Our take on the Scosche HA1561 Dash Kit

by Ken Nail
Scosche

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.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 1 year.

I had to take the dashboard apart several times for various reasons and no matter what I did it go back the way it is supposed to.

Great install kit for the price

Written By idtwins, Gresham,OR on Sunday, April 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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!

Works well once installed, but be careful.

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.

Written By Steve Bx, Bronx NY on Sunday, January 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Great adapter

Written By Fix, West Monroe on Sunday, January 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Not bad for the money but has some minor issues

Written By Proonah, Pearland, Tx on Thursday, December 26, 2013
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.

Worth it.

Written By Danothered, Lakewood, CO on Sunday, December 01, 2013
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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Good fit but bad color match

Written By U.M., Hartford, CT on Monday, April 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good fit, easy to install however my biggest complaint is the color match. It is not the exact color of my 2010 Honda Civic lx-s . I have a grey dashboard. When putting on the heater vent and heater control some of the screw did crack the rear plastic. Since the weight of these things is not much, I did not get any squeak sound or any physical mismatch from it. Therefore if you are going to order and want to upgrade your factory radio and you can live with not the exact color match then go for it.
Pros:
fit, functional
Cons:
color match is off, rear screw on of unit is not strong

Nearly Flawless

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The only thing I'd change about this kit would be providing side mounts that would allow for the screws that came with the Alpine radio to fit. Aside from that, the color matched perfectly, its sturdy, and I'm not getting any squeaking or creeking noises inside the can. I'd definitely buy another one of these kits.
Pros:
Matches the civic dashboard color, sturdy.
Cons:
Hard to mount the radio, you may need different screws.

Scosche OEM Adapter

Written By Sam, Kent, Ohio on Wednesday, April 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As with previous buyers I also found that the self-tapping screws (which came with the kit) when inserted into their screw holes seemed to crack the post some. A somewhat over-tight screw would definitely strip any of these holes. But with caution and patience I was able to swap the stock componants over to this one and mount it all in the dash succesively. Looks good and nothing has yet to come loose.
Pros:
Looks good.
Cons:
Cracked receiving posts.

Dash Adapter

Written By sandnomad, KY on Wednesday, April 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Poor installation instructions. Color was off. Mounting brackets were plastic and didn't align well. The brackets should definitely have been made of metal. The OEM mounting was all metal and very strong. This was a really cheap and some areas cracked when using the installing the screws, which are required to stabilize the unit! My advice would be to modify the unit so that the OEM metal mountings could be used, or Schoshe should make the mounting brackets of metal.
Pros:
It fit!
Cons:
Cheap plastic mounting brackets. Very poor instructions. Poor color match. Very, very poor quality.

Was exactly what I needed. Installed myself on a 2010 civic and it fit perfectly. I'm not sure if they updated the product but I had no problems with splitting.
Pros:
Looks great, got plenty of compliments that it looked great
Cons:
Was a little frustrating getting the knobs for the temp and fan speed since it had no instruction on removing them. Simple flat head screwdriver and some nervous prying fixed it though

dash adapter

Written By Bill, Parma, OH on Monday, March 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The color and finish look to be a identicle to the factory piece and everything fit perfectly for intalling a double din head unit. It does angle the radio up a little more than I would like which makes the display on the radio catch a little more light from the window. This makes the display, which is barely bright enough to read in daylight even worse. I also had toe same post splitting problem as other people. The posts seem long enough and the holes seem the same diameter as the factory piece so I think the problem is with the type of plastic used. Honda's is less brittle and more flexible. I read the review where someone heated the screws, good idea, unfortunately I read it after the install. At least the parts that hang by the split posts still seem secure and weigh almost nothing.
Pros:
Fits and looks good.
Cons:
Brittle plastic screw posts. Make sure head unit has a bright display.

Better than nothing

Written By Zack, WI on Thursday, January 19, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First of all, I would have to agree with the other reviews about the color match being a few shades off. It looks ok, but is clearly not an exact match or texture. As for the "post splitting" issue, i simply heated up the stock screws with a propane torch. I didn't get them real hot, just a few seconds in the flame. This worked perfectly, not a single crack in the plastic screw posts. They seemed to soften the plastic just enough so it wouldn't crack or split. I also had to file the opening for the ac/heater control so the buttons wouldn't get held up and stick on the surrounding cover. After the cautious reinstallation, it looks pretty good. The adaptor does clip into the dash well and fits great, I just wish I didn't have to take the extra steps for fit and finish. Thanks to all the people who reviewed this before me. I knew what to look for when doing it myself.
Pros:
Fits in with the rest of the dash very well
Cons:
Color match and texture is a bit off. Caution is needed when reinstalling the stock components into the adaptor. Minor modification is needed to get a perfect ac/heater control fit.

So-So

Written By Roger, Ohio on Tuesday, January 17, 2012
 
The quality of this adapter leaves room for improvement. As I transferred components to the new adapter, twisting the self-tapping screws into the holes, I could hear a snapping sound. Upon close inspection I could see that the plastic had actually cracked so the screw was no longer held in place as firmly as would otherwise be the case. And I had to manually file the opening of a couple of components to make them fit properly. This was most notable on the climate controls where the buttons on the entire second row would stick when pressed. Good thing I checked this before installing the adapter in the dash.

Given all this, I was holding my breath that the thing would actually align properly when the time came to install it. As it turned out, it was a perfect fit.
Pros:
Good color match; Perfect fit in the dash
Cons:
holes are off a little...nearly all of them. Plastic receiving holes for screws tend to split and crack.

Not a simple drop in install

Written By Berserker, VA on Thursday, June 02, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed the kit it in a 2010 LX Civic and it looks fine, but I had issues with the install. First off is the "post splitting" issue. The kit requires use of the screws from the OEM dash to attach the vent, hazard light button, air bag indicator, and air conditioning controls. The OEM screws are a little longer and slightly larger in diameter than #8 half inch screws. I attached all the parts using the OEM screws, and at least half of the posts split. Clearly the holes in the posts are too small.

I was not happy with the situation and Crutchfield sent me another kit. Instead of using the OEM screws I used #8 screws. This time I slowly threaded the #8 screws into each hole, and I still got 1 nice split and a couple of minor ones. I then tried boring the holes out with a 5/32 drill bit, and that totally resolved the issue (using #8 screws) as I got no further splits.

The other issue I had was the air conditioning/heat controls being pressed up against the lip of the hole in the new dash kit causing one of the buttons to stick. I filed the area down, and this resolved the issue.

So in conclusion, this thing requires some extra work to get it in properly. I wish I could get an OEM aftermarket dash kit, but that does not appear to be an option on a 2010 Civic (at least per my local dealer). I want to give Crutchfield a big thumbs up for their support. They've been awesome both times I've contacted them with issues.

Cheaply made. The plastic cracks as you screw items in. Buttons dont look snug, such as passenger airbag notifier. Did not fit my new stereo as expected: Couldn't attach alpine radio without removing outer metal shell, which means I'll have to remove the whole dash to access the back of the radio.

I will be calling Crutchfield.

Installation was a breeze. The color matched as well. My only minor complaint is the
angle of my new deck. It faces upward a bit rather than outward. I also would have liked
to have the option of putting a plate over the opening rather than have another empty
space.

This kits fits perfectly into the factory dash and matches the contours, holds the Double DIN stereo securely, and all the controls turn freely but...

the color does not match at all. Crutchfield offered to refund and pay for return shipping so I will be buying the OEM dash assembly from Honda.

Installed on a 08 civic sedan the dark grey dashboard. The color is off by a few shades compared to the stock dash but not too noticeable. The fit for the clips were perfect. Had to file the opening around the AC controls as the buttons were sticking. Will have to wait and see how it holds up. But, it seems to work.

This "adapter" is a poorly made thin and flimsy replacement for the factory dash. The plastic cracks when you bolt on your dash items (vent, lights, etc.) even if your careful.
It never snapped into the dash properly, almost like it wasn't made for my civic.... Crutchfield is refunding my money, don't waste yours!

Neat and Clean

Written By John, Northern Nevada on Friday, January 16, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this kit to install my Pioneer DEH-P5000UB. This kit along with the wiring harness adapter made my car stereo installation a snap. The only slight hiccups was that the opening seemed a bit narrow. When I tried to slide the radio installation sleeve in the opening it was a bit narrow. So I left the back mounting screws a bit loose until I got the sleeve in place then tightened the screws. Also the factory face plate had 2 extra screws that held the face plate to the dash that were located in the small storage compartment under the radio. Those two screws are no longer used. So the unit is not as secure as factory. However the installed panel looks great!! It seems to be secure enough it does not wiggle, vibrate or squeak. I am so happy that this product is available for my car. I love my new radio. I look forward to driving to work now and enjoying my new sounds.

This fits and does the job. The color is good with my dark gray, and it pops right in. The receiver support is a bit lacking compared to what was holding my stock radio/cd player. This only has 2 screws on each side of the plastic brackets; the stock one was metal and completely supported the radio/cd unit on all sides. It's too bad it wouldn't fit into the Scosche unit. Also, instructions were lacking for this unit and for this part of the installation in the Crutchfield mastersheet instructions.

I bought this for my 07 civic sedan the dark grey dashboard. The color is off by a few shades compared to the stock dash but not too noticeable. The fit for the clips were perfect. Now the hole in the dash for the stereo is where it gets tricky. For a regular single din stereo it fits well, but for a double din some adjustments need to be made. I actually needed to make the hole a little bit but cutting it with a saw. After the cutting the stereo fit good but wished I didnt have to go to all that extra trouble.

Installation is pretty simple. My AC button in the bottom right corner stuck after installing. I had to file down that corner to allow the button to be pushed and not stick. Color is not an exact match but it looks okay. I used the sleeve that came with my receiver instead of screwing my radio directly to the brackets, it pushes the top part of the brackets out, but the screws in the bottom pocket keep it tight.

Like everyone has said it is a tad light but you only notice if your look for it.
I was very happy with the way it fit, very easy. The only thing i did not like
is that the braces that hold in the deck are plastic, also the screws that
came with my head unit were not long enought to reach threw the plastice
and into the deck, I bought the kenwood DDX8017. Also the 2 8mm bolts
were very hard to put back in becuse the plastic kept moving around. I just
ended up leaveng them out! there is like 9 clips holding the deck in place.

Color is off, OEM Hardware too large

Written By Nick, Dallas, Texas on Monday, July 28, 2008
 
The fit is great, the quality is great, the texture of the dash adapter matches perfectly! I have an Si Sedan ('08) with the dark grey dashboard, and the adapter is too light. I would give it a 7 out of 10. The OEM hardware that was taken out of the original dash did not fit into the Scosche. The Metra dash adapter had a color that was much closer, and even includes hardware, but the build quality is cheaper. I tried both, and ended up using the Scosche simply because I had no choice. I hope that a better matching product comes out soon.

I installed this adapter kit in my 2008 Honda Civic LX yesterday and it works great. Nice, tight fit, holds my Alpine cd deck secure and looks great, like original equipment.
I read an earlier review about how much lighter the gray color was. I have a dark gray dash and the color of the piece is slightly lighter, but hardly noticeable. The manufacturer might have adjusted their color to get closer to original equipment color. I couldn't be happier with the results.
