Good Stuff

Written By Ken, Philadelphia on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
 
After spending $30.00 at the juck yard for an OEM bracket and didn't even fit, I decided to purchase this kits for my 1995 Honda Accord for a change. It is very easy to install and fit perfectly and looks like a pro job. I didn't even read the direction that came with it. I call Crutchfeild to see if I need to do any thing else and was told 'you are good to go'.
Pros:
Easy to install. Fit and look perfect. Crutchfeild support team is right by your side.
Cons:
None

Installed this on Acura Integra 94. This does fit after a few modifications. You'll need a saw and a pair of clippers. The bad part is you cant really lock it down to anything very well. Make sure to bring your stereo plate with you when you leave your car!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product does what it was mad to do. Pocket is on bottom is a nice feature to fill in the gap in the dash.
Pros:
Instructions are good and looks good in the dash.
Cons:
Unit is all plastic, so you need to be gentle with the install. There is a lot of weight resting on the in dash kit and it is not supported until you reinstall the vehicle dash. At least for the Honda Accord install.

OK install kit

Written By umina323, Folsom, CA on Friday, March 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This installed pretty easily into my car... installation instructions were OK... they missed a few screws and some info that would have been useful, AND the pictures shown for how it actually attached to the car were completely wrong... but I figured it out easily, and it did work. The plastic's not straight (it's kinda bowed) so it's very clear that it's not OEM and sorta sticks out like a sore thumb and makes my aftermarket deck look cheap or incorrectly installed (This was not my fault... it was warped before I even installed it).

HOWEVER, it works and it was free, so I'm not complaining.
Pros:
Works
Cons:
Instructions are nearly useless Looks cheap

I was very impressed with this dash kit!!! The directions were very easy, but it was basically common sense to install. I just checked the directions to see if i did it right. It fit perfectly, all i had to do was break off to tabs because i didn't need them for my car. (95 Accord)

Easy to install. Fit perfectly.

Perfect

Written By Daniel J, Stockton, CA on Thursday, November 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed this in my 95 4dr Integra GSR

There are 2 tabs on each side that clip into place. The instructions say to clip off the to tabs on the top side. I elected not to initially because it didn't make sense too. but the fitment was shoddy. Decided to finally clip off those 2 top tabs as per instructions and it snapped in like an OEM unit!
Pros:
Crutchfield's great price, OE Fitment; SIMPLE
Cons:
there were a few extra pieces that it comes with depending on the deck type you have. It confused me so I had to do a lil trial and error. the instructions explain the differences but this being the first time I did my own install so I was new to it.

Not 100% fitment, but still good enough

Written By Damien V, San Antonio, TX on Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this for my Accord that had a radio but not receiver kit. The kit was very easy to assemble and install. The only problem was that there is no ISO mounting screws to properly secure the head unit against theft, but thats Hondas fault not this install kit.

My only problem was the fitment was 8/10 and the receiver itself was pointing to the passenger side. I removed and reinstalled and I couldnt get it to point straight out. It wasnt too big of a deal but still annoying at times.
Pros:
Instructions are great Fit was decent Has a pocket Does the job
Cons:
Receiver was a little crooked

Uncomfortably Snug Fit

Written By Anonymous, New Jersey on Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall it does the job, but not very well at all.
Pros:
The trim looks fine.
Cons:
The fit was off by about half an inch, causing me to have to force it into the dash, putting a lot of stress on this piece, as well as the surrounding interior panels. We'll see how it holds up after a few weeks. The disassemble instructions for a 99 Acura CL are completely incorrect. If you have this model, you will find the Accord instructions much more helpful. The original stereo mount is metal, and this one is a much flimsier plastic.

3 stars, would try a different kit next time

Written By Konvict_1, Seattle, Wa on Monday, December 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The fitment of the product was a C+ at best. The opening in kit for the deck was actually slightly ovaled out in that it bowed outwards in the middle. This allows the deck's mounting bracket to be seen slightly when the receiver is in the slot with the trim ring. If i ever take it out for some reason, i'll paint the mounting pocket/bracket black so it is less noticeable. I also didnt like how the kit with the deck installed "slumped forward" and did not support its own weight when mounted to the car in its stock location with the stock two bolts. the install kit uses the frame of center console to support the front edge of the deck and hold it upright. I was not a fan of this. It needs to come with a sturdier bracket.

Also, the directions for disassemble of the car missed a critical screw thats buried in the center console. Thankfully I happen to have done some work back there before and knew of the screw and didnt snap the powel/tang/screw off but for someone new to this car, they have a 99% chance of doing so.

The other kit available through crutchfield got such low reviews that i tried this one. In the future ill pay a few dollars for a better fitting, heavier built installation kit
Pros:
Easy install
Cons:
not that sturdy and uses the center console frame for support rather than being strong as a stand alone piece.

Gets the job done...well!

Written By Derek M, Santa Cruz, CA on Monday, July 16, 2012
 
I used this to install a "hand-me-down" Sony MEX-1HD into my girlfriend's '97 Accord LX. Getting the old stereo out was more difficult than popping in the new one with the dash kit. The fit is flawless. At first I had a gap between the bottom of the pocket and the dash faceplate, but then I lifted up on the pocket and pushed the bottom lip in simultaneously and everything snapped into place perfectly. Looks great with the rest of the trim. I had no issues with the supplied instructions, just had to follow a car-specific set of instructions first before moving on to the general installation directions. Took me just over an hour to start and finish the job with a long dinner break in the middle, so I'd say 40 minutes tops as an absolute beginner working fairly slow.

Fits with a bit of a gap

Written By EnergySamus, California on Friday, May 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installation was easy using a Sony CDX-GT565UP in a 5th Generation Accord EX Coupe. Like others have said, if you are using a DIN, bend the tabs on the sleeve, it does make for a tighter fit. The only problem is that on the right side of the kit, there is a small gap between the console and the kit that is not present on the left side... Not noticeable unless you look closely though.
Pros:
Remove the old one, slide this one right in. Simple/easy to follow instructions are included. Looks like the original.
Cons:
A bit plastic-y, but still sturdy. Left a small gap that wasn't present before.

Worked Great in 94 accord

Written By Piston99, Los Angeles, Ca. on Saturday, March 10, 2012
 
This worked great in a 94 accord. I was skeptical at first that nothing would be there to support the front of the radio but found uot that the black full length factory bezel takes care of the front just fine.

The only thing I wish the kit had included was the 2 screws that allow the attachment of the kit's rear support to the factory bracket in the bottom of the radio opening. If you are removing an existing radio you would already have these screws. A trip to the hardware store for 2 M5.8 x16 mm screws and 2 M6 washers was what I need to complete the install.
Pros:
Easy 10 minite install. it took longer to solder the wires from the facatory harness adapter to the radio harness than mount the radio. Nice having a pocket. below the radio. I am not sure why the Crutchfield shopping cart defaults to the other model (120997890) with no pocket and no rear support.
Cons:
Wish it had included the two required M5.8 x16 mm screws and 2 M6 washers to mount the rear support of the kit to the car.

The receiver kit has a different finish than the black plastic in by dash board; it's more textured and darker, so it sticks out a bit. Also, it's not completely flush with the dashboard, so I can see some of the top of my silver radio, between the receiver and the dashboard.

Follow directions and have patience

Written By Fourspeed, Wisconsin on Monday, October 24, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After reading the reviews, I was worried that this would fit poorly. Happily, it fits just fine.

First, don't worry about the directions. They're fine. There is a section specific to each car model, then a section the applies to all models. I put this in a '94 Accord. The side tabs must be removed - that is plainly shown in the instructions. I had no issues with fit.

If using a DIN pocket, bend the tabs on the metal DIN sleeve BEFORE sliding it into this. It'll snap in and fit tighter.

The plastic bracket seems flimsy, but when installing the factory trim, move this adapter up slightly, and it will be supported on the front lower edge by the factory trim piece. The plastic rear bracket plus the support in front is sturdy enough.
Pros:
1. Does what it should. 2. Rather than the other model that gives you a 1/2 hole, this kit gives the factory-style "pocket". 3. Included with my stereo.
Cons:
Two screws suppied seemed to be too small for the holes, but they did the job.

This unit came as part of the package and I'm glad I didn't spend money on it. The instructions were poor quality (thanks to Crutchfield support for helping) and the quality of the product is "acceptable" at best. I had to modify the unit to fit properly in my car (per instructions) and the unit looks somewhat cheap. It did end up working in the end, but upgrade if you want a higher end look.

Honda In dash Receiver kit

Written By Boilerknight, Milwaukee, WI on Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Well, Instructions are pretty much junk. It confuses you in thinking you have to install it 3 ways when you should only choose 1. And by choose I mean YOU decide which 1 you think you'd like to try. I chose the sturdiest 1, and to do that I had to cut and manually carve until the unit fit the way the directions said they should have already!!!. The assembly didn't slide into place, and if not for the screws on the base that attach to the car AND the cars dash panel, the whole assembly would be kinda wobbly when I drove. Thank god I left a whole weekend for me to figure this out!

Fits Perfect, Installs easy, Looks Cheap

Written By Matthew "Whitey" White, Fairfax, VA on Thursday, March 03, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Had a 1995 with a stereo and separate CD player bought at the time the car was
purchased. The LCD on my OEM car stereo had to go and the CD player wouldn't
read burned CDs or MP3. I bought one unit (Kenwood KDC-MP342U) which had both
CD and stereo. Then I had to "fill" the hole where the separate CD player used
to be. This kit worked perfectly, was easy to install, and fills the space
perfectly. The only drawback is that it looks like cheap black plastic when
installed. Not that the interior of a 1995 Honda Accord is anything to shake a
stick at but it would be nice if they had kits that look more in unison with the
car's interior.

It is what it is

Written By Jared, San Diego, Ca on Monday, June 29, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
How much can you really review a kit like this?

It felt ridiculously cheap, the plastic wasn't very sturdy at all. The top portion (rectangle) where it connects to the pocket is not well built. I'm not sure if mine cracked during shipping or if I did it. I really doubt I did considering nothing as far as abuse occurred, and I am really OCD when doing installs and take a lot of care.

Not that I expected it, but the pocket being that it is a slick plastic is worthless to hold things in (my decks remote in this case) as it will just slide out as you accelerate. I'll have to put a bit of rubber padding in there to give it some friction.

The directions could have been better, but needless to say I did get it installed and it looks good, it's just not well built in my opinion. Considering this needs to hold an expensive piece of electronic equipment, you'd like to see better quality.

a decent kit

Written By tomcat, TX on Tuesday, April 07, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this kit for my self-installation of a single DIN head unit to replace
the Double DIN factory cd player in my 97 TL. It's a good kit - however, I
wish I had been more patient in trying to get it to fit in the factory harness.
In addition to the top 2 tabs, i also removed the bottom tabs as was
mentioned by the previous 2 reviewers to get it to fit flush --- the problem
is that the weight of the headunit causes the bottom trim of the kit to
protrude without the bottom 2 clips keeping it flush with the harness - if
there was a way to support the rear of the source unit to the mounting
harness, this could be prevented (I had no radio backstrap and the rear
support helped brace the rear some but I felt not enough to prevent
vibration movement while on the road) I ended up buying another kit from
a local store & kept the lower tabs for support . If I could do it over, I'd
keep the lower tabs for support - maybe alter them somewhat as needed
for a good fit but keep them. I wish the kit had had extended to the rear
support bar of the factory harness to allow a fixed support.

For the unit to fit flush with the finished bezel, I had to remove both clips on the Radio Housing (the instruction say just remove the upper clips).
As I have installed other after market units in this vehicle, I was not surprised nor thwarted by need modifications.

Great looks when installed. Really clean finish, I was very impressed.

The install was rough in my 96 Acura TL. It tells me to cut off the top pair of snap in connectors which I did. I get everything in, and realize the bottom isn't flush because you need to cut off the bottom ones too, so I remove the WHOLE thing again. Cut off the bottom connectors and then it slides in properly. It wasn't horrible I suppose but took me pry 20 mins longer than it should have to get everything in and out.

Like I said once it is there, it looks clean and professional. My unit is very safe I don't worry about it going anywhere, it was just tough to get in even when following the directions exactly.

Metra 99-7892 In-dash Receiver Kit

This kit worked as expected for the most part. In a 97 Acura TL, I had to insert a screw through the factory mount into this one to stablized it at the bottom of the dash. After that it was very solid. Looks really nice within the dash for not having a double din receiver. Instructions were clear and covered a great many Hondas and Acuras.

Metra 99-7892 In-dash Receiver Kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Being a Honda technician for over 8 years, I was fairly impressed with the quality of the kit. The installation in my 96 Accord wagon proved very simple. The only downside of the kit is when I installed the sleeve for the radio I found that the hole was a little too large for the radio to fit snug. All that was required was to add a few thin shims under the sleeve and the radio fit flush. Overall a good product. The instructions that were included are very well written and should make this an easy project for anyone.
