Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Overview: The Universal water-resistant radio cover protects your car stereo receiver in marine applications (or open off-road vehicles). The kit allows you to install most DIN or 2-shaft receivers. No special tools are required to install the cover.

Note: Installing a DIN receiver requires cutting the shaft cups from the frame.

Hinged Cover: The kit features an Accu-view tinted hinged cover with a spring-loaded latch. The heavy-duty hinged cover is supported by dual springs which support the cover while it's open.

Water Resistance: The kit is equipped with a foam gasket to protect the receiver from water seeping in from around the frame. Also, the outer frame has a rubber ring gasket around the receiver opening to protect the face plate from water entering from around the closed cover.

Dimensions: The cover has the following dimensions:

  • Outer Dimensions: W=8.948", H=4.206", D=1.909" (D=4.172" with cover open)
  • Internal Cover Dimensions: W=7.5" H=2.36" (maximum allowable space for receiver's trim ring)
  • Internal Depth: 1.465" (maximum receiver nose depth allowable)
  • Sleeve Opening: W=7.17" H=2.08" (allowable space for receiver's DIN sleeve or chassis--some slight filing to kit opening may be required)

not bad

Written By river rat, grand island, Nebraska on Tuesday, January 07, 2014
 
Great way to add extra protection in my river jeep. However it will not waterproof it. Buy an aftermarket mounting unit and a marine receiver and mount it in the glove box and once it's all hooked up silicone all openings and it keeps it nice and dry for the most part when you get into the deep water! It's extra work but worth it if you don't want to keep buying new receivers every week

The spring loaded cover makes no attempt to stay open, apparently a defective product. I returned it and will try something else.

Looks nice. The Metra's big, rounded corners didn't cover the entire cutout of my dash.
Pros:
Looks well built.
Cons:
Didn't fit my application.

Helps, not a cure for wet use in a Jeep

Written By Paul, Maryland on Saturday, January 10, 2009
 
Crutchfield specifically lists this as a way to protect a radio in your Jeep. This certainly helps protect the faceplate, IF you have no issues with dash interference. But in my TJ, water reaches the back and top of the radio area through the dash. This is NOT an alternative to a marine rated head unit in a Jeep you really do get WET, but it could be the final piece in keeping a marine rated radio dry in truly wet use of your Jeep. By itself, it will NOT be enough to keep a non-marine head unit from shorting out when spashing through the wet stuff with the top off.

Take note, though, marine rated head units tend to be water resistant, not waterproof; you can't submerge them.

I have a Clarion CMD4 radio and would like to know if this would fit it? I know the radio itself has double din face, but a single din backing. Please let me know [ John  Mar 15, 2014 ]
