Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install. Flip cover performs as advertised. I am using this cover to protect a non marine alpine unit as a marine unit in my boat. There is larger selection and better features on non marine units works great with no problems

Pros: Ease of installation

Cons: Little spendy

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wasn't sure if this would work on my boat however I just had to open the space vacated by a Clarion receiver. It makes it simple to open the cover and close it compared to the original.

Pros: Smooth action when opening with a push of a button.

Cons: Having to cut a larger hole in the console. The cover disappears inside the console when opened.

Just what i needed. Used it on my Harley fairing to cover the radio.

Pros: Ease of installation and use.

Cons:

Not a true marine product.

Written by: MadhouseSS from Pueblo West, CO on November 15, 2013

Reading the description of this product makes one believe it is suitable for marine use which is incorrect. I replaced an older version faceplate cover with this one and within a sort period of time the sliding face of this product did not want to slide open smoothly. I had to clean a small amount of dust from the sliding tracks. That is a common occurrence yet not this product's major flaw. The biggest problem with this product involves it actually channeling water directly to the head unit it is suppose to be protecting. In the description it clearly states it has a foam gasket which apparently did not help keep water away from my expensive head unit. It took a five minute afternoon drizzle to put my Kenwood into some sort of flashing "protection" mode. I cut the power to the unit and allowed it to dry which the unit worked fine a day later. I used silicone to seal the back of this cover to the boat in order to keep the water out. No dice. The problem is the sliding face plate allowed water into the head unit. The next time I was out it rained again. This time there was not hope for the Kenwood. It no longer works because I trusted a product that claimed to be a marine product and clearly was not. The best use for this product does not involve an application where it

Pros: Looked like a factory part

Cons: Head unit suffered water damage from rain. Flimsy sliding door that is stubborn and does not want to slide open unless it is super clean. Latch holding door down opens itself. Plastic got hair line scratches easily.

Very nice stereo cover

Written by: Chuck C. from Texas on October 18, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a really nice cover. Worth the price. Fit my stereo perfectly. Operates flawless. I really like the spring loaded front cover operation. Hoping to get a lot of years service out of it.

Pros: Nice cover that provides protection to the stereo.

Cons: The overall footprint of the cover installed was bigger than I realized. But that is my fault for not understanding the measurements before I installed it.

This cover works great, but throw away the template that they sent in the package. Take your own measurements and make the necessary hole cuts. You could imagine how frustrating it was to install with a outdated template!

Pros: Works great once installed.

Cons: Template needs updated.

Crutchfield response on August 26, 2013 Thanks for your review. We're letting the manufacturer know about the problem with the template. The dimensions listed on the template are correct, but you're right; they do not match the dimensions of the template printout.

Add bulk and no protection!

Written by: joeysparadise from Branford, FL on August 13, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The smoky cover just flaps open with the slightest breeze of air...literally! What you end up with is a bulky frame around your exposed receiver. The latch mechanism is plastic and of poor quality... complete design flaw. The slightest vibration or touch opens the cover. Driving the boat down the road, on the water et al.... unless the vessel/vehicle is sitting absolutely still, will elicit such a response. this provides no protection whatsoever. I hope crutchfield will test this product and offer a better design. They also sent me a different model free of charge, it looks like it will stay closed more or less (Metra-99 cover...). Go with that one. Because now I'd have to drill new holes in my boat and caulk the old ones from this Scosche because the Metra is slightly less bulky.

Installed this cover in the past. It looks good. The only issue I had was that it did not want to stay latched. Hope this one works better. Other then the latch issue it worked very good. [ MICHAEL L  Mar 01, 2016 ]
