Almost perfect; looks great

Written By Keys Cuda, Florida Keys on Sunday, July 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fits the big hole from the factory radio/equalizer just fine for a new single size Alpine. Crutchfield knew the one send.
Pros:
Looks great, holds radio well. Reasonably easy to install. Purchased as part of Crutchfield package, which is the way to go. They sent me stuff I didn't know I would need.
Cons:
Had to break out the Dremel to expand the opening for the radio to accommodate the Alpine package. Tedious but not a big deal. Figuring out how to fit plastic parts required some guesswork, but that could be my denseness.

Fits well after considerable modifications

Written By JohnDeere, Waterloo, Iowa on Sunday, February 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First, only one mounting hole lined up, so i drilled a new hole. Secondly, there are two mounts on the corners of the heater control that will keep the bottom of the mounting kit pushed out, they need to be trimmed back. Lastly, with no way of holding the bottom of the mounting kit in, i couldn't help but think the weight of the HU hanging there would eventually force the bottom of the mount out. Maybe this wasn't necessary but i wrapped a piece of mechanics wire around the mounting piece for the HU and the pocket above it to hold it up. I haven't had any problems with it moving at all. I am still wondering why the manufacturer didn't incorporate the mounting screws of the heater controls and add tabs to be able to hold the mounting kit in also.
Pros:
Looks good and after mods fits well. Good rigid construction. Color matches pretty well.
Cons:
Didn't mount like it was designed to, could have been designed smarter.

Fits perfectly. My only gripe is that I had to use a dremel to saw off the plastic panels. They don't come off easily. Other than that it works!

GM-K411 In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Richard B, Indio, CA on Monday, January 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Almost a no-brainer. Had to do a very minor amount of interior radio clearance trimming to allow the receiver to fit into the kit, but no other issues and the unit fit like OEM into the dash of the Saturn SL
Pros:
Solid construction...mates well in the vehicle
Cons:
Required very minor sizing adjustment to get the receiver to fit into the bracket mounting opening.

Plastic, but cheap too

Written By MBR, Albuquerque, NM on Friday, December 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Application: '96 Saturn SL2 beater car - Lower half of plastic housing really doesn't attach to anything. There are two tabs on top, which are held in place with the factory screws, but there's really nothing holding the bottom in, other than gravity and friction. Amazing that it works, but after two weeks is seems to be staying in place.
Pros:
It was free
Cons:
Not sure if it's going to work on the long term.

Worked like a charm

Written By Alpine_Type_X, Oregon on Monday, November 18, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I was viewing this product online, I was wondering what those tabs were and figured that since I was installing a single din head unit that those wouldn't be there when I received the package. Much to my dismay, there they were, plain as day. I figured no big deal, I could just snap them off. Wrong! Maybe if the plastic weren't so thick it would have been pretty easy to just use the knife that I used. Ended up taking about 10 minutes to remove and smooth the edges, which isn't too bad. And as a added bonus, I got a nice little battle wound out of the deal. After that, it was a piece of cake to install. Finished off nicely and the Pioneer DEH-6600BT looks like it has been there the whole time. If it weren't for the tab process (and battle wound) I would have gave this product 5 stars. All in all, a very good product at a reasonable price that I would recommend.
Pros:
It worked!!
Cons:
The tabs.

I was surprised at the quality of the fit and near perfect match in texture and color. Installation was straight forward, which, helped me as I seldom mess with car stereo installation. Good product would by this brand again.

American International GM-K411 Dash Kit

Written By Steve S, Riverside, RI on Sunday, February 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This receiver was very easy to install. I used a small hack saw blade to cut out the tabs that I wasn't going to use and then trimed them a little bit more with a razor blade. This made everything smooth. The radio mount went in snug (which I wanted) so it wouldn't move around and the fit would be tight. Installed the radio into the mount and it looked great. Very easy install without needing all sorts of odd tools. Had the install done in about 30 minutes. I also bought the wiring kit and did this before opening the radio in the car, that way it was just plug everything in and go.
Pros:
Easy install with common tools. Would not recoment using a utility knife to cut the tabs. Very thick and if it slips things could get ugly.
Cons:
The color of the kit is just a little off from the factory color, but is very close. Storage pocket isn't deep enough to hold CD's. Can hold other things though.

It worked, but I had to jury rig/shim the unit to keep it from moving around in the dash. Tabs were easy to remove, but I did have to shave the inside a little on both sides to fit the stereo in. Looks fine in the car.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wasn't to impressed with this Receiver Kit. It was more like something I would get at the local big box store not Crutchfield. When you have to remove parts to fit your application there is always the chance of breaking the plastic and being left with an unusable piece of trash. Besides do they still make aftermarket receivers with the two big knobs sticking out the front?

Mounting Kit

Written By Phil N, Lake Stevens, Wa on Tuesday, March 01, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Although the mounting kit was a good fit, the pocket portion of the kit sags at the top of the
bezel. it also interferes with the electronic Module at the top of the bezel which contains the
buttons for Trac Control and Rear Window Defogger. The kit does fit snuggly into position
and the radio installation looks great.

Easiest installation ever...

Written By Chaz, St. Louis, MO on Sunday, February 13, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have replaced radios in the past and have always had to modify the "made to
fit" bezels (and receiver kits). They always had that "this radio sticks out
like a sore thumb" look. I was worried that this kit would have the same
"aftermarket" look, especially since it was going into a 96 Saturn SL2. It
proved me wrong. The color and more importantly the overall shape was a perfect
match for our dash.

I bought this receiver kit to go along with the Kenwood KDC-HD545U receiver. I
used a Dremel tool to remove the shaft plates and had the stereo installed and
working in 10 minutes. It took longer to solder/heat shrink the wiring
harnesses than it did to install the stereo.

Once again, Thank you Crutchfield for carrying quality products at great prices.

Great fit

Written By MaxWattage, Columbus, OH on Saturday, December 04, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great fit in my 99 Saturn SL2. Really like having the storage pocket. Color and
texture match the rest of the dash very well. Only "problem" was that pieces
that you have to remove if you're not using a shaft-style radio (who does
anymore?) were a little tough to remove. They said to use a utility knife,
which was tough even with a fresh blade. I ended up using a Dremel tool and
cutting wheel, they came out much easier that way.

Very Convenient

Written By LoganB, State College, PA on Thursday, October 21, 2010
 
This chassis was a great item to have when installing a new head unit in a
Saturn SL2. Its got a good tight fit, and looks good. Only two real complaints:
its a bit annoying to take out those little spacer things, and the plastic
doesn't match the texture/feel/color of the other interior plastics. But neither
of these are really much of a hindrance. Overall great product!

This product is worth every penny. The instructions are very simple to understand. The
installation was simple. In about 15 minutes, I had my radio installed and looks like a
proffessional did it. The adapter mounts to the same 2 screws that the OEM did and fits
perfect and looks like the radio was installed from the factory.

Clean Fit For Saturn SC1

Written By Anonymous, Salt Lake City, UT on Friday, April 23, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I recently received this installation kit as part of a cd player I ordered from
crutchfield. The unit fits perfectly in my saturn and looks great! My only
grievance with it is that by moving the little storage unit above the deck it
makes it significantly more shallow. I usually store my wallet in there while
driving but the pocket is barely big enough to fit the remote the deck came
with. The unit is awesome, just lousy that the pocket that I am so fond of is so
much smaller.

The better of the two...

Written By Anonymous, Arlington, VA on Thursday, March 18, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Of the two standard size dash adapters for the 2nd generation Saturn S series, this is
the better looking of the two, even if it moves the radio lower on the dash. Fit was nearly
perfect. The only problem- the edges of the pocket were too sharp- I lightly filed and
smoothed them to make them more "hand-friendly".

No fit for my stereo

Written By ssaxt0, Antioch, CA on Friday, February 13, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It is a slick looking unit but it did not fit my unit or another unit I had because maybe I did not have a DIN Sleeve. Sorry, this purchase was a waste for me because I have to fill the gap between unit and this product. I got some ideas to make it look better than it does right now but it is still not in because the antenna did not fit so I have to get an adapter. This purchase was a bust so far. Sorry.

Great Fit in '95 Saturn SL2

Written By Charlotte, Colorado on Saturday, April 26, 2008

Nice fit and finish in my '95 Saturn SL2. Good, solid hold when installed. No
alterations necessary except for removing the two squares in the front
opening to allow installation of a DIN receiver. Mine had tabs to screw the
adapter in at the OEM spots.

Instructions out of date

Written By Dave, Alexandria, VA on Saturday, September 08, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just a heads-up, the instructions show two tabs at the top of the unit used to bolt it down with the screws from the factory installation.

However, the unit I received didn't have these tabs. It slid in my '95 Saturn anyway, and so far it appears to hold. I'm just worried that thieves would have a pretty easy time stealing my brand-new receiver if they knew only a pair of plastic caps on the sides are holding it in place.

I do like the pocket on top, as it makes the buttons on the receiver easier to access from my hand on the shifter.

Great fit, color almost matches the stock dash perfectly (a little tint difference but nothing major) and is a breeze to install. Recommend using metal snips and a file to remove the tabs on the inside of the unit because I tried using a box cutter and it took forever and didn't get much of anywhere, then used those and in 5 minutes was done. Great stuff as usual, reciever install couldn't have been easier
