Metra's 82-3412 brackets will allow you to install select 5-1/4" or 6-1/2" speakers in the factory speaker openings of many 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.
Average Customer Review(s):
Pros: Good fitment
These mounting brackets DO NOT fit the vehicle! I had to fabricate my own.
Cons: Do NOT fit!!
Installed in nissan versa s sedan 2016 with kicker 300 watt speakers. Year later each mount has a broken ear.
Pros: Cheap, easy to break.
These did served but only after using a Dremel tool to modify the holes in the tabs so they would fit the OEM mounting points.
Glad they fit they car. Should have called the technical support number because there were no clear instructions as the location. I had to swap the speaker brackets after completing the job because the left front window wouldn't roll down. Felt like a dweeb.
Pros: Fit vehicle and speaker application
Cons: Unclear instructions for location
Correct depth and worked well installing 6.5" 2-way Infinity Reference speakers into 2014 Mazda2 Sport front and rear doors. Appreciate that Crutchfield includes them for free as the list price for this plastic ring is borderline. With a bit more time and effort, repurposing the OEM bracket and harness would work fine, but is less convenient. Minor annoyance: As is the case on many door panels, the apparent speaker grill is fake; the actual opening is smaller. But when mounting this correctly centered on the door, the speaker is NOT centered to the grill opening. Thus, some of the woofer edge to one side is putting sound into the back of the door panel. Could point the finger to Mazda or Infinity or Metra or Crutchfield, but no one has taken it upon themselves to offer a fix.
I held these up to the door and the speaker and they were not a match to either. I decided to modify the stock speaker mounting for a cleaner fit and install.
Cons: Was not a drop in replacement
I'm not sure who dropped the ball here, Crutchfield for thinking these would fit my car or Metra for a stupid design. They literally suspend the speakers over the hole - no seal, no baffle, nothing. It's nothing but noise cancellation, as there's no way a speaker could produce any air pressure with the lack of a seal. They're currently in my recycling bin.
Pros: They're plastic, so they're recyclable.
Cons: Not designed at all for this car (Honda CRV).
Perfect fit for 2006 subaru outback
Nice and easy
Didn't fit my application. Used brackets supplied with speakers instead
Pros: May fit other vehicles
Cons: Did not work with my 2015 Ford F150 Supercab, rear doors
These adapters worked well for the front doors of Ford Transit but not rear doors. Still trying to workout which ones will fit in rear...
Pros: quick and easy adapter.
Cons: holes didn't line up 100% but luckily they have some give to them.
These came with my order for free. So I can't complain. But they are a hard, brittle plastic. Not ideal for vibration dampening. The stock brackets (glued to the speakers) are of a semi-rigid, but also malleable, rubber. The stock brackets seem to do a much better job of sealing the speakers, dampening vibration and preventing an annoying buzz-- these, not so much. If I have time, I will have to reverse my entire installation procedure, purchase better quality brackets and reinstall. With popping a door cover and drilling holes, this not ideal. Butter to spend a few bucks and use quality brackets the first time-- these are not it.
Pros: free, fit, did I say free?
Cons: brittle, low quality plastic, cheap and cheerful, seem inclined to split or crack with any drilling or screw use. My entire speaker purchase choice hinged on adapting brackets that worked. As it is now, the stock paper speakers and their included rubber mounting hardware is better. I would completely pick another set of speakers (different size that better fit my Honda Civic) if I knew that this was a compromised choice because of low quality, buzzy brackets.
For starters the screws that came with the speaker are too long. They will mount the speaker to the ring but protrude out the back 1/4". I would have to drill another hole in the metal to give the screw enough room. The other screws are too short for anything other than mounting the ring to the door. Ok, that's done. But how do I mount this speaker!! What fasteners?? Also, it came with speaker baffles. I've been all over the website and all over Google and I can't find one thing that tells me how to mount the baffle. Does it go between the door and the ring? The ring and the speaker? Behind the door? What's the stacking order here people! It seems this is a generic ring that is for a variety of speakers. Ok, fine. But I need more information here. I called tech support and my talk with them was basically unhelpful. All they wanted to tell me was that it doesn't matter which clips and screws are used where, anything that I have to do to mount the speaker is Ok. I have the ring screwed to the door but I really have no idea how to put this speaker on. I'm stuck and Crutchfield has not been any help. They don't tell you how the parts go together here. You guys have made me hate this process so far. I hate this crap!
Pros: I suppose it works, if I can only figure out how to get it mounted
Cons: Poor instructions, poor help from the tech support guy. Does not use Honda mounting holes that are already there. Have to drill holes, OK, but where, and the mounting ring at what orientation. What screws to use where ??? What clips to use where??? And don't tell me it doesn't matter where they are used!Crutchfield response on 4/11/2017 We were sorry to hear about Wayne's experience and our mix-up with Tech Support team.

These do not fit a 2006 Honda CRV, front or back. Not sure why they would suggest these to customers. I suppose you could mod them enough to work but if you were going to make that big enough effort, just use stock plastic mounts and modify with wood rings like I see on an online video site. I certainly would like to see pictures of these being used on a CRV. I would give this Zero stars!

As others have stated and I knew this prior to purchasing this did require a self tapping screw to complete the installation. I have a 2007 Legacy and it fit perfectly and have had no issues installing this and the speakers.
Pros: Thick quality plastic
Cons: Required self tapping screw, not really that hard to do though.
Super easy had to drill one hole in the door. Took 2 minutes for then good to go
Cons: Need to drill one whole
Made installation of my speakers a breeze.
Terrible. Kind of work. 2/3 holes lined up.
Did not come close to working on my 07 Legacy as claimed. After extensive modification, I used them but......
Cons: Don't fit.Crutchfield response on 1/9/2017 Jay, we're sorry you had problems with these brackets. Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our tech support team right away. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.

Great product, easy install and fast shipping. Best price I could find as well.
Pros: Fast shipping, easy instructions, great price, quality product, great shopping tools.
Helpful adapter, not perfect but able to make it work and sit flush with only one hole to drill.
First of all, there was no information included with my order (2 pairs of speakers, different sizes) as to which set of mounting brackets was for which speaker. I spent upwards of 30-45 mins trying to install the rear speakers in these before realizing that it was the wrong set of brackets. After finally figuring this out, the instructions for mounting the speaker to the adaptor were completely lacking. It says something to the effect of "mount speaker to bracket." Wow, really helpful! What the instructions don't tell you is that you'll need to break off some of the tabs on the adaptor bracket to get them to fit on the door panel of the car. Even after breaking off extra tabs, the fit is still poor, and you need to drill holes in the door to install the bracket.
Pros: Free with speakers
Cons: Poor fit, terrible instructions, have to drill the door panelCrutchfield response on 12/7/2016 Jake, we're sorry you had difficulties with your installation.

Didn't fit, not really. No installation instructions so I had to go it on my own. Had a hard time ,holes didn't line up . Apparently there are no instructions for a 2013 ford escape. Still have the front door to do. So wish me luck.
Cons: No instructions no clue what to do, holes don't line up.

nice product-should work well
Pros: well made
Haven't actually installed them yet because on the first try they didn't fit. One hole location on the tabs is off by about 1/4" so will have to file it out and put a brace across the two tabs, which luckily it has to use.
Pros: So far looks like it will fit in the car location.
Cons: Not a perfect match for the hole alignment
Made the installation very easy.
I gave it a 2 becatse it did well by matching 2 holes with the car door considering its a 1 size fits all. But the screws provided dont hold the speaker on. I tried and the speaker fell off within the first week. I had to buy new screws that were thicker and longer and its held it up.
Cons: Poor instilation
Nice product, but the mounting holes didn't line-up exactly. I needed to perform a few modifications in order for them to fit properly.
Cons: Not an exact fit
These brackets allowed me to use a slightly larger speaker than the originals. Worked great and installation was a snap.
Pros: Worked great
These are solid adapter plates. They just do not fit the 2016 versa. The holes did not line up with those on the vehicle. Two holes lined up which is not enough for a secure mount. I had to fab my own for the front due to the mount depth of the speakers I installed but incorporated these plates and drilled all new mount holes.
Pros: Solid plastic rings for vehicles they fit.
Cons: Did not fit the 2016 versa.
These are great brackets for a clean, factory style install. Ordered these for a 2016 Ford Fusion and used them in all of the doors. Make the speakers fit like they should. Took longer to remove the door panel than it did to mount and wire the speakers.
Pros: Makes install easy and factory looking without having to modify the vehicle.
Cons: cannot think of any
Fit was perfect, made the overall install easy!
Pros: product was as advertised
Great add on to the speaker purchase. Other sites wanted to sell more expensive ones for additional cost, not Crutchfield!
Pros: All hardware was included, easy mount to factory location/holes.
trimmed tabs off that I didn't need and drilled 3 holes in door. speaker fit fine. was unsure about the drilling so I called customer service and rep walked me through the steps. all I had to do was trace original bracket with a sharpie and apply bracket over to see where drill holes went.
Pros: easily fit to stock opening
Made installing aftermarket door speakers a snap. Highly recommend these for any door installs.
Pros: Fit speaker perfect Tabs give options for drilling new holes Instructions perfect for anyone even remotely handy
The brackets fit pretty well - they have no problems going into the hole in the door. You have to spin to adjust where the attachment tabs will go to make sure you find a flat spot to mount them. I was able to get two flat mounts and one "less than flat" and it worked well. There was no issue getting the door cover back on. Mounting the speaker in the bracket was a very tight fit (the screws nearly had to point in to mount, but with a little time and effort, it worked.
Pros: Overall, no issues using this. It included all of the hardware needed to complete the job.
Cons: Screw mounts for speaker were a bit tighter that I would have liked, and since the bracket is a "fit many" type, it wasn't a perfect "fit" for the fit. With that being said, it worked fine.
Did not fit a 2001 Honda Civic DX. Had to drill the door panel to align holes and tabs. Fairly fragile, brittle plastic construction. Looking thru the teviews, it seems fitment is an issue with many vehicles.
Cons: Doesn't fit the vehicle specified.
Good thing these were free, then again it may be why they are free. If you own a 2006 Honda Crv do not get these as they don't work without having to modify the crap out of them, all outer mounting tabs are way too long no matter how you position it. Had to go buy smaller screws to mount the speakers on to it because the ones sent would bottom out on door panel, and I wasn't drilling any more holes. What should have been a 30 minute job took 2 hours, that was for 1 door, I still have the other one to do and stopped out of frustration and will tackle other one tomorrow. These may be universal for other Honda models, just not for a 06 Crv !
Pros: May work for other cars.
Cons: Does not work on 2006 Honda Crv EX the way it should. Have to modify.
I bought 2 sets of these and they both have broken apart and crumbled, especially at attach points.
Pros: very universal
Cons: break very easily and aren't durable for even basic installation
The way it is designed could be a lot better. The screws work ok, I used some self-tapping ones, which work better, but not provided. On a Versa, be prepared to drill a new hole in the door. The way the speaker sits on bracket could be better, maybe with some silicone provided, one seemed the plastic flexed.
Pros: Space it out not to interfere with windows.
Cons: Screws, design.
the adapters did the job for sure but the way the screws self tap into the bracket leaves me wondering how they will hold up over time. the clips for attaching to the door holes in the nissan application were useless.
Pros: made install much easier
Mostly bummed they don't give 8 screws to hold the speaker onto the bracket. They give 6 and expect you to use 3 per speaker. The holes line up perfect that you could use 4. You will have to "eyeball it" and see how it will fit best. It does not just sit where the old speaker bracket sat. For the front doors of my 2001 Honda Civic 4-door, I cut the 2 longest tabs with a hacksaw (instead of snapping or breaking them off). Make sure there are NO wires or wire harness behind where you plan to drill. After I had everything centered up and where I wanted it, I had to rotate the bracket a few inches so I would not drill a wire harness on the backside.
Cons: The brackets don't just "Go" where the old speakers went You may accidentally cut or drill your wire harness when mounting 6 instead of 8 speaker mounting screws
WORKED GREAT , had to make extra holes but worked great.
Needed these to replace the cheap factory speakers that came with my 2012 Ford Fiesta with a pr. of Kicker speakers. They are well made, easy to install and much needed. Couldn't have installed the speakers without them. They are priced well and shipped quickly and cheaply.
Not much to say other than these brackets make speaker installation a breeze.
Pros: Speaker install was a breeze
Glad they were included. No way the original equipment bracket would have worked. Thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: Perfect fit
Love Crutchfield! Always has what is needed and it always works! Rock on!
2014 Ford Fusion, had to have them because Ford refuses to join the real world. Thankfully they mounted on the stock holes using the stock screws with zero drilling in all four doors, so no complaints from me. They are built well enough and hold the speakers tight as a drum. What else you need?
Pros: Free! Sturdy Fit stock locations with no drilling
Cons: Only that I need them at all.
Ford seems to want to make it difficult to replace their odd trapezoidal shaped radios and speaker mounting holes. These brackets were needed to install normal sized speakers, bye Ford cheap paper whizzer cone speakers.
Pros: Thanks Crutchfield, you know what you're doing and made this speaker install easy.
This is the only website where I can find the brackets in the US. Fits in my 2012 Ford Fiesta with no problems. sturdy plastic too so I didn't worry about breaking them.
These adapters are not remotely functional. You will have to do a tremendous amount of trimming and drilling to get them to work. The OEM equipment is the speaker integrated into the bracket. It has a metal clip in the top center and once that is popped, you can easily lift it out at a slight angle towards you. This bracket is not even close to representing the original bracket. There are several steps you need to do to make these work, first, take a sharpy and draw an outline around the original speaker then remove it. Take a dremel tool or something similar and cut off all the tabs. I used a 7/64 drill bit. Place the bracket within the template you drew with the sharpy and drill at least two holes through the metal frame to attach the bracket to the frame. Once that is complete you will also need to drill holes into the frame at all points where the speakers are mounted to the bracket because the suppplied screws protrude about a quarter of an inch. Or you can purchase shorter screws. I chose to drill the holes because now there were 3-4 additional points that held the speakers to the door so no rattling.
Pros: Gave you a point to mount the speakers to the bracket
Cons: Tons of fabrication to make them work. If you are expecting a plug and play operation, this is not it.
This would be an ok product if it fit my 04 CRV but it doesn't come close.
Nice to get something free that will make replacement Easy.
Had to do a few modifications but it worked well and they were free.
Pros: free. did the job
Cons: a little mod was needed
Made install easier.
Pros: Easy to install speakers
Cons: Not a perfect fit, but usable
Too Bulky and did not fit!
The bracket idea is good but the once that came with my speakers that were matches to my car were too big.
Pros: Free with speakers
Cons: Wrong size
The actual plastic bracket was okay, and it fit, The direction indicated to "break" the tabs that are not needed, but I see no way to do this with out a cutting tool. Also the provided speed clips and screws were garbage. I had to use larger screws to get the bracket to fit onto the stock mounting holes.
Cons: missing required hardware, speed clips and provided screws are garbage.
These speaker adapters make changing out stock speakers to bigger, better speakers a breeze.
Pros: Free! Easy to use, and did I mention Free?
Screw pattern in my 6.75" alpine speaker didn't work out that great. Screws were right along the edge of the ring and almost split the ring of collar. They also stuck out so far they are really close to a flange on existing door panel that makes me worry if woofer will come in contact at high levels.
The spaces for the screws did not line up for either sets of speakers to the bracket itself, but 2 secs with a drill and they were perfect.
Pros: Easy fix. Durable product. Would use again.
Cons: Pilot holes not universal. Again, it was a simple fix.
Fit well but needed a little configuring to set it in place.
Pros: Fit well was figured out configuration/
these were included with my purchase of Alpine 5.25 2 way speakers, for a 2015 Nissan Versa Note. The brackets did not fit this application without further modification. I needed to cut slots into the bolt holes to make these fit the car door.If I was a novice, this would have proven challenging. Crutchfield has always provided me with great installation kits and instructions in the past. This is the first time I have purchased from Crutchfield and did NOT have a simple installation. I think a little more research for this model vehicle may be in order.
Pros: nicely made, variery of hardware was included
Cons: Did not fit my application with out futher modification. "Universal" but may require modification.
Made my speakers fit right. I broke off the tabs and did not use the clips. I just screwed them right into the doors.
Pros: Easy to use
Just attach the speaker to the bracket and use self tapping srews to attach to cars. Fast and easy!
Pros: Fast and easy
I bought the metro speaker mounts for my 2013 Nissan versa. It says that they fit which in part is true but they do not fit completely unless you make an extra hole on the door panel or just use 2 screws. But even with 2 screws they are not wobbling around so they are pretty descent mounts just wish they were more of a flawless fit. Sorry if I was a bit contradictory.
Pros: They do fit
Cons: They don't fit perfectly
Mount fit speakers
Pros: Fit speakers
Cons: Some drilling required
Perfect fit in my 07' Honda Fit, had to snap 2 tabs off each ring...you can do it by hand. Screw the speaks to the rings, drill a few hole in the door, screw the rings to the door and you're done. I did all 4 doors this morning in under an hour.
Fit my '99 Toyota Corolla just fine; thick and durable plastic construction.
Pros: 5 mounting eyelets allowing for flexible mounting and sure to fit at least three holes on your door. Sturdy plastic construction.
So, a customer service representative shipped me an order because i explained that i received the wrong product. The catch is that It may have been my fought. Not only that, but enclosed were an instruction manual (that was printed and detailed)I didn't ask for detailing step by step instructions on how to use the product. The manual was researched, not from the manufacturer. Thank you guys. Oh, I got the shipment in 2my days
Pros: Expeditious, informative, patient, couteous, respectful, helpful, easy to contact.
Cons: Dont have a instantaneous teleporting molecular modulator that ship orders in a milisecond
Made installation easy
I was totally bummed when I removed the old factor speaker and saw the odd shape. I thought I would need custom fabricated brackets but I found these on Crutchfield. The mounting holes didn't all line up but apparently it was said in the documentation that I may have to drill a new mounting hole. (I missed that part) Other than that I am happy. I only used two of the three mounting hole because I didn't want to drill in the car. Seems to be okay.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: May not line up exactly causing you to drill.
Great product to have when up grading from the factory speakers!
Cons: Easy installation, very straight forward. Quality of product was good!
I didn't end up needing them but the quality is good. Strong, beefy plastic. I would up giving them to a friend who used them in his Volkswagen.
Pros: Solid construction, versatility.
Cons: You will probably need to do some cutting depending on where you are putting them. Not really a con, just a side effect of the design being for so many applications.
The mounts are great. Fit the Honda Civic in the back perfectly.
Pros: - Free - Something to hold your speakers. - Customize able - Comes with a lot of screws and connectors
These brackets are really beefy and feel likegreat quality.. And best part is the were free
Pros: Free, great quality
Good job guys!
Adapted speakers perfectly for the non-standard cut-outs in my Prizm. Took some trial and error to find best way (orientation) to mount speakers to them. Also, my trim panels would not fit over them without cutting off all of the extra tabs. But they fit just right.
Pros: Fit my openings perfectly. Could not have installed speaker without them.
Cons: Had to cut every one of the unused tabs off to get flush fit.
I got these these for free with my speaker purchase for a 2007 Subaru Legacy. They are not direct fit! I had to do some modifying so the wouldn't bounce off the door. I couldn't get a flush fit from the bracket to the door otherwise there would be a gap between them without modification. What can you expect for free I guess.
Pros: Free with purchase.
Cons: Not direct fit for my car.
Got these with 2 pairs of Kenwood Kfc-1665s speakers. They were included for free by Crutchfield. These are a must for installing on a 2012 Ford Focus. Very simple to use. Didn't have to chop up factory speakers to install the Kenwoods.
Pros: Simplicity of use.
Great item, fast shipping, perfect packaging. Why 3 stars? Did not fit the 6 1/2 Kicker speakers I bought them for.
Cons: Do your research and ask more questions!!!! I didn't!
These were the recommended speaker adapters for my daughters 2004 Honda Civic EX. Crutchfield warned me that drilling was required, which it was, but that wasn't all that was needed. The Honda factory door speaker had no screws at all, rather a clip on the top and two slots in the bottom. This makes for easy replacement of new factory speakers but a challenge for after-market speakers. I read on one of the Crutchfield reviews for this item when used on a Honda Civic that installation went smooth until reinstalling the door skin that no longer fit. Armed with this knowledge, I had to first trace around the factory speaker to find the "center" of the speaker hole. Then I had to cut off the two "large" tabs on the bottom of the bracket and about half off of the top "large" tab and install the speaker onto the bracket with screws that came with speakers. I also had to cut the screws that held the speaker to the bracket so that they didn't extend past the bottom of the bracket. Then I aligned the speaker bracket with the factory trace left on door, marked holes for the two small tabs on bottom of bracket and the bottom half of the large tab on top. Using the supplied door clips wasn't an option. I had to us the screws supplied with the bracket as sheet metal screws to attach the assembly to the door. So be very carefull when choosing a drill bit. Using this proceedure I was able to install my speakers and still have the door skin properly fit. Thanks Crutchfield!!
Pros: Strong, sturdy bracket. Worked well with modifications.
Cons: Wasn't really made for Honda cars. But Honda doors are not at all made for aftermarket door speakers either.
Used these for installing Infinity Speakers in a 2007 Honda Fit. Did still require drilling into the vehicle to mount the brackets, but the existing speaker locations clearly weren't designed for aftermarket speakers (small hole in door for speaker and non-standard mounting points). For this vehicle, you need the brackets to prevent interference with the speaker terminals / magnet (reduce depth of speaker in door by the thickness of the adapter). For the back doors, I needed both these adapters and the ones supplied with the speaker to get the required clearance.
Pros: Mounting flexibility.
I had no trouble replacing my stock speakers using the mounting brackets.
Pros: Perfect for my Infinity Reference
Cons: I had to drill one new hole in both doors; these brackets don't align perfectly with the holes made by the car manufacture. Not a biggie for me.
I thought they were cheesy didn't hold the speaker in place very well
Cons: Did not do a good job of holding speaker in place
I have a honda civic.2004 sedan and I used these brackets to hold in my 6.5 kenwoods and yes the hold them in and the screw in to the door fine but the problem I had was putting the door back together I had a big gap underneath my door, so I had to break off some of the brakets so their will be no gap and after I did that it wouldn't close all way theirs still a gap but not as big.
Cons: door has a crack on it
First: These brackets require you to put a little time and effort into your speaker installation since Honda gave us such awkward speaker openings from the factory. You do need to drill into your door. I installed these in my friends shop and was very happy I did. I ended up using the supplied hardware from my Polk Speakers as to mount the speakers. Then used nyloc nuts and bolts to mount the bracket to the door. Best option in my opinion. Please take your time orienting the speaker with the bracket!
Pros: Got my speakers in!
Cons: For most DIY'ers it may seem like a really huge hassle with these brackets. But not really any other option for Civics.
Not a fan of the idea of having to drill new holes in my car for these brackets. Not to mention the screws to secure the speaker to the bracket requires spacers because otherwise the screws make it harder to mount the speakers in the door.
The brackets fit perfectly in the vehicle, however the speakers that these came with, MTX TN653 did not directly fit. The hole pattern in the speakers did not line up with the hole pattern on the brackets. I had to drill new holes. Also, the brackets should have been supplied with screws since the speaker supplied screws were too long. Overall minor issues, but still caused extra work.
Pros: Fit vehicle door perfectly
Cons: Had to modify for speakers
Mounting Speakers to adapter was not that bad, but mounting to door was difficult. Holes did not line up well, had to drill 2 hole for each bracket, had no groves to allow wires from speaker to connect to car wiring ( wiring was not inside door frame, but outside of plastic sheet of door).
Pros: Ok for price.
Cons: Instructions very vague, no wiring access from speaker.
While eventually we were able to use these brackets, it was only after we were forced to use a bandsaw to remove tabs along with some excess plastic in order to allow the door panel to fit back on. But the brackets as they were did not fit the car at all, they were simply too big. Something that should have take a short amount of time took much longer because we had everything set to go and then realized we couldn't get the door panel back on.
Pros: Eventually, you may get your speakers installed.
Cons: It won't be an easy process.
I can't really complain about these, as they were free, but I had to drill mounting holes to get them to fit. They also caused the speakers to sit a bit too high.
Pros: Free, allowed speakers to be installed.
These fit the door well! My only issue is, since you aren't using the original speaker hardware and since you have to drill new mounting holes, it would be nice if this kit included some self-tapping screws for mounting to the door.
Pros: - Fits the door well - Speakers were easy to install in brackets
Cons: Does not include mounting hardware for the door
To anyone complaining about the included screws or not fitting the contours of their specific vehicle: the purpose if this product is to get speakers not made for your car to fit in your car and/or to add a spacer for vehicles where clearance is an issue. As a professional car audio installer I know that there is no such thing as a "perfect fit" when it comes to customizing anything car related. The purpose of a product like this is to allow the speaker to be mounted at all, whereas without it would not be possible. It is up to your own experience and creativity to make them work for your specific vehicle. If the hardware included doesn't work for you (which you shouldn't expect anyway), find hardware that does. Just realize that this product is not labeled "everything you need to install 6 1/5 inch pioneer component speakers into a 2001 Honda Pilot". This is a universal product. If you don't know what you are doing, don't blame the tools and products you are working with, blame your lack of experience.
They work as described. Good quality as well.
Pros: Make those speakers fit!
I used these to mount some Polk Audio db's in my 2002 Honda CR-V and was confused by the easy mount clips that came with the harnesses. In my case, turns out all you had to do was drill your own holes into the door and use the screws that were included. Once the confusion was set aside, it was a breeze to install. As long as you make sure everything is screwed together tightly, you'll run into no vibration problems (assuming you're not using these to install high-performance, competition-grade speakers) or speakers falling out in your door panel.
Pros: Includes everything you need but the speaker itself, doesn't rattle for standard aftermarket speakers
Cons: Installation instructions are a tad confusing
If your looking for Plug and Play - Good luck, it's just not out there... if you have some skills then these will work fine for you. I had to cut off the two longer tabs (which the instructions say to 'break off' any unused tabs), then I drilled holes in the door for the three smaller tabs, put some weatherstripping on the back for cushioning and attached them with screws... worked great!
Pros: Nice quality brackets for 5 1/4" speakers.
Cons: Certainly not plug and play like folks are looking for, but if you are creative you can make them work.
These were great in replacing the door speakers in my 2012 Fiat 500. The only thing I could have asked for different would have been some regular nuts instead of the speed nuts - - they just won't work with the existing hole on my car. You instead have to get behind the door liner and hold a nut to the back of the speaker while screwing them tight from the front. Once I did that, these provided a perfect fit to replace the factory speakers.
Pros: Perfect fit to replace factory mounting bracket
Cons: Speed nuts could not be used in my installation.
These didn't fit into my Honda very snug and the screws that came with it were too short for a secure fit. I did the best I could.
Did not fit on the 2008 Honda Fit for which Crutchfield said they would work. Since they were thinner than the OEM brackets I had enough space to rotate and bend them to get them to finally work, but they are certainly not appropriate for this car and do not sit flush against the door. Frustrating experience...
These one-size-fits-all adapters made mounting challenging on my '04 Honda CRV. The instructions weren't that helpful. Eventually I hit upon the following solution: I removed all the tabs from the adapter, drilled four holes in the door, then used the screws that came with my new Kenwood speakers to mount the adapter (without the tabs, the screws that come with the adapter are useless). That's the only way the adapter will sit flush with the door surface. Then I could mount the speaker to the adapter, using some screws from the hardware store. Some make/model specific instructions would have made this a lot easier.
Pros: They work, and they came free with the speakers.
Cons: Challenging install, needed different screws, vague instructions.
This was shipped to fit a mini cooper. They simply do not fit, they fot the speakers but not the car.
The mounting brackets worked fine, but were pretty make-shift. The contours of the metal around the speaker opening in my doors did not allow the bracket to sit flush at all. I used some special acoustical foamboard as a backing which was incredibly tedious to cut to fit snug against the various contours of the door panel (this is more Honda's fault and also mine for having OCD about the install quality). I had to drill new holes in the door to install the bracket, and the speaker then screwed directly in the plastic casing of the bracket. The fact that this bracket is for multiple makes and models reminds me of those tee-shirts that are labeled one-size-fits-all but are just size XXXXL. Sure it fits... just not well.
Pros: Allows me to install 6.5" speakers in opening designed for much smaller speakers in my 2004 Honda Accord Coupe 6MT
Cons: Install is not as simple as a custom bracket would have been. I would have paid more for a better product, but I simply couldn't find one for my Honda. Also, I really would have liked to use the factory screw holes.
Crutchfield said that these brackets would fit my Nissan Leaf, but that is only if you drill new holes in your car door. The holes just don't line up. Completely the wrong part.
Pros: did not use.
Cons: did not fit. did not use.
These came with my Boston Acoustics, but did not fit my Saab Viggen at all. I called Crutchfield tech support, and he was very friendly and tried to help, all he could offer was to send them back and try something else. We weren't sure what that would be, so I made the original brackets work . Just had to do some drilling through the plastic bracket and the door metal. Speakers sound good, I'm happy.
Adapters work, with some minor drilling to the metal on the doors and some moving and slding around for fit, but they help with window placement.
Does not fit Sony XSGTX1641 speakers.
Honda has make their factory speakers custom with custom mounts. Their outer speaker housing is plastic and it just snaps into the door sheet metal. This bracket fits a generic template and new holes needed to be drilled. I wasn't sure the door panel would fit until after mounting the speaker. In the end it went fine, but drilling holes in the wifes car with the boss watching me wasn't fun. I was afraid that I might need to sleep in the truck.
These brackets were used to install Pioneer 6.5 door speakers. The brackets did work although it did require drilling to mount these in the metal of the door. I would say they did the job. The job itself was not too hard. The hardest part was figuring out how to take the door panels off.
This is a universal adapter that will likely need to be modified to fit a specific vehicle. If you're handy with some basic tools you should be able to make it fit. I too was disappointed it was not a direct fit for my car, but after a little work I did get a solid fit in the front doors of my 2005 Honda Accord.
My 6.5 inch pioneer speakers took close to 2 hours to install in the front doors, and most of that was modifying and improvising these speaker brackets to mount properly on my 1998 Toyota Corolla. My brother helped me with the installation, and we had to use at least four washers that were not supplied with the bracket or speakers in order to mount the speakers in the doors. We had to dig around and find our own washers first. Yes, we were able to do it, but the unexpected problems with these brackets easily doubled the total installation time. I imagine that this problem will apply to the 98-2000 Toyota Corolla models. You won't realize the problem until you get the door panel off and get well into the installation process, and suddenly you realize that there is no way to secure this speaker bracket to the car door without washers. I wish I had taken pictures to post but I didn't realize I would be writing a review and I don't want to take off the door panel again.
Only two of the tabs lined up with the screw holes in the door. The third hole had to be drilled - not an issue, but the instructions should suggest that some modification may be required. Since the drilled hole did not have a lug for the threads, a screw with washers and a nyloc nut was used.
These were shipped as part of an install package for a 2007 Honda Accord EX-L. The speakers used were the JL Audio TR600-CXi 6-1/2" in the front doors. This adapter has no mounting points that are even close to lining up with the door shape on this car, and the adapter's thickness is about half of what it needs to be to allow the speaker to screw to the adapter and then sit inside the door properly. The basket of the speaker hits the hole in the door long before the outer flange of the speaker contacts the adapter.
These brackets are marginal at best for a Honda Accord. They did not line up well with the hole in the door for the speaker. If I was going to install door speaker again I would probably try to make my own brackets so the fit would be better.
Installed 4-way pioneer speakers into very thin doors on a 2009 Subaru Legacy. These rings, when oriented in the correct way, only required having to drill 1 hole in the door. I just broke off the extra tabs that weren't needed (made it fit better in the Subaru). Very simple to get installed, and without them the speaker would NEVER have fit in there. Overall good speaker ring considering it is probably for like 100 different vehicles.
At first it took awhile to figure out the best way to utilize this bracket with a 2009 Honda Ridgeline. I ended up needing additional hardware and I would also highly recommend the adhesive weather stripping foam available at the local hardware store to create a better fit. The foam fills the unique contours of the door frame and provides a tight seal.
Rec'd these free with my order to replace the factory front speakers in my 2005 Subaru Outback. Needed to modify both brackets by drilling holes in the extra long tabs and then snipping off the extra material in order to get the door panels back on. This added an extra hour to my install in order to get everything right. I wasn't happy, but not dis-satisfied enough to send them back (since my car was already tore apart!)
These did not fit the factory holes in my car. Even with all the mounting holes you can not turn it to fit correctly. I ended up being able to use 2 of them and then having to use a screw to mount the the third hole. This was disappointing, when I am told something fits I thought it means that it fits not that it works.
I used these adapter brackets to mount Polk DB521'S in the front doors of my '07 Accord. Just as the Mastersheet states, you have to drill holes (3) for each door to mount the adapter. I used self supplied half inch long self tapping screws to mount the Polk's speaker frame's four mounting ears to the bracket first, then I used three one inch long scews that come with the Polks to mount the bracket with the speakers attached to the doors. Relatively simple, just a bit (no pun intended) more work to drill out the holes. Then I used some touch up paint in to the holes to help prevent rust. Also as stated in the Mastersheet I removed the unecessary outer mounting ears on the bracket. One tip before drilling the new mounting holes around the speaker hole in the door panel, stuff a plastic bag in the cavity to catch the metal shavings that would fall in to the bottom door channel from drilling. When done drilling carefully pull the plastic bag out. Good product overall.
Didn't fit a 08 Honda Fit. I did have to use the spacers but, had to drill holes in both the bracket and doors to make it work. Not a huge deal but, do not assume these are "plug and play."
These help out a lot when installing new front door speakers in an 04 Honda Accord. The spacing that these give helps for getting the new speakers into the grill area in the door panel. Plus since they came with the speakers the price was real good, called FREE!!! A real value added for when mounting in new speakers.
Don't even try to mount the speakers with these mounts, or the ones that come with Infinity 5022i speakers. They're too thick to fit under your Civic interior door panel.
The brackets that I need to install my Alpine SPS-17C2s were in the box with the speakers. I just threw these away.
In order to use these with a Suzuki SX4 you have to re drill all the holes in the doors.. It is very easy to do and these adapters fit well and work great.. Makes the install very tight and has a great factory look..
These adapters allow after market speakers to fit in the factory holes in the front doors of a 99' Corolla. Without these you would have to jimmy-rig your speakers up and hope they don't fall out when you hit a bump. My only complaint is that the nuts and mounting bolts that came with the adapter didn't fit the factory holes and I hade to use some rivets instead.
These little ditty's did what they are designed to do. You don't need to be a professional fabricator to get them installed but you do want to be aware of your wire placement and speaker alignment in order to get the correct placement and maximum length out of your speaker wire adapters. I had to pull off one of the large tabs on each to fit it properly in my Toyota Corolla. Also if you need to drill new holes for them, be really careful not to overtighten the sheet metal screws. I learned the hard way and had to redrill one side after I stripped one of the holes
These speaker mounting brackets will be needed to mount aftermarket speakers into my '17 F150 doors. These brackets along with the wire connector adapters come with the purchase of the MTX speakers. This makes the whole ordeal of replacing speakers a breeze. No drama. [ Marc Oct 06, 2017 ]
