How to install a car stereo
by J.R. Stoffel

Watch this video for a step-by-step overview of a basic car stereo installation. The actual steps involved vary from car to car, but this is a good example.

Steve, Crutchfield A/V Editor, gives us a tour of the Crutchfield Labs. He talks about why we built the Labs and how they can help us find you the right gear.

Harry from Pioneer Electronics came to visit us here at Crutchfield and showed us some of the great features available on their DEH-80PRS CD receiver.

Pioneer's 2013 navigation receivers give you great sound, smartphone connectivity (including iPhone 5, with an adapter), and snappy, accurate navigation.

The top end of Alpine's 2013 CD receiver line gives you exciting features, like Bluetooth, App Direct mode, and the ability to tune your sound using your smartphone.

Pioneer's MIXTRAX technology analyzes your music library and creates transitions between songs, so you get a smooth mix in your dash wherever you go.

Double-DIN CD receivers keep things simple, yet still take advantage of your dash real estate. We hit the Crutchfield Labs to compare six of our most popular models.

JVC's 2014 digital media receivers are great for everyone who uses their smartphone as their main source of music, and they work great with popular music apps.

Clarion's Intelligent VOICE software lets you talk in conversational English, and delivers relevant results quickly, thanks to incorporated Google Voice technology.
