Written By Jim Mc, Birmingham, Al on Thursday, February 19, 2015

This Sony MEX-N6000BH car stereo that I bought from Crutchfield didn't come with a case. I had to buy this product to protect the removable faceplate. It has plenty of room and is very well padded.

Pros: Plenty of space, well padded, great price

Cons: None yet

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like it a lot! I especially like the velcro belt strap. Its nice not having to risk putting it in your pocket to get broken. I just wish it had an inner hard case to protect it from bumping.

Pros: Needs a hard case for inside.

Cons: Love the belt strap.

Nice case

Written By Bryan, Midwest on Sunday, April 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice case, just the right size. I wish the case was a hard case instead of a soft one. The protection would be much better. Right now this case protects from scratching. When I pick up the case with the radio front in it, you can hear the buttons being pressed.

Pros: well made, nice size

Cons: soft case, not hard side

A bit large but...

Written By JJC, Nebraska on Monday, March 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While this case is exactly what the description said it is, it is a bit too large for the DEH-X4600BT faceplate, but it will come in handy storing USB's and the extra USB cables I purchased along with the removal tools for the stereo. Keeping it all in one place helps, but this case won't be used by us for the faceplate.

Pros: Just as described. Has other uses.

Cons: This will not please some. A hard case would be better. The construction of this does not give me too much faith in it's durability.

Case is great for protecting faceplate. It should come up from Crutchfield for everyone who buys a radio with removable face plates.

Pros: lots of room to fit multiple face plates

Cons: I added pull tab to zipper so it was easier to grab

Not bad

Written By Derek, Wichita, KS on Thursday, January 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't really complain, it does what it's supposed to do. Your faceplate should be safe. I would rather have a hard shelled one though. On my unit the volume clicks in to select options, so if I carry in an inside jacket pocket for example, I feel it clicking anytime it bumps into my arm or body. It's probably nothing but I'm an anxious person and I worry that it will wear out faster. If I didn't work in an area that smash and grabs were popular it wouldn't really matter.

Written By Fishgutz, Fleming Island FL on Monday, August 19, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice quality case for my car stereo faceplate. Well padded. Just a little oversized so there is room for a flashdrive or two or an Ipod cord. Great price, too. Can't go wrong. It has a belt loop on it so you can actually wear it. Chicks dig a guy with a good car stereo and they can tell you have one when you wear the case on your belt with the faceplate inside. Hmm. Maybe I should put the case in my pocket instead of wearing it on my belt.

Pros: Well made. Nice padding. Great price. Stylish!

Cons: None

SoundKase DFK1X Review

Written By XPonce25, Salinas, CA on Sunday, July 07, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second time I've purchased this case. The first time, I purchased it for my Alpine car stereo faceplate because basically, the plastic case it comes with sucks. It's plastic & after a while, it just won't shut. I bought this case again because I recently bought a used car & the car stereo faceplate it came with didn't have a case. I absolutely love this case.

Pros: It's soft, you can zip it up, & it provides excellent protection for the faceplate.

Cons: The zipper on my first case came off.

Guys at Crutchfield have done it again. This little faceplate case does the job and won't hurt the pocket book one bit! Strong work team.

Pros: Low cost Protects your faceplate from scratches

Cons: Soft case. Maybe a more solid outside with the same soft inside would be a little better to protect/prevent damage.

Can't go wrong with the Scosche SoundKase DFC1X, it's definitely the best head unit faceplate case compared to the plastic POS case that came with my Alpine CDE-122.

Written By Joe, Miami, FL on Friday, January 04, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good looking case. I would have preferred a more rigid case, like the ones made out of hard plastic. The zipper can scratch the face of your head unit if you're not careful while inserting or removing the face plate. I got this one because I didn't see any other options.

Pros: Good looking case.

Cons: Not rigid enough. Zipper can scratch the face plate.

This case is too large and bulky for a radio faceplate. I would return it, but it'll cost as much to ship it back as I paid for it. But I don't recommend this product.

Crutchfield response on Friday, August 24, 2012 We have refunded the price of this product, and forwarded the comments to our Product Research team to evaluate the fit of this case.

Oversized, but works

Written By Jake, GA on Friday, August 10, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's soft, it zips, it stores and protects my receiver's faceplate. Yay. But I think it was designed to fit every possible single DIN faceplate, and that means it is oversized. That's nice if you want to put your remote control and your iPod in the case along with the faceplate. I can actually fit two faceplates in the case at the same time! I would rather Scosche trim this down to a slimmer design, or offer two sizes.

Pros: soft and durable materials, adequate padding

Cons: Too big for just a faceplate, just adequate padding

Love it.

Written By Tyson, Aliso Viejo on Thursday, July 12, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This case is exactly as described. Soft, fits the faceplate. It even has a little Velcro strap thingy to attach to your belt. I don't know what kind of a dork would actually attach this to his/her belt.. but I could see attaching to a backpack or purse strap...i guess. One user said the inside scratched his faceplate. I highly doubt that. The inside is some kind of mesh, but not abrasive. For my stereo: Kenwood KDC-952BT, the bag is a bit bulky, that is to say there is plenty of room in there for an additional faceplate if I wanted. Let's just say that it's roomy. The only reason that this comes close to being an issue is that I put the bag into a floor-mounted lockbox in my truck when leaving my car unattended. If the bag were less bulky (though I hardly consider it to be bulky), but if it specifically sized for my specific faceplate, it would fit into my safe better. As it is, I have to struggle a little bit to get it to fit inside the box. I can't imagine that many others use a floor-mounted lockbox so this is probably not a concern for most people. However, i highly recommend the use of a lockbox. There are many affordable options online that you can tie/loop to your seat frame with a small steel cable for keeping items like this safe while you are away from your car and don't want to carry items with you (i.e. faceplate, wallet, cell phone, pistol, substances that may or may not be "controlled" (prescriptions), etc.) I would highly recommend this soft case to others.

Pros: Soft. Fits faceplate. Velcro strap. It loves me. I love it.

Cons: Could be slightly smaller to fit the faceplate better. However I can't see this being a problem for most people. Inside could be softer but certainly no risk of scratching faceplate in my opinion.

Faceplate Case

Written By Tom H., St. Louis, MO on Thursday, July 12, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This case works okay. It's a little cumbersome due to two things. It doesn't open up completely. You have to stick the faceplace into the unit. And, the interior of the case is a soft material that grabs onto the connection pins while trying to put it in and out. I appreciate the inside being protective of the front of the faceplate but it isn't a smooth transaction putting in and taking out.

Pros: Solid material with good protection

Cons: The soft interior material grabs onto the connection pins on the back of the faceplate and is irritating to get in and out.

Scratches faceplate.

Written By P-Dog, Waterbury Ct. on Sunday, April 01, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Minimal padding and scatchy lining, lining has scatched the faceplate on my stereo (isnt this what it was supposed to prevent). Very cheaply made and a poor value. Dont buy this product. Not fleece lined like the one describerd by "Better than I thought" or as thickly padded as described by "Great case". Must be a different supplier.

Pros: None

Cons: Subpar materials.scatchy lining,almost non-existant padding.

The case is fine. I should have done a little closer looking, it is much too large for my needs. The way it was presented I thought it was purpose built for my deck. If I would have looked closer I could have used an old sun glass case.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am a Crutchfield repeat customer, and every time I purchase another stereo head unit, I get another one of these Scosche Soundkase DFC1X soft cases to store & protect the detachable faces of my units, be wether Alpine, Kenwood, or Pioneer, which are my top three brands. These are universal cases and will work with any and all of the stereo head unit brands out there, as long as they're DIN 1 size, and not DIN 2 or double size stereos. They also serve to store your stereo's remote control, if applicable. I also end up buying some spare ones in case they get lost, and for this price, I can afford to. I would highly recommend everyone to get at least one of these, they are great!
