In 1974, Bill Crutchfield, our founder, couldn't find a source for the stereo gear he needed when restoring an old Porsche — so he decided to become that source for other Do-It-Yourselfers. Since then, we've become the place to shop for car A/V by providing our customers in-depth product knowledge and installation guidance.
By getting hands-on with the products we carry and thousands of vehicles, we can provide the info you need to make good shopping decisions, and verify fit information for your car.
In addition to being car A/V enthusiasts, our advisors receive lots of training to ensure that they understand the technology inside and out, and are up to date on the hottest trends in the industry, all so that they can give you the best advice possible.
When you buy a car stereo from us, we'll make sure you get the right package of installation gear required to install it, and save you some money in the process. If the package you need for your vehicle is worth $50 or less, you'll get it for free. Packages worth over $50 get a $50 discount.
To see the installation packages that work with your vehicle, identify it with our Outfit My Carsm tool, and add the stereo you're interested in to your shopping cart. You'll then be able to choose the package that works best for you from the options we present. We carry installation gear for most vehicles; RetroSound knobs and faceplates are not included in this offer. You can also save 50% on connectors and tools you might find helpful for your installation. Just add them to your stereo order, and the discount will appear in your shopping cart.
Start by telling us what you drive. When you select a stereo, you'll be able to choose the package of accessories that best suits your needs. We'll make sure you get all the stuff you need, and you'll also see how much you'll save, plus learn some basic information about your installation.
Buy car speakers from us, and we'll send you free wiring harnesses and mounting brackets made specifically for your vehicle. Speaker gear is available for most vehicles; some vehicles don't require brackets or harnesses.
For most of the vehicles on the road today, we offer one of three kinds of installation instructions:
