They Don't Fit - I Threw Them Out

Bob from Reno, NV on 1/9/2017

2006 Acura RSX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These brackets don't fit my 2006 Acura RSX. There are two holes at the bottom of the door for mounting the OEM speaker. Two tabs on the bracket fit into these holes to locate the bracket. The instructions don't mention these tabs, and the drawing shows the tabs in the wrong position. I wasted some time figuring this out, and two other reviewers had the same problem. The brackets are much too tall/thick to fit. The OEM speaker is actually a speaker/bracket assembly. See figure 8 on page 5 of the Acura RSX Master Sheet. It's 1.05" thick, and it seals against some foam on the inside of the plastic door panel. The SAH6 brackets are 1.04" thick, and the mounting flanges on my Polk DB652's are 0.35" for a total thickness of 1.39". That's 0.34" too thick! I didn't discover that the door panel hit the speaker until I put everything together and tried to snap the door panel into place. I had to tear everything apart and start over. I didn't want to risk a messy job of cutting the door panels to make clearance as at least two other reviewers did. The Polk speakers came with some thin adaptor rings. I was eventually able to make them work, even though they should be thicker. I threw the Scosche SAH6 brackets in the trash. I've been buying from Crutchfield for 25 years, and I've always been happy. Not this time! Since 2010, two thirds of Acura RSX owners that reviewed this product reported the same problems, and Crutchfield is still selling a br

Crutchfield response on January 30, 2017 Thanks to Bob's insightful review, Darren, our vehicle integration buyer, teamed up with our Vehicle Research team to research this application again. They found that another bracket would be more appropriate for this vehicle and have made the change in our database. We're sorry for the problems that Bob had, but his input was crucial for us to upgrade our vehicle information.

Very poor fit in my 2006 Acura RSX

Sh4veD4ve from Idaho on 10/8/2015

2006 Acura RSX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were a poor enough fit that I made my own mounting brackets from MDF to get the proper depth. Here are the reasons: 1) Too tall: The stock speakers are 1" tall to the lip that pushes against the door panel. These rings are 1" tall - by the time you've mounted your speakers, the assembly is pushing the door panel out & the speaker surrounds are in danger of hitting the grille. 2) Easy to mis-align: The brackets have little squares on the corners to line it up in door cut-outs, but the cut outs are way bigger than the alignment squares. You have to hold them at the top of the door cut-outs for proper alignment. If you let them slide down, the ring around the grille in the door panels will be on top of the speaker's surround - not ideal for many reasons. Directions were wrong: The directions showed having the square alignment features "up", when they needed to be "down", and didn't show how to align them to the door cut-outs at all (like the person writing the instructions had no clue what the alignment tabs were for). This would hold the ring off of the door panel & make aligning the speaker to the grille ring on the door panel almost impossible.

Pros: None

Cons: Too Tall by 1/4" Bad instructions poor fit on alignment tabs (they're too small)

Worked great in my 2006 acura rsx aspec. I converted 5 1/4 bose speakers to 270 Infiniti reference component sets. The adaptors fit perfect. I wrapped the panels with 100mil thick kolossus sound deadening material.

Pros: Fit exactly as it was described. High quality materials Very low price

Cons: None

Bracket too thick to fit.

Great product! Makes it easy installing different brand speakers! Please make sure you get tech help for your install, as different manufactures have different size speaker frames

Pros: Always fits right when using the recommended products

Cons: No cons. All pros

Great adaptor

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great adapter. Without this adapter your speakers might rattle on the window when you close the door with the window down.

Pros: Easy install. Lines up great.

Cons: You will have to drill new holes but it's simple. Line them up and use a marker where the screw go. The use a punch to put a divot in and then drill a small hole and screw the screws in.

Bracket was recommended but was too thick to fit. Mounted on correctly but was hitting the door panel before I could clip it back on. I ended up modifying my stock brackets and fit perfectly fine.

Cons: About 1/4 inch too thick

These Brackets are a Life Saver!

Keith from Los Angeles, CA on 6/16/2011

Not sure why so many other people had issues with the brackets, but in my car, an Acura RSX (Should have similar speaker ports to the Honda Accord and Civic), the brackets fit perfectly. They had the stock hole locations for the screws, and the speed clips were heavy duty and fitted fine. I was using slim-mount Polk Coaxials. All I had to do was mount the bracket to the original panel location, slide on the supplied four clips per bracket and screwed in the speaker using the screws that came with the speaker set. I didn't even have to drill or cut any holes into my rear and the fit is secure and rock solid. There was really no way to easily perform this without the brackets.

Instructions provided are okay. They do not do a very good job at informing you that you need to modify the door panel by removing (breaking) the plastic molding that surrounds the speaker grill on the inside of the door.

Didn't work for me

Arion from Bay Area, CA on 11/3/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Though these adaptors fit in my 2003 Acura RSX, the speakers (Boston S65RC) I was sold were too high and I couldn't get the door panel back on. I ended up having to figure out a different fabrication which was a big pain.

Does not fit 05 Civic Si

Zane from Huntsville, AL on 10/20/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Given the shallow mounting depth and triangular hole the factory speakers are mounted in, the bracket raises the speakers so high, the door panel will not snap back on. God bless `em, the Crutchfield techs sent me Ford/Mazda.Nissan SAPs but it still didn't work. I had to go to an installer to finish the job. The Honda bracket is almost 2" too tall.

I used these with slim baffles on my '03 Civic Coupe and they make the speaker stick out to far, now the door will not snap back together, they will need to be cut down.

Good, not great

James from Queen Creek, AZ on 12/26/2007

These are mounted and in use in my 2004 Honda Civic 4-door Sedan LX. These brackets work however I would like to see the same design in a stronger metal. I broke through 1 of the eyes while mounting and ended up just using a wider headed screw to mount through that eye. A helpful tip for the next guy since the bracket instructions were not clear... After removing the factory speaker bracket put the new bracket up to the center of the top slot lining up the 2 tabs on the bottom of the bracket with the square openings at the bottom. You will know when it just seems to "fit". This is where you want to hold it while you mark the locations of the holes to drill. Regardless of how well you seem to drill the holes it seems a little door panel modification is needed. In my case I needed to remove the foam glued to a lip formed into the door panel. And trim the lip to fit the placement of my new speakers. This lip is meant to surround the stock speakers. I wanted to keep as much of the surround as possible so I trimmed only the areas that were not meshing properly. To accomplish this I used a dremel with a basic cut-off wheel. I essentially left the top of the lip intact and tapered it down to almost no lip at the bottom. The plastic cuts like butter, be careful not to cut too deep.

Features

Overview: As of 11/19/14, the SAH6 is compatible with select 2002-2008 Acura models. The 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 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).

5-1/4 Speakers: While a 5-1/4 speaker will mount easily in this bracket given the bolt pattern, the frame of most 5-1/4s is smaller than the opening in the bracket, making a 6-1/2 a better fit. When using a 5-1/4, a speaker baffle is also needed to seal the rear of the speaker.

Dimensions:

  • Cutout Diameter: 5.265"
  • Height: 1.035"
  • Three-Hole Spacing (6-1/2): 4.6"-4.825"
  • Four-Hole Spacing (5-1/4):
    • Perimeter: 3.735"-3.95"
    • Diagonal: 5.3"-5.625"

Thanks. Did you have trouble getting your door back on? My bracket is preventing it from clipping in at the bottom corner. [ Joe  Dec 19, 2014 ]
I aligned the brackets so that the new speakers would still be in line with existing hole, and placed bracket and just drilled new pilot holes for the brackets and installed like a breeze! [ MARSHALL  Dec 18, 2014 ]
Hey Joe So it's true they don't "fit" the existing speaker ports in the door. I used a sturdy drill bit, and using the mounting brackets as a guide, put holes straight through the metal in the door. It was really easy actually. You just have to pay a little attention to make sure that the brackets line up well with the speaker vents on the interior door plastic. The brackets and the speaker will be a very snug fit in the allocated space, so a little extra "measure twice, cut once" goes a long way. [ MATTHEW  Dec 18, 2014 ]
