Really makes the install assembly easy. Fit perfectly in 2002 Century. Did not have to modify anything. The dashboard disassemble instructions are real helpful.

Pros: Simplifies the install, no mods needed.

Cons: Instructions were a bit unclear at times regarding the use of spacers and other hardware which really didn't need.

Written By Anonymous, Charlotte, NC on Saturday, August 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The back of the recover kit is not deep enough to reach the hole on bracket inside the cavity, this rest support to the unit on the back bar, thankfully my new pioneer is not heavy, the front screws that connects the kit is sufficient, but if you have a heavier radio you may need a back support.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Doesn't reach the bar on the back of the radio cavity for support the weight of the radio.

Written By MIkeW, Rochetster NY on Saturday, August 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Total junk.

Pros: It fits -- sort of. And it was cheap.

Cons: Biggest complaints: (1) instructions totally stink. Had almost nothing whatsoever to do with the actual process of installing the thing. (2) Didn't fit my vehicle, and now the receiver sags in the dash. I'll have to uninstall and reinstall (which is a pain) with some kind of custom mod, or find a better kit somewhere. GRRRRR.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not as nice as the kit I got from Crutchfield 10+ years ago

Pros: It fits with a little work.

Cons: Kind of thin plastic. Not all tabs, slots, buttons fit exactly where they should. The little tray below the unit is too small to even get your fingers in. I placed the remote for the new radio in there and now I have to find something to use to get it out.

clean look

Written By FullMonty, Glenville, NY on Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed with a DIN size Clarion deck in a 1996 Regal. Has a clean look but the slot/pocket is a little bowed. I folded up the directions and taped them over the pocket area so that the deck sits on them, spaces nicely, and doesn't bounce around. The trim piece to go around the deck didn't fit my application but it looks fine without it.

Pros: clean look, nice deep pocket for storage

Cons: line of plastic at top of pocket is bowed a bit so doesn't look perfect but not bad

Great Dash Kit

Written By WendellRay, Crownpoint, NM on Friday, May 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this kit in a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer and it looks GREAT! Instructions and Installation were simple and a breeze to follow. The kit is perfectly flush with my factory dash cluster and worked perfectly with the single DIN head unit I choose. JVC-X80BT. This dash kit is simple to install and great to modify to fit whatever needs you may have like routing an AUX cord into the little pocket for easy access.

Pros: This kit offers all the hardware you need for installation and looks great with the provided faceplate. You can modify this product all you want for anything you need access to OR make more stable for security purposes.

Cons: Absolutely NONE!

Like many others it arrived broken

Written By Brian, Seattle WA on Sunday, May 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to install a deck into my wife's car for mothers day. The item was broken in half when it arrived so I had to go the the local stereo store to purchase a second one to get it installed in time. Luckily it was only $9 and I saved more then that on the installation package Crutchfield offered. Flimsy product and poor quality control on the part of Crutchfield. If I could tell it was broken immediately when I pulled the package out of the shipping box the person who packed it should've caught it and sent a non broken one.

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Poor quality Arrived broken

The product assembled and worked well, as advertised.

Pros: It fits the stereo and the car like a charm

Cons: The cubbyhole/shelf under the stereo is so shallow that I can't even fit my hand in there. If I were to drop something into that slot, I fear that I would not be able to pull it out without the help of some object or another person with very small hands.

This makes the installation process so much easier. Some slight modifications needed to get a better fit, but nothing major.

Pros: The only way to install an aftermarket stereo!

Cons: I had to modify it a little to get a tighter fit, but you should expect some of that.

Came Broken

Written By Anonymous, Blaine, MN on Sunday, February 09, 2014

On the left side the bracket was cracked and wouldn't hold the stereo, I used some JB weld and left it over night and it fit just fine.

Pros: Fit dash

Cons: Came broken

Good kit for the price

Written By BrianH, Antioch, TN on Sunday, February 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit itself was reasonably priced. Installation was easy and hassle free. The sleeve for the receiver went in nicely and was secure. The only thing I didn't really like was that at the back of the CD storage pocket were four openings, two on either side, top and bottom. I had to inform my wife not to put anything small in this pocket unless she wanted those things to fall through the holes in the back of the pocket into the dash. Bezel around stereo wasn't a snug fit and doesn't take much to pull it off or come loose. Other than that, I am happy with the kit and so is my wife.

Pros: Economical, easy to install

Cons: Holes in back of CD pocket making it possible for small items to fall through into dash cavity. Bezel that goes around receiver face is a loose fit.

could be a little better

the overall look and feel fits into the dashboard well. The quality seems to be decent.

Pros: looks good in the dash, fits well

Cons: did not come with the parts to support the back of the stereo, in fact the parts shown in the docs did not match what I received. I ended up making my own support piece for the rear of my stereo using my own hardware.

Came broken didn't realize this until after Christmas, a month after purchase, had the old radio out and the dash removed before figuring it out. Epoxy glued it and hopefully it will hold. Rear support was much too short to actually support rear of radio, had to alter it to make it be of any help.

Pros: Radio fit well

Cons: Came broken and rear support was of no use

A very functional piece of equipment that works well/is compatible with the radio I purchased. However it does feel and look cheap as well: one of the spacer pieces was broken when I received it and it broke some more when I attempted to install it: the pegs are TOO fragile.

Pros: Easy to use. Functional.

Cons: Cheap build and can break easy during shipping/installation.

Looks amazing and is built very solid. My radio is flush mounted rather than sticking out an inch as the cheap store kits make the stereo do.

Pros: Good looking. Solid. Easy to install.

Cons: Directions didn't suggest using the plastic spacers for my model, but I figured out that it made the unit fit better so I chose to use them.

Scosche GM1583B Looks Great

Written By mbratch, Webster NY on Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used the Scosche GM1583B indash receiver kit to install a single-height CD player in my 2004 Chevy Classic (Malibu). The installation was quite simple, using the metal slide-in shell that is common with the Crutchfield units. The only minor item that I think could improve the assembly would be the addition of some kind of shim or molded "stilt" which would hold the back of the CD player up slightly above the plastic slot below it that forms the bottom half of the whole assembly. Without a shim, pad, or stilt, the radio leans back a little (since it's cantilevered) and causes the face to stick out at the bottom maybe 2 mm. I made my own soft shim using a small piece of cloth and some packing tape, and I used a piece of tape sticky side out to hold it in place. It enforces a gap of ~0.2 inches or so between the bottom of the CD player and the plastic recess pocket below it in the assembly. This worked out well, but I don't see why the assembly can't accommodate this. This dropped my rating from 5 stars to 4.

The finished look on this product is excellent. I've done a Crutchfield kit in several different vehicles and find that on the 2004 Chevy Classic (Malibu) it looks like a factory fit. I am very satisfied with it.

Pros: Excellent fit. Factory look. Easy install.

Cons: Could use a built-in shim or pad or stilt to keep the radio from cantilevering back somewhat when it's been slid into the sleeve in the mount.

Purchased radio and this was a second dash mount kit sent. This one has a lower pocket, and the trim fit perfectly. Prior none pocket dash mount trim piece would not fit my vehicle. Love it.

Pros: easy install and fits great.

Cons: pocket is not sloped or edged, so item like paper, slide right out if medium brakes are applied. Will just put a piece of non- slip pad in there for fix.

This was not my first perches from Crutchfield, as I have come to learn, if your buying a radio for your car this is the place to do it. They emailed me a link of instructions complete with actual photos of my dash and explained in step by step hoe to take my dash od and istall my radio so that everything that worked on my factory radio would work with the radio I bought from them. and there LIVE over the phone support made this prodject a happen. I would not buy a radio anywhere else, as the whole support team does their job.

Written By lr, Nashville, TN on Monday, December 03, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Husband installed and the installation went well. Loved that it came with the receiver and I didn't have to worry about getting the wrong one. However, it came broken. The frame is quite thin and plastic. Once it's in, no problem and it's definitely strong enough with the structure of the dash, but annoying that it was broken. I'm sure Crutchfield would have replaced-- they are GREAT-- but we needed to install quickly for daughter's big birthday, and couldn't wait for replacement. Husband read up about repairing plastic with paper and super glue, and that worked great. Again, once it's in, no problem.

Pros: fits car perfectly, looks good once installed

Cons: fragile before installed

Very poor quality. It fit fine once installed, but was broke the second I first slid the head unit into it. I had to glue it back together and then make brackets to make it sturdy enough.

Somewhat disappointed

Written By JSchell, Kansas City, MO on Monday, November 19, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the most disappointing part of the installation process. The first one I ordered came broken in many pieces, a tribute to it's quality. The installation instructions are very vague, and do not include the proper means to remove the pocket from the upper carriage, which you may have to do for certain installations. There is also no means of keeping the radio supported above the pocket, without home modifications, to prevent the unit from rattling.

Pros: Cheap price

Cons: Poor plastic product

2 DIN to 1 DIN Receiver GM Mounting Kit

Written By John, Boston, MA. on Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit allowed me to easily install a 1 DIN reciever in the space of a 2 DIN factory receiver a 1999 LeSabre, with no modification to the kit or the dash. The fit is not perfect but close enough for my needs. It would be nice if a gaskit was offered as an accessory or supplied with the kit to finish the fit. The pocket in the empty space left by going with a 1 DIN unit is a plus, couldn't find it on other site, most mount kits I found just had a plastic plate in that area. A fit tray or rubberized fitted mat would be a nice accessory for this product, as my mp3 player kept sliding out of the pocket everytime I excelerated, until I put the mp3 player in a rubberized skin.

Pros: Came free as part of the receiver purchase, Ease of install. Fit, Storage Pocket.

Cons: Lack of accessory tray or rubber mat for the pocket, and a gasket for the fit of the face plate. Niether is a big deal.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This worked out ok after a few mods. 1. The 4 front corners had to be filed to a round shape to fit the instrument panel trim back in place and sit flush against the dashboard in a 2003 Park Ave install. 2. Also the radio a Kenwood single din required some mods to secure it from moving in the Receiver Kit. It required a few screws and a set of wood wedges held in place with tape to make the radio not move when inserting or removing a USB/AUX plug.

Cons: It would be nice if it held the radio more securely.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use and mount. Looks great with the radio I bought, Kenwood Excelon KDC-X696, and blends nicely with the dash contours.

Pros: Easy to use.

Cons: Instructions not real clear on removing the case retainer/trim ring.

This mounting bracket worked perfectly with the single DIN JVC car stereo I purchased for my 2002 Chevy Cavalier.

Pros: Perfect fit; not complicated

Good Adapter

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical of replacing a OEM double DIN radio with a single DIN radio. It worked better than my expectations and added an additional pocket for the vehicle.

Pros: Easy of use and fit.

Cons: None

It worked as expected.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a standard one adapter fits all radios and it is better than having no adapter.

Pros: I had no problems installing the radio into the dash board adapter.

Cons: I wonder how you are supposed to attach the radio support to the radio align it to mate with the hole in the dash.

Good Product

Decent enough construction for the price. Fit flush with a factory look in a 2001 Alero, after just a little trimming of the upper corners.

In dash mounting kit

Written By Ted, Mifflinville,Pa. on Friday, June 15, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unit mounted to car great,but got nothing to mount the radio,besides the radios mounting sleeve.I mounted the radio by using electrical tape to first,tape flat rubber blocks to support the back side of the radio,to the kit.Then ,use multiple layers of tape to mount the radio.This turned out to be a very solid mount.Be careful not to cover any more ventilation holes than you have to if you do it this way.Radio manufacturers should figure out a standard way to mount aftermarket radios.

Pros: It was free with the radio

Cons: You are on your own mounting radio to this kit.Face trim will most likely fall off in time.

works just fine!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

worked in my 02 chevy blazer with a kenwood no triming need.

Pros: easy install. has a bottom storage that hold two cd jewel cases and wont let them slide. and enough room on the side for my remote. about !3/4 in so messure your remote if you wanta do the same. i had a double Din and wanted to go to a single and it worked. no triming need on my dash like i was warrned by crutchfield.

Cons: nothing i cant live with. the face plate has a small gap but very had to notice. i only saw it when i was installing because it was 4 inchs from my face. when your driving you cant see it.

This kit did what it was to do but it barely fit and had to trim the opening in the dash just a little.

Cons: Made a little cheap and barely fit.

In Dash Receiver Kit

Written By Jeff, Ft Lauderdale, FL on Monday, May 28, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The In Dash Kit was a perfect fit and an excellent solution for filling the non-standard size radio opening of the original stock unit! The kit makes the installation look like an original factory installation!

Pros: Fit, Finish, and a perfect solution to resolve a non-standard radio replacement.

Cons: none

Perfect in 01 Chevy Cavalier

Written By Francois, Greeley, CO on Sunday, April 15, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After the success i had with the dash kit for my Hyundai Elantra through Crutchfield, my sister in-law wanted to see if we could have similar success with her car. After ordering and installing it, I feel that's a resounding "YES" we bought her a head unit for her birthday separately from Crutchfield, but even at the price we got this and the wiring harness for, I still feel it was a bargain. (best buy can't compete!) We had the choice of using the stereo bezel or the mount that came with it, and we wound up going with the mount. it just looked more pro!

Pros: installation was super-easy! stereo and the pocket look like stock installation! with the dash instructions that came from crutchfield it was great to be able to take apart the dash as it was intended and glue plastic and fix mistakes made by previous "installers" (the ghetto trash who owned the car before, who tore apart the dash like rabid monkeys!)

Cons: wish it had more rounded edges for an even better effect, but this is minor, it still looks pro!

Tight Fit

Written By CraigC, Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in 01 Cavalier. The top of this kit is a little tight to the receiver, any smaller and my faceplate would not have fit. It worked perfectly for me but I suppose others may have a different experience.

Pros: Worked well with 01 Chevy Cavalier.

Cons: Tight fit for top corners of receiver/faceplate, may vary between vehicle models.

Works

Written By Nathan, Vancouver, WA on Saturday, March 17, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It worked OK. I had to bend the tabs to get it to hold the receiver snugly. It is of a real flimsy build as well, I was hoping for something more stout. I did like the fact that it came with a spacer for between the dash and the receiver kit. This made it so I could install a longer receiver into the smaller space of the dash in a 2002 Cavalier. Cruthfield said the receiver probably would not fit, but with the receiver kit and the spacer provided I had no problems.

Pros: Worked, was able to install a longer receiver despite the short dash space with the spacer provided in the kit.

Cons: REALLLLY flimsy and shoddy build. If it was more stout I would have given it a 5 star.

Works perfect in my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire GT. Fits my head unit nice and makes the install look very nice. Very seamless fit behind my trim.

Pros: Good fit. Looks nice. Additional storage space. Secures new head unit nicely.

Cons: None

Add about 1/2" or so between head unit and adapter. you will be set. Adapter allows head unit to sag.

install instructions are real vague they dont really tell you much and they leave you guessing,never could figure how to attach the box to the dash so i ended up doing a terrible job,its in but not totally secured to the inside of the dash as the hardware they give you doesnt seem to fit my dash

This was not even close to fitting in my 96 Aurora. I had to do a lot of customizing to make it work. That said........ I think most mounting kits that would fit multiple cars would need the same thing on this car.

Scoshe Install Kit

Written By TomS, St. Louis, MO on Thursday, July 14, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This install unit allowed a quality finished look to the installation of my head unit in my 2003 Trailblazer. This was not the standard kit Crutchfield recommended for my vehicle but I requested one that would allow a recessed shelf area below my stereo as opposed to just a 'blank' face piece. The support tech searched his data base and found this for me. I could not be more pleased. It went in easily and looks great. Thanks Crutchfield!

Flip down

Written By Jesus, Houston Tx. on Monday, June 15, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2003 GMC Sierra; I had to call back after noticing that the mounting kit was not in my initial shipment. After speaking with a rep. he told me he would take care of that and send me a mounting kit. He guided me online to look at the mounting kit, but after a closer look the website stated that this mounting kit did not fit my truck. I received the mounting kit and what do you know it fits the truck perfectly and the plastic seems sturdy and looks like it will handle vibration well.

However, the receiver I purchased (Dual XHD7714) has a flip down face in order to access the CD. The problem is that the trim that the mounting kit comes with does not allow the face to flip all the way down therefore not allowing access to insert a CD. I figured that Cruchfield would have the mounting kits and receivers paired up so that these types of issues would not come up. I will have to make my own modification in order to allow the face to flip out completely. I would not recommend this product.

this item fits???

Written By Martin, central US / midwest on Thursday, October 02, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this item fits??? Highly doubtful....the only thing I was able use in this adabtor kit was a few screws...ended up using most of the old face plate and mounting blocks...fabercating my own facia/adabtor plate out plexiglass...the instructions that came with it were not very informative... they were VERY genaric and pictures that came with it were not very clear , didn't seem to match the application, way to dark and grainy to be of much assistance.

when I call the tech servise for Crutchfield they insisted that they would work....there was NO WAY the adaptor kit going to work...simply put, it wouldn't reach to the old mounting block or the dash panel to attach to anything significant.
