Fit well, but skimpy direction

Written By 10nessee Tom, Vonore, tn on Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The installation of my new radio was a breeze with Crutchfield's instructions until I got to using the dash kit. Then things got confusing. Given the rest of their instructions, it was disappointing. But I finally figured it out and all is well. Overall I am very pleased with their price and great service.

Surprisingly good qualtiy

Written By lloyd, Scranton, PA on Saturday, July 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I will be honest, I didn't expect much from this. I have used them in the past (Not this brand) for a double DIN to single DIN and they always seem cheaply made. I has shocked to find thick plastic and properly aligned mounting points. It looks great in the car and gives the install a professional look.
Pros:
Everything, I can't find one thing wrong with it.
Cons:
Make it really classy and put a rubber mat in it for the small storage spot and make it really look factory.

Yet another piece of gear that comes free with purchase of a new stereo.

Fills in the space nicely from where the factory stereo used to be.

Custom Look

Written By RMA, WA on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
With a double DIN you have to cut a dividing bar out yourself, which isn't hard but you don't want to mess it up and leave a scratch across the front. Reminded me of doing old model airplanes. Take your time and it works out fine.
Pros:
Good fit and appearance when installed.

Wire cutters would be a better suggestion in directions over utility knife.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
At first, I was unsure of the fitment of this product. Radio didn't seem centered and I was only able to secure it to the radio with two screws and I would have preferred four. And even those two were not a perfect match. Once I got the radio installed, it looks perfect. Radio is seated nicely, looks great in the dash.
Pros:
Looks great.
Cons:
Fitment to the radio seemed less-than-perfect.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It worked, but was a little hard to find holes that lined up exactly to pioneer unit. It worked ok, you have to trim out the middle section for double-DIN installs. I used a wire cutters to trim it and then a hobby knife to shave off the resulting tabs left behind.
Pros:
fits 06 ford explorer and pioneer double DIN radio install
Cons:
A bit of work to find the correct holes to line-up.

Good Fit

Written By RandyD, Arlington, TX on Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used the receiver kit to replace my Shaker 500 HU, and replace it with a Pioneer AVH-P8400BH. At first I thought the receiver kit frame was warped because the HU face plate would catch on the inside edge of the frame, preventing the face plate from closing when all four frame screws were tightened down. I even called Crutchfield and said, "I think the mounting frame is warped." Well, I was wrong. The frame was not warped, but it did require a little adjusting in order to get the tolerances just right. I ended up putting a washer behind each of the two top screw holes (which affected the fit and finish not at all), and the face plate now closes just fine, with just the faintest of a tick against the bottom of the frame as it comes to full close. All in all, no complaints and the frame looks good in my 2005 Mustang convertible.
Pros:
Free, with the receiver.

Gets the job done.

Written By Scott, Riverton, WY on Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nothing too fancy, but gets the job done. I had to do a little bit of drilling out on the holes for the mounting brackets because the holes/slots were too small for the screws that came with my stereo. Not a huge deal, everything else went together OK. Considering it was thrown in for free with my radio purchase, I'm satisfied.
Pros:
Should work for most installations.
Cons:
Cheap flimsy plastic, you must be careful during installation to prevent breaking it.

Not recommended for Mustang

Written By Ned, Mission Viejo, CA on Monday, February 11, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Faceplate fits Pioneer HU nicely, but sits almost 1/4" too far back in the dash opening. The result is that the faceplate is visibly recessed from the rest of the dash. Tried putting a few nylon washers behind the faceplate to push it forward. This fixed the problem but made another problem more evident. The faceplate sits about 1/8" too far to the left, creating a large gap on the right side between the faceplate and the factory dash, and tight fit on the left side of the face plate. This can't be fixed without drilling into the faceplate or dash, which could compromise the install. Another lesser problem is that the texture of the faceplate is a lot rougher than the factory dash. A few coats of adhesion promoter and trim paint smoothed it out a bit and made it a perfect match. This is the kit Crutchfield recommended for my '07 Mustang, and it looks like it should be the right one, but it's a big disappointment. I've ordered the Metra 95-5812, which comes with the appropriate (and necessary) spacers, and is the faceplate actually recommended by Metra. Once it arrives, I'll update this review. Crutchfield has been very helpful in the past, but this time, they just plain steered me wrong.
Pros:
Fits Pioneer AVH-X5500bhs.
Cons:
Poor fit for 07 Mustang. Texture doesn't match Mustang dash.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Looks good and feels good, installed in my 06 mustang with shaker 1000 on a Kenwood ddx419.
Pros:
easy directions
Cons:
Upon mounting my deck to this kit, the screws were too short to fit through the plastic side plates they gave me and into the side of the ddx419. Very disappointed about that because I should have had it done in less than an hour. However, I went to a hardware store and bought 10-32 1/2" screws and problem was solved for $5.

Incomplete kit

Written By DP, WI on Friday, July 20, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit was free with my Kenwood Nav unit and after trying to complete the installation I understand why. First, I had to enlarge several of the side mounting slots to get the head unit face properly aligned with the mount. And when I tried to install it in the dash, the mount bezel was recessed in the dash trim. It looks like some of the other kits come with spacers and that is what this kit needs to work with my car. You would think someone would have actually tested this from Crutchfield before including it for my application. Furthermore... I called last night for help and they asked for pictures of the issue and promised a call back within an hour. I never heard from them. Considering the $$ I spent on this set-up, that was pretty disappointing.
Cons:
Does not work with my 07 Mustang without addiitonal parts and modifications

I found the DVD player for my son's truck at almost $100 cheaper but purchased from Crutchfield for the tech support and this in-dash receiver kit. It was almost worth the extra $100 but made my life easier during snstall so maybe it was worth the whole $100.

Written By Craig H, Parkville, MD on Saturday, July 07, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When this arrived with my new head unit, I couldn't figure out why it was shipped to me. After studying the instructions, it became obvious this was the interface needed to unify new head unit to my dash. When you follow the directions, it makes your new unit look like an original head unit. Thanks to Crutchfield for adding this to my order at no cost.
Pros:
Makes an aftermarket head unit look like an original.
Cons:
Need instructions to match this to the new head unit. It can be difficult when there are no general directions to explain how this is part of the installation.

Excellent trim pieces worked fine for my Ford Five Hundred and the Clarion CZ401. Combined with the MasterSheet instructions, made installation a snap. Even added a new storage pocket which wasn't available with the old factory stereo
Pros:

Overall this product does what is should do, but there are a few issues. The opening for the double DIN receiver is smaller than any Double Din receiver. To fix this I needed to get out some sand paper and sand the opening wider to fit a double DIN receiver. I couldn't get the Clarion double DIN CX-501 to fit though the opening in the mount and couldn't get an older double DIN receiver I have to fit through the opening either. I had to be patient with the fine grit sand paper and go slowly, so a quick stereo install turned into a several hour ordeal. When installed the Clarion receiver I bought from Crutchfield stuck out of the dash about 1/2". It doesn't look nearly as clean as the factory stereo. I tried pushing the head unit further back in the mount, but none of the mounting holes would line up with the receiver to mount it flush. I also tried changing the side bracket sides to see if it would mount flush. Even when I reversed the side brackets, none of the mounting holes would line up with the receiver to mount it flush. I've read other reviews complaining of the same thing. It makes the install look awkward ad unprofessional. It seems that this kit is a universal kit and maybe it works well in soem FOrd trucks, but its completely designed wrong for the '05-'09 Mustang if you want something that looks as good as the factory install. If my factory receiver wasn't acting flaky, I would have sent the whole order back to Crutchfield.
Pros:
You can sell the other mount that you didn't use to get some money back.
Cons:
It doesn't fit correctly and gives the install a cheap look.

Crutchfield in dash adapters

It works, sort of...

Written By davek, Wappingers Falls, NY on Wednesday, October 26, 2011
 
Crutchfield sent me this kit along with my JVC AVX-640 double din receiver for my 2005 Mustang.

Strictly speaking, it works, but it leaves a bit to be desired. Everything bolted up OK, the brackets fit the radio chassis and the bolt holes lined up properly with the Mustang dash mounts, but when everything is put back together there are visible gaps on both sides between the receiver and dash opening.

Fortunately, I was able to clean up the install by trimming out the receiver with a thin sheet of black craft foam cut to fit perfectly and conceal the gaps, but this should not be necessary. I'm accustomed to much higher quality fit and finish from dash kits, and this one simply doesn't measure up. Prior to my modification, the install looked unprofessional and sloppy...not acceptable for my new $400 receiver.

The kit was free with my receiver, so I suppose I can't complain too loudly, but it didn't meet with my expectations. Ultimately, this kit works, but be prepared to spend some time modifying it to end up with a clean, professional looking installation.
Pros:
Free with receiver.
Cons:
Finished installation leaves unsightly gaps between receiver and dash opening.

looks great in my mustang

Written By just sayin', mtn. states on Thursday, October 13, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this kit to install a conventional stereo into a 2005 mustang. The car was equipped with the shaker 500 factory unit, and i was a bit concerned that going to a smaller (1/2 the size) stereo, would look strange. The kit comes with a plate that has a recessed compartment built in. My car has very limited cargo space, so the recessed compartment is VERY handy! As for visual appeal? No problem... looks good... should have swapped out the stereo a long time ago.

Works

Written By Dave, Minneapolis MN on Saturday, September 03, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works, looks, and fits well. Only problem I had with it was installing the plates to my stereo. The lettering telling you the left and right was upside down, I think for the right side, thus causing a little confusion. Did they mean right looking from the front or from the rear? :) Common sense quickly prevailed, but for free I can't complain too much.

Double Din? Double-Didn't.

Written By Bullet Bill, Charlotte NC on Sunday, June 12, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Double Din install of a JVC XR-810, surround wouldn't fit new radio. The radio case was too wide to seat into the adaptor. There didn't appear to be enough plastic to carve the slot wide enough, so I ended up bending the brand-new head unit steel case, folding the flanges back. And the side plates wouldn't line up with screw holes on case. I swapped left for right, got 2 screws on each side, seems secure enough. I was pretty ticked, this easily doubled the time required for full install. Seems like Crutchfield would be aware of problem, many reports, but only shows up in adaptor reviews. Installed unit looks very good, radio seats fully against adaptor, and adaptor fits dash cutout very nice. Matte finish on plastic does not match the other black dash plastic, but new radio looks and sounds great.

This install kit fit the dash of my F150 beautifully, but was not a good fit to my Clarion CX501. The opening was too small for the radio. I had to modify it slightly to make the Clarion fit into the opening.

Double DIN wouldn't work

Written By SethC, Klamath, OR on Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used the Double DIN piece. But not with out fighting it and finally shaving it down
so that it would work with my Clarion CX501. For some reason, the head unit
would not fit inside the installation piece. It was really close, but just wouldn't go.
After some widdlllin' with my utility knife, I got it to go.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this kit to install a JVC KW-XR610 2DIN head unit in my 2005 Mustang GT. The adapter seemed light duty, but the JVC was a featherweight in contrast to the factory shaker 500 head unit. We have very rough roads in Mississippi, and I have no rattles or squeaks with this install, even after a trip to New Orleans, LA. Good product!

Not a bad kit

Written By Jason, Louisiana on Wednesday, November 11, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I receive the kit in, it looked a little cheap to be honest. But after the
easy installation into the dash without any modification, I quickly changed my
mind. The plastic did have some small gaps but nothing that you would gasp
at. It sat flush with the dash and the extra pocket made playing an iPod on the
stereo a little easier. Not a bad little kit.

I have seen far better face kits

Written By Aaron, College Station TX on Monday, November 10, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Face kit sat flush with dash on the bottom but was inset nearly half an inch at the top of my 08 f150. The clearance around the radio was so poor that it took hours of Dremeling just to get the motorized face of my JVC NX7000 to operate correctly. After LOTS of washers were added between this face kit and the dash I finally got it nearly flush.

Also had to drill new holes in the side of it just to get the radio to mount flush in the dash. The pre-drilled holes were way off.

Ford In-Dash Receiver Kit

Written By adelg670, Orange County ,NY on Wednesday, October 22, 2008
 
I have to work on modifying the provided radio mounting kit because which when you open the front face unit down to load a CD it detaches the face from the radio. there isn't enough space under the face of the radio to prevent this from detaching.

The radio/CD unit is the Blaupunkt Hamburg MP68 with the detachable face plate.

I've got the base model Mustang so this kit looked right at home. I installed a double DIN radio and it was real easy to install with no gaps. Ford OEM radios typically have a rear support but this kit did not supply any usuable adapters for my new radio. It makes for a clean installation, just not fancy.

This kit need some minor adjustment done to it by the manufactury. First thing I had problem with the side attachments, I could not align the open for the screws to fix without making the holes a little wider. Then the I trimmed the sides of the frame to make it fix inside of the center console opening. After the install everything look perfect.

This kit fit perfectly in my 2008 F250 crew cab diesel. I have a Pioneer AVIC D2 and everything lined up perfectly. It was simple to find which bracket hole lined up to the correct holes on the head unit unit. It took no more that 10-15 minutes from start to finish and that included putting the tools away. Great product and looks perfect. I dont know what the people that are complaining about did incorrectly with this product, but it did what it was supposed to do for me. Thanks.

I bought this with a JVC Double Din DVD Player that crutchfield said Fit. But failed to mention that you had to figure out what brackets of the radio had to stay and which had to go.

The DVD Player did not fit with the installation sleeve like it is supposed to. Does not fit with the the plastic trim that comes with the DVD Player. Also had to grind down the bottem plastic to get the DVD Player to open and close.

Fits great in a 2007 Expedition....but you have to work on it, to look

Written By manauta, Crestview, FL on Tuesday, June 03, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I got this dash kit for a double DIN Kenwood DNX8120, at first there was at
least a 3/8 of an inch space on the top and 1/8 on the bottom where the kit
meets the dash. I had to run to a local hardware store and get longer
screws that mount the kit to the dash and about 8 washers to space
mounting bracket to move it forward, to meet with the dash. After that it
seems to look alright. Like I said it fits great, but only after you put in some
work.

Wish it looked a little better

Written By Zembower, Lafayette, LA on Tuesday, May 20, 2008
 
Very easy to install, but does not look "factory". My truck is a Lariat with woodgrain dash accents, and trimmed very clean. The kit works well, but there are little cracks in the corners (most people wouldn't notice), that bother me a bit.

All in all, an easy kit to install that looks pretty good.

I used the adapter with the double opening and the mounts for "stacked"
components. I struggled a little bit because I had to figure out which trim pieces
I needed between the receiver and the adapter. It turned out I needed no trim
pieces including the metal one that wraps around the receiver unit behind the
face. It turned out looking great. My mechanical skill level is about a "4 out
10." In the long run the installation was slightly harder than changing a light
bulb and required no curse words.

Works well.....but

Written By Mark, Alexandria, VA on Saturday, February 16, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Only problem, I have a 2008 F-150 and this kit is for 2004-up (which I guess it doesn't mean 2008). It fit well and everything lined up except for the top of the kit. You can see gaps on the side on the upper half of the kit. So I strolled over to the local home store and went to the electrical section and purchased for approx. $1.83 a pack of 6 1/4 in. rubber Grommets. They worked great. I put 2 up top and the 1/4 in. spaced the top to be even with the dash. You can't even see a problem anymore.

Poor Quality...Poor Fit

Written By Mark, Oklahoma City, OK on Friday, February 01, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Worst quality dash kit I have ever used.
1. Ear tabs didn't line up properly, they sat above the screw hole, not flush to.
When screwed in, the ear tabs bent and flexed...the end result is they broke off.
2. When the kit was install, it left ugly gaps around the radio.

Not a professional look if you have a DIN radio

Written By oppositelock, Westerville, Ohio on Sunday, December 23, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
One of the listed "features" of this kit is a "recessed DIN mount." In layman's terms, this means that your DIN head unit will be mounted 3/4 inch behind the opening in your dashboard. In the Ford F-150, you'll be able to see the retaining clips on the radio bezel and the back of the airbag light. The recessed area allows you to see the rough, uneven plastic on the back and sides of the dash that was never meant to be seen. Finally, it's nearly impossible to remove the faceplate from the head unit. In short, my $700 investment looks like it was put together with bailing wire and duct tape-- the antithesis of professional. I have contacted Crutchfield about this problem. They e-mailed pictures of a completely different mounting kit to prove that this one works. A week later, I'm still waiting for an answer about what can be done to get a different kit.....

Fits well and looks good in 2006 Ford F-150 Super Crew. Holds head unit firmly and securely in place. Last time I used one of these things some 5 years ago, they used to rattle a lot as the top of pocket vibrated against the bottom of the head unit - this flaw has been solved with a spacer lip to prevent exactly this situation from occurring - it's nice to see products improve with time. I noted no real flaws in this version.
