American International FMK-550 Dash Kit

Written By Gonzo, Orange Park, Fl on Monday, November 24, 2014

This particular kit didn't fit the Pioneer Radio I bought. Unless there is another version, I will be returning the radio. This would have been the 7th radio I have installed using this kit and all the others have been super easy.

Pros: Super easy to use when the radio fits.

Cons: Not so easy to use when the radio doesn't fit!

FMK550

Written By Dan, Bradenton, FL on Sunday, November 23, 2014

Easy to install once you fully understand the instructions. Instructions need more detail for each specific application. Needs a easy way to remove it. Good quality.

Pros: Does what it is designed to do.

Cons: Instructions need more detail.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It worked well and is holding my new radio solidly in the dash. The instructions were a little confusing, but with the help of Crutchfield's instructions, I was able to figure out how to us it. The two mouse ears at the top were problem to remove.

Pros: It works and looks great.

Cons: Confusing directions, and some minor difficulty modifying the main piece.

Good value

Fit the car but not the radio it came with

Written By rbrum, Los Angeles, CA on Monday, October 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product was OK in and of itself and I'm sure it works on some cars/radios, but I got it as part of a package deal with my radio. While it fit the car just fine, the radio that it was shipped with didn't fit. So I had to buy another mounting bracket for my Ford Explorer. More Crutchfield's fault than the bracket's.

Pros: fit the car just fine.

Cons: bracket didn't really match the finish of the dashboard on my Ford Explorer. Didn't fit the radio it was shipped with.

Good value, not for the faint hearted

Written By VS, Albuquerque, NM on Friday, October 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the install kit for a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X598 in a 97 Crown Victoria. It eventually worked very well. The instructions with this were fairly basic and minimal which made it more difficult to install for a beginner. It was only due to past tinkering abilities that I was able to install using this unit.

Pros: Simple.

Cons: Instructions are not that clear. Crutchfield didn't seem to provide extra instructions to make this easier for my car, unless i missed them. I would suggest Crutchfield create a PDF instruction set for this that matches the receiver and automobile, if they have time.

Instructions needed for instrustions

Written By Oldestgenxer, St Louis, MO on Thursday, October 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ultimately everything worked out fine and it was an easy install, after I got more information. Crutchfield Tech Support is pretty awesome, too. But this adapter--it's like the instruction think they flow easily from one task to the next, but they really don't. For instance, it does not say to put it all together and put the radio in it before putting it in the dash. I thought, logically, you put the adapter kit in, and then hook the wires up, and then push the radio in. If you try to do it like that, the adapter is loose, and I thought there was something wrong. I think it's because the instructions cover all possible vehicles that can use it, but still, some clarity would have saved me a lot of frusttration

Pros: Awesome, clean fit. looks good.

Cons: Needs to have more clearly written instructions.

this is cool

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this thing is cool. Makes it very easy to install an aftermarket radio. And it gave me a little bit more storage underneath the radio. Perfect to hold my remote control.

Pros: fits perfectly into an econo line 150

Cons: none

ruined by unclear instructions / 2000 Lincoln TownCar

Written By ray, Whittier, ca on Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Because the instructions were not clear, regarding trimming kit to fit, I ended up trimming off the wrong pieces. Not only does the kit not fit right (screen is pivoted up and gets major glare) even if I got it t to fit, will now not 'lock' into dash. Not my first time installing a head unit.

Pros: Pre assembly was easy

Cons: Instruction regarding trimming to fit

Good, snug fit

Written By Wooter, Utah on Friday, August 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit snapped in to my 2003 F150 with a great, snug fit. Positional wise it is a little low in the stock opening (a small gap at the top, slightly under the bezel beneath). Perhaps if it were mounted with the shelf above the unit it would be positioned better, but I put the shelf below the unit.

Pros: Snug, snap in fit

Cons: A little low

American In-Dash Receiver Kit

Written By TS, Freehold, NJ on Friday, August 01, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased the kit to install a used radio for my 99 Ford F-150. Even though my radio was older and discontinued, Crutchfield had the specs on the radio and were able to match the radio, kit and truck. The kit and the included directions were very easy to use. The radio fits perfectly with this kit.

Pros: The directions and kit were very easy to use. My 14 year old daughter and I had the old radio out and the new one installed in under an hour.

Cons: None

Good product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product made the radio installation a breeze. I would highly recommend this product. I have used other brands from other stores, but this one was easy to use and there was no confusion on what parts and pieces to use.

Confusing instructions

Written By Tim, South Bend,IN on Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Main appearance bezel fit properly and looks good. All the little pieces associated with fitting the new radio into bezel did not fit well/ tight. I ultimately gave up and until I have more time to make this install correct.

Pros: Nice fit of the appearance bezel. Looks factory.

Cons: Not actual pictures to assist installation, only drawings.
