The free installation gear we include with most car stereos and car speakers you buy from us helps you achieve a clean, professional-looking installation - and saves you money, too. So what do we include to make your job easier?

With most car stereo purchases, we'll send you a free installation kit, a wiring harness, a set of custom installation instructions, plus an antenna adapter if your car needs one.

The installation kit helps your stereo fit in your dash, and look like it belongs there.

The wiring harness lets you connect your new receiver to your car's wiring with a simple plug.

The Crutchfield MasterSheet™ is a detailed, illustrated set of instructions that shows you step-by-step how to install a new stereo or speakers in your specific car.

And if your car needs an adapter to connect the AM/FM antenna to your new receiver, we'll send you that along with your other installation gear.

When you buy speakers from us, we'll send free wiring harnesses, mounting brackets if your vehicle requires them, and a detailed set of instructions.

The speaker wiring harnesses let you plug your new speakers into your existing speaker wiring, saving you tons of time.

Speaker mounting brackets let you adapt aftermarket speakers to the factory openings and install smaller speakers into larger openings, giving you more choices when you shop for speakers.

And of course, you'll get Crutchfield's legendary technical support, free for the life of your gear. Our experienced tech department is available 7 days a week should you need them.
