You bought a 2006-up Honda Civic coupe, but its console makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. This Scosche HA1561 dash kit replaces your console, and it's a perfect match for the color, texture, and contours of the dash in your Honda. It allows you to install an aftermarket DIN-sized (2" tall) stereo, with a pocket underneath, or double-DIN (4" tall) stereo, while maintaining all Honda heating, ventilation, and air conditioning controls.

Good product, instructions dectptive

Written By dcdttu, Texas on Wednesday, November 18, 2015

When I received the product there was no mention that my double-din stereo needed to be installed directly to this kit, without the mounting sleeve that it came with. The radio instructions didn't say that, the Scosche kit instructions didn't say that, and Crutchfield didn't say that either. The screws that came with the Kenwood unit I bought weren't even long enough to work because they were designed to use the sleeve. So there I was at 10:30 at night, confused as anything at the instructions so I called Crutchfield. They quickly told me that there are no instructions for what I needed to do to my Civic, and that the screws wouldn't work and I would have to go buy new ones. This is not what you want to hear at 10:30 at night when your car's dash is strung all over your garage.

Also, there's plenty of room for the sleeve if the dash kit would have been made right. I have no idea why it's made this way. Now, any time I need to get into the back of the head unit I have to take my entire dash apart because I can't use the sleeve. Not cool.

Additionally, my A/C controls barely fit, and some of the buttons stick. It doesn't seem a perfect fit.

Pros: It technically worked, barely.

Cons: Can't use double DIN sleeve with stereo installation, requiring you to mount your stereo directly to a '09 Honda Civic. A/C Controls didn't fit well into the Scosche dash replacement piece. Buttons stick. No instructions telling me that I would need to mount my stereo directly with screws that I would have to buy separately.

Crutchfield response on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 Once we saw this review and the customer contacted our Tech Support team, we began to reevaluate the information we display for double-DIN kits. These kits do not require the mounting sleeve that generally come with new radios. We're also updating the availability of a package of screws we offer (item 120ISOPK) to help attaching the dash kit to the car stereo.

Pretty nice fit

Written By John S, Texas on Sunday, October 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Darn near perfect fit - color match was perfect - easy fit, was impressed

Pros: Perfect color match

Cons: Needed to trim the a/c trim opening. The buttons were sticking on the recirculation - not a big thing, took a razor blade and just shaved a little bit at a time until it fit just right.

Written By Scott S. - North Aurora, IL, Illinois on Thursday, October 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So helpful in getting the aftermarket stereo to look stock. It is a bit thinner than the stock dash piece so use a light hand- but once installed it looks like it came on the car from the factory.

Pros: Looks stock and matches the car almost perfectly. Made installation breeze.

Cons: A bit fragile so use a light hand when tightening down nuts.

Color was a little off, but very accepable

Written By Tim in NY, New York on Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash kit was pretty well built, but I had to file down the slot for the AC buttons. They were getting stuck in the 'down' position when I first installed the buttons. Yes, I tried moving them first, but there was too much plastic around the bottom. The OE screws cracked a few of the screw holes when I installed the hazard button and OE HVAC controls but it's holding real nicely regardless. The color was ALMOST perfect- you'd only see the difference if you stared at the two panels coming together for a while. The texture was perfect, and it went together real well. Overall, it's usable, and looks good.

Pros: Looks good, nice fit and finish on the dashboard itself.

Cons: Not so good fit and finish around the HVAC controls, needed some filing to allow buttons to work freely. Some screw holes cracked when using the OEM screws to reinstall the buttons, etc.

Scosche HA1561 Dash Kit - 8.15/10

Written By Jason, Maryland on Tuesday, August 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield ships fast and complete which I think softens me up so I'm not so critical :-)

The unit is a bit "crispier" (delicate) than was hoping but install went pretty smoothly. I took the advice of other reviewers and slowly screwed the head unit and pocket into place. The finish texture and look/feel is different than stock, but I think it's acceptable and I believe on the owner/installer (aren't we all both?) will only notice if they are *looking* to see the difference. Although a bit flimsy when apart, all the pieces come together fairly well and I haven't notice any shaking or movement on my single DIN unit. I did have to sand down the plastic near the HVAC controls to prevent my defroster button from sticking. It was actually quite a bit of sanding, so be careful you don't scratch the visible surface when sanding (I think the seams are where my fitment issues were). The pocket is great to store my phone, Sansa Clip (yeah, I still use Rhapsody) and USB Drive with plenty of room.

Initial impression of quality: 6.1/10 Price: 9.7/10 (especially with one-day free ship - thanks C-field) Fit: 8.3/10 (sanding, filing, squeezing, pushing, etc.) Finish 8.5/10 (how it looks compared to stock)

Since the OEM navi bezel with comparable hardware/brackets was ~$160 at the dealer, I would likely go this route again simply for the cost savings.

Pros: Cost, one day free ship

Cons: Material quality and fit and finish - although at this price point I don't think I'm that disappointed. If this were ~$100, I would expect much more.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash does fit technically fit in my 2010 honda civic. But A/C controls do not fit perfectly, the A/C knobs don't twist with ease anymore, and I can see that it has a big tolerance to fit many models

Pros: Installs securely

Cons: Not a exact perfect fit to my standards or to the stock dash before

Scosche HA1561 Dash Kit

Written By Joey B., Virginia on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The color, texture, and contour is ever so slightly off, and there are some small gaps around the passenger airbag light and hazard light buttons. The mounting/screw holes are a bit fragile as well, so make sure you have those screws lined up perfectly. Wish the ISO brackets weren't plastic-- they don't inspire a lot of confidence that they're going to hold up the head unit. Otherwise, it snapped into the dash and lined up pretty much perfectly.

Pros: Lines up perfectly with dash

Cons: Small gaps around buttons Plastic components are flimsy Color, texture, and contours are not a "perfect match," as advertised

Looks great! It took a little time getting the radio just right but worth every minute! Color isn't an exact match but very close! So thankful to be able to remove factory unit!

Pros: Works great, looks good, color is close

Cons: Bottom brackets should be metal not plastic.

Great product. Color matched good, and it was easy to install.

Pros: Easy to install. Sony XSP-N1BT Double DIN unit fit great. good color match. Had no trouble with my climate control knobs

Cons: Does slant back a little more than I like. My screen is my phone so I don't really have trouble with the sun.

Bad angle for '08 Civic

Written By Jack, Nevada on Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I give it a second star because for the most part it was easy to install. The low rating is for 2 reasons. One is that my "max AC" button sticks. I was able to take it back apart and drill the holes a little bigger so I could adjust the heater unit just enough so that the button doesn't stick. The second, and biggest reason, is because it angles too much upward. This would seem to make sense so that it's easy for the driver and passenger to view the screen. However, during most parts of the day, in a Honda Civic the windshield lets a lot of sun in straight down on the dash and completely washes out the radio screen. During the middle of the day, the screen is washed out 3 out of 4 driving directions. They really need to instead try to make the screen straight vertical, or inset it further into the dash to get some shade. Not sure if I can do anything at this point since that is the design. Perhaps they will read this review and consider a different design.

Pros: Easy to install Looks like a factory finish

Cons: Slants upward allowing the sun to wash out the radio screen Heater unit did not fit well enough, causing one button to stick, until I was able to modify it to work.

Be ready to modify

Written By Anonymous, Maine on Sunday, April 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Be ready to do some hefty modifications to make this work. I bought this kit along with the Alpine CDE-W265T to go in my 2010 Civic LX. AC buttons stuck like most say they will so I had to use a dremel to make that opening larger (not a big deal). The plastic posts that the screws for the climate controls, airbag light and hazard lights button all cracked, but still held tight. Then, the biggest issue, was the metal cage/sleeve for the Alpine stereo didn't fit in the "double din" opening" in this kit. I had to melt/cut the lip on the top and the bottom of the opening to remove the lips to make it fit. Also, the plastic ring/jacket that came with this kit to go around the stereo also did not fit properly. After all of that, I got the stereo installed and the color of the dash kit matched near perfect as far as I can tell and all of the holding clips held tight once the kit was snapped in.

Pros: I got the Alpine CDE-W265BT installed

Cons: Climate control buttons stuck and needed modding to make them function Plastic posts for the screws all cracked "Double din" opening was too small for the metal cage/sleeve of my double din stereo

Scosche HA1561 Dash Kit

Written By CPete, North Bend Oregon on Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When snapped into my dash, this kit fits fine but the color is slightly off. All OEM parts and pieces mounted pretty well but you might need to use some fine grit sand paper on the lower point where the climate controls sit. I found that my lower buttons would stick.

Pros: Ease of install, price, OEM like look and feel

Cons: Stereo mounting brackets are plastic, I wish they were metal and more secure feeling, color doesn't match, needs some sanding to make pieces fit and function properly.

Scosche HA1561 Dash Kit

Written By Daniel D, Oregon on Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Poor manufacture and materials! But it does the job (Day 1 so far)

Pros: Correct color after first receiving Dark Gray instead of Toupe. I spotted the difference, but it was extremely difficult to see. Once Taupe arrived, though, I could tell immediately it was the right color. The item packaging has 3 boxes with colors (Dark Gray, Toupe, Blue something) - but none were checked-marked. So make sure you are not getting Toupe insted of Dark Gray and vice versa! Fits the dash

Cons: Crutchfield lacks instructions for this item. A few thing worth mentioning: Once a plastic vent is installed, it will pretty much block a bolt for the stereo unit to half of one support bracket. The 2 x 8mm bolts will somewhat align through the bottom, but will not fit the plastic screw posts - they are too big and the screws need to be self-threading. I ended up getting a pair of different screws that fit. Fortunately, I had a another dash kit so I was able to fit the screw while the support

2008 Civic Sedan - It's ok (will likely require modification)

Written By Miguel Sevilla, Washington on Sunday, March 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The color match is not great, but it's decent at this price. As others have noted here (and amazon reviews as well), the fit is not 100%. I had to take a dremel to the lower lip and bottom right corner where the buttons would stick. This was an extreme PITA, but I did eventually get it to fit. The retaining clips on the kit also pop out easily, so try not to pull it out once you've set it in there (I had to, due to fitment issues). I had no issues with the screw holes breaking (as others noted), but I did hand screw them in, and took care to not overtighten. Otherwise, it's a decent kit that gets the job done satisfactorily.

Pros: -Decent match to dark gray dashboard (for the price) -Other than the HVAC control area, there were no other fitment issues

Cons: The HVAC controls would stick when pushed, so the kit required some modification (sanded down lower lip and corner area of HVAC controls)

Modifications needed

Written By Searcy, Search on Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Required modifications to allow the buttons to pop out after they are pushed. Color is close but not a match.

Pros: Looks nice over all but...

Cons: Not a color match. Requires sanding on all ports where factory buttons will be installed otherwise buttons will not work properly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The color is perfect, but the climate control buttons will stick in the "on" position if you don't modify the opening. I spent an hour with a Dremel and drill to modify it so the buttons would pop back up after releasing them.

Color match is horrible and the HVAC buttons are a SERIOUS problem.

Written By Matt F, North Carolina on Monday, November 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's awful. You buy something to make your car look and function correctly, this does neither. The HVAC controls don't fit so the bottom buttons are always pushed down (I need to pull it back out now to sand it down (it seems this is a standard feature of this unit). The screw holes will break. The metal clips will fly off if you attempt to remove the unit to fit the HVAC issue. It's not even close to the correct color (Dark Grey) it's far too blue so I now have a 2 tone dash. It's not even caused by sun damage, it's just a totally different color and texture to the original.

As far as I can tell they didn't even test this on a car before mass producing them. Absolute garbage, find another way of doing it because this isn't the answer if you want your car to look anywhere near correct inside.

Pros: It fits, sort of.

Cons: The HVAC buttons are stuck down at the bottom (as many other reveiwers have also noticed. The screw holes will all break when screwing in (pretty much the first turn causes the break) The metal clips WILL fly off into the back of your dash if you try to take this off again to fix the HVAC issues. If you have dark grey it's not going to match the dark grey interior, even kind of. It's a completely different color. I now have 2 tone dash.

Written By Alvin, Phoenix,AZ on Sunday, November 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The color matches the bezel it replaced and the fit and finish looks OEM. The retaining clips also line up very well with the factory holes.

Pros: Color matches the dash. Fits tight when buttoned down.

Cons: The bottom portion of the cut for the HVAC buttons needed to be sanded down a bit because the buttons were catching causing them to stick down when pressed. Some of the screw posts behind the bezel cracked as I was tightening the screw holding down the HVAC controls, air bag light, and hazard button.

Mediocre but works

Written By JBricks, East Coast on Thursday, October 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks pretty good, but I had to use a dremel/sandpaper to bore out the holes so the climate control buttons would operate properly. Furthermore, every screw that went in sounded like it was going to crack the adapter. Also could use some more screw holes on the sides for more accurate mounting.

A 5-star product with 2-star machining.

Pros: Appearance.

Cons: Brittle, poor machining.

Installed into a 2008 Honda Civic. Had no issues and the color is a great match to the rest of the dash.

Pros: Looks "factory" once complete. All buttons and controls worked on mine without any modification to the assembly.

Cons: I was reading the instructions word-for-word and it listed only the step to remove the climate controls from the factory assembly but didn't list the hazard button or passenger airbag light. I felt stupid once I realized what was wrong after I placed the new assembly but the instructions were indeed missing those steps!

Written By Jordan, Georgia on Friday, April 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It looks good and is a pretty sturdy piece of plastic. Color is a little off, but it still looks good to me. Only problem I had, that others had mentioned, is that the screws will crack the plastic around the round bits the screws fit into. They still felt somewhat secure though. I think it's just the type of plastic. It's so dense, that it can't stretch at all, so it cracks a bit around that area.

Pros: Cheap, and everything fit just fine on my 2010 Civic LX.

Cons: Cracking plastic around the screw holes on the inside.

Overall the panel fit the car correctly. I had read several of the reviews by other people who bought it and they were true to fact. All of the holes in the fascia had to be trimmed to accommodate the factory switches, The color was very close but not exact and all of the screw posts where the switches mounted cracked while installing the screws. When the panel was installed in the dash of the car, the finished job was very good.

Pros: A good overall match and fit for the Honda civic.

Cons: Modifications had to be made to the factory switches.

Made installation not only possible but easy. It looks great and is very solid. If you break the plastic putting the screws in, you are getting in too big of a hurry. Take your time and do it right. You won't be disappointed. I did file the edge below the button panel because at first the bottom row of buttons were sticking but it only took a few minutes. I am very impressed at the quality and the price. I'm also thankful that these are available because the stock civic head unit is complete garbage.

Pros: Quality Price Stability Ease of installation

Cons: Needs some very slight fine tuning

Great purchase

Written By BrianK, Florida on Saturday, January 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this adapter to install a new Kenwood DDX-470 double-din receiver. It worked wonderfully, and the price was superb! I only had to do some very minor sanding on the bottom portion to keep my A/C buttons from sticking in the down position, but other than that, I had no trouble at all. The color is only slightly different than my original dash, but not enough to be of any concern, and is likely due to years of weathering and sun in the harsh Florida environment. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who needed to upgrade their factory stereo. You can't go wrong.

Pros: Great fit, superb price, gets the job done with ease

Cons: Color is slightly off (taupe), but not by much and slight sanding was needed to ensure A/C button controls remained free

Good kit, with a couple tweaks

Written By Matt T, Orlando FL on Wednesday, January 01, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this trim kit to replace the factory radio with a single DIN in my 2010 civic ex. It fits well and matches the dash color. I had the same issue some others mentioned with the AC buttons interfering with the cutout, but a file did the trick.

One other thing I ran into - there are 2 screws that screw into the bottom of the brackets to attach it to the dash. On the factory trim they are machine screws into a metal bracket, with this trim kit the screws go into plastic instead so the machine screws don't work - at least I couldn't get them to. I used a couple of extra Phillips pan head screws that were left over in the factory trim piece that held on the old radio. They worked much better. The holes didn't line up all that we'll for these screws either, but the plastic bends easy enough to make it work.

I would buy it again.

Pros: Matches the factory dash well. Good price.

Cons: A little extra work to get everything to work right once it's installed.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Once you get it in, it is in. They did a decent job with this for the price I think. There are a few issues with it, that requires some work, but it snaps in and makes no noise, so it is a definite functional unit.

Pros: It snaps right in.

Cons: If you buy this unit, you will need the following: 1. 220 grit sandpaper 2. Thinner screws You have to sand down the excess molding, use the factory molding as a guide otherwise your passenger airbag light and hazard button will not align correctly. You will need thinner screws because each of the screw slots are not the same size, they slight vary and half of them will crack and snap.Also once you mount the radio, the bottom screw holes will not align with the metal bracket under the dash

I like the kit, the fit with my temperature control buttons was a little off and I needed to do some filing. The fit after the trim was pretty good but the head unit is held at a slight upwards angle and causes some wash out. overall im satisfied for the price I paid and the color match was good.

Pros: Color match, ease of instillation

Cons: slight trim needed, angle of display

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put a DVD audio deck in my '09 civic using this adapter.

Over all it is a very good adapter however, there are a few minor annoyances.

First the color is slightly off. Not really that noticeable, and I kind of figured it wouldn't match perfectly so I wasn't disappointed. Anyway, I'm not sure that it would match if it came from Honda. I imagine that the color between batches of plastic don't match perfectly. Kind of like trying to match the paint of bedroom.

Second, is the fit of the components that are transferred from the old adapter to this new one. The passenger air bag light, emergency flasher button, and the climate controls get transferred and installed. The adapter had extra plastic material that interfered with the fit of the air bag light and climate controls. The air bag light didn't sit flush like it did in the factory adapter. I had to file off a bit of flash from the adapter, then it fit. Also the climate control buttons stuck. Again, with a little filing, the fit nicely. Make sure to test all the climate controls after installing them into this adapter, and sand any excess plastic to make everything fit.

I would recommend this adapter to anyone looking to upgrade their receiver. Just have a bit of emery cloth on hand when you begin. Expect a slight color mismatch. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results... I was.

Pros: Price and overall fit

Cons: Slight color mismatch, and minor sanding to make controls fit.

This was a very good quality product, the fitment was perfect with no deformities, and the color was almost spot on.

Pros: Fitment What you paid for

Good product

Pros: Great fit and color match.

Cons: No instructions for removal of factory unit since this product only applies to one make vehicle.

Works, but not a great product

Written By AndyG, Omaha, NE on Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product works, but I would by no means say it's "great" product. The screw holes are all super tight and a couple of them broke when re-attaching the controls. The day after I installed, my AC button started sticking. I had to literally pull down on the trim to get get button to release. The color is a bit off (not that bad IMO). The directions that came with were almost worthless.

Pros: Works for replacing Honda Civic factory radio

Cons: AC buttons stick, screw holes crack, color not exact match.

It works. The color is a little off, and the hvac controls were a little snug once screwed back in, but it gets the job done.

Pros: Fits perfectly.

Cons: Color/Snug HVAC controls.

Overall I am happy with this dash kit. Tho color of the kit is slightly different from my dashboard, but close enough that I can live I live with the difference. Two of the screws holes that hold the heating controls cracked while I was putting in the screws, but they still seemed to hold the screws firmly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this adapter for my new Alpine CDE147BT car deck as Crutchfield stated that it would fit my car. It did! My only complaint is that the color is different from the stock dash, but it is hardly noticable. It was easy to install and everything fit perfectly. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to replace their factory stereo system.

Pros: Easy to install, looks great, and it is sturdy.

Cons: Color is off a little bit....but not enough for me to care about it.....cause my system sounds awesome!

8th Gen Honda Civic DDin Dash Adapter

Written By 8thGen Civic Sedan, Stafford, Va on Monday, January 07, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Read reviews that the quality of this kit was questionable in regards to both fit and color. Small mounting holes stripping out and color just a shade off. It was such a concern for me that it match that I ordered an OEM DDin Gunmetal faceplate, but needed this kit for the internal side brackets. Without dis-assembly I thought it may be possible to use the original non-navigation system brackets but I ordered this kit just in case. The original brackets turned out to be completely different and this kits brackets came in handy. The color on this kits faceplate was a closer match than the OEM, but the form fit and function was of lesser quality and chose to go with the OEM although just a shade off in color. Otherwise, the kit includes everything you will need to go from a Din to DDin for this application.

Pros: Crutchfield provides this kit at a significant discount. It was worth not having to chase down appropriate brackets upon realizing original Din brackets would not work. It works great if you rather not pay OEM prices.

Cons: Quality of the mounting points were questionable, plastic looked of lesser quality particularly from the backside, although it may have worked.

This is obviously NOT a product made by "HONDA", i could tell right from when i handled it; the plastic just felt different. the color was not exactly the same but close enough.

Pros: fit was exact. color was mostly good match.

Cons: the screw holes for your parts needing to attach are very weak and will split; be extremly careful when aiming and starting the threads for attaching the parts like the climate control and hazard flasher button and airbag light; I also had to just slightly shave off the bottom edge below where the buttons for Rear defroster and recerc. buttons are because the fit was very tight causing the two buttons to stick in when pressed.

I am very happy with this kit! It's easy to install, color match is great, and looks like a factory piece!

Pros: Easy install, looks great, fits perfect!

Cons: Have to shave just a hair of the hole for the thermastat buttons, but you won't anything aftermarket that doesn't require some type of adjusting.

This dash adapter was a perfect fit in my 2007 Honda Civic Si. No mods at all. The only problem is that the color is not exact, but it is close enough that no one will notice unless they are looking for it. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Pros: Fit perfectly and needed no modification.

Cons: Color is a shade or two lighter, but it doesn't look bad.

Pretty simple install, however I had to file down the ac control button area so that it fit correctly, for the price of it I kinda expected that.

Pros: Cheap, simplistic install, allowed me to replace my factory radio.

Cons: Very very very close to the texture and color of the piece it was replacing, but not exact, no one entering my car will ever notice. Required slight personal editing to fit the ac controls.

light-grey - NOT taupe

Written By Discoverer, RI on Friday, July 27, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unfortunately/apparently, it is TOO difficult to match the stock 'taupe' (a brown variation) dashboard color. This is definitely light-grey - NOT taupe.

Pros: Screw holes seemed in the right places ... via the mold. Mounting bracket is lighter weight (plastic) than stock (metal).

Cons: color STILL not matching taupe dash pieces

Read the other reviews and you should be fine

Written By Eric, Washington, PA on Monday, June 04, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Using this in a 2008 Civic... I was a little unsure of how the install would go based on other reviews, but everything went okay and I am happy with my purchase. Doing my homework (both here and around the internet) paid off. The adapter fits perfectly and the color match is very good, at least on the dark gray. You might notice a slight difference depending on lighting, but it isn't glaring. Install went okay, but you need to go slow. Take your time and don't rush. I followed an earlier reviewer's advice and heated up the screws immediately before installing each one. A few seconds with a lighter did the trick for me. I only cracked one post, and that was because I went a little too fast and overtightened it a bit. Fortunately, it still held in place. The only other issue I ran into was with the bottom role of temperature controls sticking. It was an easy fix though; Removed that module, sanded down the bottom part of that opening, and all was good.

Pros: Fits, good color match

Cons: Easy to break if you aren't careful
