Chrys M. from Middleburg, Fl on 11/20/2016

2003 Ford Taurus SE
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I understand nothing has any guarantee and this is the prime example. It says it fits 6.5" speakers however its not even close to the JBL 638s I bought from their competitor. I'm sure 5.25"s would fit perfect but if you have 6.5"s you'll most likely have to drill additional holes to make it fit or just use some sort of rubber adhesive as I did to one of them just to avoid the work of drilling the other one. I even called the "#1 Customer Service" they said "just drill the holes I guess". I get there's not a whole lot you can do over the phone but I was just trying to make them aware its not for Every 6.5" speaker and he just laughed at me. I needed the product for a build and felt extremely disappointed when I had to modify the adapter myself.

Pros: It fit my door at least

Cons: Had to drill additional holes in the bracket to fit the speakers and due to the way I had to rotate the speaker, I can only fit 2 bolts into the bracket so that it doesn't interfere with the sheet metal of the door. The speaker rattles a bit when the door is closed due to this.

Crutchfield response on December 6, 2016 Thanks to Chrys's feedback, we've moved the notification of potential bracket modifications for 6-1/2" speakers, that was present in the "Details" section, to the main online page for these brackets. We do apologize to Chrys that proper expectations were not set upon talking with our Tech Support crew, and we'll be looking into that as well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well it's just a piece of plastic, so not much else to review. But it fit easy and lined up with the factory holes just fine. It did not have screws to replace factory screws. I used drywall screws which worked but is kind of sketchy. Fit good and solid and support speaker just fine.

Pros: simple good fit

Cons: no mounting screws

mounting brackets do the job

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

they worked fine with my new Kenwood 5.25 speakers in my 2013 mazda 3 sport. I think Crutchfield needs to update its search criteria. the front doors are also 6x8 so i could have used a larger speaker but wasn't given the option

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on March 15, 2016 The customer was correct that the factory speakers in the 2013 Mazda 3 are 6"x8", but our OutfitMyCarT application didn't offer any aftermarket 6"x8" replacements due to the mounting depth and magnet diameter restrictions we measured in this vehicle. So, we showed the customer what did fit with the use of a bracket instead."

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The brackets are as advertised and did fit my vehicle properly. The retaining clips are not very good. I kept breaking them in half trying to bend them so that I could use them. That's for the mid range rating.

Pros: Easy to use and fit properly. Speaker hole/slots lined up and fit well.

Cons: Retaining clips need to be improved. They kept snapping in half trying to bend them so that the screws could be used to hold the speakers to the bracket. Good thing that I happened to have better clips on hand, otherwise I would have had to make a run to the auto parts store to finish the job.

Gilburger from Rhinelander,WI on 4/12/2015

2003 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in a 2003 Tacoma Double Cab. It says to use factory speaker brackets, which I did. The factory brackets have a little tab that either needs to be ground off or the adapter get drill out. I chose to drill the adapter and utilize the tab. Also didn't care for the clips for the screws. Really need to get them just right to fit or they fly off and stick to the magnet.

Pros: Did what I wanted to do, which was fit aftermarket speakers in the doors.

Cons: Pitched as adapters for my Tacoma. Actually just universal adapters that need slight modifications to work correctly.

Works great and the price can't be beat compared to cutting one from sheetstock.

Pros: Real time-saver and allows you to re-use expensive 5¼" units in the less populated 6" x 8" locations.

Cons: Since you'll need 8 screws at each speaker and the vehicle only has 4, you'll need to make a run for some screw/washer/locknut sets but you'd need that even if you made your own adapters.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It worked very well even though I had to get some other screws and nuts to secure the new speackers to the bracket it self because the screws it came with did not have a nuts to secure it correctly, they would just hold the speaker in place and as for screwing the backet to the door I just used the screws that held the stock speakers in place.

Pros: My speakers wouldn't have been able to be installed to my door with out Them, sense my new speakers were smaller than the stock speakers.

Cons: You may have to get some other screws and nuts to secure you speakers to them.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used to adapt 6 1/2" Blaupunkts to factory 6x8 openings. I had to drill some holes to match up with the speakers and the girth of the speakers caused an uneven fit and seal around the speaker which required me to "adapt" the bracket.

Pros: Easy to alter and adapt for different fitment issues.

Cons: Did not easily fit around 6 1/2" speakers for a tight seal.

i bought Pioneer 5 1/4 components so i needed some of these. so i bought them. the hole was large enough to fit 5 1/2 in them. regardless they fit i just had to seal it with some Butyl rubber sealant 1/16 to 1/8 inch space between the edge of the speaker and the hole edge of the adapter then they worked fine.. buying these be prepared to do a lil extra. No idea how my mb quart rear 5 1/4s will fit with these.. ill update when i go to install. they however fit the 6x8 hole perfectly

Pros: cheap durable

Fit in stock location with Boston Acoustic Speakers there is a substantial void when you insert the speaker so there it is not air tight. I would recommend using a cut out made from MDF or HDF to ensure your speaker fits properly.

I took off a star only because the instructions that came with the brackets were a bit vague. Wasn't specific on weather to mount the bracket first then install the speaker or vise versa. I just installed the bracket first then the speaker and worked out fine. This bracket does provide more speaker size/shape options without drilling or cutting into your doors. My stock speakers were 6X8s (oval) and I chose to install 5.25" (round). Once again Crutchfield provided these brackets free of charge with the purchase of speakers! Thanks Crutchfield!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These adapter plates are a super easy and convenient way to get round speakers into an oval opening. I cut off and discarded the cup of a foam speaker baffle and used the remaining ring between the woofer and this plate. I also put a piece of Dynamat on the door behind and around the speaker opening. The result is a phenomenol sounding pair of component speakers. Neat, clean and noise-free install. Thank you Crutchfiled for coming through once again.

Not worth paying for these.

Ya they are great if they come free. But they come with no hardware to install. I used brand new Kenwood KFC1361S with these, the screws that same with the speakers were too small to catch on the plastic. So I had to go spend $4 more for 8 screws. Good thick plastic is about the only plus right now. Since it just comes with 2 pieces of plastic and no screws I would say this is not worth the price!

these adapter brackets make speaker install very easy and they went into my car with no problems. however, they are a bit flimsy and you are not able to tighten the speaker mounting screws very much at all. you can see the slots in the pictures. those slots are where the speaker mounting screws get screwed. it's thin plastic so the strip out very easily. they seem to have done the job so far but you should be careful when using them.

I found the speakers that I wanted but they came in a 5 1/4" size only. These adapters made the installation a lot easier and saved me the cost of having to have custom adapters made.

Good product for undersized speakers into existing locations. If you get them for free you can't beat it. I don't know if the price is a good value if you buy them seperate. But, if you have smaller speakers you need to fit into a current application, I guess they would be just what you're looking for.

Perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The previous comments pretty much wrap it up. They're black plastic plates that adapt 5 1/4 speakers into a 6x8 hole...Mine weren't free because I didn't order speakers from Crutchfield, so the $30 I paid hurt a little, but I guess it was worth it.

Pros:

Cons:

Glad they're free

Bobby from Fort Worth, TX on 9/3/2007

I bought these to go in the front doors of a 2004 Ford Lightning. They seem to be pretty sturdy, but my only complaint woulg be that with a set of 5 1/4" Infinity Reference components there are gaps in a couple places between the mid and the adapter. I used a layer of dynamat on top of the adapter to fill in the cracks. They sound great, and I guess I can't complain too much because they were included for free, but I wouldn't pay $15 for something I have to modify to get it to work right.

Pros:

Cons:

Simple and cheap

These are simple and cheap. They are plain plastic plates with holes in them. Glad they were free with speaker purchase, as I would have feld a bit robbed paying 15 bucks for this.

Features

Overview: The SA68 bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of factory speakers with select aftermarket 5-1/4 speakers. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit. (While many 6-1/2 speakers will fit into the bracket, in most installations new screw holes must be drilled in the door steel to mount the 6-1/2.)

5-1/4 Speakers: The frame diameter of a some 5-1/4s is smaller than the brackets' cutout; in these cases a speaker baffle should be used to seal the rear of the speaker.

6-1/2 Speakers: 6-1/2 speakers with the 3-hole bolt pattern or the symmetrical 4-hole bolt pattern can be mounted using the tabs around the inner speaker opening of this bracket (if the hole spacing matches).

Dimensions:

  • Cutout Diameter: 5.087"
  • Height: 0.154"
  • Three-Hole Spacing (6-1/2): 4.55"-4.865"
  • Four-Hole Spacing (5-1/4):
    • Perimeter: 3.735"-3.975"
    • Diagonal: 5.25"-5.6"
