Pros: Good fit
I used this to replace the factory Bose unit in my 1994 Corvette. It works great but it took a couple of tries to get all of the screws lined up. You will still need to cut the factory mount behind the Bose unit. There's not a lot of space in there so if you can live without a CD player, the newer Media units make this job easier.
Pros: Good Cost, Looks Great
Cons: Weak Instructions, difficult to align
Great product, great fit, quality packaging, and was exactly what I was looking for in my '95 corvette.
Pros: Great Fit
Cons: None so far
Another good product. It does make life easier.
Pros: Single and double din all in one package. easy to install.
Cons: No real cons here.
The kit itself was very good; good quality and matched up as original stock brackets.
Pros: A great stock like kit.
Cons: The instructions were so-so, in that it took a bit to get alignment correct, etc. I would have gone 5 stars if the instructions had a bit more detail.
I ordered this to install a sony radio I had previous purchased for my '92 corvette. This made installation very easy and in no time at all I was finished.My radio is a single din so I had to use the storage compartment tray. This is going to be very handy for storing cds.This was a small investment for all the benifits it offers. I highly recommend using this install kit.
Pros: Easy of installation of radio.
Worked fairly well, did the job.
92 vette - Fought getting the stereo-bin aligned to fit my bezel and into the opening.. Then realized the bin face plate wasn't sitting where it needed to be and had to use a little force to get it seated correctly. Then aligning everything for the install was major easy
Pros: Makes a nice clean fit for an aftermarket stereo
Cons: Faceplate to bin could fit a little easier
Fits my 91 Corvette base with Bose. Looks fantastic!!!! Troy was helpful with tracking down exactly what I needed with my pioneer system.
Pros: Fits nicely, looks factory, color match
Everything you need to fit the Dash of the C4 Corvette. Only used Double Din pieces, but comes with the pocket for single Din if you need it.
Pros: Easy to use, simply the pieces needed to work.
Bought a DIN 2.5 stereo, so this wasn't used.
ok product, mid level plastic, no real instructions on where to place screws for proper fit
Installed on 1992 corvette and fit as intended and very flexible in different fit applications
Pros: Good fit very flexible adjustments
Cons: Better install directions
Glad it all came together with the receiver. oonly thing didn't get was the wiring tie in as the power unit was behind the passenger seat. Had purchased it previously for another radio so no issues.
Pros: This kit provides for a perfect fit... no cutting or trimming necessary. Now I have a spot for extra stuff, cd,s etc.
With this kit, the mounting of my new Pioneer double-DIN unit was simple and straightforward. I installed the head unit into a '96 Corvette in the stock double- DIN space, and the mounting brackets in this kit fit perfectly. The instructions included with this kit were exactly correct also. It was refreshing to find such correct instructions in this day and age of half-baked documentation. My only slight concern about the kit is that the brackets are plastic, and my preference would be metal brackets for a bit more sturdiness.
This kit provides for a perfect fit... no cutting or triming necessary.
The kit worked well. I wish the storage bin didn't have holes in it. If you put something small into the bin after installation, it might end up inside your dash. Also, the radio must be mounted directly to the brackets without the use of the DIN sleeve. That means the radio cannot be quick-released from the dash if it needs to come out for any reason.
Adequate installation kit, the interface between box and trim plate is fairly chesty but the mounting brackets aligned perfectly. There was actually better insight into the installation of the products with this kit than in the Crutchfield installation instructions.
