Scosche SAC-656

Scosche's 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.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

1999 dodge dakota

Written By Kamal, Arizona on Monday, July 27, 2015

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

Cons: Fitment

Still had to drill my own holes. Not a huge issue, but was still needed. Clips didn't fit as well.

Pros: Free

Cons: Still need to drill.

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.

Junk

Written By GL, Virginia on Saturday, July 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Free

Cons: Flimsy, leaky, lots of hole patterns but none fit.

Meh...

Written By Jeff w, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Terrible fit for Forester

Written By Chris, NM on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Not Even Close

Written By CoreyC, Central New York on Monday, June 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Free

Cons: Doesn't fit

Fit is OK.

Fits OK in the door of my 2004 Colordo. Re-uses one mounting hole, and requires drilling two holes for provided sheet metal screws.

Pros: fits

Cons: requires drilling

2003 Nissan Frontier

Written By 808surf, Kailua,HI on Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

So generic but did not match

Made things easy

Written By Serg, Georgia on Thursday, June 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

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.

Not quite...

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.

Not worth the money

Written By Cameron, Iowa on Thursday, June 11, 2015

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.

Works well, but a bit fiddely

Written By knudsen, Indiana on Thursday, June 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.
