1995 Honda Civic

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed these with Kenwood KFC-1366S speakers. The grill covers crowded the holes for installing into the rear deck and needed filing to allow the screws to drop through. Also the instructions have you screw downwards to fasten to the rear deck. In a '95 Civic coupe there's simply no clearance to do this - I got machine bolts, dropped them through the rear deck, and fastened with wingnuts from the bottom.

They fit, but with the way they installed the mounting clips were directly laying on the metal of the rear deck of my 2002 civic. May be a problem with rattling if volume is high

Pros: Free. Fit into vehicle

Cons: Metal mounting brackets touching metal of rear deck plate. Vibration could be a problem.

These mounting brackets made the installation of the aftermarket speakers easy, just mount them to the speakers and find the holes that fit your car and thats it. It saved me from drilling or cutting since the factory speakers had 3 mounting holes and the aftermarket had 4

Pros: They fit the factory holes and didnt take long to mount on the speakers

Cons: You will have to play with the bracket to find the holes that fit

Oliver from Lancaster, VA on 11/20/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First of all, without these brackets, I could not have mounted my new speakers in my car. The fact that they came free of charge as part of my speaker purchase was wonderful. The only drawback was trying to install the speed clips on these brackets. One simple little instruction to put a flat blade screwdriver into the H end of the speed clip to spread it apart would have been fantastic. As it was I probably spent two hours putting on the speed clips but they did work very well.

Pros: Without these brackets I could not have installed my speakers.

Cons: Speed clips were a problem!

bass will suffers with these brackets

Tim from Rio Rancho, NM on 3/5/2017

2007 Honda Odyssey

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These brackets leave air gaps. They need some kind of rubber gasket to seal the air gaps or bass suffers. If you need these brackets to mount a speaker, then you probably could have put a bigger speaker in to begin with. Crutchfield says a 6.5 speaker will not fit my Odyssey. They only recommended the 5 1/4 speaker with these brackets. I am sending all this back. The stock speaker in the van is a 6.5, so I will using a 6.5 replacement. The 5 1/4 MTX speakers with these brackets produce far less bass then the factory 6.5 speaker.

Pros: Gives a structure to mount a speaker

Cons: leaves Air gaps, need to add rubber gaskets

Brad from Peoria, IL on 2/19/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Manufacture should have designed the adapter thicker so the threads would be in the housing versus using a metal clip. Metal clips don't allow the speaker to sit flush against the surface creating gaps around the edges. I sealed with silicone.

Pros: Works

Cons: Could've been design better.

Okay so I got these to work with a bunch of turning and guessing. I know they are meant for many different cars but they did not work well at all in my 2005 Homda Element. These were the recommended product but they have no good instructions on how to position them. They are flimsy. But they worked.

Pros: They worked at holding a speaker in a speaker hole.

Cons: Flimsy. Didn't align at all. Had to be slightly modified. Sometimes one size fits all isn't the case. My car has plastic nubs that align the stock speaker but these did not accommodate that. I had to modify the adapter ring because I didn't want to modify my car.

I used these brackets in the rear of my 2006 Acura RSX. The bracket fits the OEM speaker location perfectly. However, when I installed the speed clips, they stuck out too far and the bracket wouldn't fit. I ground off the excess metal, and everything worked fine.

The instructions were not very good. I thought Crutchfield sent me the wrong set at first, so it took me a long time to figure out how to use them. I even called Crutchfield to say they didn't fit.

These adapter plates worked perfectly on my Miata, no modification needed to fit the new door speakers on. I wish the screws that came with them were a bit longer as it was difficult to put the aftermarket speaker grills on, but I managed to make it work. Would recommend and buy again.

Pros: No modification necessary, perfect fit.

Cons: Screws could be a little longer.

Crutchfield customer from Lakeville, MN on 4/10/2016

2003 Honda Civic

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ended up trying to use these with 6.5" speakers, and was able to make it work. Installation in the 2003 Civic Sedan rear deck was not as simple as I would have liked, but given I was using 6.5" instead of 5.25", I can't complain. The holes to mount to the read deck were right on. Would be nice if they were recessed a bit with the flathead screw that sits flush with the top of the bracket. This would make for a perfect fit for both 5.25" and 6.5" speakers.

Pros: Holes all line up as expected. Can't beat free

Cons: Screws for installing to rear deck don't sit flush with top of bracket.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

they do the job. screws just barely catch in the clips they could be 1/4" longer, at least one screw in each adapter is stripped. good low-profile adapter though, does the job but is not rugged by any standard.

Pros: low profile, free/included, clever design to maintain stock grilles.

Cons: screw length/clip holding power is non-existent. as long as you install once and leave alone it'll be fine, but if you dismount/remount several times this could be an issue. would I buy again, yes.

It works. Fits perfectly on the rear speaker mounting. Did have to work around it to get the speaker screws through the mounting. The opening of the mounting is too tight for all the speaker screws. Just don't tighten the speaker screws on the bracket. Put the bracket with the (loose) speaker into the mounting, then tighten all screws. No holes drilling needed.

Pros: Good quality. Easy to use, great fit

Cons: Needed to work around it

Speaker mount needs help

MarkH from NE Texas on 11/29/2015

2003 Honda Element

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

To fit our Element, we had to add foam layers because the clips didn't allow a snug and proper fit. If these mounts came with some type of gasket or offsetting material, they would be much better when installing replacement speakers.

Pros: Strong, secure mounting of the speakers to the adapter

Cons: clips for screws cause mount to not sit flush, and require additional material to make the fit secure and more functional

I won't go into heavy detail. They were a perfect fit on the front door speakers of my 2002 honda civic lx - clean install. The rear speaker brackets I feel like I had to play with the different screws for everything to fit right. To properly install in my car, you really do need a power drill for rear speakers.

The do the job. Instructions were clear, and they were easy to use. Only complaint is they don't fit flush against the vehicle. This creates an air-leak between the speaker and the vehicle. Most times, this won't matter, but if you are really fussy about stuff like that, then avoid these.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The mounts are great. However not perfect. They are for general use on several models and cars. Note that these will not fit the car specifically. You need to improvise or drill holes into your car door. Note that also tightening only 1 screw should be enough, however is not recommended. 2 or more is better. Or you drill into your car door and tighten all 3 screws. Either way it is better than trying to customize the Honda Civic factory bracket.

Pros: - Free - Something to hold your speakers. - Customize able - Comes with a lot of screws and connectors

Cons: - Does not fit a Honda Civic 03 dead on.

Very disapointed

Dave247 from Orange, CA on 3/3/2014

2004 Honda Civic

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The point of this adapter should be to eliminate the need for the average Joe to drill holes to install the speakers. Should have bought 6" speakers and ditched the adapter. 6" fit perfectly but you have to drill holes to mount the speakers. Had to drill holes anyways to mount (recommended fit) 4.5" rear speakers in 2004 Honda Civic with this obnoxious adapter. (Stupid extra part) Do yourself a favor and remove the old speakers first. Measure the opening and order the correct size speaker. This will save you a headache assuming this adapter will help the install go smoother.

Pros: It was free. I guess if you follow the recommended speaker size, which is much smaller than the opening, you'll need something to fill the gap. This is probably better than most items you have laying around the garage.

Cons: Holes on the plate don't line up with anything. Basically had to use tech screws and make new holes.

Great little brackets although I used my own hardware to mount the speakers and brackets.

Pros: Simple usable brackets to start off your installation.

Cons: Hardware with brackets may or may not work for your vehicle.

Brackets for 2003 Mazda Protoge 5

Harold from Virginia Beach, VA on 7/21/2013

2003 Mazda Protege5

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

after messing with these for over an hour, and calling Crutchfield support, I finally just chucked them into the trash can and drilled holes and made things fit. These brackets were useless in my application. When I used the provided clips and screws, the screws protruded thru the bracket, and would not allow the speaker to fit into the opening in the door. Good thing these are "free" with your order.

Pros: nothing

Cons: wasted an hour trying to make them work

Did these help me install my yes...but not as smooth as I thought. Still had to go to hardware store to buy other materials to make it work.

Pros: It was provided for free...Could not install the Polk speakers I bought without these adapters. The speaker wire adapters were perfect.

Cons: None of the hardware provided worked for my application no insulation material provided to reduce vibration The clips were a headache

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works but leaves gaps between my door and the adapter plate. I would actually recommend just drilling the holes in a 2001 Kia Rio and not using these; either or though, the mounts work, they just are not flush.

Pros: Free with purchase, works for my doors.

Cons: Does not mount flush because of the clips.

Works well for 02 Odyssey - front speaker install

Doug A. from W Springfield, VA on 6/24/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works well for a front speaker install using 5.25 speaker size, however, it required some careful planning using the brackets in the stock location - not quite as easy as the rear panel install. Front install required drilling new holes to secure the speaker brackets. This is ok since no one will know once the speaker cover is replaced. Overall, this brackets works well for an 02 Odyssey, front and rear panel install.

Pros: bracket size fits perfectly in the stock location using 5.25 speaker size.

Cons: require some careful planning/thinking

These worked great in my application. I used 5.25 inch speakers. I don't know if they would have worked well with larger speakers though.

Pros: Came with everything needed to complete the installation.

Cons: Plastic is a bit flimsy. We'll see how well it holds up.

difficult to mount the speaker. then after I got the speaker installed, the speakers flange blocked the mounting holes I need to use. In the end I was able to make it work but it the design needs much improvement. I could see a lot of people giving up.

Pros: the mounting hole did match my car's

Cons: difficult to mount the speaker to the adapter. After I finally got the speaker mounted on the adapter, the speakers flange blocked the mounting holes I need to use. In the end I was able to make it work but it the design needs much improvement. I could see a lot of people giving up.

This item did not fit my cars rear deck as stated on the website. 2003 Civic Hybrid - also be aware that the installation of the rear speakers are a huge extensive project for this car. The removal of rear seat, side paneling, rear deck panel. I might have paid to have this installed if I had to do it over again.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I spent hours trying to figure out how to align the holes with the bracket to those of the speaker. NONE of them did. Plus, I didn't find the bag with the RIGHT length screws until I had finished finessing the speakers into the doors. I ended up finding two of the holes that went thru the bracket and the speaker to fit in my old mounting holes. Directions were vague and worthless.

This kit is a waste of time. It's difficult to attach to the speaker, and once attached, the speaker covers up the holes that the screws attach to the car through. Give them a try if they're free but otherwise don't waste the money.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The 82-7500 bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of the factory speakers with select aftermarket 5-1/4 speakers. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Dimensions:

  • Cutout Diameter: 5.095"

  • Three-Hole Spacing (6-1/2): 4.6"-4.9"

1 question already asked

Q
Has anyone found a way, using 6.5" speakers with these brackets, to put them in the door after following the instructions? The adapters cover about 2/3 of the screw head that is supposed to go into the door clips. I'm going to try tomorrow putting the adapter in the door first, and then installing the speaker on to the adapter, but hoping someone out there can provide me with their workaround for this.
