Scosche SAKA-656

Scosche's SAKA-656 brackets will allow you to install select 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in the factory speaker openings of select 2002-up Honda, Nissan, Saab, Subaru, and Kia models. 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.

Pieces of plastic

Written by: G from CA on June 1, 2016

2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good pieces of plastic. Mounts to door properly and leaves enough plastic to drill holes and mount 6-1/2 inch speakers.... -Not really sure who screwed up here, Scosche, Alpine, maybe Me? The product description literally says: "Install 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in select 2002-up Honda, Nissan, Saab, Subaru, and Kia models". Well I actually have a 2002 Subaru and speakers that measure exactly 6-1/2 inches between the mounting holes, these plastic mounts DO NOT accept speakers where the mounting holes measure exactly 6-1/2 inches across. -2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Sedan - Adapters mount perfectly on the front doors (3 way mount) -Alpine SPS-170A 6-1/2 inch speakers - Requires 4 new holes drilled in the adapter, not hard but definitely was surprised -Overall the final result is great and is way better than what I inherited with the car (those same speakers with an incorrect adapter dangling from a single screw). -Everything is tight now and all the mounting points are used.

Pros: -Fits the car great! -They are plastic adapters, they don't adapt to all situations without a little persuasion.

Cons: -Doesn't fit speakers that measure 6-1/2 inches across between mounting holes. -Doesn't include any hardware - hope you have some extra screws.

No good for 5 1/4"

Written by: Gebber from Vancouver, WA on May 16, 2016

2003 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These adapters don't work well for 5 1/4" driver. They leave at least a 1/4" open gap all the way around the driver which really effects the sound quality. I will be making a an MDF adapter to replace these.

Cons:

Does not even remotely fit a 2009 Nissan Altima Coupe

Written by: Greg from Ledgewood, NJ on May 14, 2016

2009 Nissan Altima
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these adapters for my 2009 Nissan Altima Coupe to install JBL GTO-628 speakers in the front doors because Crutchfield recommended them for that year, make and model. When I took the door panels off, the bolt holes on the adapters did not even come close to matching the triangular bolt configuration for the stock speakers. In fact, the plastic adapter rings packaged with the new speakers fit two of the bolt holes; I only had to drill one new hole for a sheet metal screw after installing a layer of Dynamat on the door panel. Please remove these adapters from the "installation gear" for a 2009 Nissan Altima Coupe.

Pros: Made in the USA; actually fit some cars other than Kia Spectra.

Cons: Does not fit 2009 Nissan Altima Coupe (and likely not the sedan).

good fit.

2008 Kia Spectra
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These actually fit w/out modification. Screw holes even lined up and didn't even require any extra drilling.

Pros: good fit

Cons: Kind of hard to line up screw holes w/speaker. Maybe should have used clips, but did not want them damaging the foam surround.

Waste of money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall, waste of money and time.

Pros: They will work but you're gonna waste a lot of time customizing the brackets

Cons: My 6.5" speakers didn't fit. had to drill new holes in the doors and spent more time on them with a dremel than it took ripping the door panels off and actually installing them.

Good oem fit, worked

2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was a good oem fit to the stock speaker mount screws, however the ring is very thin and if it had been wider than I would have been able to screw the actual speaker on better. That's my only complaint, good product though

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They work but they didn't have instructions included or online. It was the only part of a 4 speaker installation that I needed to contact Crutchfield tech support (who were great) about.

Pros: they mount the speakers

Cons: no instructions even online

Adequate but???

Written by: WraithsWRX from Ann Arbor, MI on October 30, 2014

2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These brackets were well packaged and adequate.

Pros: Fit the desired holes on the doors.

Cons: the included screws were too long to use effectively with the speakers to the bracket. i had to use different shorts screw to adhere the speakers effectively. That being said they are installed and working beautifully.

They were free and not needed for my installation in a 2002 Subaru Impreza. Installed 5.25 Sony speakers in the front, mounts came free, but were not required for the installation.

Pros: Free.

Cons: Techs and Crutchfield should know they weren't required and not sent them.

Good, but Lacking

Written by: Tom C. from Waterbury, CT on December 4, 2013

2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were free with the purchase of Sony XS-GT1638F speakers. Mounting the brackets to the car doors was easy. Trying to figure out how to mount the speakers to the brackets required a little improvising. The screws that came with the speakers were to long. Had to drill clearance holes in the door frame so the speaker screws would go all the way in.

Pros: Free with speaker purchase

Cons: Instructions would be nice

2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

these came free with my sons's speaker purchase and even thou they are packaged for a Kia/Honda, they DO fit in a Subaru Impreza. They really made installing the new speakers easy, but there weren't any instructions and the plastic tab area where the new speaker is fastened to is a bit tricky to figure out. After a call to tech support, they explained how to fasten the speaker and it went together fine.

Pros: They're free with a speaker purchase

Cons: no instructions... Had to call tech support

These mounting brackets made installing the speakers both easy and professional. The fact that they were thrown in free of charge just sweetens the deal. This freebie makes the price for the speakers untouchable by any retailer.

Pros: Free, Simple to install, Gets the job done with professional results

Cons: None

Quality was fine. However, there were no instructions included for the brackets. I did need to do some modification to get everything to fit so it would have been nice to have some instructions instead of just winging it,

Pros: quality

What's in the box?

Product Research

Features

Overview: The SAKA656 bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of the factory speakers in select 2002-2014 Honda, Kia, Nissan, Saab, and Subaru models 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 speaker opening of this bracket (if the hole spacing matches).

5-1/4 Speakers: While a 5-1/4 speaker will mount easily in this bracket given the bolt pattern, the frame of most 5-1/4s is smaller than the opening in the bracket, making a 6-1/2 a better fit. When using a 5-1/4, a speaker baffle is also needed to seal the rear of the speaker.

Dimensions:

  • Cutout Diameter: 5.334"
  • Height: 0.512"
  • Three-Hole Spacing (6-1/2): 4.72"-4.85"
  • Four-Hole Spacing (6-1/2 or 5-1/4):
    • Perimeter: 3.85"-3.97"
    • Diagonal: 5.435"-5.575"
