Diagrams needed

Crutchfield customer from Florissant, CO on 4/22/2019

2009 Subaru Forester

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

Didn't come with any instructions or diagrams

Pros: Heavy duty plastic

Cons: Lack of diagrams & instructions makes installation a bit frustrating. Nothing shows how to align speaker bracket & there's no cutout for the speaker wire, so it gets pinched between the bracket & the door.

After a few weeks of searching I finally found the perfect product for my rear doors. I have a 2018 Subaru Forester XT Touring, on hear and everywhere else there is no product that works for this location. Perfect fit.

Pros: It fits.

Cons: Not recommended.

Fits car slots, not speaker

Sid from West Palm Beach, FL on 12/1/2018

2007 Subaru Forester

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

As a universal adaptor, it works. It has the correct outside diameter and slots that match the screw holes in the car. The 6 1/2" speaker I used is slightly oversized compared to the factory fittment but Crutchfield indicates good fit. The factory housing this replaces was angled to point towards the listener - this does not. The bracket has tabs that allow it to work with 5 1/2" speakers so those get snapped off. The 8 holes around the perimeter have molded tubes so the provided screws will bite into and hold. These holes were not outboard enough for my speakers, so the speaker baskets needed to be slotted about .200" each hole. This plastic is soft enough to be easy to use so screw torque is light - started pulling though the plastic at about 10 inch-pounds. Supplied screws are long so they have to be trimmed to get the bracket to fit flat against the door panel. So, a little disappointed in the soft material, neutral angle, and mounting holes - but it did allow me to install my speakers using this as a base and modifying the speakers instead of creating a proper bracket from scratch.

Pros: Universal

Cons: Requires modifications to speaker basket Not angled like factory fittment Soft material can't take much screw torque

Crutchfield customer from De Graff, OH on 9/3/2018

2013 Subaru Legacy

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

I believe these would've worked with most 6.5" speakers (they fit my mtx terminator 653s, but were not for them) but they were sent to adapt Rockford Fosgate R165x3, which Crutchfield listed as fitting like they're 6.75" so I had to cut off the normal tabs on the inside and screw new holes into the outer ring. So they worked for me with a bit of modification.

Cons:

works well with some modifications

Sean from Arlington, VA on 8/6/2018

2009 Subaru Outback

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

worked well in 2009 Outback. holes lined up with the door mounting holes. as far as mounting the speakers onto these adaptor rings and with most rings I would ignore the holes that some with these and instead line up the speaker so that you can fit the speed clips, install them, and screw into them instead. once you have a good orientation for the speaker and the clips are all snapped on go ahead and predrill small holes through the clips and screw in the speakers. those metal speed clips are going to hold better. the screws that come with new speakers are generally too long so either pick up some shorter screws or dremel off the ends of the screws to the whole assembly can sit flush with the door. finally drill a hole in the top side of the bracket so you can route the wire. the factory plug on the front doors is on the interior side of the door. this bracket does not have that hole predrilled. and don't forget your foam gaskets

Pros: lines up perfectly with factory door holes requiring no drilling on door proper depth to mate with door and give rear clearance

Cons: missing side hole for running speaker wire to the inside of the door

Speaker adapters

Robert from Pine Hill, NJ on 6/24/2018

2010 Subaru Outback

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

Fit my 2010 Subaru Outback like Crutchfield said, Metra's website said it didn't. Needed to snap off all the mounts inside the main assembly which took a minute to figure out. Feels like decent material that will hold up. Now the down side, the mounting holes required some strange angles since they didn't line up with the holes in my Focal speakers very well. Also the website (Crutchfield and Metra) mentions it comes with 8 screws, the bag did not list them on the contents and it didn't come with them, so I had to use the Focal screws which were too long for this adapter, so the hang out of the bottom, but mounted my speakers at least. I would've simply gone to buy more appropriate screws if my car hadn't already been disassembled when I realized this. Other than this they do what their job is.

Pros: - Solid material - Fits as advertised

Cons: - No screws included - Holes misaligned for my speakers

More details on the Metra 82-8900 Speaker Mounting Brackets

Product Research

Features

Overview: As of 8/30/17, the 82-8900 is compatible with select 2003-2014 Subaru models. The bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of the factory speakers with select aftermarket 6-1/2 or 6-3/4 speakers. (Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.)

6-3/4 Speakers: For a 6-3/4 speaker to fit in the opening of this bracket, the tabs around the inner speaker opening need to be removed. They are scored along the bottom for easy removal, but still may require pliers and a file.

6-1/2 Speakers: 6-1/2 speakers with a 3-hole bolt pattern, Ford 4-hole bolt pattern, or symmetrical 4-hole bolt pattern can be mounted using the tabs around the inner speaker opening of this bracket.

5-1/4 Speakers: While a 5-1/4 speaker will mount easily in this bracket given the bolt pattern, the frame of a typical 5-1/4 is approximately 1/2" smaller than the opening in the bracket, making a 6-1/2 or 6-3/4 a better fit. When using a 5-1/4, a speaker baffle must also be used to seal the rear of the speaker.

Dimensions:

  • Inner Diameter: 5.748" (not accounting for the inner tabs)
  • Height: 0.807"
  • Four-Hole Screw Spacing (6-3/4):
    • Perimeter: 4.266"-4.538"
    • Diagonal: 6.091"-6.370"
  • Three-Hole Screw Spacing (6-1/2): 4.545"-5.027"
  • Symmetrical Four-Hole Screw Spacing (6-1/2 or 5-1/4):

    • Diagonal: 5.266"-5.781"
  • Ford Four-Hole Screw Spacing (6-1/2):
    • Minor Axis: 3.690"-4.127"
    • Major Axis: 4.545"-5.027"
