View Full Version : Crutchfield's speaker mounting specs and dimensions

Is this thing accurate? According to their data in the catalog my 2001 Civic has 2" for mounting depth. Something is not right though... I have HD-52's in my doors without problems (behind the factory grills, no spacers, etc...) and the CDT site says mounting depth is 2.53" for those :eyebrow: My audio guy thinks with a little spacing we may be able to get a 3" depth driver in there. What gives on these specs?

They ****, use the internets for more accurate information.

Crutchfield's specs, as far as speaker mounting and such, should be used for no more than a vague guide.

When I 1st bought my car they listed that a set of Infinity Reference 4" 2-ways (that I bought for $25/shipped) wouldn't fit in my doors at all.

They fit exactly with no modifications needed at all. I dunno why they so frequently get that stuff wrong...

I don't have the book in front of me but I remember it said 6x9's no more than 3". I looked tonight scoping out a set of 6x9's with 3.5" so I went out to the car and measured. Where they get that number from is beyond me! None of the trunk bars go within 1" of the magnet. Therefore I think it easy to mount one with 6" of depth. Don't go buy these guys numbers!

I have to say something too... they told me that my speakers wouldnt fit... SURPRISE! They did. When I asked them if they were sure they simply said " other companies guess, we have actually gone out and tried to see if it will fit." :laugh:

Crutchfield is retarded. MY fonr tspeakers don't fit worth ****. I will have to make my own brackets/spacers for them so they don't hit my windows.

As a follow-up I have M-6's in my doors which are 3.75" depth. That's 1.75" over what they say will fit!

I don't know where cruthfield gets their information from because they're wrong in two instances now... I'm starting to think they're really BSing their information.

said my car had 6.5's in the front, when I really had 4"s, thats a huge difference.
