More details on the Metra 82-5603 Speaker Mounting Brackets

Pat M.

Product Research


Overview: As of 11/14/14, the 82-5603 is compatible with select 2011-2014 Ford Explorers. The bracket is designed to allow easy replacement of the factory speakers with select aftermarket 6-1/2 and 6-3/4 speakers. (Please refer to the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.)

6-3/4 Speakers: For a 6-3/4 speaker to fit in the opening of this bracket, the tabs around the inner speaker opening will need to be removed. They are scored along the bottom for easy removal, but still may require pliers and a file.

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 a typical 5-1/4 is approximately 1/2" smaller than the opening in the bracket, making a 6-1/2 or 6-3/4 a better fit. When using a 5-1/4, a speaker baffle must also be used to seal the rear of the speaker.


  • Inner Diameter: 5.74" (not accounting for the inner tabs)
  • Height: 1.5"
  • Three-Hole Tab Spacing (6-1/2): 4.637"-4.928"
  • Four-Hole Tab Spacing (6-1/2):
    • Perimeter: 3.8"-4.03"
    • Diagonal: 5.36"-5.68"
  • Four-Hole Spacing (6-3/4):
    • Perimeter: 4.4"
    • Diagonal: 6.225"
