Master sheet

Written By Brad, Strum, WI on Sunday, November 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Invaluable. I would not have been able to do the install without it.

Pros: Very clear

Cons: none at all

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

Master sheet

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great resource. The master sheet made installing my stereo and speakers so much easier. The description and pictures were so nice to have and are a valuable item that Crutchfield provides!

Pros: Makes installation easy and fast!

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

Written By Julio, Castlerock, CO on Friday, March 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Master Sheet For Ford F-150

Ford F-150 Master Sheets

Pros: Easy to download & follow, more than worth its weight in gold

Cons: None that I can determine

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

2005 Tundra Master Sheet

Written By Adam C, Chesterfield, VA on Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The MasterSheet provided me with step by step directions to install my aftermarket door speakers. Very easy to follow. I will keep the MasterSheet so when I replace the factory deck, my install will go smoothly. Two thumbs up!!!!

Written By Merrix w, smyrna,ga on Wednesday, July 17, 2013

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

Crutchfield MasterSheet

Written By Luis, Orange Park, FL on Friday, February 22, 2013

This was the first time purchasing from Crutchfield, I will most certainly be making all my future purchases from them. The little things that no one else thinks of or cares to think of are what I notice. I received these instructions via email and with my product without even asking for them. Made my install so easy and quick.

Pros: Detailed exactly for my car

Cons: none

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Written By lewsays, Mesa, AZ on Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Very nice to have some instructions specific to my vehicle and the photos were basically accurate. It would have been 5 stars if it included the detail about needing to ground the aftermarket head unit. Apparently the stereo in the '05 Lancer is grounded through the chassis of the stereo, so grounding the new unit was needed. Not a deal breaker, just had to get some extra connectors to get it done.

Pros: Good basic instruction set for the receiver and speaker installation. Included in the price on my purchase.

Cons: Missing info on grounding for the '05 Lancer.

Everything worked exactly as noted.

Pros: Great to keep the install fees in your pocket.

Cons: Too bad for the chain stores.

Very helpful, but needed internet for more help

Written By Anonymous, Laramie, WY on Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Good overall; however, when detaching vent wires didn't say where they were. I had to get on a subaru forum to find out that they're way in the back, and if you get down next to the gas pedal and look up, you can see one section of the vent.

Not as clear as expected

Written By CW, Quad Cities, IA on Tuesday, February 19, 2013

The basics of the instructions were good but there were details about the installation that were not. I had to call customer support a few times to figure out that some wires needed to be cut so to bypass the harness.

Pros: Descriptive, pictures helped.

Cons: Not complete.

You guys rock

Written By Happy guy, Ferrysburg, MI on Tuesday, February 19, 2013

You guys rock! I used to pay to have radios installed till I heard about cructhfield this took me 20 mins start to finish and was just like the master sheet said it would be! No surprises!

Pros: Great!

Cons: None

Instructions seemed easy, but ended up being superfluous because my speaker grills popped off. No door disassembly required. Still, C'field guidance is always top notch.

Well Done
