Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed a Pioneer AVH-4100NEX into my Mercedes-Benz C240 and this MasterSheet was extremely helpful. It was able to tell me all the ins and outs of my car. Things I didn't even know existed in terms of panel removal, what tools I needed, etc.

Master Sheet for VW Jetta

Written By DennisH, Washington on Sunday, May 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Master Sheet was very detailed. I purchased the Master Sheet first to gauge the difficulty of the job. Later I purchased the speakers from Crutchfield. Without the Master Sheet I would not have attempted this and would have paid well over $100 to have a shop do the install.

Pros: Very detailed including tools needed.

Cons: none

MasterSheet (2001 Toyota 4Runner)

Written By Michael F., California on Thursday, May 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The MasterSheet is very helpful in removing the factory OEM stereo from the vehicle. However, I was in hopes that it would have contained the information pertaining to the wiring identification / hookup.

Pros: Useful in removing the stock OEM stereo from the vehicle

Cons: Does not contain wiring identification / hookup

F150 mastersheet

Written By Rt willis, Michigan on Wednesday, May 06, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The MasterSheet was helpful to a point, I was able to remove the front panel and stereo with instructions from the mastersheet's help. But, what I was really hoping for was more wire identification ie. Color and location for speaker and amp tie in.

Pros: Photos were helpful

Cons: Could have been less generic and more model specific.

Ford Explorer 2000 2 dr.sport Problem

Written By Michael51, Arizona on Friday, May 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well had a problem with the radio install for my Ford Explorer 2000 2 dr.sport ,the U shaped wires did not pull the radio out,heard the "click" but no go ,so removed the dash and radio all in one pc,pushed clips from the side and it slide out .Metra 70-1771 Receiver Wiring Harness was easy- color to color . The plastic slide(in the dash for the radio) had a lip around the back edge,(Pioneer FHX-720BT 2-DIN CD Receiver) radio would not slide in ,had to cut the lip off ( not hard to do with a razor knife) Metra 95-5817 Double DIN Installation Dash Kit worked well ,good fit ! So all and all the Crutchfield MasterSheetT was very helpfull ,I would buy it again, my explorer was exception to the rule . Front speaker only had 3 screws ,they didn't put in 4 .I was prepared for Murphy he's family after 60 + years LOL ! Hope this helps. GOTTA LOVE FORD !

Pros: tools,clear step by step, screw location and type .Picture good

Cons: some trucks are different .

This is the second time I've used these MasterSheets. I really like how they are well written with included diagrams (the pictures are very helpful). It takes the guesswork out of trying to figure how to take your dash apart. Thanks Crutchfield!

Job done correctly

Written By John, MO on Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The manual was ordered for replacing speakers in the doors or a 2005 Chevy Cav. Got them replaced, and I also got to replace the back speakers, and even the headunit. Because those instructions were also included. It wasn't my first time using it, I also used a manual from MasterSheet for my 2008 Liberty. For the price, you can't beat it for a job done the right way. You go into a task with confidence when you haven't messed with the task previously. Just as long as you have the MasterSheet.

Pros: Pictures, step by step instructions, how to do more than just what you originally ordered the manual for, pdf file so you don't have to have a bunch of papers to deal with, price is worth every penny, gets the job done

Cons: none

1993 Volvo 240 Install

Written By Dave, Norheast PA on Friday, June 06, 2014

The MasterSheet for the Volvo 240 (1993) was good as far as it went. What it didn't include was details about how to access the harness and connector connected to the external amplifier. Since the stock external amplifier is bypassed with this install, access to that connector is necessary. The wire harness set included the correct connector for it, but said that it was located below the steering column. On this model, it is actually located below the HVAC controls in the center console, and is little tricky to get to and remove. Thankfully a person who reviewed the wire harness provided the necessary information in their review.

Pros: Procedure that was described was accurate.

Cons: An essential part of the installation procedure was omitted.

Mastersheet Goodness

Written By Bryan P., 37686 on Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little gem helped more than I thought it would. My wife has an 09 Ford Escape XLT and it has very well hidden points of contact on the interior. Plus, I was unfamiliar with the car so I didn't really know where to begin with taking the dash out. I swear I had the head unit out inside of 4 minutes. It may seem a little pricey, but if you're at all unsure about how to go about your install, this is the ONLY way to go. It will tell you up front exactly the tools you need, as well as any tips or tricks they deem relevant. The best part is, it covers every part of the stereo, so if need to know how to pull out the door speakers later, that's included too. The only thing I could say negative about the whole process, is that it wasn't possible to buy this online, I had to call them and order. The guy I spoke to was good, and the transaction was over fast, but I was told the sheet would come in the confirmation email and it didn't. I had to call them back and get it emailed to me because I had a very limited amount of time to work with. That turned out to be a wise move, because I didn't officially even get the mastersheet until 2 days later. Something to work on guys.

Pros: Extremely comprehensive and accurate

Cons: a bit pricey difficult to purchase

Awesome

I'm a do it yourselfer and with the MasterSheet it gave me everything I needed to know to make sure I did not break any panels while removing them. It gave me detailed instructions and even had images to go with them. Awesome product.

Pros: Detailed instructions Easy to understand Visual help

Cons: None

Simple and worth the money

Written By Scott, Logan, UT on Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the money, this saved me a lot of time and hassle. The diagrams are simple and there was a diagram for every audio part in the truck. I could have found similar information had I looked hard enough on the internet, but that is never guaranteed, nor as well done. I had a minor issue getting it e-mailed to me (the automated system took 48 hours), but I called in a after 3 hours and they were able to e-mail me one manually so I could get started.

Pros: Simple easy to understand diagrams

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was a basic master sheet that shows you how to install head unit and speakers. I thought it would have given me more details on the vehicles wiring. But it's cool

Pros: Good for a beginning do it yourselfer.

Cons: I thought it would have been more detailed

Didnt come with the speakers I purchased?

Written By Fred A, Azle, Tx on Thursday, July 11, 2013

For some reason crutchfield didn't include these with my purchase. I had to look up how to remove the door panel off of my 93 ranger on YouTube. Somewhat simple process but instructions would have been nice.

MasterSheet 2000 VW Jetta

Written By Anonymous, Payson, Utah on Thursday, June 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall a great help. It would be more helpful to include specifics on wiring connections/connectors for us novice installers. Component speakers are definitely more challenging and it would be nice is the mastersheet helped address the installation of such products more specifically.

Pros: Easy to understand and comprehend.

Cons: See review aboce

makes life on install for most much easier.

Written By VinnyinRI, Cranston, RI on Sunday, April 07, 2013

Takes the hassle out of install. I'm not good with electric at all and this helped out a lot along with the wiring harness.

Pros: Easy to follow

Cons: none
