Very poor fit in my 2006 Acura RSX
2006 Acura RSX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
These were a poor enough fit that I made my own mounting brackets from MDF to get the proper depth. Here are the reasons: 1) Too tall: The stock speakers are 1" tall to the lip that pushes against the door panel. These rings are 1" tall - by the time you've mounted your speakers, the assembly is pushing the door panel out & the speaker surrounds are in danger of hitting the grille. 2) Easy to mis-align: The brackets have little squares on the corners to line it up in door cut-outs, but the cut outs are way bigger than the alignment squares. You have to hold them at the top of the door cut-outs for proper alignment. If you let them slide down, the ring around the grille in the door panels will be on top of the speaker's surround - not ideal for many reasons. Directions were wrong: The directions showed having the square alignment features "up", when they needed to be "down", and didn't show how to align them to the door cut-outs at all (like the person writing the instructions had no clue what the alignment tabs were for). This would hold the ring off of the door panel & make aligning the speaker to the grille ring on the door panel almost impossible.
Cons: Too Tall by 1/4" Bad instructions poor fit on alignment tabs (they're too small)
