Before doing any post I try and do a search first to see if my question has already been answered in the past, and in most cases it is. But my question about whether or not there is a 06 Sonata speaker adapter so I can replace the factory front and rear speakers I am finding mixed reviews. The two links I keep finding in past topics are for the Scosche speaker bracket found at:





I am hesitant on purchasing these brackets because I keep reading posts by people saying these don't work with the o6 Sonata. But at the same time I also see posts saying they worked fine. I don't understand how two different people using the same exact product on the same exact car can have completely different experiences. Is there a definitive answer on whether or not I should purchase these? I am not planning on doing anything special, just putting in 6.5" rear speakers for starters. Specially, Infinity Reference 6012si

Then based on how easy the install goes I'll then do the front's. I do know that I need to get a speaker wiring harness also, which I don't know where I can buy from off the top of my head, but I do recall seeing where I can get them in a past post, so I'll do a search in a bit

Thanks for everyone's help....as always

Thumbs down

I think there's a simple reason the reviews contradict. If you buy speaker A and install it in car M with adapter X, there's no way of telling if the back of your speaker is going to scrape the window.

Mix-n-match is definitely not for the DIY-er; the issue is an unknown speaker depth.

I used the Scosche adapters with Polk db650s front and back no prob. The top-mount depth of the db650s is 2" according to Crutchfield. If your speakers are close to that you should have no prob. I also use XTC foam baffles (highly recommended) behind the speakers and KC's perfectly happy with the combination, so there's room to spare in the doors.

If you read the bad reviews between the lines they say basically the same thing: the Scosche adapters won't work with every speaker. Duhh!

I poked around the Crutchfield site and it looks like they have a lot of speakers to choose from that fit the Sonata. They're pretty reliable. Maybe Crutchfield limits the speakers they sell to those that fit most vehicles easily and CarDomain don't.

One caution: you have to drill out 4 rivets per speaker then get the body of the rivets out (I used a Dremel with a cutting wheel but others have cut-n-Vise-Gripped their way to rivetlessness) then you have to break the Scosche's "ears" in half and drill new holes. It's not as easy as some cars, but do-able. Forewarned is forearmed.

I appreciate you taking the time to explain this in detail. Knowing that you used Polk db650's with no problem I will look for and buy speakers with the same top mount depth so that I don't run into the same problems that other people have reported.
Thanks again!

Once you remove the speaker you then need a spacer. Lots of guys say the spacer from Crutchfield fits and maybe it does for your speaker but I just got them (Scosche SAT6). Not only did my speaker basket not fit in the hole but more importantly, the depth of the factory spacer is just about 2"s. The depth of the Schosche is about 1". You will need to be very careful that the back of your speaker does not interfere with the window operation. I made 2" spacers from plywood.

morabors, that's a good point I forgot: the speaker diameter is as important as the depth. I noticed Crutchfield has several speakers they classify as "6.5/6.75 inch" that they say do not fit the Sonata.

Dennis the Mennis,

I've just purchased a pair of Polk db650. According to your previous post, what wiring harness do I need? I've checked local car stereo store and they seems to have no clue about the new Sonata. However, Crutchfield recommended to use the Toyota Wire Harness
speakers, 1995-up/ Mazda Wire Harness speakers, 1990-up.

In conclusion, I have come up with the list of installation accessories. Please let me know if I am missing anything.

Scosche SAT6 (speaker adapter/ bracket)
Wiring Adapter (unknown)
XTC foam baffles & Spacers (is it neccessary)

Note: Has anyone bring their car to the car audio installer to install the speakers?

Thanks for all your inputs!

That's what the markings said on my adapters; that's the right adapter.

Not absolutely necessary but highly recommended. Many cars allow water into the doors and the factory speakers have a drip lip at the top of the plastic ring. I've heard of speakers that sound lousy after a rainstorm so I wasn't comfortable without the XTCs (BTW, you need the "shortie" XTCs, not the "standard" ones.) I don't want to get back into the doors needlessly.

If you want to have the speakers installed, it should be well within the skills of an installer. I had my door panels off in 30 min even though I had nothing to go on. They're pretty standard. Dunno 'bout cost to have them installed vs. cost of the tools.

If you want to do the install yourself you need a phillips screwdriver and a trim panel tool. This from Harbor Freight looks like it will do the job better than my panel remover; $7

I can post the pictures showing the location of the screws and clips if you're interested. I don't think a good installer would need the pictures.

You also need a drill to remove the 4 rivet heads holding each speaker in and some way to remove the rivet body. Some have cut-wiggle-pulled the rivet bodies out; I used a Dremel and cut off wheel.

You also have to drill 3 or 4 holes for the SAT-6 adapters; the factory holes don't line up.

Dennis the Mennis,

Thanks for your input. For the Wiring Harness, Crutchfield offers 2 type one is the Mazda and the other is for Toyota. I was able to figure out that the Toyota is the one to go for front and rear. As for Mazda, it only fits on the front. Refer to the XTC foam, is the one that I need is the slim profile? I saw 2 the slim and the standard one on Crutchfield. Do I need the spacer as mentioned by the previous post?

Thanks again.

No; the Scosche SAT-6 adapters are all you need.
