Is a speaker mounting bracket required to mount speakers?

Hi, I'm new here. Just got a 2011 Versa from the Hertz Rent2Buy program, and I love it.

When I look for speakers on Crutchfield.com it is showing me 6 1/2" and 5 1/4" speakers. It is saying for both sizes a mounting bracket is required. As much as I love Crutchfield, I am on a budget and would like to buy the speakers from another place (wont give me a free bracket)

So my question is, can I just fit 6 1/2" speakers without a mounting bracket or do I need it?

Most after market speakers require the bracket or spacer because they are deeper than the factory speakers. Without the bracket they will not fit right. I had to use the spacers on my four speakers that I installed. I went with alpine type R speakers which tend to be deeper than most. Hope this helps.
