They Don't Fit - I Threw Them Out
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.

Since 2010, two thirds of Acura RSX owners that reviewed this product reported the same problems, and Crutchfield is still selling a br
Cons: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.

We're sorry for the problems that Bob had, but his input was crucial for us to upgrade our vehicle information.
