Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Jude Director, Digital Imaging,

Great value, very handy

Written by Jude, Director, Digital Imaging, on 7/10/2014 9:23:00 AM

My son just purchased a newer car, a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and the sound system it came with was, well, awful. We sat down together and planned a system and since he was on a budget we decided we would go with our house brand Sound Ordnance for most of it, and we are not disappointed. We installed the P65-C in the rear deck using the SA69 6X9 adapter. We then installed the P-40 in the front doors with fabricated brackets we made from the 12x12 sheet of ABS #1208900903 and then used the Dynamat #15410415 to seal it all up and add sound deadening to the doors. We chose the JVC KD-R950BT for the Bluetooth and the generous power the internal amplifier has, plus the abundant color choices made it easy to match the red backlighting in the Pontiac. We needed bass so we used the Sound Ordnance B-24 and the Rockford Fosgate #575P500X1B we had from his previous vehicle and connected it using the EFX 8 gauge wiring kit #142PA8. We spent a Sunday working on this project and have to say it exceeded my expectations on sound. It sounds clear, the bass hits as hard as you want and the total price was well within his budget. This is a great system and it was also a great day spent with my son.

Tough plastic

Written By KT, LA on Sunday, October 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The templates are helpful and ultimately the plastic makes a decent bracket. Cutting out the circles is more of a pain than I expected - just scoring with a carpet knife doesn't work for circles. No instructions included. I would prefer buying a bracket that has the hole for the speaker cut out and only adjust the size around it to fit it in my car...
Pros:
works
Cons:
hard/involved to cut out circles no instructions included

Great product, it allowed me to fit my new radio into an opening that was to big for the new radio,
Pros:
Looks great and it allowed me to fit my new radio into an opening that was to big for the new radio
Cons:
There should have been instructions on how to cut the panel. I used a jig saw with a fine tooth blade which caused the plastic to gum up. A course blade might have worked better.

Pretty good

Written By Alex C, Columbus, OH on Monday, June 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They are made of pretty solid material and everything cuts out well, but the one thing they failed to mention when I was ordering these is that using them to install speakers that do not line up with the original holes would require you to drill new ones into steel frame of your car. I got around this issue by screwing the mount into the original holes, then using silicon to hold my speakers in place. Worked very well.
Pros:
Strong material
Cons:
Hard to cut Might require drilling new holes into the steel frame of the car

Custom fit

Written By Midlothian sound, Midlothian on Sunday, June 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not sure how you were supposed to cut this as there was no instructions, I used a jug saw that melted the plastic and you only had a 1 sec to separate the plastic before it fused back together
Pros:
Ability to make custom mounts
Cons:
Workability

Great Plastic Panel

Written By James P, San Francisco, CA on Sunday, January 26, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was a bit skeptical purchasing a piece of plastic, but it worked out great, the plastic has a grid on the back, all I had to do is score it with a utility knife, then bend and the piece I wanted broke of easily.
Pros:
Easy to work with

Should work

Written By John, Minnnesota on Saturday, November 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The website says 5 x 8 speakers are standard for my car, but when I took out the old ones I knew the new ones were going to be way too small. Crutchfield sent me this for free to make up the difference. Very nice of them, but I wish now I would have ordered 6 x 9's instead.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product worked out great, cut a larger hole than needed in the dashboard of my boat, This product made it look more of a professional install. Was great that had a larger sheet than needed, knowing that if I messed up I would still have more pieces to work with.
Pros:
Was easy to work with and cut, had pre-scored lines to help with the measurements.
Cons:
None

Almost perfect

Written By DickG, Atlanta on Tuesday, February 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When it turned out that my radio was not as good a fit as Crutchfield indicated
it would be, I called technical support for help. They sent me this Universal
Panel kit at no cost (nice). Before I received it, I was concerned about my
ability to make accurate cuts in a piece of hard plastic so that it would fit
around the radio with no cracks.

When I received the piece, I was delighted to see that the back of the panel was
deeply engraved with a series of closely spaced lines, making it much easier to
ensure that my cuts were straight and parallel. The plastic was still very
tough, and it took several passes with a utility knife to score it deeply enough
to "snap off" the excess for the outside cuts. The inside cuts were even more
difficult. I finally used a razor saw to do the interior cuts.

The piece was big enough that with careful measuring, I could have made two face
plates for my double-DIN radio. This made me a little more confident in my
cutting, knowing that I had a second chance if I messed up the first time.

All in all, it's a very nice product if you need it. Just take your time and
measure carefully.

Good deal

Written By Dave F., Philladelphia PA on Monday, November 22, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a good peice to fill in some space. It has templates in it for different size speaker,
if that's what you need it for. The frontside of it is like a crinkle finish so you don't see the
templates from the front. The rear is set up so it can be easily and evenly scored and
snapped apart to fit. The only problem I see is down the middle of it is a dark colored
discoloration that is not extreme but noticable, I only have to use half of it so I can keep
that part out.

2 questions already asked

How do I use this as a Speaker adapter mounting bracket? [ Favienne  Oct 22, 2014 ]
2 answers
  • I didn't end up using mine. [ VICTOR M   Oct 22, 2014 ]
  • You need to cut out a piece that will fit around your speaker hole then trim a hole to mount speaker (will look like a donut) only issue is this material is pretty stiff and difficult to cut unless you some kind of power tool to trim Would be fairly difficult with heavy duty snips I ended up not using and just got other precut trim rings [ WENDELL   Oct 22, 2014 ]
I don't understand what this is for. I'm looking for an adapter bracket for my 6' speakers. and I'm comparing products. For this do I just cut a whole for the speaker lay it flat on the panel, and just drill screws through to stay secure to the panel? [ Favienne  Oct 22, 2014 ]
