Scosche's SASCN656 brackets will allow you to install select 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in the factory speaker openings of select 2002-up Hyundai, Nissan, Mini, and Scion 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.
Priced per pair
Not much to say, they do what they're supposed to.
served the purpose generic spacer
Pros: easy to attach speakers to spacer
Cons: wish they included self tapping screws as this turned out to be the easiest way to install
When I was buying my speakers the website stated that it came with mounting brackets. I was thinking they would be direct replacement to hold my speakers in place. But no for the 2004 Honda accord you need to drill holes in your car door to install this bracket. It almost made me return the speakers because I'm not about to drill holes in my car just to install speakers. I was lucky enough to think of searching and was able to find direct mount brackets online for the 2003-2006 Honda accord. These are the ones that Crutchfield should be sending with speakers to all Honda accord owners. Don't know why they don't though.
Cons: They don't fit and need to drill holes to install no thanks
The actual adapter itself does seem like it would do its job. The only issue I have with it is that it does Not fit unless you decide that you want to go and drill holes to make it fit. This should not be labelled as fitting if you have to drill out holes just to get the adapter to work and defeats the purpose of an adapter in the first place as far as I'm concerned.
Pros: I don't actually Have to have this installed for my door speakers to fit. They are however only held in by two screws on the opposite sides of the speaker instead
Cons: Labelled as fitting but does not fit
While these Scosche adapters were part of the free installation kit that came with my Kicker 5 1/4" speakers, I ended up not using them. Not sure if Honda's front door clip-on speaker mount design is unique, but these Scosche were nowhere near an exact fit and would have required drilling new mount holes in the door. I am sure that this would have been the case if replacing the factory 5 1/4" speakers with aftermarket 6 1/2". However, since I purchased a pair of nice sounding Kicker KSC 5 1/4" speakers, a little work with a Dremel tool allowed me to cut out the factory speakers and reuse the factory clip-on mount and it worked out beautifully. I'll be hanging on to the Scosche adapters as I'm sure they come in handy elsewhere in another vehicle.
Pros: They were free
Cons: Not an exact fit for '05 Honda Accord EX as drilling into the door would be required
The mounting bracket is not vehicle specific. Meaning you have to drill additional holes into metal with the correct size bit. If you don't have a drill, you have to rent or buy a drill then get the correct size bit so the original bolt will fit. Its a nightmare. And you can't use the original mounting bracket then it all must be secured tightly as to not vibrate.
Pros: Cheap replacement
Cons: Drilling holes, not tight fitting, vibrates
These show that they fit a 2005 Mini Cooper S, well, they do not, unless being held on by 2 screws counts as fitting correctly. Had to severely alter to even use for temporary use as I have found some adapters that were made for the 2005 Mini Cooper s. That and the adapter did work correctly with the speakers I have purchased, to small.
Pros: Makes installs easier
Cons: 50/50 you may have to alter the adapter to make it work.
Brackets worked out swell for my 2011 Altima.
main reason why i buy from Crutchfield. they provide all the necessary parts so you don't have to deal with best buy or other installers. i was able to use this product to have my new speakers fit perfectly. i did use sheet metal screws to securely place this bracket to my door frame.
So easy to use perfect fit for my car. Used on a Mirage 2014
Pros: Perfect fit, easy to use.
These mount your speakers the way they should be mounted. maintains factory positions and bolt holes. Works great
Pros: These mount your speakers the way they should be mounted. maintains factory positions and bolt holes. Works great
Cons: lots of really long screws and hardware seems overly complicated. But thats what makes it universal.
First time Crutchfield let me down. Ordered just these brackets that "said" they would fit my SAAB 93 Aero doors, I already had a couple six and a half inch speakers, paid shipping and everything and the brackets were not even close. Not wanting to pay postage again, I am stuck with them, a total waste of money. As I said, this is the only time Crutchfield has let me down.
Pros: Well built
Cons: Wrong onesCrutchfield response on October 5, 2015 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to help the customer. We'll either help him get the bracket installed correctly, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
These are not a direct fit for Mini cooper. You will have to drill to put them in the door.Also these will not fit all 6.5 inch speakers I tried to fit a set of speakers in and the cage was too large had to dremel some plastic out to get the speakers to fit.
Pros: will work in a pinch with some self tappers just remember put something on to prevent rust where you just exposed raw steel.
Cons: Not a direct fit. have to drill into door. may have to modify for some speakers.
Reading the instructions Crutchfield supplied warned me some drilling was involved. These attach to the door with three screws each and twisting it around I could get two screws to line up with the existing mounting holes and I had to use one self drilling screw for the third. Thankfully I have a garage with some stuff like this in it so I did not have to run out and buy screws.
Pros: Simple to install
Cons: Better instructions as to how they mount and some supplied screws would have been nice.
Worked perfectly for mounting door speakers in my 2003 350z.
Pros: Worked great
I don't know what else I would have used to mount my speakers since this apparently "fits" on my 03 Accord LX. I had to drill holes and this came with no screws so if you're looking for an easy installation then good luck with these pains in the butts.
Cons: Drilling holes and no screws
The Scosche SASCN656 worked perfectly in my 2006 Scion Xb.
Pros: Exact Fit
Cons: No problems.
The hardest part about install is trying to align this in the right position. The margin for error is low. If you don't get it right, your door might not go on and then you have to drill new holes. You can do it in one try. Here's the trick. Before removing your old speakers, use a permanent marker and trace around it. Then when it's removed you have a much better idea of where the adapter should go.
Pros: It worked. Speakers fit perfectly.
Cons: Instructions from Crutchfield say to use included screws, but none were to be found. You need patience to align it and drill holes.
Came with my order for my 2004 350z Speakers in the front doors. Did not fit. Had to buy other spacers. You could use these but you'll need to drill these on your door.
Pros: Does not fit.
Cons: You can make them fit by drilling.
Did work for my application with a little extra work.
Pros: Did work well with Polk audio speakers.
Cons: Had to drill holes in door for mounting.
Although the speaker adaptors seemed to be well made they did not fit into the front door positions on a 2006 MINI Cooper S. Others with this same car had them work but after 45 minutes of trying to make them work it was clear that they were not fitted for my car.
Cons: Did not FitCrutchfield response on February 24, 2015 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Worked fine to install front speakers on my 350Z. Had to drill new holes in the door to mount the bracket, and the holes in the bracket to mount the speakers werent quite lined up for my speakers. I'm glad these were free with my speaker purchase, because I would have been a bit upset if I would have paid for an adapter that I STILL had to modify to fit my speakers and car. Brackets should be direct drop in, plug and play, no drilling required.
Pros: Worked out in the end Free with speaker purchase
Cons: Still had to drill holes
These were recommended for the Scion XB and I'm not sure why. The front fit ok, but there was still a lot of room to work with, and I still had to drill new holes to mount. The rears absolutely did not fit properly. Only 2 of the 3 mounting holes would go into the original positions, and if you're using anything larger than a 5.25' speaker requires some creative attachment techniques to these adapters.
Pros: Made well
Cons: recommended & holds speakers but you have to drill new mount holes.
Perfect for what they were designed to do. Easy to use. Well made.
Pros: Heavy duty plastic. Well Made.
Cons: Absolutely no directions whatsoever
Does what it is supposed to do
Tremendas, funcionaron súper bien con bocinas polk audio y mi carto Tremendous, they functioned really well with my Polk speakers and my car
Cons: NoneCrutchfield response on December 23, 2014 Translation provided by Crutchfield's Spanish Sales & Support team. Visit our new Spanish-language site at www.crutchfieldenespanol.com.
It did not fit
Pros: Good mounting bracket.
Cons: Unfortunately it did not fit right.
It fit the speakers I ordered and it pushed the speakers out far enough duo that they didn't hit the wind shield but they where no where near the factory mounting bolts. I had to drill and thread new holes since I wasn't going thrue the trouble of returning the product
Pros: They got the job done. Pretty good plastic material.
Cons: No where near factory position for the mounting bolts.
The brackets made it a snap tp install the Kicker two-ways into the 2004 Altima front doors. We only had to drill new mounting holes, however, we were able to use the factory mounting bolts again (10mm by the way). They put the speakers at the correct height to match up with the door panel alignment. Great product!
Pros: Easy to use Fit perfect No cutting or modifications required Kicker install screws fit into brackets to securely mount the speakers into bracket
Cons: Would have likes some fresh mounting bolts
The product appears to be well made, however, the information about what vehicles it is compatible with is not accurate.
Pros: Well made adapter - nice price too
Cons: Reference information for fit to the vehicle is incorrect.Crutchfield response on June 2, 2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
These are a must have when installing speakers in a 7th gen accord! You may have to do some drilling but that's normal with new speakers
Cons: Some drilling is required
Perfect fit for a 2004 Mini Cooper. They were perfect. All mounting hardware was included with the mounting adapters. No problems here, excellent product!
Pros: Contains everything needed to install door speakers. No problems installing speakers.
These worked like a charm. The plastic was nice and thick and they were very sturdy. Remember these are universal so you may have to be creative with some modifications depending on your application. They fit nicely in my 2005 Honda Accord Sedan.
Worked fine to allow for a 5 1/4 speaker replacement for the factory 6 1/2. After reading a few reviews, I was expecting to make a few holes so no surprises there. Happy with the results.
Pros: Affordable Easy to Use
the easiest way to install your speakers. Thank's
Cons: With out drilling the unit will not fit
These speaker brackets were nice but the holes did not line up for the 2009 Altima Coupe. Matched one hole out of three and had to drill the other two. Not a huge deal but would have been nice for all 3 to line up.
These are not a direct fit and require you to drill holes into the frame of your door and attach with screws (screws not included). The online instructions and the instructions that (don't) come with it don't tell you how to install and I had to call and talk with 3 technicians to get that figured out. I thought they sent me the wrong adaptor brackets. For the 2003 Honda Accord front door speekers there are no screws involved, there are 2 clips on the bottom and a compression clip on the top.
Pros: Crutchfield gave me a full refund.
Cons: Not a direct fit No instructions No screws
These speaker mounting brackets are wonderful. A friend and I installed Alpine Type-R 50 Component Speakers in my 2007 Honda Accord EX-L V6 with these. They worked perfectly. I recommend that you use self tapping screws from a hardware store for ease of installation. They make the installation a breeze.
Pros: Works Well with Self Tapping Screws Works Wonders for installing speakers Works with Speaker Baffles
These speaker mounting brackets are 100% universal fit. They will not align with the holes in your car door, so be prepared to make new holes. I used #10x1/2" self tapping screws with a #10 SS washer to install and it work great. The speakers I installed were 6.5" speakers, which mean I had to remove the entire inner upper rim of the adapter so the speaker basket would lay properly. This is semi-easily accomplished with a straight tin snip or a tile nipper. I used a utility/box knife to clean up the edge. Downside is that there is no outside upper rim, so your speaker screws you will need to pre-drill. Overall, it wasn't that difficult a process and installation once I had all the tools and hardware. The brackets themselves are approximately 7/8" inches in height, so be sure to factor that into your speaker choices.
Pros: Sturdy for their use, universal, easy to install
Cons: Needs an exterior rim, not just an interior for 6.5" and larger speakers; multiple tools required to make the speakers fit.
ATTENTION: THE PEOPLE THAT ARE GIVING THESE A 1 STAR RATING AND SAYING THEY DONT FIT, DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. I purchased these for my 2003 350Z since they OEM speaker has the bracket built in and I didnt want to destroy the original speaker to reuse the bracket. These are universal meaning some modification is required. All you have to do is align these over the pre existing hole and drill self-tapping screws then youre done. I mounted Polk speakers and all the screw holes lined up and I was on my way in about 10 minutes.
Pros: Universal fit Speaker holes lined up perfectly Perfect gap, doesnt hit my window
Cons: Would be nicer if it had 4 holes instead of 3 2 of the holes are too close to the bracket itself so the screw went in a little crooked.
Did the job.
Pros: It works.
Adapters worked great mounting door speakers.
Fits perfect, no instructions but if your drilling holes in your door you shouldn't need them.
Pros: Easy. Strong material.
Cons: No instructions (for beginners)
basically used them as a spacer, none of the holes matched to the 04' Accord, modified them with drill and my own screws, when you are in the middle of a project you learn to make it work. speakers also didnt match to them, this too had to be modified. once i was done they acted as a spacer
Pros: good specer, good quality
Cons: what do they fit?
Product works great considering not many options on market for universal fitment and arent flawed in almost every way. This product worked great and I will definatelt be buying a set for the wifes car!
The website said it fit my car. I spent a good amount of time working with it and my other parts but never could get it to fit the right way... Ended up cutting out my old speakers guts and using it as a frame to screw my new speakers in.
Unfortunately these parts are universal so it required additional drilling to fit my make and model and some of the holes that needed to be drilled were on angles which made installation a bit painful due to the drill bit slipping left and right.
Pros: The speaker sits flush in the hole.
Cons: The mounting holes aren't vehicle specific so drilling can be a bit cumbersome.
Brackets fit the speaker to the car mounting hole. The mounting screws supplied did not fit well. Ended up going to the hardware store to get speaker to bracket and bracket to car hardware. Very disapointing.
Pros: Made the speakers fit.
Cons: Hardware provided was inadequate and needed to be substituted with real nuts, bolts, washers and screws.
did not work with the speakers i bought, the the speaker diameter exceeded the mounting diameter. thought mayby they sent the wrong size,nope 6 1/2.
Pros: i recycle!
Cons: did'nt work for me!
This item was listed as a needed item for a 2011 Outlander Sport (Non-Fosgate) vehicle. Bracket did not work as I expected. I could not use these mounts. I had to get 1 package of 1/2 spacer rings and cut the rings into 4 peices and use that way. The major problem with these is the 3 bolt pattern and the OEM speakers. The OEM speakers are a twist lock in on 3 points. It is hard to find a spot on the metal door where the bracket will sit flush and not be trying to use the large twist lock spots.
It would be nice if crutchfield would include some mouning screws and samples of installations past. I wasn't sure which side should be inside, but I finally got it on. I placed a sheet of 1/8" foam packing sheet between the door frame and the bracket to act as a gasket (reduce vibration).These are sheets you might use to pack china for a move. On my 2007 Accord 4 door it was difficult to find a place where the three screw holes hit the door flush and on solid metal. One I found the spot, I marked the 3 holes for drilling with 1/8" bit. Once I got it on, it was pretty solid. My speakers (Blaupunkt GTX652SC 6-1/2" 2-Way SpeakersItem #: 023GTX652S) didn't line up well with the spots on the bracket so I just drilled holes with a real thin bit and screwed them on with the hardware provided by Blaupunkt. I used some of the packing from as a gasket between the bracket and speaker frame. I'm glad I got them on ....sound great. Even though these are inexpensive speakers, they are miles above the Honda OEMs.
Pros: Once you find a good spot to attach, they seem pretty firm.
Cons: No instructions or help anywhere. No mounting screws....
The ONLY reason I give these 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of hardware to mount these into your car. As far as the brackets themselves, they are very easy to use. There were no instructions, but it is pretty straightforward to use them. The holes for the speakers are right on, so no issue there. I used these in my 2003 Accord doors, and they worked perfectly. As I said before, the package contains only the brackets, and there is no other hardware included. That might be for a specific reason, but I don't know why some sheet metal screws of self-tapping screws could not be part of the item. Otherwise, good product, and I am glad Crutchfield included these for my speakers!
Pros: Made speaker installation flawless.
Cons: Would be nice if they came with hardware.
This bracket was included with my speaker order for front door installation into a Nissan 350Z. The mounting holes of the bracket do not align at all with the holes in the door. I don't believe Crutchfield actually has a compatible bracket for the 350Z front doors. I wound up making my own out of the old speaker/bracket.
Speakers fit fine into these brackets. I did have to drill new holes into the front door of my 06' Accord (Was warned about this by crutchfield before purchase) and because of this, I worried about the speakers lining up perfectly with the door panel. But, if you trace an outline around the stock speaker bracket before removing it, then line the new bracket up with the outline and mark your holes where they sit the most flush with the sheet metal, the whole process is much quicker and easier.
Pros: Would use again
[Used on 2010 Altima Sedan, Front Doors] These are OK but not great. Had to drill new holes in the doors in order to mount these adapters. Once mounted, the new speakers (KFC-1664S) fit directly onto the adapter rings without modification. Of the entire process, drilling the 6 new holes for the adapters was the most tedious piece of work. As I recollect, the new speakers would not have mounted correctly without the adapters, so they were a necessary evil. Nothing in the remove/replace sequence was difficult and adding/mounting the adapter rings came with the territory. If you think drilling 6 new holes is too much to handle, maybe you ought to let an audio shop do the work for you. BTW, the six screws that Nissan used to mount the original speakers are self-tapping -- I re-used them to mount the adapters (which don't come with their own screws).
Pros: Could not have mounted the speakers without the adapters.
Cons: Having to install these adapters.
These brackets require that you redrill the holes if you are using them for a Nissan Altima. That is just not cool. So I modified them by gluing them to a set of mounting plates I made from lexan.
Well, these are suppose to fit a Nissan but they do not work that great for a 350Z. These brackets will require some drilling and modification to mount on a 350Z. Honestly, a better pair of brackets could have been used or given instead of these.
Pros: Thick plastic so you do not have to worry about snapping or breaking them.
Cons: They did not work great for my specific car.
does not have pre drilled holes that line up with the factory holes in the doors from the original speakers.
Pros: they will work....... ( if you own a drill)
Cons: you have to drill for mounting the spacer to the door and drill to mount the speaker to the spacer. Also has a strange shape for no apparent reason.
great speakers....thought that they would fit into the facotry speaker holes with the bracket provided as the online catalog said they would fit with a bracket...should make clear that they fit with some modification ....no big deal ...just a suggestion ...had to mount with some self tapping screws but again ...the speakers sound great !!
Pros: sound gat
Cons: need bracket to fit into factory mounting holes for ease of installation
Not a close fit, 3 holes instead of 4 and was easier to modify the existing brackets than to use these.
These worked great for the spacers on my Mini Cooper. Easy install with these spacers. Thanks Crutchfield for including them in the price!!
These adapters are complelty wrong for my 2004 Mini Cooper S. I called Crutchfield technical support and was reassured they were the correct adapters for my car. The technician told me to go ahead and drill into my door metal to make new holes because they didn't line up.
I used the "Outfit My Car" on website and was told that this would fit. When i tried to instal on my Nissan Altima 2010, the holes for the screws did not match up. I called tech support and was told that these infact are not a perfect fit and that i would have to drill new holes....there goes my Saturday morning..not a happy camper here.....
These were sent to me to be used with Infinity Reference speakers in the front door speaker location, but they did not fit in any way. I was no able to mount the speakers to the spacer or the spacer to the door. NOT recommended for use on a 350Z!
These were sent for a 2002 Mini, but they did not match either the speaker or the holes in the Mini. I used them by drilling extra holes.
These were no use to me for my 350Z. I purchased a set of these, as recommended by Crutchfield, to facilitate the install a set of Infinity Reference 6022si in the door locations of my 04 350Z. They came in a bag with no install instructions what so ever. I mated them up to the door hole and then the speakers and no go. I'm fairly intelligent but I just couldn't figure out how to install them. I ended up going to the 350Z Tech site for some guidance. There I found a better way to install my speakers without an adapter at all. I don't recommend these for the 350Z.
Overview: The SASCN656 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 speaker opening of this bracket (if the hole spacing matches).
5-1/4 Speakers: The frame diameter of 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.

Had to drill new holes to make these work in my Nissan Altima 2012 sedan (front doors). But they eventually worked pretty well - one I could get all three screws in with a lot of "fenaggling", but the other I had to stick with only 2/3 screws because it just wouldn't line up close enough to get the screws in right (without breaking the mounting brackets).
