crutchfield for some help but I was determined to install them myself. I was able to figure it out after a short time but I felt that the instructions could have been less generic and more informative.
Pros: Holds my speakers just fine
Cons: Instructions were not very clear on installation
Talked to Crutchfield because the speaker had only a 32nd inch holding on the the 5 1/4 speaker. After a lengthy conversation it was suggested to use 1/4 plywood to cut my own template. Because he also found that the speaker plate was too large for the focal 5 1/4 speakers. He offered to take them back but I chose to go with his suggestion and it worked out for the best. Hopefully Crutchfield in the future will correct the problem with these speaker brackets.
Pros: Free with purchase
Cons: Flimsy and will not work with 5 1/4 focal speakers
Simple yet great product made install very easy only had to drill two holes. Holds speaker sercurely in door.
Cons: Leaves holes around speaker. Unlike factory speakers which are sealed in door.
Despite being a little more expensive, I went with Crutchfield and these Mounting Brackets for a few reasons: First, the appearance as well as description of the item imparted a sense of sturdiness I was looking for. Second, it included all the hardware and some nice instructions, just in case. I wasn't disappointed. Compared to the other products I'd been looking into, the Scosche brackets are top quality. Sturdy and built to last, not of the thin plastic I'd seen from others. They came in right on time, and in a quality package. I hooked up the speakers and mounted them in less time than I expected. No muss, no fuss (at least for into an 04 Dodge Dakota).
Bracket did not align to the front mounting box. Some modifications had to b made and extra screws to ensure a good sealed box
Pros: It worked, but with modifications made
Cons: Bracket doesn't align with existing screw holes, so extra screw holes are required around a Jeep wrangler front speaker box
Worked exactly as advertised to make it so my speakers in my dakota went right in without having to drill holes or uave to custom fit anything. Also came with all the screws and such you would need.
Pros: Everything mentioned above
Cons: Plastic could become brittle but seems sturdy
For a "universal kit", this product performed like a "custom kit" for me. Used these brackets to mount four new Pioneer speakers in a 1998 Dodge Durango. Install was quick and easy.
Pros: Easy to use bracket kit. Worked perfect for me.
These adapters were recommended to install Kicker 40CS654's as 2013 Hyundai Veloster rear seat left and right speakers. No adapter was needed for the left-hand speaker, and the adapters were too small to fit the cutout on the right-hand side (third door) - too small even if I had drilled the door. I ended up sandwiching the inner door skin between both the adapters (fortunately I didn't need one on the left-hand side) and using the grill supplied with the Kicker to stabilize the assembly. Screws furnished with the adapters were worthlessly small and puny (6-32 x too short) so a couple trips to the hardware store were necessary to get the appropriate hardware. All said and done the installation looks and sounds great, but these adapters are definitely NOT appropriate for this application.
Cons: wrong size, worthless hardware
I bought These adapters for rear door speakers in a 2016 Subaru Forester. I had an extra pair of Polk db5.25's sitting around and decided to install them in the new car. One odd thing is that Subaru installs 5.25 speakers in what appears to be 6.5" holes. No biggie, like I said, I already had these and bought the adapters. These adapters could have not fit the factory hole any better. I didn't have to drill ANY new holes! For the adapter OR the speakers. Made the install quick and easy.
Pros: No drilling holes of any kind in the 2016 Forester. Plenty of existing hole patterns for other cars as well. Made quick easy work out what can be a nightmare job.
I didn't really needed these for my 1999 Toyota Camry. It doubled the amount of work needed to install the speakers. Plastic ring is barely bigger than door speaker openings. I ended up drilling new holes and using speed clips to mount my new speakers.
Cons: The head on the "elevator bolts" to mount the speaker to the ring is really small and could slip out of mounting holes.
The installation notes indicated I may have to grind away some plastic at the end of the 3 tabs. For my Dodge Dakota, I did and they "fit somewhat". However, the overall assembly of the original enclosure ring, adaptor, speaker and grill looked kludgey at best and did not work with the door panel. So I punted using these adaptors. Instead I routed a rabbit in the original speaker enclosures and chopped off and reused the metal body ring of the original speakers to sandwich in the new speakers. I used double sided tape to reattach the original cloth grill rings, and the resulting assemblies fit perfectly.
Pros: Good for quick speaker retrofit
Cons: Not good for seamless speaker replacement
The brackets were ok, for my application it was necessary to modify where i screwed the speaker for one hole. They for the most part fit pretty well but not perfect. I have a jeep wrangler.
Not sure why all the bad reviews. With a little imagination and a drill, it will work pretty much with anything. Worked great in the roll bar on my jeep JK. Just had to drill one extra hole.
Pros: Does what it is designed for. Universal mount.
Cons: May have to get creative. But no big deal.
I bought Polk 6.5" Speakers. The speaker factory mounting bracket did not line up with this mounting bracket. I spent along time trying to figure everything out on the rear doors. Eventually I went ahead and broke off some tabs from the factory truck bracket and got this bracket to work together but had to use both brackets. This is the only way I could get the speakers installed. I do not know if this is a common or not but it was the only way I could see to get it to work. Had to do a lot of modifying but did get this to work on my truck.
Pros: Got it done...
Cons: Had to do a lot of modifying. Time consuming. Would have been a lot easier if the bracket would have match up with everything
Worked as needed connected into car factory amplifier
Pros: So Far Good
Product did not match Chevy colorado
Cons: Waste of time
Used these to install Kicker CS65's. Had to drill one additional hole in each adapter as they did not line up with the factory soundbar clip. The "cinch screws" flange is only a hair larger than the hole and pulled into the adapter upon tightening, which makes me concerned that they may pull thru on a hard bump and let the speaker fall. Had to use some weatherstripping between the adapter and soundbar to prevent rattling from the two plastics(adapter was flat, soundbar not so much). I used the factory jeep grill covers with no problem.
Pros: Does the job, stout plastic, all holes lined up except for one(easy fix)
Cons: Would of liked to have more robust cinch screws
These work really well for me. Very durable. As always Crutchfield is awesome.
Pros: Very Durable
These adapter rings were easy to use and fit perfect in my door. I did have to drill one small hole in the plastic to get a perfect fit.
Pros: Very simple to use. Fits most speaker brackets. Crutchfield provided them Free.
Easy to use - needed minor modification to work with my 2015 Wrangler.
Pros: Easy to install.
Adapter doesn't fit rear Chevy Traverse speaker holes without modification. Trying all different hole patterns supplied, the adapter is not a good fit. The speakers are hanging on my a half a screw hole width. It should come with deeper/longer self tapping nut clips to use the one factory hole and then the 2 other supplied outer holes on the bracket.
Used for installing 6 1/2" speakers in a 2006 Colorado. The brackets seem to lack the hardware needed to attach to the speakers. I ended up drilling more holes and attaching the speakers to both the door and the bracket.
The brackets fit the new speakers themselves just fine but did not line up with the panel the speaker bolts to. I had to drill new holes in the adapter and then it worked. Vehicle was a 02 GMC Envoy
Pros: Fits the new speaker great
Cons: Did not line up with the mounting holes in any orientation
Pros: made installation easy
Worked as designed, the bracket flexes when secured which causes vibration on the low end, I added an RVT silicone gasket and it solved the problem. Also the provided bolt/nut/washer that's included did not work as designed, I secured the adapter to the speaker with 4 of the included self tapping screws. TIP: Pre fit everything and remove all the extra mounting tabs prior to securing to the speaker. Cant really complain about free stuff though.
Pros: Cost, or lack there of.
Cons: suggested speaker mounting hardware not sufficient.
For 2009 Chevy Colorado Extended Cab. The bracket came with hardware. It uses a very small screw (flush screw) to secure the speaker to the bracket. I didn't have to cut the metal on the door. Yes, the metal did extended into the speaker area of the bracket but not far enough to interfere with the speaker so I didn't trim it as suggested in the installation instructions. I used the factory nutplate to start in the installation of the bracket with speaker installed. I centered the speaker in the factory cutout and tightened the first screw in the factory nutplate. Once that was tight, I used two 10 X 3/4 self tapping screws and secured the bracket. Once I tightened the last bracket screw. the speaker popped out due to the flimsy thin flush screw. So I used the self tapping screw, 2 each, and secured the speaker to either the plastic bracket only or the plastic bracket and sheet metal of the door. Speaker held on tight and the previously 4 installed flush screws were left in there since they didn't bother the speaker. I didn't use the flush screws on the other 3 speakers. First speaker installation is always a trial and error installation. Once you figure it out, the rest go smooth.
Pros: Definitely helped on installing after market speakers.
Cons: The only con is the thin flimsy flush screws used to secure the speaker to this bracket.
Crutchfield sent me two sets of these to install my Kicker 6-1/2s in my 2015 Wrangler Unlimited. They could definitely be better. In the rear soundbar, you have to either keep rotating the brackets until they fit or do some trimming to either the brackets and/or your vehicle. Also, the screws included to hold the brackets to the speakers were a bit short, 2-3 threads more screw would have been perfect and still not interfered with the installation.
Pros: They do attach your speakers to the mounts.
Cons: Oddly shaped for installing into the mounts. Attachment screws to attach brackets to speakers could be longer.
The correct adapter to mount the new speaker in the factory holes.
could use some more instruction on how to use, but after 1st speaker installed it went very smoothly
Simply put, these were the wrong brackets for my car (2015 Honda Civic Si Sedan). They came free with the Kicker speakers I had purchased, however, they did not fit. The installer tech was able to reuse the brackets from the factory speakers with some modification.
Pros: Looks like a nice quality product.
Cons: Wrong brackets for my car.
These worked great. But as with many things in, not enough fasteners to mount bracket to speaker (six screws supplied, eight needed.) When I called Tech to remedy problem, the young man tried to convinceme each speaker only needed three. After much discussion, i convinced him he was incorrect. He's sending me another set of brackets that will contain the screws I need to finish install.
Pros: Worked great when supplied with correct number of fasteners.
Cons: Note to Crutchfield - add some extra fasteners. Cheaper in long run.
I ordered a pair of Kicker 40CS654 for my '02 Chevy Avalanche, for the rear door, and these were free with the order. The speakers fit in the factory screw holes so I didn't use them.
With these free supplied adapters very little fitting was necessary
Pros: Fit stock locations
Worked just fine, didn't have to use for my rear speakers but it made mounting the front super easy!
Pros: Helps secure the speaker
Speaker bracket did exactly what it is explained to do. I had to grind down the corners a bit to fit, total job took 15 mins from removal of door panel to finishing the job.
Pros: Minor adjustments for a perfect fit
This bracket was very helpful to make the speaker installation fast and easy. My installation required the long tabs cut off and I also trimmed the other excess ears. After re-installing the door panel on the first door I knew what to do and had the speaker/bracket assembly ready to go right in and completed the install in half the time on the second speaker. Crutchfield is great to provide both brackets and wiring harness adaptors with their products and makes the installs much more enjoyable.
The brackets worked fine for the most part, I did have to modify the long tab and cut a quarter inch off so it would fit. I ended up shortening the other two about 1/8 of an inch so it fit smoother. They were a little too thick for the tabs to snap back in. Once I figured out the process for one door, I repeated for each door and the process was quick. Remember to take the rubber ring off the old speakers and apply it to the back of the adapter to reduce rattle before you put it back into the door spacer.
Pros: After modification fit fairly well.
Cons: Needed modification and a bit thicker than stock speakers.
They do what they are supposed to do and are included free with your speaker purchase. With that said, the plastic has a lot of flex to it and you are not going to get a tight seal. You can see the whole bracket bow inward a bit as you torque down the speaker. I use Dynamat on both sides to act as a gasket and element any unwanted sound from the plastic vibrating against the cars metal. It seems to work. I'm sure there are better brackets available but not for $0.
Pros: Free with speakers Works as described
Cons: Cheap build quality = flex and poor seal
Attaching these brackets to the speakers wasn't too difficult, however, when it came time to mount up to my 08' Wrangler, it hit a snag. There was simply no way possible to alight 3 holes to the factory mounts in any configuration without intervention. Fortunately, only one of the holes on the long tab needed to be expanded to allow it to bolt up. Quick and easy mod with the cordless drill had me up and running moments later, but it was annoying that it wasn't just a simple conversion.
Pros: In theory, worked ok
Cons: Having to modify the bracket to make it work.
Crutchfield recommended that it would fit my 1998 Nissan Frontier but it did not fit. Plate would have been better if you needed to drill your own holes. I would have had less confusion. Normally Crutchfield has good recommendations for adapter brackets.
Pros: Got it to work eventually
Cons: Took a long time to figure out that it didn't fit.
Not sure if I got the wrong item or what but these were horrible for my application. 1, one, uno hole lined up in my 2005 Sienna. I finally broke out the drill to make them work. Made a 30 minute job into an hour and a half. The other side went quicker because I had every tool I own in the van.
Cons: Did not fit.
These could come in handy but in my truck they were not needed. I did use them as a template to drill my holes, that was nice. Also they were free...
Pros: Free good for template
Cons: Not needed
Makes installation easier. I just needed to trim a bit of the edges of one tab with an end cutter.
Pros: Made installation very simple
Cons: The trimming was easy but still needed to modify it to make it work.
Easy to use
they didn't fit near as well as the ones that came with my kappa speakers
does what is suppose to nothing special
Custom fit any size speaker to vehicle everything included speaker mounting bolts, speed nuts and new screws
Pros: Free with purchase
Cons: Had to file holes since I reused factory screws to get them in
The bracket made installation much easier. However, I had to modify the original bracket assembly that came with the 2002 Dodge Durango to make it work with this bracket. After the modification, mounting the speaker back into the door was very easy.
Pros: Free with speaker purchase and make the speaker installation much easier
Cons: Took a modification to the original Dodge speaker bracket to work with this bracket
Plenty of pre-drilled holes and screws for many mounting options.
Pros: Very universal
Cons: Still had to drill an additional hole
Does not fit without drilling new holes
Although the adapter brackets worked fine, they are a little Too universal, in that drilling into your door frame is necessary. I have used other brands that required no drilling and provided more of a factory fit.
Pros: Speakers fit ring well.
Cons: Drilling is required.
Had to do some minor expanding of the holes on the larger tab to get the speakers to line up and get them to fit back in the roll bar position. Other than that, good product.
The adapters are perfect for this car (HHR).
Pros: Fit the HHr and made mounting the speakers very easy.
Used these to put 5-1/4" speakers into a 6-1/2" hole for my rear speakers in my '99 Dodge Durango. They worked pretty well, however, it did require some modification. I used the factory spacer, and the holes on the bracket didn't quite line up, and one of the tabs on the bracket is too long. I had to widen the holes slightly with a drill, and trim the over sized tab to fit into my factory spacer. I was able to use my factory screws and as a result have a pretty clean install.
Pros: Work pretty well, cost effective
Cons: May require modification to fit correctly, made of plastic
Adapter worked great
Pros: Actually worked
Cons: Little machine screws were too small
After pre-assembly, I found the brackets would not align with the rear door factory mounting holes on my 2000 suburban (premium non Bose system). I found that the Kicker 41dsc654 61/2" speaker standard mounting holes were a perfect match to the factory holes, I could even use the factory T-15 screws. The front mounting brackets supplied work like a charm.
Pros: Nice to have if needed.
Cons: Not needed for this application.
These did not fit my 2001 Xterra. I was able to get the Kicker 40CS654 speakers I bought to fit directly into the factory mount with out using this mount. When I tried to use this mount, the screws lined up underneath the speaker making it impossible to screw the mount into both the speaker and the factory holes.
Pros: Probably works great for other vehicles
Cons: Doesn't fit Xterra 2001
What an awesome design these things are. I used them for my 6.5 Kicker 2-ways and it made the installation much easier especially working overhead. I put them in a jeep sound bar.
Pros: A must have.
Were these supposed to fit into my car? Seems more like of a waste of money to Crutchfield to ship these brackets that are almost entirely useless!
Pros: They were free?
Cons: Everything else.
Product works great, simple to install
Pros: Quality, easy install
Not very useful in my Colorado... may be better in other applications
Cons: Didn't work well in my truck
Can't give a useful review because they were unusable for my application
excellent hardware, made installation super easy.
Pros: ease of installation
These adapters will work on lower end 6.5" speakers as the inner diameter is limited to 5&1/8". There is much more room to fit a speaker in my jeep unfortunately these are the only adapters. They do what they are supposed to do however don't seal up very well on there own. Check Crutchfield vehicle fit net guide as it seems to be limited to this adapter not the jeep itself
Cons: Cheap, small cut out diameter, needs sealed
Only 2 of 3 screw holes line up. Had to screw the 3rd screw into the plastic. Not blaming Crutchfield because this is what the supplier said would work.
Cons: Only 2 of 3 screw holes line up. Had to screw the 3rd screw into the plastic. Not blaming Crutchfield because this is what the supplier said would work.
Advertised as used to install 6 1/2 speakers without needing to drill. Shape of bracket seemed as though it was intended to match shape and size of factory speaker. 2 of 3 outside tabs matched perfectly to speaker. 3rd tab was slightly out of line and hole didn't come close. Mounting hole in that tab should be a long groove like in stock speakers to allow flexibility of where the screw will go. I had to drill a hole but if design was a little better, would not have been needed.
Pros: Strong durable material
great fit...made install very simple and quick.
Pros: great product
Still had to drill my own holes. Not a huge issue, but was still needed. Clips didn't fit as well.
Cons: Still need to drill.
nice to have but needed to drill a little bit. Better than drilling into door.
Pros: Easier install Free
Cons: not quite perfect
2002 GMC sierra crew cab. there is no way these would work for the rear doors. luckily if you order the kenwood KFC 6.5" you can kind of cram those in to the factory mounts and throw these in the garbage.
These are junk. They had did not have mounting holes to match the three-bolt layout of my Camry. This is easily overcome however. The bigger problem is that they are incredible flimsy. In order for a speaker to work well, it has to be held rigidly so that the speaker cone moves, moving air/creating sound. These flimsy brackets allow the speaker frame to vibrate, so that it is not able to impart sufficient motion to the speaker cone. Also they make it very difficult to achieve any degree of air tightness. Both factors, but especially the flimsiness, have a large effect on bass response. I was able to mount my speakers directly to the door without using the bracket, and bass response improved considerably.
Cons: Flimsy, leaky, lots of hole patterns but none fit.
Had to drill my own holes
Not that helpful to install in my Jetta. Would've been easier to drill new hole in the door(which I ended up doing on the 4th speaker). The fit with the bracket was fiddly and the door panel didn't really go quite back into place. These brackets were free with the speaker purchase, glad I didn't spend extra money on them.
Pros: None really
Cons: Poor fit
These didn't exactly fit as advertised. They barely fit the Kicker speakers and once installed, they were almost impossible to line up with the factory holes in the Forester's door panel. Called Crutchfield and they told me to drill my own holes... I bought an adaptor so I WOULDN'T have to drill my owl holes took 2x longer than it should have with these.
awesome accessory for the speaker install
Not even close to fitting my Kenwood KFC-1665S that I ordered. I drilled holes into the adapter so that I did not have to go through the whole modification to my '09 Chevy Cobalt old speaker housings. None of the bolt holes lined up like it said to my car. Made it work but it should not suggest it fits with products and vehicles it clearly does not.
Cons: Doesn't fit
Fits OK in the door of my 2004 Colordo. Re-uses one mounting hole, and requires drilling two holes for provided sheet metal screws.
Cons: requires drilling
Made install a breeze
Worked fine, but seemed kind of flimsy. I worried that I was going to break them during install.
Used adapters for 6-1/2" MTX Terminator653 speakers in front door panels. Needed to cut machine screws provided to mount speaker ring to adapters. Also, enlarged holes on adapter that mount to door panels. Installation looks clean and solid.
Pros: -sturdy built -all hardware included
Cons: -need to cut machine screws -need to enlarge door mounting holes, slight mis-alignment
Had to drill holes to fit. Thing had more holes in than a block of swiss bit could not align more than one. Had to drill the rrst
Well the adapter kit looked well thought out but the use of there very small stud like carriage bolts or whatever they were was counter productive. I think the use of small 6mm bolts and locknuts or even self-tapping screws.
Pros: Well thought out design
Cons: Small useless hardware
Very good product
Pros: Easy to used
Things like these kits save so many headaches and are what separates Crutchfield from so many others. It makes my installation a professional install and saves time too.
Pros: adapts to many fitting scenarios
Cons: none I know of
These work great in my '99 Dakota. Fits really well, easy to install. I'm pretty confident that even someone that has no mechanical skills can install these with no issues.
Pros: Good price. Fits in stock location as advertised.
Product should have bolted right in but unfortunately did not. Could only get 2 screws in and the other holes didn't match up. Had to drill another hole to get a snug fit into my sound bar.
Perfect fit in my Jeep Wrangler sound bar.
The holes do not align to the door for my 370Z. I don't understand why the directions say it's required. Overpriced piece of plastic that doesn't fit
Pros: It's a small spacer.
Cons: Holes align to nothing. Will require customization to use.
Speaker has a bunch of holes for universal fit and had to try a couple of ways and fiddle around to get the right combination. Ended up the only way to get the right fit was using the outer slotted holes in the speaker and the outer slotted holes in the bracket, making it a bit fiddly to assemble nicely. Once together that way, worked perfectly. If door mounting, you'll probably have way more trouble getting the door panels off than anything else (RTFM, baby! And buy some cheap Harbor Freight trim panel tools). door side of the mounting screws are rivet like things that sink into the plastic, so one could over tighten and pull them through, especially if mounting in a slot. I can see why they do this, so they won't interfere with flush. Just snug them until the rivet pulls flush, then get a drop of locktite or fingernail polish on the threads on the speaker grill side, being careful not to get it on the speaker... just a drop, let it wick into the threads.
Pros: Works well Crutchfield install parts usually make installation as easy as it can be, not always easy, but as easy as it can be.
Cons: not real easy assembly in my application, YMMV. If you can't get it, probably should have a pro installer do your work, so it's still 5 stars.
Nice and easy to install!!
These brackets came in handy, but were not an exact fit, requiring some drilling of screw holes in the door, despite what the instructions say.
Pros: Does adapt the speakers to the door holes.
Cons: Were not an exact fit, requiring some drilling of screw holes in the door, despite what the instructions say.
they didn't fit in my envoy
Cons:Crutchfield response on June 10, 2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Great idea, nice they are supplied, but only 2 out of the 3 screw tabs lined up with stock location. Ended up not using, just used self tapping screws to install speakers
Pros: Great idea if they fit
Cons: Didn't fit
Fill in gaps for stock/aftermarket conversion.
Pros: Easy mounting
Didn't work for front or back doors on a 2002 trailblazer
Pros: A lot of adjustments
Cons: Not big enough for the doors opening
I did not have to use these this time but i have had to use these on previous installs and they come in very handy. There's nothing worse than getting your door panels off, and mocking up the new speakers only to find that they're too deep and you don't have any spacers. These are great for spacers and also for use if the existing holes do not line up with the new speaker.
Pros: Easy to use Free with speaker purchase
This bracket worked great after I drilled a hole into it so it would fit
Pros: Fits speaker. Hold speaker in place
Cons: had to slightly modify for 3rd screw to fit
I purchased 6.5" speakers for the rear speaker location in my 2007 Eclipse because when I went to put 6.75" speakers into my shopping cart, I was told they didn't fit my car. When I took the rear speakers out of the car, they were 6.75", and the 6.5" speakers would not fit because the bolt pattern on the 6.5" speaker was too small . I then called Crutchfield, and told the CSR I needed an adapter to put a 6.5" speaker into a hole a 6.75" speaker came out of. I was told these adapters would do the trick. However when I went to install the 6.5" speakers with the adapter on them into the 6.75" hole, I could only mount them with two screws rather than 4. So, these adapters sorta work but are much less than an ideal solution since you can only use two screws to mount the speakers.
Pros: Allows you to mount the speaker somewhat
Cons: Doesn't provide a very good solution to mounting a 6.5" Speaker in a 6.75" hole.
Made the install so much easier
Pros: So glad these were included
